Seems like no one is blogging for Winnipeg so figured it is about time. Few things heading into the opener.
1) Schiefle: Will he make the team? The kid has performed greater than anyone could have predicted. I was sure they would send him back to Barrie for one more season and play for Canada at the World Juniors but I am not sure anymore. He has played above and beyond every game and could easily fit in with the roster. With a hole at center, he would fit perfectly. The Jets have until Tuesday to sign him to an ELC or send him back. Should be interesting to see what happens.
2) Excitement: Winnipeg is absolutely humming with hockey back. The pre season games have the feel of playoff hockey, the crowd is absolutely energetic the entire game. It is going to be interesting to see how that plays out for home games here.
Being one of the lucky people who has tickets to the home opener this week can't end soon enough. With the NHL party kicking off on Thursday in Winnipeg it is going to be a week to remember.
