Jets Nation Casting Call

  So NHL hockey is back and every nation site is rocking with tons of daily content, comments, arguments and the odd terrible MS paint picture or photoshop.

A Guide To Olli Jokinen For Jets Fans

    Apparently Olli Jokinen landed in Winnipeg after his second stint ended in Calgary this off-season. And now he’s playing with Evander Kane in the Jets top six and has already collected an impressive 0 points in three games played.

Winnipeg-Washington Jan. 22 Corsi

                Winnipeg completed its initial road trip with a very successful evening in DC, beating the Capitals 4-2 via a very complete effort, especially at EV. The Jets’ 2 PP goals were nice, and a welcome change, but the game really turned in the second, when the Jets…

Winnipeg-Boston Jan. 21 Corsi

                  Losses aren’t all created equal, and after a sluggish display Saturday, the Jets almost resembled a hockey team this afternoon in Boston. I’m quite sure what it is about playing the Bruins, but Winnipeg 2.0 hasn’t looked as overmatched against the Bs as they have against…

WPG-OTT Jan. 19 Artisan Style Corsi

                  Yesterday’s putrid affair at MTS wasn’t exactly the start  the Jets would have hoped for, as they were beaten 4-1 by the Senators. Winnipeg’s defensive zone coverage and goaltending looked about as they left things last April, and Craig Anderson was never really stressed after the…

Best of the Nation – 1.20.13

It’s been a crazy week here at the Nations. With the end to the lockout, every team around the league scrambled to get their clubs ready to go in just a week; we saw some trades, some buyouts and a whole mess of low-end free agent signings. Today, we recap the week that was.

Jets Game Day: No More Feel Good Stories

                  After a winter of delay and discontent, the best league in the world resumes activities this afternoon on 13 fronts. I know that a few people have tried to argue that the absence of the NHL didn’t equal the absence of hockey, but in a place…

January 13th News and Notes

                  After asking its fans to spend their fall and early winter doing other things, our country’s favourite time-waster is officially back in business. The league and PA signed their long-awaited MOU this evening, which will allow the NHL to resume something resembling normal operations later today….

Sneak Peak of 2013 Winnipeg Jets

With the NHL back and the Winnipeg Jets about to reconvene at and take over the MTS Centre this winter, the team we saw leave the ice last April will have some additions, subtractions, and some new faces that are rookie fresh.   Since we haven’t had any Jets news for nearly four months, let’s…

Winnipeg Sun: “Where’s Evander?”

If the headline isn’t enough to raise a few eyebrows as to what Winnipeg’s hockey-lovin’, blue-collar fans think about Evander Kane and his superstar ways, check out the poll at the bottom of the page. Having worked our way through the “uncoachable” meme from about a month ago, it’s onto the next ridiculous bit of…
