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.
