I believe that geography only comes into play wrt rivalries when there is a rivalry already in place between the markets. e.g. Calgary and Edmonton. All other rivalries are built up by playing against each other, playoffs, fans and to a much lesser extent, media.

I also think that being in an all US Conference is not going to 'bury' us media wise. On the contrary. I think it is going to boost us. More people in the States will know the Jets and Winnipeg because we will play them and be rivals. People in Canada will know what is up with the Jets by default. Markets like Toronto don't think anything exists outside of them anyways.

Jets 1.0 put Winnipeg on the world map in a huge way and 2.0 will enhance that.
