Winnipeg's roster was pretty much filled out by mid-July with the Wellwood signing, but there might still be one or two more spots up for grabs at forward. A Twitter discussion this morning not only reminded me about how a couple of potential candidates for those jobs were perceived by the public at the end of last season, but had me wondering how grounded that perception was in reality.

Kevin Cheveldayoff had the air of a pretty relaxed gent this afternoon as he watched his club's batch of prospects finish development camp at the Iceplex, but he did manage to tie up a loose end or two before beginning his weekend by signing two players to one year contracts.

Well, where to begin? For those of you familiar with my time at Flames Nation, you'll know that I've spent the last several years, uh,
enjoying, witnessing, tolerating, sufffering through, Olli Jokinen's handiwork as a member of the Calgary Flames. With that in mind, tonight's news that he's joining the team I actually pay money to watch leaves me somewhat ambivalent.

Ponikarovsky - OT winner vs. Philadelphia
The first day of free agency seems to have settled into a holding pattern until the big boys make up their minds, so it's time for a few thoughts on Winnipeg's activities thus far. After the jump, the Jets lose two popular gents while adding one player that might well turn out to be a pretty good bargain.

The always excellent Eric T. of NHL Numbers and Broad Street Hockey has a piece out this morning that once again shows the tight correlation between scoring chances and Fenwick (shots on goal plus misseed shots) attempts, and that post makes for a nice jumping off point to review the Jets in order to see who does what, and maybe try to add a bit of context to the numbers.
