I'm all for it. My only concern is would these extra nights take away from potential concert venues coming to the city? The MTSC is really the only place year-round where big names can come and perform. I just wouldn't want to see the city suffer by losing out on concerts. As long as that isn't compromised, it's all good.
Shouldn't be a concern. Edmonton only has one arena right now and they have the Oilers, Oil Kings, and the Lacrosse team playing there and they still manage to get more concerts than Winnipeg. Even if the MTS Centre does host a WHL team, it should still draw all the major concert acts it did before.
Fair amount of free parking to be found around MTSC.
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, aren't paid parking spots usually 2-3x more for Jets games? Considering there won't be nearly as many people attending WHL games, they would probably just charge the regular rates.
or families could park a mildly inconvenient distance, and walk the horrifieingly long 3-5 blocks to the hockey game.
Peopls complaints about parking is my biggest issue.
