Wpg & StJ's are not the closest cities to each other
Yep. Maybr its semantics but two games acroas town is a lot different then 12 games halfway across the country

Could they move 2 games its probable but still difficult.St John's generially goes on big road tripps then a 6 game home stand so moving 2 to western Canada would be a hastile.Kingjet brings up teams with short distances and small fan bases.Add in he's naming many teams we will never play.

for sure they'll play a handful of home games in winnipeg in the event of a lockout.

and to the original question, the icecaps are a cash cow for danny williams, not for tnse.

How do you figure? There's a contract in place to play in St Johns.

An exhibition game? I could see that happening, but it appears that there's nothing scheduled at the moment.

okay, this something people don't seem to realise.

Leased to Danny Williams: it's pretty "hands off" on a business side from TNSE as far as non-hockey personnel decisions are handled.

current-vs-historic context: 1 or 2 games played in the parent arena of AHL franchises that are located quite close to eachother is not the same as "a handful"(i'm assuming 3-4 +?) games played halfway across the continent.

Location, location, location: Those teams that have played in the parent arena were still playing within the geographic confines of their conference. Ice Caps do not play any teams from the northwest, thus playing out of winnipeg would be increased travel expenses (which is apprently the ultimate boogy-man in the AHL) for very little gain for anyone.

Gain: They don't gain anything by playing here. It won't sell out, they'd get at max 10k people, and actually run the risk of selling less then the 6k+ they have in st johns (unlikely, i know, but still a risk). So why? Why would you do it? because a select few jets fans want them too?

There's a lot more logistics included in doing something like this then folks seem to think, not to mention taking product (which is obviously in lower supply then demand as per season ticket sales) away from STJ to fulfill a completely unknown demand.

Frank hates Danny Williams and dont go to any games,nor do his taxes come out of the Icecaps being here,yet the city makes millions off the Icecaps

If Danny Williams wants to throw his money at the AHL Frank and it costs you ZERO then why complain.I tend to not complain about stuff that dont cost me,unfortunitly unlike you my taxes are wasted on the arts here in the City,but i dont go and cry on their boards

The ice caps fans love trashing Manitoba and the jets now....saying winnipeg and manitoba cant afford to pay the salaries of millioaire hockey players. goof thinks the government runs the jets.
