Was True North really planning an NHL announcement last week?

I was poking around the HTML source of the Winnipeg NHL season tickets drive website – driveto13.com – on Tuesday where I discovered this HTML comment.

It looks like True North was actually planning an announcement last week. As of today (June 2nd) 5 of 8 presale groups have been activated. This HTML comment points to a timeline starting last Tuesday, just like earlier rumour suggest.

My new employer Think Shift is looking to fill 2 full-time positions.

1. A web developer with a bunch of ASP experience. Full posting.

2. Production & Media Coordinator – as far as I understand this is a bit of a crazy hybrid position where you get to tell a bunch of nerds what to do every day. Full posting.
