Since Gary Bettman decided to personally address the team's losses in Winnipeg, rumors have become very persistent about the possibility of the team moving again.

Obviously, when talking about moving an NHL team, Quebec always comes up in the rumors.

The commissioner held a press conference on Tuesday to address the situation, and he was quite clear in his statements.

Bettman - "This is a place where hockey matters."

So the rumors can stop; the Jets remain in Winnipeg, and they have Bettman's full confidence.

After all, it would have been ironic for him to fight so hard for a seemingly doomed franchise in Arizona and then throw in the towel on another at the first difficulty.
