ARE THE JETS MINNESOTA'S BEST HOPE FOR HOCKEY?
Published March 15, 1995
The uncertain future of the Winnipeg Jets is the best opportunity the Twin Cities have in landing an NHL team, according to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. With expansion franchises "expected to go" to Phoenix, Houston, Atlanta and Denver, Hartman writes that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman "is looking favorably on Minnesota landing another hockey team." Hartman said there are buyers ready to put up money to bring hockey back to the area (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 3/15).
