True patriot love

Talk of the feds contemplating helping to underwrite a $400-million new hockey area in Quebec City that might possibly host the second coming of the Quebec Nordiques or, potentially, Olympic hockey at the 2022 Games, moves me to remind all concerned that there are other nostalgists about. Namely, those of us who would like to see the Jets return to Winnipeg. The more Canadian teams are added to the NHL mix, the greater the statistical probability at least one Canadian team will make it to the Stanley Cup final. Then watch our patriotism take off, our national pride soar!
