JGD 29: Jumping the Shark

Our title today came from some of the twitter fallout over news that Chris Thorburn is skating in Evander Kane's place on the second line, and John Albert - not Eric O'Dell - has been recalled. Of course, the phrase is a long standing reference to the episode of Happy Days in which the Fonz water-skied over a shark, signaling to audiences that the show was out of ideas and had lost its original charm. 

For that reason, I typed "jumped the shark" into google images. That decision would change all our lives, as this article immediately became a platform for a contest to determine which image from that search is the absolute worst ever.

To celebrate our collective genius, we're going to look back at some of our best work from November.

Evander Kane......is Soft

Disclaimer: This article is in no way, shape, or form written because I have a personal vendetta against Evander Kane and the pitiful effort he is putting in as far as my Fantasy Hockey Team goes this season.  There I said it.

Evander Kane.

Words to describe him: quick, fast, speedy, big, somewhat dynamic, very problematic, and always egomatic.

Oh, and add the adjective soft to that list too.

After being injured in Friday's game in Philadelphia - a game that the Jets needed him to keep playing for two points - Evander Kane has shown Jets fans just what he is made of.

His core, his centre, his mantra has been clearly released for public viewing.
