Jets prepare for road date with Blackhawks

The Winnipeg Jets will face off against the Chicago Blackhawks, the current leader of the Central Division of the Western Conference, next Tuesday evening at the United Center in Chicago. The Jets have been playing exceedingly well of late, good enough to get them into prime playoff position, but they’ll have a stern test on […]

Winnipeg Jets Playoff To Do List

It hurts to say this as a Winnipeg Jets fan, but this season has hurt me and my fellow fans. Let’s break down how this team is not a playoff contender, far from even making the playoffs and what they need to do if they want to win. #1: Far Below Sub-Par Goaltending For all […]

How Much Mark Scheifele Means to the Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets latest six game pointless streak really came at an inconvenient time. Thanks, Captain Obvious. It isn't any secret though why it happened when it did. On March 4th, rookie Mark Scheifele – the face of the franchise – went down due to an injury and that 3-2 loss at the hand of […]

Monday Morning Musings: Confidence Breeds Success

Confidence is infectious. Especially when the leader of the troops is emitting it as much as Ron Hainsey used to give the puck away (Sorry Ron). But the Winnipeg Jets are more confident when crossing the .500 percentage threshold. Add to that a 3-1 win against the Central Division leading Chicago Blackhawks in their own […]

Jets Look To Overcome Mediocre Status

So maybe it was the coach after all, eh? Poor Claude Noel, even one game over the .500 mark didn't do it – probably had to do with how much the first half of the 2013-14 season dipped into that record. Two winning seasons – 37-35-10 and 24-21-3 – but still no playoffs followed by […]

Maurice the Right Fit in Winnipeg

When Paul Maurice was announced as the new head coach of the Winnipeg Jets, my gut feeling was that this team can finally do something positive. Didn't we already have Christmas? Because it felt like a late Christmas gift: An experienced coach of over 1,000 NHL games along with AHL and KHL experience coaching the […]

Jets All Out Top 25 Mid-Season Rankings

#25: James Wright, Centre Last Year's Ranking: N/A Pre-Season Ranking: 23 Mid-Season Ranking: 25 Difference: -2   I am not a fan of James Wright and I don't think he needs to be on this team.  There are other players who should be in his spot full-time, such as Eric Tangradi or Anthony Peluso or […]

Monday Morning Musings: Wright Not Right & Jets Halfway Home

Wright Not the Right Fit In Winnipeg The biggest complaint I have had as a Jets fan over the two and a half seasons the team has been back hasn't been the lack of Ron Hainsey's defensive skills or even the lack of NIk Antropov's speed – it is the fact the Jets regularly dress […]

Jets Woulds, Coulds, & Shoulds List

It's season three in Winnipeg and enough time has passed since the Jets returned to start a should, would, and could list for the team and franchise of the past two and change seasons as well as towards the present and future of the team.   Jacob Trouba should be in the running for the […]

Four Future Jets Take On World Juniors

I always enjoy taking a sneak peek at the future of the Winnipeg Jets.  It brings optimism, hope, and a sense that the franchise is actually going somewhere. And for the first time in the entire franchise's history – Atlanta and Winnipeg – the team actually knows how to draft quality players who will be […]

Trouba Needs to be in Running for Calder

If there is one thing I know that will monumentally disappoint me this season with the Winnipeg Jets – other than the fact that we are stuck in .500 purgatory – is that Jacob Trouba will somehow be overlooked in the race for the Calder Trophy. Through 16 games this season, the Jets rookie defenseman […]

Evander Kane……is Soft

Disclaimer: This article is in no way, shape, or form written because I have a personal vendetta against Evander Kane and the pitiful effort he is putting in as far as my Fantasy Hockey Team goes this season.  There I said it. Evander Kane. Words to describe him: quick, fast, speedy, big, somewhat dynamic, very […]

Little Shining Despite Jets Dismal Start

There's something I've always admired about Bryan Little. He works hard, never really speaks out, never really shines super bright. But he always seems to work as hard as he can and never takes tons of credit. In all, Bryan Little seems to be the humble guy who is currently leading the Jets in scoring. […]

Some Jets Stats to Ponder

Understatement of the first month of the 2013-14 season: the Winnipeg Jets have not gotten off to a great start. For fans, points of frustration include coach Claude Noel, goalie Ondrej Pavelec, the inconsistency of the forward group, or even the deplorabale play of the defense corps. All good talking points of frustration.   All […]
