The Homestand from the Heavens continues tonight, with yet another big game for your Winnipeg Jets. After coming off the worst stretch of hockey pretty much imaginable, the Jets have come home and taken advantage of the schedule which, thanks be to the Universe, has brought to Winnipeg some of the biggest patsies in the Leaue. And tonight is no different, as the lowly Florida Panthers visit the MTS Centre.

Prior to this trade deadline, we talked about the idea that the team's actions would give us a tell about the direction of the organization, and about how they perceived their window of opportunity. The action taken? Adding Mike Santorelli via waivers - a bubble player from the worst team in the league this season. I think we all wanted something more decisive, though fans seemed split between buying and selling, and a terrible streak of losing that saw the division title simply slip through our fingers peaked the frustration at our current management group.

We're still left with the question of when this management group will choose to compete, and a further question of what they intend the roster to look like when they do.

Howdy hockey people.

A while back, I wrote about how I make hockey highlight packs for Hockey Night in Canada, specifically for the web (cbcsports.ca). The feedback was largely positive, so I want to write about it again.

On top on CBC, I’ve also recently taken a freelance position at the NHL Network. While there are a lot of similarities between the two jobs, there are some key differences, too.

If you’re interested in how hockey highlights get done, here’s how we do it.

Game #41 Vs Buffalo: Last chances

Buffalo Sabers (16-17-6) At

Your Winnipeg Jets (19-19-2)

Last Meeting: February 19th, Jets 2 – Sabres 1

Broadcast: TSN Jets

Puck Drop: 7:00 (CT)

Preview

Buffalo is the only team in the Eastern Conference with a losing record against the Southeast Division. On top of it, they shipped out Pominville, Leopold, and Regehr since the last time the Jets played them, a 2-1 win back in the heady days of February. Still, the Jets at 3-7 in the last ten, and the Sabres have won 3 straight – apparently galvanized by their underdog status. The Jets are favoured to win, but have a meaningfully worse goal differential and are one of only ten teams in the league with fewer than 100 goals for – and a leader (along with Nashville) among that ignominious third for games played. Somehow, some way as we hold our breath for another puck drop.

This is a story about three young lads who go travelling to Amsterdam in search of optimistic adventure. Two are Canadian, one is an Australian who is now the newest resident of Edmonton and Wanye Manor. We meet up with an ex-pat Canadian living in Amsterdam who sobers us up more than anything that has ever happened before in the history of time.

It ain't a story about looking cool - that's for sure. Read on at your own risk.
