Leafs host Canadiens on first night of N

Memories of how they were treated by hockey fans in Winnipeg had some former Jets feeling satisfaction at reports the NHL's return to the Manitoba capital is imminent."I'm happy for Manitobans and the city," former Jets captain Dale Hawerchuk said Friday from Toronto. "Let's hope everybody appreciates that it's back, takes care of it, supports it and everybody gets positive and on the right page with it."That Jared Norris Jersey 's the great things about Manitobans. You deal with winter, you deal with floods, you deal with mosquitoes, but they're the most positive people in the world and let's hope they're that way with a new NHL team."Former Jets have heard rumour and speculation for years about the NHL Kony Ealy Jersey returning to the city where they once played. The NHL left Winnipeg 15 years ago to become the Phoenix Coyotes.Those reports have foundation now as True North Sports&Entertainment and the owner of the Atlanta Thrashers are in negotiations for the sale and transfer of that team Tre Boston Jersey to Winnipeg."I was actually part of the move with the Jets to Phoenix and I felt very sorry for Winnipeg," defenceman Dave Manson said from Prince Albert, Sask. "I was fortunate to play in a few Canadian cities and it was tough being a part of that, to watch a team move from Canada to the States."I couldn't be happier for the City of Winnipeg."Hawerchuk is a Hockey Hall of Famer who now coaches the OHL's Barrie Colts.He, Manson and former Jets defenceman Dean Kennedy all point Dan France Jersey to a number of factors Winnipeg didn't have in 1996 that now seem to be working in its favour: an ownership group that wants a team in the city; a new arena; a salary cap; and a strong Canadian dollar."I think the biggest thing is a strong ownership group," said Kennedy. "The ownership in Winnipeg when I played was not interested in keeping that team there.
