I don't think it has to be a heritage classic, just a regular matchup between the Jets and Wild should they end up in the same division (which would seem logical). They're both cold enough to pull it off regularly and there is substantial kinship between Minnesota and Winnipeg/Manitoba already. Play a home and home series, both outdoors as DYB17 suggested.

It would be nice to have a heritage classic but this would be a great tradition to start on an annual basis without the need for input from the league itself. Minnesota seems like a natural rival for the Jets - proximity, climate, familiarity of the people in the two regions, both have lost and regained NHL teams. It all works.
