I get pissed off at the many Canadians that view this is our game and should only be played here in front of 'real' fans that 'get' it. These feelings are most prominent in Toronto (and its media), where you can sell out a team for years without making the playoffs and without winning a cup in over 40 years.

The only reason the Cdn teams are viable again is because the CAD has appreciated so much against the USD. If the dollar slides back into the mid-70s against the USD, Winnipeg is dead with Ottawa and Edmonton not too far behind.

I believe there are a lot of latent NYI fans waiting for a decent team again. Fix the building situation, and the team will be fine. Move to another good building situation in the NYC area and they'll be fine.

The media clowns in Toronto are just talking out of their ***** again... as usual.
