10 Things We’ve Learned

Here are the 10 things we learned during Wednesday night’s 4-3 Jets overtime loss in Washington: 1. The Jets are now 8-9-4 after the loss to Washington. Caude Noel’s team is so close to being good, it’s scary. But dumb mistakes, by both the players and the coach, have cost the Jets at least seven…

Dustin Byfuglien: Turning It Around

Ten games into the season, Dustin Byfuglien’s numbers were terrible. In those 10 contests, Byfuglien had one goal and three assists, along with a minus-5 rating. Those numbers, however seem to have turned a corner. In the last 10 games, Byfuglien has three goals, seven assists, and a respectable minus-1 rating. What happened?

Impossible to Give The Jets a Grade After 20 Crazy Games

 It’s one of those things that hockey writers do at certain points of a long season. The team they cover has a day off, it has just played its 20th or 40th or 60th game of the season and you, the journalist, really have nothing more to write about until they go back to practice….



Going into the offseason I thought it was pretty unlikely that I would receive a contract offer in the NHL. That is the circle of life in the NHL.



Impossibly, the 2011-12 NHL Season is rapidly closing in on the quarter mark already. Where does the time go? Lowetide talks with his usual wide assortment of guests his week and the Blackhawks get some time in the hot seat as Jesse Rogers from ESPN Chicago and Sam from Second City Hockey talk about their…

The Greatest Week in the New Era

One week ago, the Winnipeg Jets lost 2-1 in Columbus. Three games and seven days later all you can think is, "How the hell did that happen?" It’s amazing. The Jets that completed a week-long roller-coaster ride this past Saturday afternoon, was a completely different hockey team than the one that couldn’t muster any kind…

Six thoughts 11/19/11: Jets 6-4 Flyers

In a matinee on Hockey Night in Canada, the Winnipeg Jets jumped out (as usual) to an early lead at home, and withstood a couple of late technical glitches, including one by CBC, hanging on for a 6-4 win over the Flyers. They now have a 2-0 record over Philadelphia, with a goals for/against record…


Madness part Deux? Jets v Flyers

Be honest, October 27th was special, fun, intriguing, a train wreck. It was great drama, a spectacle to be sure. It was not a well played hockey game and guaranteed not to happen again anytime soon. See, coaches are united by one common thread; they want to win 1-0. Sure there is the odd guy…


The Streaky Jets: Forrest Gump’s Box of Chocolates.

  If there is one thing that will keep Winnipeg Jets fans screaming for more this season, it’s the fact that their beloved team is so wonderfully inconsistent. Great one night, bad for three or four, great for a couple more, bad again. This is not a team like Boston that is going to run…


FGD: Do Something

The Calgary Flames are almost two months into the season and this campaign has far too many similarities to the team that started last year in a mediocre fashion.  The problem is, last year the Flames finished with a decent record thanks to a scorching two month span after the turn of the calendar.  Expecting…


Six thoughts 11/17/11 Jets 4:1 Capitals

Coming off a big Monday win against one division rival at home, the Winnipeg Jets met the Washington Capitals for the first time this season and had a big win against this division rival as well. Geographically, the two probably do not qualify as being in the “Southeast” but in the standings, they all count,…
