Sorry, but forget the road trips from 1,000 Winnipegers to anywhere. Why? Because we are past that point. Quebec is today where Winnipeg was many years ago as far as trying to land an NHL team.
The first time an NHL preseason game was held in Winnipeg, it sold out because everyone went... Ooooo we better go to the game to show the NHL we want hockey. Well guess what, it means nothing as TNSE and the NHL have said. Its a money grab for the preseaon teams, nothing more.
In the case of Quebec its..... Oooooo lets go to the Island and show the NHL we want hockey. Hey I applaude the people that go, but realize, the NHL does not give a Bettman dump about emotional displays when it comes to getting a team. You want a team? Build the building then do what TNSE is doing. Ask quitely and politely behind the curtain.
So, to answer your question.. will Winnipeg fans consider stepping up?
YES!. I'm 1st in line to buy my STs. We will step up when the time comes.
