Another Winnipeg Kings fan here with my opinion.
The Jets moved not because lack of interest, but cause the canadian dollar then was horrible and the Jets had a subpar arena with a lack of ownership. We already had hundreds of people flood downtown Winnipeg when that article was published. People here are hockey crazy.
Winnipeg itself is a beautiful city, with it's problem areas (what city doesn't). In particular our "native" problem (hate to say it but stereotypes are true), though downtown has got a lot better in later years. I don't feel unsafe being downtown anymore at night. The city itself is growing and improving every year and the stereotypes of Winnipeg are just mental.
Our summers are really nice, and there are only a few months of winter (which can get pretty cold but it's not even that bad.), so Ilya Bryzgolov can suck it. Plus we have my favorite microbrewery here in Fort Garry.
All that being said, i'll still be rooting for my Kings when they play, nothing will ever change that
