Probably Calgary since there are so many ex-Winnipeggers in the city.

As a Wild fan, I hope it's us.

I had some great conversations with hockey fans from Winnipeg at Wild games before you guys got your team back. We all agreed that it would be a great rivalry. Both cities are full of hockey fans who had their beloved team stolen from them.

In fact, if one of our games up there end up on a weekend this year, a bunch of us are hoping to road trip it up north.

Rivalries occur when each team has a dislike for the other team. The fans only have to dislike the other players, not the other fans or city.
Then it's not it's not real rivalry. See Riders-Bombers. Both sides hate each others province/city's. THAT is a rivalry.

Me personally, it'll be against Calgary and Vencouver. Vancouver because of the early 90's with the Jets 1.0. Calgary, well, I just have my personal reasons.

I hope to visit Minnesota the same time the Jets are there. Maybe I'll be sitting next to dome D-bag Wild fans and it'll make me hate them.

You can get tickets if you dont mind spending a little. Kijiji/Ebay....(Yes I know its not the official Jets Exchange and should not be endorsed).... at any rate there are always tickets available. If you can get Leaf tickets...you can definitely get Wild tickets..

I am truely looking forward to seeing MINNY fans Up here...

That's one way to get them to hate us. I'll be down there in a couple of weeks, so I'll leave some Jets stickers on some of their monuments.

The "MINNY-WINNY" rivalry? Sounds serious.

Actually guys, it's not Minne. The team is the Minnesota Wild. They play out of St. Paul. Minne is short for Minneapolis. It's like calling a New Zealander an Aussie. Pisses them off to no end.

I highly recommend doing it

It's really hard to tell who we will be the biggest rivals with. I'd bet Chicago considering who their captain is and the fact they are Cup champs. Tons of Chitown fans at the MTS Centre should get us suitably riled up

I so hated Chicago back in the Jets 1.0 era. Hated all their players (Chelios first and foremost), hated that they offer-sheeted Tkachuk in 1995...a front loaded 5-year, $17.2 million contract that paid him $6 million in the first year (if ever there was a team vulnerable to a front loaded offer sheet, though, the 1995-96 Jets were it).

I don't really dislike any team. I'm sure I won't be saying that after a few years in our new division though.

The Southeast Division was too far away and we haven't played a team in the west since March of 2012.

Not sure why, but I have feeling it will be Nashville.

I think we stand a great chance at forming rivalries with a few teams, most notably Minnesota, Chicago and possibly St. Louis. All it takes is a playoff round or two and something pretty interesting could spark. I like our division.

I expect to have the same feeling about Minnesota as I do about Rider fans. On the surface I condemn them to everlasting damnation, but secretly I root for them when the Bombers have crashed and burned yet again.

Go back and read their forum during the time the Jets were returning to Wpg. and later when the first announcement was made that we would be in the same division. The comments were almost universally welcoming and positive. Compare and contrast with the Leafs forum.

I look forward to despising the Wild (sort of)

Minnesota fans have also gone through the process of losing their team and getting a new one. They were in a position to understand how we felt.

Crazy actually

Obviously the wild will be due to proximity to us

But... pretty crazy stuff here

Chicago has winnipeg connections in Toews,Keith and Sharp

Nashville has winnipeg/Manitoba connections with Barry Trotz and Colin Wilson

St louis has Reaves and Steen

Dallas has Garbut

Colorado and Minnesota are the only 2 teams without any significant wpg/mb connections. However due to location location location, Minnesota will be our biggest rivalry.
