  1. I think one of the most important things to do is get rid of Okposo's contract and maybe one other one. This opens up cap space to bring more talented players on the team. Eichel and Dahin are or are going to be elite players at their respective positions. Cozens will be very good. They need talent to play with and 6m for Okposo is ridiculous. Do what it takes to get rid of him and do it. Not 2020's 1st though. If I could trade Skinner, I would. Even if I had to eat 1.5m of his contract. I doubt JBot deals him seeing as he just re-signed him though.
  2. The Jets have had to play this year with 7.6m less on their cap than other teams because of the Buff situation. Sbisa, Bitetto, and now Niku are all staring D men for us this year and we are a couple of points out of the playoffs and people want Maurice's head...he should get coach of the year for what he has done this year. It is hard to believe I am anxiously awaiting Boolow coming back from injury because he is better than 2 or 3 D men we have playing regularly...Kulikov is our best D man after Morrissey and Pionk this year and he is a 3rd pairing guy. How does Chevy negotiate a settlement where he gives Buff money and sets him free? For nothing in return? Why should he get money? He is suspended for not showing up. Poor deal if you ask me. Lose Buff for nothing but capspace. Love the capspace but this is a sour deal for the Jets. If someone picks him up for a playoff run and he is in shape, watch out. At least the situation is close to over and Chevy will have some cash to play with and see if he can pick up a D man and hopefully a RHD. Buff, Trouba, Myers and Chiarot all gone from last year's D corps replaced with Sbisa and Dahlstrom via waiver wire and Bitetto but let's fire the coach...
  3. True but the top 5 teams in the Pacific have the following points... 58 57 57 57 57
  4. Bogo, Kane and Burmistrov were all rushed into the NHL when they should have done a stint in the AHL. Atlanta was not the definition patience. It took Chevy over 4 seasons to clean up the mess we inherited from the Thrashers. Give Bots another year to see what he can do with some contracts ending and maybe getting rid of one or two more?
  5. A friend of mine from Kentucky that moved to the Yukon via Winnipeg has invited me moose hunting for the 2021 fall season. He said all I have to bring is my clothes and gun. He has his Canadian citizenship and is allowed to do this once in a lifetime as a Canadian citizen of the Yukon and I feel honored that he asked me. This is a trip I didn't ever think I could afford but seeing as he is actuallly my guide, the cost will be minimal. I have enough VISA point that the taxes are under $150.00 for the flight. The biggest expense will getting the de-boned meat home. He got a moose on the 2nd day last fall that measured 49 inches and the year before on the first morning he got a 58 incher! We'll be floating a river in a 14 foot jon boat. The only concern I have is grizzlies but I'm going for it.
  6. He already has. He supposedly got a phone call.
  7. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/jets-perreault-mad-canucks-virtanen-no-suspension Perreault was not too happy. I don't blame him. He has the record for 4 players suspended for infractions against him and this one shouldhave been the 5th. “I got to take matters in my own hand next time this happens and I get to swing my stick across his forehead, and I shouldn’t get suspended then,” added Perreault.
  8. I hate the Preds so I am glad for the turmoil but neither of the goalies are above a .900 sv%. Rinne is over the hill and Saros hasn't shown to be a capable #1 goalie yet. Bad goalies=bad coaches.
  9. He is the one the Canadians tried to not have as a ref for the last game...game 8. I thihnk the other was a Czech.
  10. The same blind ref missed a stick to the face to Ehlers and a hit from behind on Morrissey in the final 5 minutes or so of the Jets/Minny game yesterday. Then, he gave Wheeler a penalty in OT and Minny scored. That ref is almost comical and it makes you wonder how he got hired. He reminds me of some of the refs from the 1972 summit series.
  11. Mittlestadt was probably brought up a season too early but look at the players drafted after him. Not too many that have done much. I wouldn't give up on him yet.
  12. Am I missing something here? Why should the Isles be retiring Westfall's number?
  13. Goring is a Winnipeg native...good on him!!! That Kovalchuk contract is on the cap for another season after thisone. That is 6.25m for a player not even on your roster. When Jets' fans complain about some of the contracts on the team I look around the league and there are some absoultely terrible deals signed. Ladd is making 5.5m on the cap and only 1m for a base salary with the rest signing bonuses. He's playing in the AHL. Some GMs can't help themselves.
  14. He'll bring back a 1st and at least a B prospect at the TD. If they trade him now, it will be more. I can see him playing for the Isles after this season...maybe Nashville? Hey, maybe Dubas gives him deal for 11m x 8 years?
  15. Kane probably gets 3 games but deserves a butt end to the teeth. My opinion anyway...
  16. Great game guys, I love seeing the Leafs lose. Over pay your players and trade your top draft picks so someone takes a player you overpaid...great plan for continued success.
  17. He had the surgery...on his own...told the team he was having it but that's all the team had to do with it from what I've heard.
  18. Rumor has it that Buff is saying his ankle neded surgery from an injury last year although he signed off at the end of last season as being healthy...that is what I heard anyway....it'd be nice to know what he is doing so Chevy can have the 7.6m of caphit if he isn't coming back. People are/were calling for Maurice's head but considering the D corps he has to work with and how well the team has been doing, I'd consider him for coach of the year.
  19. They taped the segment, played it at intermission at three separate (games) times, and then they fired him??? What a crock. Someone at Sportsnet should also be looking for work.
  20. Anyone see Don Cherry's comments about poppies???
  21. Here is what a neurosurgeon had to say about it... Based on the mechanism of injury and the news report, I think he has a cerebral contusion, basically a bruise in the brain.That intracranial injury would be a separate issue from the laceration to the scalp and/or external ear, which required stitches (it’s not important to count the number of stitches exactly, so the estimated number is no surprise), and the ruptured ear drum.Little wouldn’t likely have been kept in hospital unless there was intracranial bleeding (the contusion I’m suspecting he has). A scalp injury and ruptured eardrum wouldn’t require observation.
  22. Anyone hear about this? Little has had some really bad luck with injuries the past few seasons. The Jets season is looking worse each passing day... https://globalnews.ca/news/6137909/winnipeg-jets-bryan-little-suffered-brain-bleed-during-game-hit-to-the-head/
  23. I looked at March and you guys are playing 15 games in 26 days. Playing two games overseas can come back to bite you. I'm not saying it will and I hope it doesn't but if I had a say and choice if my team were going to or not, I would pick not.
