I would imagine Hainsey and Slater wear A's during the season as well. Thanks for the info though.

Byfuglien and Stuart are wearing one in Winnipeg...

Same boys, different jerseys.....

I'm afraid there was not enough action on July 1. But hey, Wellwood awaits!

Here's still hoping there are some Thrash jerseys in Carolina and Nashy.
so tired of reading this kind of stuff.

This isn't meant as an excuse, but I wonder if a lot of the players left their hearts in Winnipeg.

So many of them have already admitted that they were hoping to play the home game, maybe the ones that had to go to Columbus are finding it difficult to give it their all.

Plus the roster talent is decidedly in the home game split squad's favor

I do not think this is true. This roster they brought to Columbus not nearly as talented, esspecially on the blueline and that was very obvious. Other than Hainsey, it was all guys that are nowhere near the NHL (Meech, Flood, Redmond, etc), whereas the WPG roster has 6 guys with legit chances at making the roster, thats a big difference and why they struggled to get the puck out of their own end.

Kane and Wheeler looked real good anyways.

Well....it's kinda true. The glaring holes in the team weren't addressed. I wouldn't say ignored, but there was nothing put towards the obvious.

Came to say congratulations on the show tonight... You guys deserve this, and the players deserve to be somewhere they're appreciated!

Great to see hockey back in Winnipeg where it belongs!!

Got chills seeing the team salute the crowd post game, almost nobody left in a 6-1 game!!


Good luck this season..... Great to have another Canadian team, finally!

What a way to come back into the league! Very fun game to watch, and Scheifel was the star of the game. He is going to make a great addition to the team, but I agree that he needs one more year in the minors for fine tuning.

This is still surreal.

They needed to add another Top 6 type player. They also needed to add a Top 4 defenseman. Not saying they should have gone after Richards, but a Krejci type would have been a perfect fit. You're going to see what we've been telling you round about January when the scoring dries up.

Plus, neither Bogosian or Oduya should be anywhere near your Top 4.
