Stoney Point - Apr. 21, 2015 - It was great to see NHL Playoff Hockey return to Winnipeg last night as the Winnipeg Jets played host to the Anaheim Ducks. Congrats to David Thompson, True North and the fans of Winnipeg.

I remember watching Dale Hawerchuk play there in front of the infamous Winnipeg Whiteout - where fans all wear white for playoff games. What struck me as odd last night though is that this time around, thanks to new NHL rules - the home team wears their dark jerseys at home.

15,016 fans all dressed in white. 18 home team players dressed in blue. Not right.

The NHL should allow the home team to choose the colour of jersey they wish to wear - much like the NFL does. This is just one guy's opinion, but it would be great to see the Jets in white along with their fans.
