Jet Lag - Death of the Winnipeg Jets, 10 years later
Hard to believe it's been 10 years since the Jets died. The Winnipeg Sun is running a series of specials this week about the departure of the team and the effect it has had on the city. So far it's been a very interesting read.
I miss the JETS as well they were our last AHL affiliate. The Moncton Hawks ceased in 1994. Alpo will always be my favourite first name for a coach. GM Smith loved the Europeans when it wasn't fashionable.
I thought hockey would end here forever and then came the Q in 1995 and life went on. Still have my Hawks Blue away sweater and my White home sweater in Jets colours. Long live the Red White and Blue of the Jets/Hawks
