I believe there are more Calgary Flames fans in Regina
than Winnipeg Jets fans. People in Sask. hate any Winnipeg teams.
Maybe I'm wrong. What do you think?

More Jets than Flames IMO, but not by a big margin. Sasktel blacks out most the Flames games, whereas they show all of the Jets games. Oilers get a little more love than either though. Leafs and Canadiens definitely on top.

They did a radio poll here last year and the Jets did place 4th behind the Oilers, Leafs, & Canadiens. The Oilers were easily #1, but that was fresh off their playoff run they year before, and before the Oilers started sliding out of the playoff race. They're not as popular now.

I didn?t go the the heritage here I won?t go there. Super glad I didn?t go when it was here.

It?s a waste of everything for those in attendance from what others have told me.

Saskatchewan people will love it though.

Jets will look good on TV at the toilet seat/bowl no doubt.

It's not the best view I've ever had at a hockey game that's for sure. We didn't score which kinda sucked, but it was a cool experience. The alumni game was neat and it was fun cheering on Temmu again. I wouldn't do it again in Regina, but I enjoyed it while it was here.

Love the idea of playing a game in Atlanta between the Jets and Flames, with them each wearing retro heritage Thrashers/Flames jerseys... should be able to get 6500 out for that game Wink

So, Winnipeg won the first reg season game at Mosaic, the first playoff game there, and now Winnipeg can win the first Hockey Game there...

Or... Jets attendance record is a game in Regina.

if it sells out, it would be 33,350.  Interesting trivia to say the least.

I think wins matter more than attendance figures. Wink

If only the temp. seating from the GC could've stayed up an extra year.

When ticket prices are announced, please do not bash the Riders or Regina.

Ticket prices are mandated directly from the NHL only.

FYI - Rider fans dislike Calgary far more then Winnipeg....kinda like our eastern neighbours!

Why would anyone bash the Riders or Regina - especially the Riders, who have absolutely nothing to do with this...? Huh

I absolutely plan to blame any issues I have on the Riders and Regina, as is of course standard operating procedure.
