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.

Good Evening Jets Nation! The Jets played a tightly checked game against the San Jose Sharks, but would end up losing 4-1. The score looks as bad as the game was, though the last two Sharks goals came in the final minutes of the third period
The Jets would fall prey to penalties again, despite having a decent penalty kill for most of the game.
Lets take a look at the game while the Jets look for answers.

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.

The Winnipeg Jets welcome the San Jose Sharks to the MTS Centre tonight, as they look to keep from losing their third consecutive game.
This will be the second meeting of the season between the Jets and Sharks. Their first meeting came just ten days ago in San Jose, where the Jets came away with a 4-1 win. Drew Stafford, Matthieu Perreault, Nik Ehlers and Joel Armia provided the goals for the Jets, with Blake Wheeler recording two assists. Brent Burns scored for the Sharks.
