You'd think that Winnipeg getting a team back and righting that wrong would slow things down a bit, but it seems to have made things worse. Not trying to start a riot, but Quebec fans and those hoping to see the return of the Nordiques have been far more civilized than the Jets crew. That makes it easy for me to root for their return. I don't want it to be at the expense of my team, but if it comes to that, I know they are going to a better home.
They're like sharks (not San Jose Sharks mind you, sharks that 'play' in liquid water). The Thrashers gave them a taste for blood and instead of satiating their appetite, they're now in a feeding frenzy. Of course, there's lingering sentiments of injustice. The Jets & Nordiques are 2 teams they really wanted to get back and with a very active US expansion over the '90s (and 2000), all Canada got out of it was Ottawa. They want more teams considering how much Canada has grown since 1990. My question... First was Winnipeg, next comes Quebec City. Next after that would be GTA2 obviously, but let's talk theoreticals and say GTA2 gets a team somewhere. Where next? Would there be calls for team #4 in Ontario? Would it be Saskatoon or Regina? Where would there be calls for another Canadian city to get a team? Or would their desire for new (or refurbished) NHL teams be satisfied by then?
