Both captain Andrew Ladd and right-winger Blake Wheeler, who had his second straight two-goal game, made it clear something's got to change. Ladd, asked if something drastic needs to happen after the Jets lost all three games at the MTS Centre last week -- gaining only one point from a shootout loss to Colorado on Thursday -- said this: "I don't know.

Visualizing Corsi and the Jets

I read a good post today at Arctic Hockey by Tim Bonnar, talking about what he perceives as being the problem with the Jets.
