The Jets Approach a Dustin Byfuglien-Sized Crossroads

Embed from Getty Images It’s not hyperbolic to suggest that how the next two months play out could be franchise-altering for the Winnipeg Jets. With quite possibly their two most important players both facing uncertain futures with the organization this summer, what the team looks like in the years to come will surely be shaped by…

The Log Off Podcast: “Is there blood on our hands?”

"I can’t believe the internet hasn’t ran with this meme by now, if I’m being honest" Last time you heard from us, we were openly ridiculing the Winnipeg Jets for the way in which they’ve been handling their business, from management to coaching to player personnel. Well, one of those has seemingly been fixed, with…

The Winnipeg Jets, And Their Impact In Fantasy Hockey Circles

Just because you’re into fantasy hockey doesn’t mean you’re this guy. In case you haven’t heard, the NHL is back.  I’m aware that some people have been put off by the ordeal that dragged on through to January 6th, claiming that they’re not coming back to the game. And while I disagree with those sentiments,…

The Jets’ Amnesty Buyout Options

  For the most part, the lockout has been a complete bore. Forget for a second that we’re being deprived of professional hockey because of it. The coverage itself has been riddled with boring legal and economic mumbo jumbo that most hockey fans didn’t sign up for. At this point, I’m sure most people would simply…

Panic Trading Evander Kane Would Be Hilariously Asinine

Evander Kane is holding a lot of money. But he’s also quite money, himself. On Wednesday morning, Evander Kane took a picture of himself holding what Chemmy from Pension Plan Puppets deduced to be $225,800.

The Top Defensive Pairings In The NHL

  Goals are fun. You know what they say: chicks dig the long-ball bulging of the twine. I’m sure that scoring a goal at the NHL level is one of the funnest things you could possibly do (legally). What’s not quite as glorious – but just as valuable in contributing to the effort of winning…

Zach Bogosian, And His 2008 Draft Compadres

A lot can happen in four years. Every four years we have a leap year, we get to watch the spectacle that is the Winter Olympics, and we’re treated to the World Cup. Four years is also the length of time a running back in the NFL tends to remain relevant.  For these purposes, though,…

Chatting With Jets Prospect Carl Klingberg

  This past week, I wrote about the fact that despite the NHL being locked out, there are things going on that should peak the interest of Jets fans. One of the main attractions that I mentioned are the St.John’s IceCaps, who just kicked off their 2012-13 season.  The team is filled with intriguing Jets…

What Can We Expect from Alex Burmistrov?

  When you’re selected 8th overall, you enter the picture with rather large expectations. In a vacuum, 48 points in 150 career games is not an acceptable scoring rate for an offensively gifted forward. But the problem with that is that you can’t necessarily evaluate what Alex Burmistrov has done thus far in a vacuum, just…
