Something to Watch: The Jets at The World Hockey Championship

Watching playoff hockey is great, but it isn’t the same when your team isn’t involved. For the fifth time in six years since arriving from Atlanta, the Jets 2.0 were sent home at the end of the regular season and Winnipeg was left without playoff hockey. Okay, so now what? Jump on a playoff bandwagon?…

Future Free Agents: Brian Boyle

Brian Boyle was acquired by the Toronto Maple Leafs for a pretty hefty price at this year’s trade deadline. He said at the end of the team’s season that he would be open to returning to Toronto, but as a 32-year-old, it’s also likely going to be Boyle’s final chance to make a big payday…

Here Are All 36 Goals From Patrik Laine’s Spectacular Rookie Season

It was a frustrating season in Winnipeg, there’s no doubt about that. This Jets team was one that was expected to contend in the Western Conference after a disappointing 2015-16, but it didn’t happen. But if there was one major bright spot this year, it’s Patrik Laine, who had a better rookie season than anybody…

Future Free Agents: Alexander Radulov

The narrative surrounding Alexander Radulov has completely flipped in the past year. When he was inked by the Montreal Canadiens to a one-year, $5.75 million deal on the first day of free agency last summer, not long after the team had pulled off a massively polarizing swap of P.K. Subban for Shea Weber, it was met…

Future Free Agents: Ryan Miller

When the Vancouver Canucks signed Ryan Miller back in July 2014, it was surely a move that was expected to make the club competitive. But things didn’t work out that way. Miller was solid for the Canucks, save for an injury-riddled 2014-15 season, but the team only made one playoff appearance during his three years…

Possible trade targets for the Jets’ hole on left defence

Last weekend, I looked at this summer’s free agent market to see whether or not there could be a possible solution to the gaping hole the Jets have on the left side of their blue line. The list wasn’t particularly inspiring. I concluded that if the Jets were going to acquire a left-handed defenceman that…

The Jets need a left-shot defenceman; can they find one in Free Agency?

Well, that was a dissapointing season. Entering the 2016-2017 season, optimism and excitement surrounded the Jets, but soon faded as the Jets returned to their usual ways. Poor goaltending, bad deployment and systems, and, perhaps most importantly, injury issues and poor depth on the blue line led to another frustrating year in Winnipeg. In fact,…

Future Free Agents: Nick Bonino

Before the Penguins’ 2016 Stanley Cup run, Nick Bonino was largely known as a guy who seems to be thrown into big trades. In 2014, the Canucks acquired him from the Ducks in a deal for Ryan Kesler. A year later, he was moved by the Canucks to the Penguins for Brandon Sutter. But after…

Dustin Byfuglien injured, Brenden Kichton Recalled from Moose

According to Sara Orlesky, the Winnipeg Jets have recalled Brenden Kichton from Manitoba of the AHL on an emergency basis, and have moved Brandon Tanev from an emergency recall to a regular one, meaning he’ll be added to the 23-man roster. Though he hasn’t been placed on the injured reserve, it’s assumed Kichton was added to…

Future Free Agents: Michael Del Zotto

Michael Del Zotto? In New York, he was known as DelZaster. After last season, his second year in Philadelphia, it seemed he had resurrected his career and was going to be a key piece of the Flyers blue line moving forward. But thanks to a poor season that began with a long term injured reserve…

Future Free Agents: T.J. Oshie

There’s a reason the Washington Capitals went all in at the trade deadline earlier this month. With the acquisition of Kevin Shattenkirk, likely this year’s biggest rental prize available, the Caps immediately became Stanley Cup favourites — if they weren’t already. Why the urgency? This summer, their window to win with the current group they’ve…
