    Congrats Winnipeg! I am from Cleveland, Ohio and love all the Canadian cities in the NHL, where hockey is a religion. I want the Nordiques back in Quebec as well. Some old Jets off the top of my head: Teemu (of course), Dale Hawerchuk, Doug Smail, Morris Lukowich, Bob Essensa, Jim Kyte (always got his ass beat), Dave Ellett, Doug Soetart, Thomas Steen, Brent Ashton...to name a few. What memories...and new ones soon to come. Can we expect to see the infamous "Whiteouts"?? We have to! - it's tradition.. :handclap:
    Again, congrats to Winnipeg.

    Those guys were playing before my time, but I vaguely remember them as a little kid and know they were legendary Jets. Some nice names mentioned. I remember Laurie Boschman.
