ARE THE JETS MINNESOTA'S BEST HOPE FOR HOCKEY?
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).
