They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so in that vein we'd like to borrow a page from the playbook of other Nation Network sites and introduce our very own weekly mailbag feature which we have craftily re-named Jets Nation Air Mail because nothing says "we write about a team named after aviation equipment" like associating regular features with aviation themes!
If you have a burning question about the Jets, hockey in general or our little corner of the Nation you can forward them to @NHLJetsNation or @GameTimeArt with the hashtag #JNAirMail on the Twitter. You can also send them to us on our Facebook page.
