On top of that the Twin cities has 18 Fortune 500 companies in the area.

Anyways, is there any large corporate base in Winnepeg? I just don't see Winnepeg being able to support a NHL team. Lack of population and lack of Corporate support.
First off, its "Winnipeg", not "Winnepeg".

Secondly, the North Stars were not getting many ppl to the games, especially in the last few years. They were rock bottom iin attendance for 2 straight seasons from 89-91.
