Jets Post-Game 38: Chris Tanev’s Revenge

I went public with my criticisms of Chris Tanev earlier today, and even reveled on the twitter when he was caught in no-man’s land on the Jets powerplay goal.

JGD 38: Twelve man rosters

The Vancouver Province newspaper is trolling Jets fans on twitter today in a manner that fits the Canucks’ personality so perfectly. I’m sure if you mention politely that it’s probably a bit below them, they’ll take a dive and file for libel, so watch yourselves Jets fans.  In all seriousness, the Canucks have corrected a…

Jets Post-Game 36: The Shame of It

Will this be the Jets’ Last Supper? Of course the lowest scoring team since 1967 expansion scored 4 against the Jets to win in regulation for the first time since November 15th.

JGD 36: Grieving a Season Ended Before Its Time

The challenge for fans this season will be managing all five stages of the grief process. Some remain in denial, including looking at a ‘healthy’ depth chart as though that team was great, or prattling on about ‘consistency.’ For others, that ended after the Florida game, or perhaps after seeing Thorburn against Western conference teams….
