For all the years I lived in Winnipeg, and since then, I was always very cynical about the NHL returning to Winnipeg. Even after last week’s announcement that TNS&E had purchased the Thrashers.
But the challenge of selling 13,000 season tickets was CRUSHED – more than half were sold through presale and the rest sold within 17 minutes of the general sale opening.
CONGRATULATIONS Winnipeg – thank you for proving me wrong!!
Suck it Bettman.
