Jets Game Day: A Good ‘ol Hockey Game

Tonight, your Winnipeg Jets battle the iconic Lightning of Tampa Bay. It’s a rivalry steeped in history, the passion of which often surpasses that of the Leafs/Canadiens battles, and likely even those heated Yankess/Red Sox matchups. And tonight should prove to be an extra thrilling instalment. 


Lucky, lucky Jets

 How lucky are the Jets? As they scuttle around simultaneously winning and losing games you think they possibly couldn’t, their division rivals are dropping like flies. With every rivals’ torn groin, broken wrist and damaged MCL, the Jets find themselves in increasingly better shape to make some noise in the this shortened season.


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.

Interview with a Jets Ticket Holder

    I’ve been an avid member of JetsNation since 1979, when both the NHL Jets and I were born. It was a good year all around. I grew up a die-hard Jets fan. For Halloween, I went out in my Hockey gear as whatever Jet I was currently obsessed with. All I wanted for…


Best Jets of All Time

    Don’t get me wrong – I love the Jets. But something is a little off. You see, when you look at the History of the new Jets, you’ll see the leading scorer in franchise history is Ilya Kovalchuk, with none other than the immortal Vyacheslav Kozlov in second place, some 199 points back….
