Get ready for another western Canadian team and a few more ass-kickings every winter. Word this morning that Winnipeg has a better NHL team than the Oilers on the way.
Some may feel it’s unfair for Winnipeg to get such a quality team by default, but those who remember the WHA teams getting flattened by the NHL will know this is just a case of the hockey Gods making things right.
One more Harold Ballard injustice (he was behind the noxious expansion rules) made right. 1,000 more to go.
Congratulations to my friend Dean Belanger and the many other Jets fans I’ve met along the way. Don Wittman probably talked God’s ear off, so I’d give him some credit, too.
Here’s hoping they call the team “Jets”, but “Polar Bears” is a strong rumor. If so, they’ll be the Bears by Christmas.
