Oh, this is BS.  It’s just a bunch of arrogant Canadian fans trying to shve their zenophobic superiority complexes down everyone’s throats!!!

xenophobic starts with x.

I’m looking forward to the Manitoba Moose as an NHL franchise.

Isn’t this something like the third different Tuesday that the sale of the Thrashers to Winnipeg was expected to be announced.

Ain’t that the truth!

One can hope that the “Z” Phobes will STFU after this announcment in Winnipeg. But saddly that is unlikely to happen untill we have teams in Yellowknife, Whitehorse and Red Deer!
