Two Trips A Year To The Peg

While Celebrations in Winnipeg get underway, it's worth noting that hockey fans from the Peach State weren't the only one's who lost with today's announcement that True North Sports and Entertainment has acquired the Atlanta Thrashers...

With two away games next season diverted from Atlanta to Manitoba, the Islanders stand to lose:

_

1. About 80 degrees Fahrenheit (I figure at least 40 degrees per trip)

2. Two hours of sleep (One following each game that starts at 7 Mountain Time)

3. Two free shoeshines at my favorite hotel

_

One final note on the deal, courtesy of Wikipedia:

"According to Environment Canada, Winnipeg is the coldest city in the world with a population of over 600,000."
