According to www.jetsowner.com, a lockout is what Winnipeg fans should need in order to favor the NHL returning to the city. I'm not an expert in this but what are the chances of the lockout helping Winnipeg in their attempt to return? A fan from Winnipeg asked Bettman on CBC Newsworld about a month ago when he was talking about the lockout regarding the league and how they should return to Winnipeg. In the same breath Bettman said that the league has no intention of putting teams in Houston and Kansas City, and he said that when the time is right the league may consider a move to Winnipeg. My question is, how will the lockout impact this?
