Last week we designed a survey to get a better understanding of what works on the Nation Network and what doesn't. The answers that came back were all across the spectrum - some provided great insight, others provided a good laugh, others made us want to rethink our chosen profession. 

We sat down at Nation HQ this morning with a fresh glass of thinking Rye and read everyone's responses - over 1100 in total! - from bow to stern. A big thank you goes out to everyone who took the time to answer this thing. Surveys are SO annoying - we appreciate you taking time out of your life to provide us with key information to drive our redevelopment. 

Our summary findings can be found after the jump.

After appearing in 46 regular season games in his first season with the Jets, Matt Halischuk was allowed to test the open market this off-season. Fast forward a couple months, and Halischuk never signed a deal with another NHL team. Instead, Halischuk was brought back into the mix for the Jets on a two-way deal carrying a $725K cap hit.

Jets double pin below goal line on PK.

The Nations Network sent this Jets Nation writer to the Young Stars Tournament in Penticton, BC. I'm judging your team and bringing you the view from the Press Box.

The Jets opened the Young Stars Tournament against the Flames in a thrilling, high-tempo game with a lot more offensive skill than defensive interest. The Jets struggled badly to manage the Flames' cycle, but in transition, opened the floodgates on Calgary's blueline to create a lot of chances. 

Inside we'll begin where we left off last year - systems stuff at the top and then a review of every player to follow. I missed the first period of this game and haven't watched it streaming yet, so anything I missed goes in the comments, please! You can see the game on YouTube here.
