Just a thought, cause I remember a few Thrasher fans suggesting thats something we could continue doing.

I've been following this Jets saga from Pittsburgh ever since jetsowner.com started but idk...you guys might as well yell "McDonalds", or "PNC Bank" and give another corporation free advertising.

TRUE NORTH has a double meaning. It's also named after the leadership concept talked about by Stephen Covey in his books. True North means to use a moral compass as your guide, not whatever way the wind blows. These leadership concepts were huge when Chipman was first putting together True North. It's also totally the way True North runs their business. You can see the principles in the way they go about their business and the way they treat people. The little notch at the top of the emblem which is the north point on the compass is a symbol which has been used in this regards. If you understand these concepts you will understand why the team is in good hands, and why we will have a great and classy NHL organization for years to come.
For instance it shows the long term thinking of going with a guy Claude Noel they know well, as opposed to Ramsay who while he might be a good coach and have provided consistency for a short term gain going forward, but they don't know well enough to understand if he fits in with the True North principles.

I hope no one gets louder during singing True North tonight, as they should be at top volume singing the ENTIRE national anthem!

I like it. The guys are used to having stuff yelled during the anthem (KNIGHTS).

Not really OT, but...would you have people that would be offended by that? Yelling knights here was a big controversy. Some felt it was disrespecting the national anthem. I didn't. If you are yelling words that are already in the anthem, I don't think there is anything wrong with it. You are just singing selected words really loud lol.

I think it would be cool, and it seems quite fitting.

I would sincerely hope that almost everyone knows our national anthem... I give some leeway if you've just moved from another country, but it's not hard to learn.

I still know 3 different prayers from my horrible year in a Catholic school. That was kinda OT, but hey.

I doubt you'll be able to project "True North" any louder than the place will be singing, but good luck sirs/ma'ams.

Most of Canada doesn't know the French part, haha. It's not a direct translation of the English part either.
