Well, I guess we all know what Detroit felt like about a week ago. It’s not a very nice feeling is it?

Fenwick chart (shots + missed shots) from Extraskater.com
In a game that the Jets thoroughly dominated at even strength, they were ultimately defeated due to a bad bounce, defensive lapses, and a painfully horrible penalty kill.

An Oiler diehard living in Vancouver writing about the Jets. It’s a confusing time for one man’s fandom. “You can’t have split loyalties,” cries out the true fan. “That’s not how it works!” Yet it does and I do and it keeps me sliding up and down a continuum of fanaticism that colours me bluer than an Albert King song or brighter yellow than August sunshine, all depending on the time and place. I’m old enough to remember the glories of Gretz, I lived in Winnipeg while the Jets were howling mournfully in the desert and I narrowly avoided a riot in Vancouver. If our fandom is an extension of our true selves then hand me a sonic screwdriver and fire up the TARDIS because I keep regenerating: the same but different and a little wearier every time. Even St. Christopher would tell me to give it up already because there are no more Cups in sight, not by a long shot.

From the opening puck drop, the game felt inevitable. Setoguchi was buzzing, the Jets controlled the puck, and chances on net seemed to come easily. Casual errors, turn overs by defencemen at the offensive blue line, and Reto Berra are the reasons the Jets managed just a single point against a poor team playing a poor game.

It's that time again.
The Jets' prospects are starting to sort themselves into groups, with a few still showing strong positive arrows, and others threatening to burn a year without significant progress.
The team's skill-first draft class in 2013 continues to be the most impressive group of prospects in the system, with a number of 2011 and 2012 picks starting to fall behind.
