He's not the first. Look at Bullwinkle. That has to be Mick.E.Moose's mentor.

btw Mick just added me on facebook. We're friends officially!

Funniest thing ever, his big debut was walking out on one corner of the ice to Bad to the Bone, while Mick E Moose was in the other. It was meant to play out as a soap opera over the course of the season but after they had a little scuffle during an intermission a few games in, a whole bunch of little kids were crying so they scraped Mick E Vil.
Holy ****.

People are giving the Moose era FAR too much credit for where we are today.

On the contrary, they were simply a means to an end. Chipman even admitted that they were just trying to "fill a void".

If the Jets were not suffering in 1995, Chipman would not have gotten involved in the hockey business. Thank the Jets for leaving in the first place to get where we are today.

People also misunderstand Moose success with that of TNSE/MTS Centre's success.

It was the MTS Centre that provided TNSE the success they needed to move forward. The Moose were simply a tenant - but it was the profit generated by other events (concerts, etc) that gave TNSE its greatest accomplishments.

And you're not giving them enough credit. Without the Moose, there would be no reason to build a new arena, and nobody with the desire to do so. The moose certainly made money, along with the money from other events, and most importantly gave Chipman an IN with the NHL through his AHL contacts.

And without the Moose there would be no MTS Centre

Sure, they were a tenant -- but you can't say with a straight face that we needed a new arena for an AHL team.

It was obviously so much more to the MTS Centre. That is when Chipman and Co. launched TRUE NORTH SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT.

It was a complete package thing -- not just the Moose.

You can't measure the success of the MTS Centre by the curtained-off upper deck attendance/revenue of an AHL team. Come on now.

No we didnt need it JUST for an AHL team.
We just needed a new arena.

But you cant be serious if you think a company and all levels of government would fork over millions to build a new arena with no tenant.

I never said that. Quit putting words in my mouth.

I was simply stating that the Moose get way too much credit for where we are today. They were just a "means to an end" -- and the end goal in mind was (at least by 2004): NHL.

"Filling a void" as Chipman put it.

The MTS Centre was built not entirely on the premise that the Moose needed a new arena -- they did not. But Winnipeg, the city, did. We needed a brand new ENTERTAINMENT venue that also could supply professional hockey.

The Moose were irrelevant to most of Winnipeg, maybe even most Winnipeg hockey fans. I watch over 100 hockey games a year; I watched 3 Moose games which I believe is probably typical.
