Midwest Division?!

    Spurred by the relocation of the Jets, and a myriad of travel concerns from other teams, the NHL has decided upon their Realignment plans. It’s unofficial at the moment, but as it stands now, the Jets will no longer find themselves as members of the Southeast division, which must be a relief to both…


Re-Alignment and the Winnipeg Jets

    Well it’s about time. Finally, after spending the last two seasons in the distant Southeastern Division, the Winnipeg Jets and their fans are starting to hear some information regarding the NHL’s pending re-alignment. Over the weekend, CBC’s Elliotte Friedman tweeted out what appears to be the final (although not yet finalized) re-alignment proposal…


The Whole World is Smiling with Blake Wheeler

    Prior to the Buffalo last week, various Jets were quoted about the need for positivity. Wheeler in particular started talking about changing his attitude. Sure enough, after earning a win against Buffalo, Blake Wheeler’s new sunny disposition took centre stage in the press. Both the Winnipeg Free Press and Sun ran articles that would…


The Budweiser Red Light

  By now most of have heard of this new Budweiser red light thing. For those of you living under a rock (or who PVR every game and zip through commercials), Bud has come up with a replica goal light which you can sync with your favorite team, install in your house, and have it…


Where are the Jets at?

    Regular readers will know that I tend to focus on windows of opportunity and the draft, one of the reasons I’m such a big fan of Jay Feaster’s work in Calgary (tongue planted firmly in cheek). Looking over the Jets situation this season, I think they have the opportunity to do something this…

What Just Happened? Jets Blueline Injury Woes

    Remember how wonderful things were looking on the blue line about a week ago? Zach Bogosian was back, Byfuglien was healthy, Redmond was looking spectacular, and it looked like the Jets had pieces to move in their search for another man up front. Flash forward a mere 7 days and suddenly the Jets…


Looking Ahead to the 2013/2014 Winnipeg Jets

    Now, I am in no means writing off the Jets of this season. Not in the least. I still fully expect a Cup run – and victory – over the Canucks. I can see Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien sharing the Conn Smythe – a first! – in late June, on home ice…


Nations Freeroll – Week of February 18th

    We’ve run a few of these recently and there seemed to be some interest, so Draft Street has set up another Nations Freeroll contest for this week. Here’s a run-down of the rules for those who are unfamiliar:


Should the Jets make a move on O’Reilly?

Spector’s Hockey (written by the Hockey News’ Lyle Richardson and in no way affiliated with Sportsnet’s Mark Spector) cited an article by ESPN’s Craig Custance which claims that " the Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames and Phoenix Coyotes (as the) top trade destinations for Colorado Avalanche holdout center Ryan O’Reilly." Should the Winnipeg Jets add…


Best of the Nation: 2.17.13

After the jump: the single-biggest story in the NHL last week, a mess of trades, injuries, and trade rumours, how bloggers are once again undermining Western society, and Graphic Comments. Also – and this is important – the Winnipeg Jets’ all-time greatest moustaches.


Everybody Take A Breath

    Things seem to be going a little bonkers in the Peg lately.  At least hockey wise that is.  In the last week or so we’ve had a rather angry and disappointed fan base around these parts, as is to be seen when your team is 5-6-1, 11th in the Eastern Conference, and has…
