Don't you listen to primetime sports with Bob Mcgowan and company? A few years ago, when it was rumored that Thompson was part of an ownership group interested in bringing team to Winnipeg, McGowan and his cohorts said Winnipeg was simply a stopgap until a second arena was built in GMA of Toronto to host a second NHL team. At that point, say 5 - 7 years down the road, Thompson and Chipman would move the team to Toronto where they would make tens of millions in profits.

We need to enjoy this team while we can. They will be gone before 2020. Bob Mcgowan said so.
