If Winnipeg Jets forward Jim Slater could go anywhere this trade deadline, his first choice of a destination wouldn't be anywhere an NHL team plays. Slater wants to visit outer space, he told the crowd at a Jets charity event hosted by a local fire department.

The two teams met for the fourth absurdly entertaining time this season on Tuesday night...
It is not often that a team gets badly outplayed on special teams, runs into an opposing goalie who performed as well as the Winnipeg Jets' Ondrej Pavelec did last night, finds itself staring at three separate one-goal deficits and still wins the hockey game. But that's exactly what the Philadelphia Flyers did in last night's 5-4 win at the MTS Centre.

The Winnipeg Jets find themselves in an unexpected race for a playoff spot, but the consensus amongst the HockeyCentral panel and Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star is that the Jets should stand...
