Call it what you will, but the Winnipeg Jets brought their "A" game to the hangar on Monday night against a very difficult and stingy opponent.

At the end of the night, they had their sixth win of the season and two points in the bag.

The best part of the game was not the fact that the Jets had goals from five different players, but that it was a complete 60 minute effort from start to finish.

As this year’s new inductees to the Hall were feted on Monday, I have taken up Ed’s gauntlet. I have decided to take it upon myself to write an open letter on Mr. Sweeney’s behalf in hopes that it might alert Bill Hay or Jim Gregory or Harry Sinden or somebody on the Hall of Fame selection committee to the indisputable fact that to the hockey historians in the middle of Canada, the Toronto-based Hall is still a sad Eastern/American joke.
