Looking at Maricopa County, which grows by the population of Winnipeg every year and a half
No, it grew by just by 951,000 residents in about 9 years, in an area spread out over 9203 square miles. This works out to a population density of 437 per square mile.
Winnipeg has 642,000 in it's urban area as of the 2006 census, which are concentrated in a 173 square mile area. Urban density is 3700 per square mile.
Glendale has 208,000 people, and added 6,000 people between 2000 and 2007.
As for your claim that Winnipeger's are apathetic to the return of the NHL, I assume you haven't looked too deeply into the issue and are making emotional arguments not based in fact whatsoever. I think tnatibaH's answer is more in line with reality. Although I can't find any figures on what % of people consider themselves hockey fans in each respective city, I'm willing to bet that the % is much higher in Winnipeg than Glendale.
