That said, I don't think Winnipeg ownership is too annoyed with this setup. Makes things much easier for them with the large number of central time starts.
Yeah I don't see how Winnipeg is upset with this. Sure they'd love to play western canada. But I think the Wild and Jets will be their biggest rivalry. It's a relatively short drive, and the Canadians love coming down to Minnesota to shop anyway. I'd imagine we'd see a lot of 50-50 crowds at the X for those games.
