The Jets' mid-week, Eastern-conference-also-ran back-to-back concludes today with a contest against a team with an historical misnomer for a city name. You see, the American Bison (Bison Bison) is not a buffalo at all! (Gasps!) The contest is effectively won.

The Sabres enter tonight having won three straight to pull into a three-way tie for last with the lowly Oilers and the also lowly Blue Jackets. The team's verbal is, of course, about getting their sea legs. Still, the team sports a league worst -34 goal differential and lost the three games prior to their winning streak by a combined 18-5. Are wins against Toronto, San Jose, and Washington enough to make us believe Ted Nolan has found a combination that works?

No matter how good or poor a team is playing, fans always seem to be concerned about a team’s prospect list and who will be the next player to make a difference on the team. The Jets’ faithful are no different
