Winnipeg: Chicago of the North:
So, the prospects will already be quite used to things, should they move to Chicago. In a way, Chicago is like a much-larger (and much more awesome, if you like big cities) version of Winnipeg (although my Chi-town friends will probably be mad at me for saying this). There are a lot of families from European backgrounds who have relatives in both cites (especially the Poles, Ukrainians, and Italians) and the Winnipeg-Chicago connection goes back pretty far.
Totally non-hockey post but I just thought it was kinda interesting to go from "Chicago of the North" to the real Chicago.
