Game 1 -
The Sens looked good until the 3rd Period. So much for that "faster, smoother" style of hockey, the "rough and tumble" NHL will never go anywhere based on the sucess of the Ducks this year... Still could be an interesting series if the Sens can stay healthy.Preds, sold and moving?
On the "bad side", sorry Jamie. I sure hope for your sake that the moving talk is a lot of hot air.
On the "good side", I know it's just the Commish telling folks what they want to hear, but I guess there is always hope Brent. From ESPN
:Winnipeg is seen as the most logical choice to rejoin the NHL because it has a new arena and more community support for a return to the NHL.
"When we had the chance to go back to Minnesota, we did. Because it made sense, the right ownership, the right building situation," Bettman said. "The market was strong and vibrant. We haven't studied Quebec City or Winnipeg or anywhere else in Canada, but the notion that if it could work to put a franchise back in a place where one was lost, feels good -- provided we don't wind up in a situation where we've created a prescription for another failing franchise.
I know, I know, lots of hurdles and what not, so don't get those hopes up too high.
I will say this though - if and when the NHL returns to Winnipeg, you buy the tickets and I'll gladly drive up for a Wild V. Winnipeg game.
