Jets Too Silent at Trade Deadline

Winnipeg Jets fans should remember why their team left in the first place in 1996. It was because the management couldn't put together a team that could compete on a regular basis.  They wouldn't put together the team. The didn't put together the team.

‘Death By Firing Squad’ Hockey Postgame Celebration Gets Weird

Post-game celebrations of this sort are weird… Scratch that, any type of celebration where players are mimicked to be shot by a firing squad is beyond weird. Check out the below video which features one of the more bizarre team rituals that I have ever seen in any sport. Oddly enough it happened in hockey and from our Russian friends.

Hockey Notes On The First Sunday Of The Season

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, Randy Carlyle will never announce his starting goalie, which prompted this question when he was coaching the Manitoba Moose: “Who’s your backup goalie tonight, coach?” A lot of NHL coaches don’t like the new NHL collective bargaining agreement. Too many rules, too many restrictions, too many off-days, I’m being told. The...

The Honeymooners’ Season Finale

It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that the excitement of the impending return of the NHL to Winnipeg was at a fever pitch – opening night was imminent, and the eyes of the hockey world were turned toward the MTS Centre for opening night puck drop against the Montreal Canadiens. The 5-1 drubbing the Jets endured barely mattered, and the Nik Antropov’s lone Jets goal...

Another visit to Philadelphia, another 60 minutes of hockey spiralling out of control resulting in big numbers on the scoreboard. This time, though, those numbers didn’t work in the Winnipeg Jets’ favour, as they were doubled up 8-4 by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bryan Little scored twice for the Jets, both off nice feeds from Andrew Ladd. Spencer Mahachek played well in just his...

The $4M Grinder

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, Every hockey team has them. Call them the grunts. They are the fourth-liners who toil away from the limelight, content to do their part while others get the glory. Not getting scored against is their top priority, getting down and dirty their M.O.
