I'm from Up North too, and was able to attend far more games (WHA and NHL) old Winnipeg Arena, always thrilling at their speedy wingers (once sat on an end rail seat and was able to get a high-five from the Golden Jet himself, Bobby Hull, back to receive an honour from the club) than I'd at the old Met Center where the North Stars long shined.

Icechipper - that "Hot Line" that the WHA version of the Winnipeg Jets had (Bobby Hull, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson) is STILL to this day, the most electrifying line I have seen live...albeit at the St. Paul Civic Center (with the glass boards) not in the Peg.

Those were the days alright. Those poor goalies in their leather gear facing Hull's slapshot.

As much as I loved the WHA, it was a major deal for Winnipeg to join the NHL.

The only bad thing for the Jets then was that there were so many fans of the "original" six teams.

You couldn't tell who was the home team when Montreal or Toronto came to town. Montreal especially

had hard core fans with the large French-Canadian population in and around Winnipeg.

Great Story on former Fighting Saint Goldie Goldthorpe here.  He didn't get the part in the movie "Slapshot" because he broke a bottle over Paul Newman's brother's noggin 😂

Yup - good stuff.  I remember that - and I also remember thinking that it was a good thing the game was outdoors that day in Buffalo - because between he and the Milbury Dough-Boy, - those two egos wouldn't fit in an NHL arena

Excellent video!  Thanks KC!

 

And for the article Antti!

 

No problem.  It was one maybe 2-3 Winter Classic games I've watched, partly because it was first one.  Glad you enjoyed it!

Hi,

former member, reformed, medallion clenched in my sweaty palm. Losing.... sky falling... Mikko old, slow...still...  Coyle, bust... Stall, trade bait... Nino, nowhere... Parise...who? But at least the Suter interviews are gripping. What did they expect putting Mickey Rooney on the bench. FIRE HIM!

 

Just kidding, I don't care, but man, anybody been watching WJC? love it.

I thought I saw a line of Zhamnov-Selanne-Tkachuk at the old Winnipg barn that was pretty good.

Tkachuk... man I hope his wife chose the names of his kids.

Haven't seen the Ott kid play in the NHL but the Calgary kid didn't fall far from the old man tree.  He's already as obnoxious and abrasive as old man Upchuck!  😄

Some pretty bad snowstorms here in Southern MN. All roads were closed from Saturday night into this morning. Couldn't get anywhere and some people were stupid to drive when the roads were closed.

Wait...what?  I was a n STH'er for BOTH iterations of the Fighting Saints (one corner, row 1 knees in full view of deflected slappers coming right at the glass boards)  and one who is steeped in the history of the rebel league...for the record

 

Owner of 7 WHA sweaters

Sure - I care not. But to say you are THE "resident WHA nostalgia fan" is pretty cheeky :)

 

And I will put my physical fitness up against anyone in here :)

Oh I'm sure you will. I'm a fat, lazy bastard and ain't afraid to admit it, so I'll pass. 😂

      Hello, I'm yet another (going on) former member of the soon to be defunct MN Wild forums making a move. Formerly #3 on the tree of post count at 25,424 but #1 with likes at 1,792 and counting    I hate rottenrefs! Which is why I originally joined the boards over there. Oh the irony.

      YAY!  A new home!   Another migrant here and I'm glad this new home is so friendly!  I was approaching 11k posts and mainly stick to GDTs for my posting.   I just don't like predicting and usually read and lurk until a comment is needed.   This place looks pretty sweet and great to see so many friendly faces!
