Winnipeg Jets

As some of you may have heard that the Atlanta Thrashers are being moved to Winnipeg. There are many questions but only one is clear... there will be fans! They have sold 1300 tickets in the first 10 minutes of the sale. Here are some good questions about the new franchise.

Question: What will the team be called?
Answer : I think the team will be called the Winnipeg Jets but there is some people who want to call it the Manitoba Moose. I think they will say the teams's name before the NHL Entry Draft.

Q: Will players sign there?
A: I think the Winnipeg Jets/ Manitoba Moose will have some trouble signing there. I think Andrew Ladd will sign and maybe a bunch of this years free agents will band together like Miami's Big 3. Imagine Brad Richards, and Teemu Selanne will be a very good team.

Q: How much is the team worth?
A: The most valuable NHL franchise is the Toronto Maple Leafs with $505 million dollars and the Atlanta Thrashers are second last with $135 million. The big difference is Toronto is avery hockey crazy city well Winnipeg dosent have very many population.

What about you, what are your answers to the questions?
