Now, I am in no means writing off the Jets of this season. Not in the least. I still fully expect a Cup run - and victory - over the Canucks. I can see Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien sharing the Conn Smythe - a first! - in late June, on home ice in Game 6, because, let's face it, they won't have home ice advantage. The headlines will read "Giant effort from Little", "Big Shift Dustin time for Byfuglien" and "Jets soar to Cup Win, Pigs remain flightless; Vancouver Riots again". Or something like that. Whatever the headlines, know they will contain puns.

After the jump: the single-biggest story in the NHL last week, a mess of trades, injuries, and trade rumours, how bloggers are once again undermining Western society, and Graphic Comments. Also - and this is important - the Winnipeg Jets' all-time greatest moustaches.

Things seem to be going a little bonkers in the Peg lately. At least hockey wise that is. In the last week or so we’ve had a rather angry and disappointed fan base around these parts, as is to be seen when your team is 5-6-1, 11th in the Eastern Conference, and has been apparently lacking the effort you’d expect from a professional hockey team. That being said, it’s time to slow down for a minute here and get our heads on straight, and really think about what exactly is going on.
