The Magic of MTS

You’ve all heard the cliché quotes over the years, “it was like a playoff game” but really it wasn’t. Because frankly – only a playoff game is a playoff game. I don’t know how to describe it any other way. Playoff games are different. I’ve been to fourteen different NHL arena’s and lucky enough to…

Better know a prospect – Paul Postma

Fall 2011 – #4 Winter 2012 – #3 It could easily be argued that Paul Postma is indeed the top prospect in the Winnipeg Jets organization. Young, skilled defensemen quite simply are very hard to come by. The Jets organization are flush with young (ish) talent on the blue line in Winnipeg and that has…

Between a rock and a playoff spot

    So lets be honest about this. Did ANYONE expect to wake up on February 25th and find the Jets in first place in their division? If you were one of those folks then congrats to the eternal optimist in you. I for one never expected a nosedive like the one Washington has performed…

Better Know a Prospect – Carl Klingberg

    Carl Klingberg is a load – 6’3” 205 and only 20 years old. Scouts love numbers like that when you combine them with skill. Factor in that he has 21 points in 24 games in the AHL so far this season and now you have something to work with. Fortunately for Winnipeg they…

Better Know a Prospect – Mark Scheifele Edition

    To the casual hockey fan, Mark Scheifele was a surprise pick last June in Minnesota. Many Jets fans were probably hoping Ryan Strome would fall to 7th and when he didn’t they were most likely thinking Sean Couturier was the probable selection (I know I did). Many experts felt that Winnipeg went “of…

The Norris Division is back!

So the answer is yes, history does repeat itself. As per NHL.com the board of governors must have been in a good mood and actually did something that makes sense. No word yet on how many birdie puts were drained today… Jets new division pending Player Association approval will consist of: Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, St….

Bombers v Lions – You’re my boy blue, you’re my boy…

Yes this is a website dedicated to all things Winnipeg Jets, but the Nation is famous for breaking all the rulz. (see how I tried for street cred with the spelling…that’s for you Wanye!) So on that note we are going to post a GDB in honour of good old our team the mighty Winnipeg…

Madness part Deux? Jets v Flyers

Be honest, October 27th was special, fun, intriguing, a train wreck. It was great drama, a spectacle to be sure. It was not a well played hockey game and guaranteed not to happen again anytime soon. See, coaches are united by one common thread; they want to win 1-0. Sure there is the odd guy…

The Airmiles are building up! Jets v Blue Jackets

  Tonight offers up exhibit “A” as to why Winnipeg is at a bit of a disadvantage schedule wise this season versus the rest of their division. At home Thursday after a monster road trip, then a short return to the road for one game in Columbus. That is followed by a very tough three…

Can Lightning Strike Twice? – Jets v Tampa

  After kicking three field goals again the Flyers on Thursday, will Winnipeg dare get into a shoot-out with the highly skilled Tampa Bay Lightning tonight on HNIC? Based on the way the goalies have been for both teams, they may not have a choice. The over/under line according to Bodog is set at 5.5,…

Broad Street Return – Jets v Flyers

  Tonight the Jets are back in action after a couple of days of playing the Philadelphia Flyers in Philly. Once again the Jets face a team playing the second game of a back to back. Last Saturday they faced the Hurricanes in the same scenario and took it to Carolina. Tonight will be a…
