Why Not Winnipeg?

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

“Yes, under the right circumstances and should there be a need or an opportunity, we would love to return to Winnipeg,” wrote NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly in an email.

“Love,” he said.

Well, in the immortal words of Junior Soprano, I’d love to, er, be intimate with Angie Dickinson, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.

“We would have to take a closer look and do some due diligence to make a determination on the Winnipeg market before making a conclusion one way or the other,” Daly continued. “That’s not something we have the need or reason to do at this point.”

Maybe not. But the day seems to be drawing closer.
