The Day The Jets Died

may 18th, 1995.
this was the day.
for people here who may be interested in knowing how this city felt during this time. the rallys, the last minute deals, all the backroom sideline dealings are in this two part special that was printed in the Winnipeg Free Press just a little while ago.
its a great read, so please do.

A sad day it was and here is an old CBC video, you can clearly tell that Bettman wanted to move these teams to the states so that he can use them towards his idea of expanding which has not worked.

The Real Record Setting

The NHL announced this week that it set league records for attendance in 2006-07. The words "set records" brings a few other things to mind. Like record setting give-aways. For instance, the Montreal Canadiens matched their league record season attendance of 872,193. Wonderful. Too bad the NHL had already given away more tickets by January 31st, only a little more than half way through the 2006-07 campaign. 881,135 freebies to be exact. That's on pace for 1.4 million complimentary tickets given to "fans" to come out to NHL buildings. Wow, no wonder their smashing attendance records!
