Quick hit with more to come today, but sources are telling me there is a HUGE amount of interest in Dustin Byfuglien today and that we should also keep our eyes open for news on the Iginla front... On Iginla... I am amazed by how many people continue to tell me the Iginla situation is too complicated and he likely won't get moved because, "No one wants to be the bad...

Chris Thorburn Not Happy With Colton Orr

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, Thorburn, however, is beloved in the Jets dressing room for his willingness to stand up for teammates. So when Orr slighted him near the end of what until then had been an honourable exchange, the rest of the Jets took notice. With less than three minutes expired in the game, the two big men engaged. Orr's jersey came...

Peter Tessier: Jets Win! Regression Started? Post Game Videos

Mike Augello: Leafs Wanting In Winnipeg; The #FreeJakeGardiner Flap

The Maple Leafs put forth their worst performance of the 2013 season as Blake Wheeler scored two goals and ex-Leafs Nik Antropov and Kyle Wellwood combined for five points in the Jets 5-2 victory over Toronto at the MTS Center in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Follow Pete on Twitter HERE There is no denying that things are starting to shake up a bit with the Jets. The trade of Mahacek to the Columbus system and now word from the great guy at Arctic Ice Hockey that Arturs Kulda is coming back from the KHL to join the Jets. For some that is a more than a welcome relief, even in theory, from the recent work of Grant Clitsome. But...

Epic heavyweight tilt between Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn

Early in the first period of the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on Tuesday night, Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn got into it.  This was a true heavyweight tilt with Orr weighing in at 6’3″ 222 lbs and Thorburn checking in at 6’3″ 230 lbs.  Thorburn did a good job of keeping Orr at bay early, but once Orr was able to wriggle his arm free by getting his sleeve off...

The Winnipeg Jets Are A Hard Team To Figure Out

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, Winnipeg has been outscored (16-23) in the first, but they tend to even it up (24-17) in the second. That's when things get interesting. The Jets have given up 32 third-period goals, the fourth-worst mark in the league, while scoring 20. But send them to overtime and they'll do an about-face: they're a perfect 3-0, behind...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Suffering three straight losses

When I heard that the Toronto Maple Leafs lost a thriller to Pittsburgh in a shoot out, I was quite pleased that they got at least one point.  After all, their next opponent would be the Winnipeg Jets.  A team that has been struggling lately.
