Flames/Jets Preseason Showdown

According to TSN, Calgary and Pheonix are playing a preseason game this year in Winnipeg. Normally, I don't care much about preseason games, but this is interesting in that the Phoenix Coyotes were once the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets beat Calgary in the 1987 preliminary round of the playoffs in 6 games. No word on what residents of Winnipeg have to say about it, or whether the Coyotes will wear throwback jerseys (please?). If they did, that could set the stage for, say, Hurricanes/Northeast team in Hartford. Which would be...baller. I bet I know some people who wouldn't know whether to go or not.
