    Two surprising facts were unveiled during Saturday night’s game between Winnipeg Jets and the Nashville Predators.  The first is that the Atlanta Thrashers actually did have fans before being moved north of the boarder to Winnipeg prior to the start of this season.  The second is that those fans, although few in number, apparently still […]
