Most of the fans of the new, yet to be named Winnipeg hockey team remember what it was like to lose their beloved franchise.
With a second chance, the fans will prove that they are worthy of a team.
Commissioner Gary Bettman has called for 13,000 season tickets to be sold before June 21st, when the Board of Governors meet to make the move official.
People would have to be crazy to think that the citizens of Manitoba will not be lining up to secure their season tickets. I was listening to Winnipeg radio today and people were crying because of their happiness.
Hockey means everything to these people, and having felt the loss of a team, they will be sure it never happens again.
