  1. Hitch system might just work. He will get them to bore the other team to death for 3/4 of the game and then rely on the PP and McDavid magic to win games 2-1.
  2. Poor Mclellan, he looked like a prisoner of war by the end of his stint there..lost lots of weight and aged about 15 years. I wonder if Hitch will come out looking like a toothpick before he gets canned... Before Coil Near the end of Coil

    i agree with you Rog....he looked solid out there. Especially compared to Leipsic. Leipsic is like one of those wind up toys that generates a lot of noise and appendage movement...but at the end it just falls over. It was almost refreshing to see Gagner not constantly turn over pucks and constantly have the play die on his stick....but the comparison bar (Leipsic) is admittedly quite low... The other noticeable thing...the best zone time shifts in the Winnipeg end were the result of the D making wise decisions with the puck. 9/10 times they dump it in, or if they get a pass back they launch a muffin towards the goalies crest. There were a few times though, a tanev shift in particular, where the D kept the play alive by passing it to forwards instead of killing the play...they kept the cycle going and held the line....hopefully this is something Hughes and Juolevi can really help the team with in the future.

    I think I rank the jets ahead of the lames because no fan base hates our city or team more than the lames’.. have a quick visit to calgary puck lol..also jets are missing the weasel factor of tkachpuke .. it’s all subjective though...

    I still think monahan. Although your comparison is interesting. Laine has a better shot and is bigger. Lol. monahan gets spoon fed by JG time after time

    Rather see the jets do well than the coil, lames or laffs. Growing pains.. Winnipeg was not very good for a good number of years , no outright bottom finishes but good drafting and a lotto win really helped them.( ie they really didn’t have to outright tank) canucks will do ok. March and January feature an inordinate amount of home games. Couple that with a healthier roster and they will be better than they have shown during this brutal stretch.
  7. what a weasel he is...he was trying to rough up Draisaitl but when Kassian went after him he turtled. Same with Baklund...toughest guy on the ice if he is picking on a non fighter...
  8. They need reliable bottom pair dmen. How is sautner looking ? What would it cost in a trade? Please no more mdz
  9. gaudette with his first.. ep back on the scoresheet.

    The state of the D and the lack of depth goes back to the Gillis era IMHO. Benning inherited young players like Tanev and Hutton, but the blue line cupboards were pretty bare - thats affecting the team to this day. If a top 4 d man goes down we get Pouliot and/or MDZ playing over their heads. Benning has taken a few swipes at fixing the D. There was the Gudbranson trade that cost relatively high assets, but other than that the UFAs he has brought in and the guys he has traded for (Pouliot) were low currency moves. IMHO Pouliot (traded for a 4th round pick and Pedan) was worth the gamble. Pouliot was a high draft pick that used to play for Green, it was a strategic gamble that they could rejuvenate him. Basically we have seen a series of filler moves while their prospects develop. Its painful and we are probably a year or two away from having a stable d core that has some depth. Once the team is on the upswing UFAs will want to play here, so they could bolster the d core via the UFA market. What would the alternative have been? Benning could have gone down the same path Calgary did and paid market value for top 4 d. Would anyone here be happy if he coughed up a first rounder and two second rounders while missing out on Boeser or Pettersson for a Hamonic/Hamilton calibre player? Would anyone be happy if he traded a guy like Bo plus pick(s) for a top pair D man? Would they be any further ahead? We are going to have to tolerate the pain for another year or two IMHO.

    where is this lack of goalie depth talk coming from? our two starters might not be stellar NHL goaltenders but how many nhl calibre goalies does one need in an organization? 4? look at Calgary, their starter is blowing games every other night..lol...
