    The nhl is notorious for pushing small market teams (and bankrupt teams), not that this is the case.
    Considering they play in a minor league rink, I'd say it's safe to say they have a small market.

    Honestly, though it doesn't matter. If Jets or Vegas got to the finals it would be a good story and fun for hockey fans in general, regardless of TV numbers.

    I think you're going to have a really hard time telling the Winnepeg Whiteout crowd that they're a small market because they play in a minor league rink.
    Rink size ≠ passion/market.

    Passion and market size are not the same thing.

    Is it really a minor league rink I thought there were rules where each arena must have a minimum seating capacity?

    I have no idea. I was just using those words because those words were used. Didn't look it up.

    Home of the Manitoba Moose before the Jets moved in. It's the smallest area in the NHL. Next closest is Barclays which was not built to host hockey games.

    Jets/Vegas would be the most interesting WCF matchup in a long, long time. I picked Nashville but I can't root against the Jets.

    Appropriately, this one is going 7.

    They finally stopped Scheifele and his line.

    That's the Blueprint into stopping the firepower scoring of the Jets

    Very excited for this Game 7. Hockey game of the Year.

    The Jets showed their dominance playing their best in Game 5. Nashville showed their Championship meddle, shutting down the Jets speed and O in playing their best game in Game 6. Thursday night the Jets will play their fastest game possible and Nashville will make their best D matchups in front of a frenetic crowd. So close, it is going to come down to the best goalie that night.

    Of course the series that goes 7 has the chick between the glass. I thought the comment “It looks like a Winnepeg power play” after 30 + seconds of OZ time was riveting.

    Yeah, don't understand it. However, both teams will be extra anxious and rested. The Jets already want to play fast and win every loose puck. It is all their coach will talk about. This could be a game exploding with energy by the time they drop the puck. Expecting odd man rushes, high-speed collisions and quick counter attacks. My prediction? One of the goalies will make the difference and the team that scores first will win.

    Game 7 history - the team that scores first (is around, may be off by one or two) 122 W and 40 L.
