The Winnipeg Jets have been a consistently good team since it's return in 2011, when the Atlanta Thrashers franchise got moved to Winnipeg.

Last night with a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild, they officially claimed their spot in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and could be a legitimate threat for the Stanley Cup.
Yesterday though, the team made an announcement to season ticket holders that is raising some concerns about their future in the city of Winnipeg.
While you hear from many fans that the "white out" in the Winnipeg arena is a must see, that doesn't always translate to revenue. The rink the Jets play in is the second smallest in the National Hockey League, which according to Wikipedia, has a capacity for 15,321 people. To put this into perspective, the biggest rink, being the Montreal Canadiens Bell center, holds 21,105 people. 6000 extra people, averaging $100 a ticket, thats a lot of extra revenue.
This was the statement released by the city:
Winnipeg. The Jets. One Community. One Family.

Since our earliest days, our vision has never wavered - to be a consistent source of pride for our community. Equally important is our responsibility as the steward of professional hockey in Winnipeg.

We endeavour every day to create long-lasting memories for our fans, and connect our generations past, present and future.

Our commitment to keeping the Jets in Winnipeg, forever, has never been stronger. But it takes all of us. Together.

Join us.
