Some Phoenix Players Prefer Quebec City Over Winnipeg

from Sun Media,

While talk of possibly moving the Phoenix Coyotes to Winnipeg is getting most hockey fans excited, especially those in Winnipeg, Coyotes forward Eric Belanger is among the minority that are not thrilled with the idea….

He knows that the Coyotes’ days in the dessert are likely numbered, but Belanger, who rarely minces words, doesn’t see Winnipeg as a dream destination.

“The guys have been talking about it a bit more every day, and the one sure thing is that we want to play in Phoenix and not in Winnipeg,” said Belanger. “Personally, and I won’t name any names, but I’ve chatted with guys that have played (in Winnipeg) and don’t want to go back. There are reasons why hockey wasn’t working in Winnipeg at the end, I don’t see how that would have changed.”

Dumb article anyways since the players have no say anywhere.

However, it’s really hard to take any article seriously when it refers to Phoenix as a team in the “dessert”.  Unless Arizona is located inside a giant pie, and I missed it…

Holy hell, Belanger just opened up a H-U-G-E can of worms with his comments.

I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic, thanks to the interweb, but if you are indeed serious, I think you’re wrong. Everyone has know everything Belanger said, it’s just now someone actually potentially affected by the situation is saying it.
