Team Canada is looking solid at the World Juniors, but who is going to be their starter in net? Did the Winnipeg Jets make the right decision in sending down Andrew Copp and Brandon Tanev to the Manitoba Moose?

As the NHL roster freeze ended, the Jets had to get down to 23 skaters before mid-afternoon. The Jets trimmed their roster by re-assigning forwards Andrew Copp and Brandon Tanev to the Manitoba Moose.
What's to make of the latest transaction?

I'm not the biggest fan of fighting in hockey. The game has changed and with all we now know in this day and age, the role of fighting and fighters in the league has greatly diminished. But that's not to say it has completely disappeared. There comes a time when the gloves need to be dropped and some haymakers need to be thrown. But I absolutely detest staged fights for no apparent reason and I also really dislike a fight that stems from a good, clean hit.
With that out of the way, it's time we take a look at the NHL's leader fighter (at least in terms of fighting majors assessed), Winnipeg Jets' own, Chris Thorburn.

There's something about the Chicago Blackhawks that bring out the best in the Winnipeg Jets. Whether it be the classic logo, the challenge of facing Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews or they like Chicago deep-dish pizza, the Jets seem to bring their best effort against the Blackhawks.

Not sure if Team Canada is for real this year? Well, there you go. The Canadians laid an absolute beating on Slovakia Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre. They won 5-0, peppering the Slovaks with 44 shots for while surrendering only six against en route to their second win of the tournament.
