Jets Doing Things The Chevy Way

    For Jets General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff, taking time to perfect something is the essence of his managing style. The former 16th overall draft pick in 1988 has had time to grow and learn in the game – not only by playing the game on ice level, but by watching, learning, and being a…

Odyua traded to Chicago

                   The Jets made their first deadline trade in the last hour by making a move expected by most, as Johnny Oduya was traded this afternoon to the Hawks in exchange for Chicago’s 2nd and 3rd round picks in 2013. The Jets’ rearguard was in the final…

Deadline Gameday

                  You know that Bob Cole line from last year’s playoff, "Everything is happening"? Today, on the most over-hyped occasion of the year, someone should pull the esteemed gent away from his afternoon rum to declare the opposite, because if there was ever a day that seemed…

Better know a prospect – Paul Postma

Fall 2011 – #4 Winter 2012 – #3 It could easily be argued that Paul Postma is indeed the top prospect in the Winnipeg Jets organization.

Statement Game

  What a difference a week makes. All but left for dead after a home-ice loss to the New York Islanders on Valentine’s Day, the Jets have rattled off four wins in five games–and collected nine of a possible 10 points–and now find themselves atop the Southeast Division standings through 63 games. The Jets looked…

The Pavelec Perplexity

    I don’t necessarily have a bone to pick with Ondrej Pavelec, because at the start of the season if you told me that the Winnipeg Jets were going to make the playoffs, I would have told you that it would be “thanks to” and not “in spite of” the young Jets goaltender. Pavelec…

Division Lead In Sight, But Not So Fast

    Winnipeg Jets fans are in the midst of something that has happened to the majority of Canadian NHL teams in the past 20 years – they’re in the middle of a playoff run that has as much possibility of the team making the playoffs as it does them not making the post season….

    Playoffs are a distant hope for the third straight season in Edmonton this year. The focus now shifts to the pending trade deadline, the kids and, eventually, the draft. This week Allan visits with California hockey fan and writer Earl Sleek, welcomes various voices familiar with both pro and amateur Edmonton prospects and shares…
