You're not here long, and you're essentially a tourist, so I would stick with

(1) the exchange district (pubs, clubs, rests);
(2) the forks (pubs, rests, some history and views, if weather is nice); and/or
(3) osbourne village (ambiance)

These are unique to Winnipeg and will make your stay enjoyable without having to venture too far out of the centre of the city and the area where the arena is, and will enable you to avoid the cookie cutter chain experience of pretty much every north american city.

Most of the other suggestions are just personal preferences from locals who want to project their own experiences, having known the city and its quirky rests and bars which are probably going to leave you out of our way.

Have a safe drive ... that's a tough one in winter!
