One month down, six to go.
The Jets began the 2013/14 campaign winning their first two games, something that had not occured since the 2009-2010 season when they were still the Atlanta Thrashers. Ending the first month a meager 5-7-2, the Jets sat in sixth place in the Central Division with just 12 points.
With hopes for just the second playoff appearance in Franchise history, we look into how this October stacks up against season starts since the expansion Thrashers joined the league in 1999.

I think “dominant” is a good term to wrap this game up. The Jets (surprisingly) out-classed the Wings Monday night, with scoring chance numbers so different it even shocked me.

On this episode of the podcast, the guys have a tough time playing GM. We also discussed what we should do with Scheifele (before he decided to light up the Red Wings), the NHL thinking about including front offices in player fines and a little love for Tobias Enström.

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.
