Don Cherry would invest in Jets

Grapes says he’d buy part of a team in the ‘Peg—if anyone asked him


 

Under the heading of “uh yeah, thanks:” Don Cherry says he’d be willing to invest his own money in a Winnipeg NHL franchise, because the ‘Peg is such a great hockey town. Notwithstanding the question of who would want to go into business with Grapes (other than those wacky Cold-FX guys), one wonders if the Hockey Night in Canada legend and former coach is being too cute by half. With this week’s council vote guaranteeing the City of Glendale will cover the Phoenix Coyotes’ financial losses, the team is guaranteed to stay put for at least a year. If the ‘Yotes are still in play a year from now—if a Winnipeg offer is still on the table, if the NHL is really willing to let the team come North—he could conceivably ask to buy in. Or, as a wise man once said: if we had some ham, we could have some ham and eggs, if we had some eggs.

  1. I would, if I had that kind of money, bring them back!

    Plus, I am not going back to Arizona, I am boycotting it !

    • But would you go to investor meetings if Don Cherry was there? I mean a jersey redesign for every game is going to be expensive.

  2. We need someone with deep pockets and an open mind, not someone with with shallow perspective and closed mind.
