Well, it's finally here. Jets 2.0 begin their real play this afternoon not simply as the focus of a city's interest, but as the center of the hockey world for at least one day, which seemed utterly inconceivable six months ago. It's still hard to accept, to be honest, but even those of us inclined to cynicism about the community's mood in the runup to today's event have had to acknowledge that something good is on the cusp. It's fair to say that for many Winnipeggers, today is a quasi-religious celebration of something lost and returned in its own way.

Part 3 of 3 of the pre-season analysis of the Jets roster using the Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) technique concludes with the goaltenders. Again, apologies for contradicting myself here and against the other 2 blogs however the writer try to stay away from black-and-white and deal in shades of grey (or maybe he is just wishy-washy).
 
Going forward, should the ever-mighty Nation Network overloads agree, look for this author to do a post-month overview of the Jets play after each calendar month ends with references back to the points made in these 3 articles.

Tomorrow morning several thousand of Winnipeggers are going to be calling in sick and nursing a major hangover. For many it will be the start of a 4-day weekend. Most if not all Jets fan will miss the small item on the news that the Winnipeg Jets picked up Brett MacLean today. Sometimes a minor transaction like this truly does mean very little. Other times, these little moves can change the course of a franchise. Look no further than Marty St. Louis or Ray Whitney as both players were picked up on waivers at one point in their career.
