On the day that Canada Post unveiled a few Winnipeg Jets commemorative stamps - yeah, they still make stamps and apparently we should care - the Jets absolutely mailed it in tonight in a 5-2 loss to the Florida Panthers where they looked listless at best and sloppy at worst.

The Winnipeg Jets return home from their longest road trip this year a little bruised, but with a respectable 8 of 14 points in the proverbial bag - as good or if not better than most pundits would have wagered.
If the last three games showed anything (and apologies for not updating after each of ‘em - work/family stuff got in the way), it’s that the Jets still don’t really...
The Winnipeg Jets have activated goaltender Chris Mason from injured reserve.
Tonightâs game against the Florida Panthers places two teams with different directions of momentum against the each other. Florida visits Winnipeg coming off a 5-1 victory over the Leafs while Winnipeg has limped home after giving up another lead and falling apart in the third period, again.

Since the beginning of the year, Don Cherry has been ridiculed, thrown under the bus, and publically lynched him for speaking his mind on his segment âCoaches Cornerâ. It has gotten to the point where people are looking for ANYTHING to throw back into his face.
Recently, Don Cherry declined a honourary degree from The Royal Military College of Canada, due to at least...
