Not only is it hockey season but Canada is in the throes of an election campaign. Many a lively debate has been held not just about who should be where on the depth chart, but which party you should vote for. So it got me thinking if we could compare sports teams and political parties, which team and party are most alike?
Now before I reveal which party is closest to the Winnipeg Jets, I must remind everyone this is completely unscientific and should not be taken too seriously. It is not an endorsement of any party whatsoever. This was done for fun. But go vote on October 19.

Yup, it is that time of the week again: What Would You Do Wednesday. How do the Jets fans feel about starting a goalie controversy fire? That is the theme of the week for The Nation Network.

The Winnipeg Jets start off the season 3-1-0, thanks in part by a superb 0.942 save percentage.
The Jets' netminder Ondrej Pavelec stopped just over 93 per cent of shots during the road trip, continuing from his strong performance from last season.
It was not long ago though that Pavelec was the figure of scrutiny, with many calling for a buyout.
How sure can we be of this "new Pavelec" is indeed new?

It wasn't a work of art, but the Winnipeg Jets come home 3-1-0 after a four game road trip to start the season. No one would have complained with a 0.500 record with the Jets facing two back-to-back situations.
Let's break down the Jets 4-1win over the New York Rangers.

After a disappointing performance yesterday against the New York Islanders, the Jets have the chance to bounce right back tonight. However, it won't be an easy task, as they face the New York Rangers, who have started the season red hot.
This will be the final game of the Jets season opening road trip out east before they finally come home to play their season opener Friday against the Calgary Flames. So far, the Jets are 2-1-0 on the road trip. You go in to any road trip hoping to, at the very least, split the points. The Jets have already accomplished that regardless of what happens tonight. If they can capture one or both points tonight, it would be a very successful road trip.
It will also be a tremendous test for the Jets to see how they match up against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.
The Jets will certainly need to be much more disciplined tonight then they were last night if they hope to come away with any points.
