Agreed.

While Winnipeg has a population base of only ~750,000, the actual hockey market is larger than Florida, TB, PHX, etc.

Season tickets (~13,000) are sold out for the next 3-5 years (on contract) with a 8000 person wait-list (capped).

Everyone around the city wears Jets gear, the Jets special edition licence plates are soldout (10,000+), and there was near rioting vs SHAW TV last year when the TSN Jets channel wasn't broadcasting the first period of the Penguins home game.

That's a "big" hockey market to me.

They make money regardless of population
