[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Winter Classic : Disagree with this. At the moment the Jets are the most popular item up here because of their return. Choosing the Jets in a Heritage game would be a no brainer.

They are the hot summer topic. When hockey starts, and the Jets stink, all of the fans will return to their regularly scheduled obsessions. They are as follows:
Habs fans: Oh my God, this is a Cup team.
Leafs fans: Oh my God, this is a Cup team.
Sens fans: Oh my God, what happened to our Cup dream?
Flames fans: We love Iggy, he is so mean.
Oilers fans: They'll be great soon, right now they're just teens.
Come January, the interesting story of the Jets will be an interesting story of what they'll do with their lottery pick. The people in the other hockey areas will be interested in their own teams.
Example: Oilers vs Flames and Jets vs. anyone Calgary and Edmonton are not watching the Jets game.
Another example: Maple Leafs vs. anyone and Jets vs. anyone. Toronto is not tuning into the Jets.
I understand that right now they're hot, hot, hot. Soon, the interest will be as localized as it is in Edmonton.
Bad choice for the big game.
