- The talent on this Winnipeg Jets team is unbelievable!!!
- It can’t even be debated: “the Jets never miss on a draft pick” Craig Button…the Jets have gotta have the best scouts in the NHL.
- Drafted by the Jets 2.0 (apologies if I miss anyone Geoff…lol) Scheif, Lowry, Morrissey, Trouba, Ehlers, Conner, Roslovic, Laine, Copp, Poolman, Niku, Hellebucyk and next year Christian Vesalinen…and a bumper crop coming from the Moose!!!
- Both Big Buff and Tyler Myers playing great hockey.
- Jets are going to have to get creative to keep this team together…when you have so much talent, everyone is going to want big raises; I’d imagine players like Perrault and Enstrom will be moved, sooner or later, in order to create cap space.
- Against the Habs last night, all 5 goal scorers, Laine, Ehlers, Roslovic, Niku and Conner, were under 22 years old!!
- Jets have played Poolman enough so that if he was needed in the playoffs, he would be just fine.
- Maurice and the brain trust have to figure out a way to keep Roslovic in the lineup; I’d put him in for Armia…like Geoff said this morning, Armia and Matty P seem to be bogging Little down; they need a spark on that line and Jackie boy is the one who could provide that energy.
- Laine in his office…and number 44!!
- My only concern for this team…backup goalie…Mason needs another game before the playoffs.
- Is the TLC line our best line? They smother the other team in their zone and of late have started to produce…Tanev, Lowry and Copp hit everything in sight and are so valuable!!
- First place overall in the NHL is not out of the question; we’re three back of Nashville, with both teams having two games left…Preds play in Washington and are home to Columbus…if they lose both and we win both of our remaining games…President’s Trophy for the Jets!! The way this season has gone, nothing would surprise me.
- Two key factors for a long Jets run in the playoffs: stay healthy and Bucky playing his best!!!
- I can’t even imagine how intense a Jets – Nashville series will be!!
- You can feel the excitement building in the city…and with most of Canada cheering on the Jets, this could be one amazing spring in River City!!
