September 27 2015 07:49PM

You knew it was going to be a long night when you saw the Wild's roster. You knew it was going to be a long night when you saw Anthony Peluso left to be in charge of boxing out Nino Niederreiter.

Take a deep breath Jets fans, this was just a preseason game, a really bad preseason game against a Wild team full of vets.

It's a Sunday preseason showdown between Central division rivals as the Jets take on the Minnesota Wild and with the Jets roster starting to be trimmed, it's maybe a final chance for young players to leave one last impression on Paul Maurice and coaching staff.

That sucked didn't it?

Well, that brings me to Friday night's preseason contest against the Edmonton Oilers.

It seemed just like yesterday that the Winnipeg Jets were opening training camp. Now we are already looking at the third game. How far we've come.

Anyways, a near-optimal Jets line up will host a McDavidless Oilers, almost the ying to Wednesday's yang.
