Wednesday’s Dump & Chase: Stay Frosty

The Peg has many nicknames including “Chicago of the North”. This round should be a hoot, eh?

NHL: Winnipeg Jets at Nashville Predators Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

“Chicago of the North”. No really. Wikipedia says so.

It’s that lull between the end of round one and the beginning of round two where we have to fend off bad click-bait articles with a stick.

Winnipeg’s media has decided to dredge up articles from years ago about how Nashville tries to keep opposing fans teams from buying tickets...

Bless their hearts! The nickname really is fitting.

Nashville fans living in Nashville can’t even get tickets to see Nashville play in Nashville. We covered this last year. It’s not opposing fans, it’s Nashville’s fans, literally.

There isn’t a general public on-sale option because there are no tickets to sell, end of story. My article: Headline Consuming Jets’ Fans Angry Nashville Won’t Sell Them Playoff Tickets That Don’t Exist.

Lured out of retirement, Preds’ Mike Fisher chasing first Cup | ProHockeyTalk
I’m a sucker for a storybook sports ending. I shed a tear when Jonathan Toews handed Kimmo Timonen the Cup in 2015 (I know I know we hate Chicago, but it’s Kimmo!) If Roman Josi hands Mike Fisher the Cup, I will ugly cry for days!

Days!

Winnipeg has signs that say “Sorry, Eh!”

Please.
