Seven years after losing the Jets to Phoenix, it appears the city of Winnipeg wants the National Hockey League back.

The Winnipeg Sun reported Thursday that the city's deputy mayor Coun. Dan Vandal penned a letter to Penguins owner Mario Lemieux on Dec. 9 to consider moving his team to Manitoba.

In his message sent to Lemieux, Vandal pointed out that the league is facing "difficult decisions" with an imminent labour shutdown, and said Winnipeg was ready to welcome the struggling club if it can't make things work in Pittsburgh.

"We have to be cognizant of the changing issues in the NHL, and position ourselves to capitalize on those changes," Vandal told The Sun in explaining his inquiry to Lemieux, which is dated Dec. 9.

"The quality of the fan here is second-to-none -- so consider us."

Neither Lemieux nor anyone from the team has responded to the letter, and Penguins general manager Craig Patrick told reporters earlier this week that a rumour saying Lemieux would sell without a new arena deal by the time a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is reached is false.

Vandal's letter - not considered to be an official city query - is the first public declaration of another city wanting to house the Penguins.

Many expect the league to suffer a shutdown due to a strike or lockout when the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and its players expires next September, and that some teams may not survive a potential work stoppage.




I think it would be good for Canadian hockey if the Penguins moved to Winnipeg. But with all the American markets that could take in an NHL franchise it seems like nothing more than a pipe dream. Nonetheless, I would like to see a team be moved back into Canada.

Thoughts?

Even though it would suck majorly to see the Pens go if it happens(I live 2 hours from Pitt and have been to countless games), Winnipeg would be a worthy city to get hockey again. I'd also like to see Quebec get a team back too.

It would be good for the Pens to move there. They would probably actually have people at their games. Even when the Jets were there they could draw a good amount of people. And plus its hockey country. People will come even if the team sucks. But on the other hand I don't want to see it happen. It will just be another shitty Canadian team I have to listen about for 20mins everyday on tsn...

Isn't team canada ranked #1 in the world juniors?

Why is it that the NFL feels it must take far more talented canadian talent from the winnipeg blue bombers and other Canadian Football teams...

If canadian teams suck its only because America buys away all the good talent.

All i'm going to say is in a question.

Do you really think Mario would let the pens be sold to and moved to winni?

The Leafs will fall soon.

Team Canada and Canadian NHL teams are totally different. I enjoy watching team Canada because they actually have good players. But i'll admit, the Canucks are a very good team, and have alot of players I do like.

And there's only a few players that came from the CFL that made it big in the NFL. So don't go on saying that there stealing players....

I don't know about that. There was rumors before saying that he might want to sell the team because he can't get a new areana deal. He knows it himself that this franchise is going no where. With the little money the team has they won't be able to do anything. Once Mario retires they will officially be an AHL team...

How many times will I have to say this. The Leafs will fall. Sure they will still finish 3rd, but hey, look at their divison. Face the facts. They won't win the cup. There going to have to play either Philly or Jersey in the playoffs who they can't beat. If the Leafs are in the Cup final in June, sure you can come talk to me about them. But until then there nothing.
