You ever go on a never-ending YouTube journey until four in the morning? Well you're about to go on one.
While on a trip to Edmonton with the fine folks at Oilers Nation last week, we visited the West Edmonton Mall. While walking around, we came across an indoor ice rink right in the middle of the mall. I had heard of this place in interviews with Jordan Eberle and Steven Stamkos in the past. I realized that this is where The Brick Tournament is played.
I mentioned that it would be really cool to see footage of guys like Eberle and Stamkos as kids playing novice. Not long after, Avry showed me that not only is there footage - there's tonnes of it!
Check these gems out!

A stunning performance by the Jets exposed the thinning depth of the injury ravaged Red Wings. Winnipeg owned the puck against the league's defining possession team, controlled the neutral zone, and drove to the crease. It looked like a brand new Jets team at times.

Time ruins all things.
The Winged Wheel will skate at the MTS Centre tonight. It's an exciting group to watch as one of only a few clubs to hold out against the most recent 'Turn to Grit' we've seen since the success of Boston and LA. While much of the league is hunting for Milan Lucic, trying to win some psychological war, and filling their depth with the young and cheap, Detroit continues to develop players slowly and instill a puck centric mentality.
It's a small, old group with outstanding puck support and possession. Even on a night in which the Jets are likely to lose, try to enjoy watching a system that refuses to give up the puck, and the aging stars that make it possible.

For the second time this year I’m able to present the Jets scoring chances following a game that produced results greatly affected by the score. Unlike the game against the Blues early last week, the twitter-despair was completely accurate in explaining how terrible this game really was for the Jets from the second period onwards. Regardless, here are the chances from Saturday’s matchup against the ‘Hawks.

There’s only really one word that can sum up this game for me. Outclassed.
