I mean was Winnipeg ever that bad in terms of filling the stands as Phoenix is now?
Plus I bet the people of Manitoba never allow their Jets to move ever again and will be far more supportive of the team if it's brought back.
I can see it selling out the first couple seasons.
It wasn't the fans who let the team go, back than the Canadian dollar was no where near where it is now. Plus the building was well below NHL standards now a days. The fans sold that place out. They just lost huge amounts of money cause of revenue streams and the cost of currency exchange between the Canadian and American dollar. Add in the fact you had a commissioner who had a hunger for American Expansion he took that team out of Winnipeg faster than you could say Jets. I wish Gary fought as hard to keep the team in Winnipeg as much he's trying to keep the team in Phoenix. The team needs to be back where it shouldn't have left.
