Maybe the best part of the game
That was a brutal afternoon for Jets fans everywhere. The team was undone by the coaching adjustments of the Blackhawks early in the second, Pavelec was chased from the net, and we had to listen to Greg Millen. Ack.

With the Jets struggling in the standings, and facing four injuries to depth defenders, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has taken action the way we've come to expect. The Jets claimed defencemen Keaton Ellerby off waivers from the LA Kings.
Ellerby gets reported often as a former 1st round pick, but it should be noted it was 10th overall in 2007 to the permanently re-building Florida Panthers. Despite quietly accumulating 160 NHL games, Ellerby has never lived up to his pedigree.
Inside we'll look at what Ellerby brings to the Jets.

Ah, day time hockey. The perfect excuse not to go to Ikea on a Saturday, and a fine reason to be drunk before dinner.
Winnipeg sits in a tie for second last in the West this morning, which is good enough to be tied for a playoff spot with Washington in the East. The more things change...

As I settled in on Thursday night to watch this game, I was preparing for the worst. After all the negative attention, all the hate on Toby Enstrom and the overall negative demeanor that resulted from the loss I was expecting to watch the Jets get completely out-manned and over powered for a couple hours. Maybe it was the low expectations, but I really didn’t think they played that poorly, and the scoring chance count supports that notion.
