Honestly in two separate stints of living in the Twin Cities I have never heard anyone refer to either Minneapolis or Minnesota as "Minni."

Nope. The new divisions / 4 conference thing got nixed by the NHLPA (if I remember correctly) so we're stuck in the SE division for at least one more year.

I did want to see another New Years game with Toronto this year, but I'll take the one with TB instead.

I was hoping the games would start earlier. I am planning on going to all the games, and am very happy I booked New Year's off already! The 9pm start is going to end up past my bed time, lol.

I thought we would have more WILD vs. JETS games this year from the awesome rivalry last year.
To be honest, I don't really see a Wild vs. Jets rivalry developing. There never seemed to be much animosity that developed between Jets v1.0 and the North Stars. It might happen when we inevitably become divisional foes, but even then it will probably take a good playoff series or two to develop any kind of animosity.

I'm going to fly in for a couple of games!

I don't like all the afternoon games.

I absolutely see one already developing.

I don't think using the old franchises as an example work. Usually these rivalries are built on some rough play.

Both teams like to check and be defensive and I could see in our last games the teams REALLY looked like they didn't like each other. Bogosian messing up MPB's face helped with that methinks.

Not to mention both coaches absolutely have a rivalry with each other dating back to their AHL days.

Me too. The Jets seemed to have the most fun playing the Flyers, but just going on on-ice vibe the team they absolutely seemed to dislike the most were the Wild, and I have no idea why.

I remember after the game in Minnesota they were raving about the energy in the building with the Jets / Wild fan clash. Maybe they picked it up off that? I have no idea.

for the people who have half season packages, does the group that got the home opener/odd # games last year (I think "A") get the home opener again? Or does it switch each year?

That really sucks for you guys. Not many places compare to Nashville for taking in a game. Glad that Raleigh is only a couple more hours away though.

Everyone calls it Minne here. I think it refers to Minneapolis, as most up here don't really identify with the distinction between St. Paul and Minneapolis. It's all just Minne

I know that some on your board don't like it but it is by no means meant in any derogatory fashion. People love Minneapolis/ St. Paul up here. It's just a nick like Philly, Chitown, Cali etc.

Minnesotan's are great people, as are those from St Paul / Minneapolis (or at least the ones I've met and hung around with). Just don't say Minny anywhere near them - it's like an Incredible Hulk thing for some reason. Strange.

That Jets-Canucks game looks interesting with the Moose grads coming to play here.

Wild/Jets Rivalry

With tickets being ridiculously hard to come by in Winnipeg for the next four years (at least), a Minnesota/Winnipeg rivalry is definitely on the horizon, and it's unfortunate there's no regular season game in Minnesota.

With an appetite for all things Jets being so insatiable around here, thousands of Winnipegers seem prepared to drive the seven hours to see our Boys in action (and take road trips elsewhere too!) Minneapolis is simply the closest geographic rival.

Dec 26th The Jets are in Edmonton. Hmmm, my wife is due that week, but it'll be a planned c-section, so I'll just have to tell the doc to schedule it after the 26th. lol. If I can even get tickets.

Unfortunately, no:

- Anaheim home game - I didn't get to see Teemu last year
- Minnesota road game - Would have been fun fill up their arena with our fans again

But both of those games happened last year, so I wasn't expecting them this year.

I'm also not crazy about the 7pm starts - it leaves less time to grab a decent dinner downtown (i.e. not only Jetsdogs).

That said, you can put me in the category of totally psyched for next season!

As someone who had a birthday close to christmas (dec 27th) I'll say that having a birth near Christmas sucked as a kid. So as someone that hated having a bday close to Chirstmas, my advice would be the have the csection as far away from X-mas as possible.

My brother is going to be PISSED. Smash things pissed. He is a huge Jets fan having grown up in Winnipeg mostly, but unlike me he stayed in Edmonton after high school. There was no game in Edmonton last year, he was not happy. I told him for sure Winnipeg would be in Edmonton this year. And they are. On December 26th. While he will be in Winnipeg for Xmas. I don't want to be the one to tell him...

Since I start work at 5am I am happy with the change to 7pm start times. There were a handful of games when i worked a 12-13 hr day and was just too tired to go to the game knowing i had to be up at 4am the next day. On the flip side, I don't really like the increase in afternoon games as I am usually working until 2 - 3 pm on the weekends.
