There are a lot of Thrasher fans who migrated to the Preds understandably.

It's quite understandable to not "root" for the city that now has your former team.

But there are quite a few people over there that hate the city, hate the fans, hate the organization, etc. I think it stems from anonymous internet posters identifying themselves as Winnipegers and acting like D-Bags in Atlanta forums last year. It's the same with Phoenix. A few internet tough guys act like morons, and then they paint the entire city with the same brush.

a lot of former Thrasher fans became Preds fans. In all honesty i can understand why they would be upset and bitter because i shared those same feelings towards the Coyotes for so many years. People like Duke49 and a few others that post here are the exception that stick with the team after relocation.

Watch out for Radulov. I'm not sure how familiar some of you guys are with him, since he left the NHL before you reacquired the Jets, but he is an elite offensive player. The biggest difference between your last game against the Preds, and today's game is his presence on the ice.

I'll see what I can do, I did enjoy doing it.

Fair enough. But you would think people would be intelligent enough to discriminate between being mad at a few morons on the internet vs. painting an entire fanbase and city with a blood-soaked brush based on said morons, who may or may not have been from Winnipeg.

...adding Hal Gill and having both Kostitsyn brothers isn't hurting the Preds any either!

This thread and the Nashville ones are kind of weird for me. I'm a "why can't everyone (who isn't on the ice) get along" kind of guy.

Apparently Pav's is getting the start. Never been a fan of the starting the same goaltender in B2B's idea.

Then again he really only played about 30 - 40 minutes last night. Only 2 shots in the 3rd and none in OT.

Before the Atlanta situation, Nashville had a tough time with lots of young, make-it-7-type trolls. Some people are just genetically inclined to feel bitter when others are cheering while they are about to lose something dear to them. Other people have a different brain chemistry. Thankfully older Winnipeg fans are understanding.

In and out of mountains, my connection is crap!

with a bit of luck this could turn into a 4 team race for the last 2 spots.

Ottawa has Pittsburgh tonight... by monday night we could only be 2 points behind Ottawa with a game in hand.

Ottawa has Philly up after us on the road.

Is it official? I made a guess in the GDT line-ups.

I think I saw him crocheting down in the Jets zone in the 3rd last night. Making beautiful Czech doilies or something.

the Jets better be ready for a Preds team playing with something to prove. In particular, Radulov will likely be a thorn. Can't say last night's win wasn't the biggest win of the season, even if we win tonight, then again, we neeeeed a win tonight seeing as Buffalo is hosting Minnesota tonight...and Washington is hosting them tomorrow. That means we neeeeed this one...ugh...so many must wins!!

IMO, most people in Nashville think Winnipeg = Canada = Balsillie.

Since they hate Balsillie, they hate all Canadian teams and cities, including Winnipeg.

I have friends and business associates in Nashville; it is a great, incredible city, and one largely populated by friendly folks. If you can't have fun in Nashville then there is something wrong with you! Any perceived hatred is most likely limited to a very few hockey fans, and is driven mainly by long-held hard feelings against Balsillie.

This is much ado about nothing.

Oops. I had a GDT done, but fell asleep last night before posting it. It's all good, I've got my template for the future now!

I'll just stick with my game at the end of the season. Sorry for missing it!

It was from last year.

I showed it to him and he just shook his head and called me a homo.

I was like "Bro that's just bro love".

Sorry! People we're gettin' antsy. As KW says, there's the Rangers game, and one other that are open. You want to grab one of those?
