LOL, it IS hard to watch that, kind of get choked up seeing it.
Teemu let our generation dream of perhaps getting to the cup. Every kid that I know of that could hold a stick and stand on the street, or glided around a rink imagined himself as Selanne. Winnipeg had a superstar for our generation.

The Teemu fiasco broke the fans hearts, traded away, and then the team was sold off.
It was kind of like being stabbed in the guts, a twist of the knife and then your heart being ripped out.

I watched perhaps 10 games after we lost the Jets...if that, and not whole games either.
When we got the Jets back and there was talk of Teemu pondering a return it was almost perfect...until he decided that he was going to stick it out with the Ducks.
But without hesitation I think that almost everyone would have him back in an instant, just for one last season. He will always be a Jet, and he will always have a place to call home here in Winnipeg.

Ok enough sappy stuff, Iíve got to go watch some hockey fights, followed by a best of Barney Stinson.
