Dear Coach Noel,
Enough is enough. It is time sir. It is time to get Alex Burmistrov back in the lineup. Listen, I hear you. I understand that he wasn’t buying in, he has not been acting in the mature, respectable way that he really should be, and you had to do something about it. I understand that the room was openly behind you in this, and heck, if he really has been that bad I was behind you for maybe a game or two. Your plan even worked! Four straight wins and a climb up the standings is more than enough evidence that your lineup is working.
Well, that is if you call 3 forward lines a real “lineup”.

As the trade deadline approaches, the Jets are flirting with a Division Title. Though the focus is still building from within, the team sits in a position to buy for a playoff birth and even a banner raising come October. Sure it's the South East Division Champion banner, but thanks to realignment, our kids won't know that isn't impressive.
In the next couple weeks, we'll trot out some ideas for trade targets for the Jets in the hopes of being able to say 'I told you so' later on. First up, Nikolai Kulemin.

Things really seem to be going well for the Winnipeg Jets as of late. How well you ask? So well that the boys managed to blow a 4-1 lead and still win in a 10 round shootout, have a goaltender that ranks 30th in GAA and 31st in Sv%, and a power play that has lately been featuring the skills of Kyle Wellwood and Nik Antropov, yet still have been playing well enough to sit 3rd in the Eastern Conference and have a 7-2-1 record in their last ten.

We're Live Tweeting!
Jets Nation just joined twitter! To celebrate our arrival in the world, Travis and I (and maybe Brett!) are going to be chatting on twitter tonight during the game with the hashtag #JetsLeafs. Our friends over at Arctic Ice Hockey are going to join us for some Leafs mulching, hockey insight, and probably more than a few jokes we'll all regret in the morning. We're even hoping to trick some Leafs Nationals into talking to us. But they have a limited window as it gets hard to see your screen through teary eyes (pre-game zing! I expect the zing vs. burn rivalry to commence any day now).
We'd love your company in our corner of the twitter universe, so find us with #JetsLeafs
