If the Jets had a legit #1 center for Kane to play alongside, and the Jets were consistent playoff participants, Kane - and every other Jets player - would likely be very VERY happy playing in Winnipeg.
Some players will want the bright lights of a bigger city, and they have that chance to change teams when they become UFA's. But, to me the key is having a consistent playoff team.
And... with TNSE, the unbelieveable fan experience at MTSC, and great winters (if last year is any indication
) players would love to be a part of it. Miss the playoffs for 5+ yrs, then no one will be too interested. TNSE and Chevy will work very hard to create a winning culture here.
The teams that seem to be 'hot' right now in terms of player interest are mostly playoff teams - the Detroits, Pittsburghs, Philly's and even SJ. But players aren't scrambling to join the Islanders and TML (oh, wait aren't they in a big city?) or Columbus, etc. But if they were perennial playoff teams, that would all change, IMO.
