Somewhat of a wishful dream

According to the NHL, and now most of the Sporting Press that covers the glorious game, Hockey, it seems this man

will announce tomorrow that he will officially accept the post as the head coach of the semi-competitive Phoenix Coyotes

in hopes that his presence and sense of the game will rub off on his players, injecting life into this otherwise lifeless franchise.

Wayne, buddy, can I talk to you for a minute? Remember, my grandparents lived near your parents in Brantford. Anyhow, I have the solution to the woes of the Coyotes. See, this is the second half of the Bettman era, where the mistakes of the past are corrected. First, we have a salary cap. Now, lets look at things. Ultimately, you cannot ignore the importance of the fans. And frankly, in Phoenix, Arizona, you have five. All Canadian immigrants. It seems rather obvious what you need to do.

Move the franchise back to Winnipeg. You are, however, the managing partner. You are also the President of the Canadian Olympic team. Doesn't it make sense to do what's right for hockey in Canada? I know, I know, theres a much lower population in Winnipeg, but theres a hell of a lot more fans in the Coyotes Jets original home in Winnipeg, attendance was never an issue, nor was fan support, just the strength of the dollar.

Revive the franchise. Move back to Winnipeg. Maybe then Colorado, in the Pepsi Centre

will move back to Quebec

with all the Pepsis.
