This is a story about three young lads who go travelling to Amsterdam in search of optimistic adventure. Two are Canadian, one is an Australian who is now the newest resident of Edmonton and Wanye Manor. We meet up with an ex-pat Canadian living in Amsterdam who sobers us up more than anything that has ever happened before in the history of time.

It ain't a story about looking cool - that's for sure. Read on at your own risk.

Put on your finest TV clothes  - it's Jets Game day!!

In their first game after the Trade deadline, the Jets fly to Montreal to take on the Montreal Canadiens tonight. With only 10 games left in the Season, and with teams catching up to them in the Standings, there's no better time than now for the Jets to get their groove back. Can they salvage 2 points out of their Eastern roadtrip from hell? Can they stop playing like crap and finally pull away from the pack in the 'Turtle Bowl' that is the Southeast Division race? Will the loss of Nik Antropov matter at all? Questions abound as we await this matchup of Divison Leaders.

Jets Trade Deadline: What is our window of success?

We heard in the second intermission of last night's game what we all wanted to hear - that Cheveldayoff knows we need to upgrade the right wing and that there are other additions that could be made. He also spoke of the need to continue to build for the future. We can hope that this team intends to continue to add NHL hockey players along with prospects. The 'be good' model we can call it. Inside are some (okay, many) thoughts on what shape that might take today.

Game #38 at Islanders: Deadline eve

April 02 2013 04:15PM

New York Islanders (17-16-3) Vs.
Your Winnipeg Jets (18-17-2)
 
Last Meeting:
January 27th, Jets 5 - Islanders 4 (OT)
 
Broadcast:
TV: TSN Jets
Puck Drop: 6:00 (CT) 

Preview 

It's a tough day for Jets fans. By now we all know the situation - still atop the Southeat division, but only four points up on Carolina and a surging Washington, both of whom have games in hand. The Jets deficiencies have been on display this past week, with a lack of scoring, an ineffective powerplay, depth issues, system breakdowns, and poor goaltending all seeming to take turns in costing the team five of its last seven games - starting with the back-to-back head-shakers against Washington that let them back into the race. Most years, the Islanders would be a respite from playing teams with NHL players, but added talent on the blue line, Evgeni Nabokov (a poor goalie this year, but .040 pts better than their backup), a little luck, and the John Tavares show have vaulted the team into a tie for 8th in the East. Lucky for us, they're still awful at home.
