Welcome to this week's version of What Would You Do Wednesday where you are asked a question and debate among yourselves what the answer is. Unfortunately, the only prize you will receive will be the most Twitter mentions.

The Winnipeg Jets have a problem. A big problem. His name is Dustin Byfuglien. No, he's not a cancer in the locker room. Yes, he's an excellent hockey player. In fact, Big Buff was the lone Jets representative at the recent John Scott celebration, officially known as the NHL All-Star Game in Nashville.

I had the recent pleasure of taking part of the TSN Analytics show. The interview can be found here (the January 30th, 2016 episode) if you wish to take a listen.
The major questions they gave me were my opinion on the Evander Kane and Tyler Myers trade one year later, and also what do I think the Winnipeg Jets should do with Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien. There were also some untouched questions they preemptively emailed me about, when they sent me a list of possible topics.
I had researched and written a few points on each topic prior to the interview, and had promised on Twitter to expand on the discussions on the show.
So, here is my point form notes being expanded into far more in-depth, long-paragraph form...

We now officially dub the last nine games: "The Homestand From Hell".
