It may be bitterly cold outside, but things are heating up inside the Winnipeg Jets locker room. Whether that's a good or bad thing remains to be seen but the Jets do have a game to focus on as divisional rival Nashville pays their first visit to the MTS Centre on Thursday.

When we first launched OilersNation.com back in 2007 we intended on watching the Oilers return to the Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years and become a perennial powerhouse of hockey. A model of consistency. A team studied by Coaches for a generation to come for “how to build a winning franchise.” 

So when it became clear THAT wasn’t happening we started launching other team sites in 2009 starting with FlamesNation.ca. When that didn’t collapse or have a denial of service attack we started putting more and more sites out there creating 5 sites, partnering on 1 and buying 3 sites outright bringing the total to 9.

And today marks the 10th site in the Nation Network launching – WingsNation.com.

What do the Winnipeg Jets have in Tyler Myers?

A Winnipeg Free Press article drew some attention on Twitter a couple weeks ago when Paul Wiecek wrote about Tyler Myers,  calling him the Jets' top defenceman. 

It's probably fair to say that most don't see Myers as Winnipeg's best blueliner. At least one - if not all three - of Dustin Byfuglien, Tobias Enstrom, and Jacob Trouba are likely better than the Jets' hulking, surprisingly-not-Slovakian defenceman.

But Wiecek's article speaks to an interesting divide in opinion on Myers' play. Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has some franchise-shaping decisions ahead of him with the Jets; trying to figure out what they have in Tyler Myers will be a big factor in the future of the Winnipeg blueline.
