The Fort William Gardens has held up pretty well, but it's time to move forward.

Apparently the Winnipeg Jets are looking at moving their AHL team to Thunder Bay if a new arena is built. Personally, I'm not sure if there is enough support (by support I mean $$$) for that team in addition to the strong community support for the LU Thunderwolves, but maybe the improved travel situation for players to and from Winnipeg means they can accept reduced revenue?
