Different situation than 15-20 years ago. Vancouver had lousy attendance in the mid 90s and no one is questioning it today. Hockey has grown in popularity in Canada from those days. Winnipegers know what it is like to be without an NHL team, they won't let it happen again, IMO. The long term scenario has yet to be played out but I am confident in continued fan support regardless of the competitiveness of the team.
