Guess he figured out there is nothing to do in Winnipeg. A lot of players don't like Edmonton, and E-town is FAR more social of a city, and it is bigger than Winnipeg.
BTW I hate Jets fines, few of them outside of Winnipeg have any Winnipeg routs. They just cheered for them b/c it is the cool thing to do. REAL fans live and die with ONE team.
I've lived in both Winnipeg and Edmonton. Trust me, there's more of a nightclub, music and restaurant scene in the Peg BY FAR than in Edmonchuck. Players also do not see mosquito's from the rink, or the beach in Mexico which count against the Jets. Even the fishing is better! Snow arrives in northern Alberta 3 or 4 weeks earlier, leaves 3 or 5 weeks later cuz it so much farther north... Edmonton sulks!
Course I left both for Australia...
Would have no problem coming home to Canuckville either!
When are people going to start to realize that it takes a unique player to be successful with Ryan Kesler and that David Booth AND Evander Kane, guys that like to carry the puck to the net, are NOT at all those type of players.
Kesler had his initial breakout with Sundin and Demitra, two guys that loved to PASS the puck, making a pass first centerman much more successful.
Not saying we could land these guys but Marty St. Louis or PA Parentau are guys that could work well with Kesler.
Listen...IF and it's a BIG IF, Evander Kane is available, MG will do what he can to acquire him if at all possible. However, Booth would have to be involved in the deal for cap and style reasons and that is just fine with me.
This just up here a few lines...! Earth to Kess, score. Kess to God's, pass to me please!
But Kane might look absolutely smashing with the Twins playing off wing?
Kevin Bacon and Rob Lowe are actors.
Rob Lowe called Winnipeg a hellhole.
Rob Lowe and Hilary Duff were among celebrities seen in LA for the Stanley Cup.
Hillary Duff is married to Mike Comrie.
Mike Comrie refused to sign as a RFA in EDM.
Yup. It checks out.
Comrie has some Bricks and mortar connections to Edmonton. He had no lack of money, but being a home town boy he was washed by the local fans worse than Lou is here. He was also not one of Lowe (Kevin as in GM, not any other connection for wandering minds) or MacT's good Ol' boys. He wanted a fresh start, course that did not work out either. How does little girl lover Rob Lowe come into the conversation?
HILARY DUFF IS MARRIED TO MIKE COMRIE!! learn something new everyday
Some great stuff made the internet when he popped (the question) on his balcony in Edmonton!
