If the headline isn't enough to raise a few eyebrows as to what Winnipeg's hockey-lovin', blue-collar fans think about Evander Kane and his superstar ways, check out the poll at the bottom of the page. Having worked our way through the "uncoachable" meme from about a month ago, it's onto the next ridiculous bit of criticism of Kane, who is, to be clear, the only player who scored 30 goals last year below the age of 21. He is also, along with Steven Stamkos, Sidney Crosby and Jordan Staal, are the only players to score 60 or more times before turning 21 since the lost season.
Head to Twitter and pump in Evander Kane's name. You will find dozens of tweets from outside Winnipeg defending Kane from the attacks he takes within the Winnipeg media. I'm sure Evander, who is named after a boxer and once took out Matt Cooke with a single punch, doesn't need our help. The "trending article" is a Winnipeg Sun 200-word screwjob with the teaser "Where's Evander?" and tagline "Jets forward a no-show on the ice."

For whatever reason, I'm tracking scoring chances in the Florida and New Jersey series, and, seeing as the Panthers are the Southeast Division brethren/rivals of the Winnipeg Jets, it may be of some interest to post these numbers here. Or, visiting Devils or Panthers fans may frequent this blog, because it has posted information pertaining to their teams they can't get anywhere else:

The Vancouver Canucks were a tough opponent for the Winnipeg Jets, and they didn't escape the West Coast alive, blowing a third period lead despite a strong performance from Ondrej Pavelec and a beauty goal by Blake Wheeler to put the team ahead.
