This should be rather readily apparent in Winnipeg. I love watching the players no question but without a couple of guys that spent considerable time, effort and money to bring a team back to Winnipeg we'd be watching teams from other cities on television only (ok, web too). Without an ownership group, ergo 'owners', there is no hockey in Winnipeg. It applies in a lot of other centres as well.
