The KW Predators?

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Much talk has been made of the purchase of the Nashville Predators by Research in Motion CEO Jim Balsillie. It appears the team will be transferred to him, and, with it, rumours are in the works for a team to perhaps go to Kitchener-Waterloo. I have been debating this for some time, so I'll retierate a lot of what I thought: Logistically speaking, in that case, it wo...
Why the NHL won’t expand in Canada? Canada is the centre of the hockey world. With over 50% of the NHL’s players coming form Canada, we dominate who plays the game, how the game is played but not where the game is played. Everywhere you go in Canada hockey is the #1 sport and we Canadians are more loyal, knowledgeable, and die hard then any country about any sport. ...
Lets look into this a bit. The Jets had pitiful attendance figures that declined right up until they moved to Phoenix. In their last season, the Jets averaged just over 11,000 fans per game. Generally, Corporate ticket sales make up around 60-70% of total ticket sales, on average. The remaining tickets are ones bought by you and me, Individuals. The Jets were the third ...

Winnipeg and Tim Erixon

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
"Going to Winnipeg!" But how long can it last this time. The Rev takes a harsh look at the reality of keeping hockey afloat in a very small market. Also, the Flames lost a coveted prospect in Tim Erixon, but did they even have a choice in the matter? Come to the Sports Roundup to read more on these two topics. http://www.thesportsroundup.com/2011/06/welcome-to-winnipe...
Mark Scheifele the first ever pick for the new Winnipeg Jets is turning some heads at the under 20 development camp for Team Canada. When being interviewed on 1290 Radio by Hustler and Lawless Ray Ferrero had this to say about the young Centerman. " He has a huge shot an absolute cannon". Ferrero when asked about the forwards chances of making the NHL ferrero has this ...

1 week till takeoff

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Seems like no one is blogging for Winnipeg so figured it is about time. Few things heading into the opener. 1) Schiefle: Will he make the team? The kid has performed greater than anyone could have predicted. I was sure they would send him back to Barrie for one more season and play for Canada at the World Juniors but I am not sure anymore. He has played above and beyond...

No Excuses

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I could do a few things with this blog tonight. I could talk about how turnovers are a hockey teams worst enemy. I could say how Buffalo has been on a hot streak, and were due to lose. I could talk about how certain Buffalo players need to step up in a game like this. I could talk about how Buffalo is completing a pretty long road trip, and that they just si...
In 1988 the Winnipeg Jets selected a young Finnish player named Teemu Selanne with their 10th overall selection. It took a few years for him to come to the NHL, but he finally did in the 92-93 season, and boy, was it worth the wait. Teemu exploded onto the scene, scoring 76 goals and 132 points as a rookie, records that stand to this day, records that may never be broken. ...

Ducks defeat Jets 3-2

Posted Monday | Comments 0
The Anaheim Ducks played their only game in Winnipeg this season. And if these two teams do not meet in the playoffs, then this was Teemu Selanne's last game in the city that he began his career in. This was easily the Ducks best game of the season. They played hard and competed for 60 minutes, and while there were still some issues, if they play like this, they are going...
Last night, the Winnipeg Jets lost another game to Steve Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2. An all too familiar result for the Jets and their fans as they continue to struggle out of the gates this season. This loss however, was especially frustrating as the Jets out-shot outhit and essentially outplayed the Bolts for most of the game. So who's to blame for this unl...
There has been a lot of trade rumors about Evander Kane this season. The Vancouver native became a real problem for the Jets and it was only a matter of time before he’d be shipped off to another team. That team just so happened to be the lowly Buffalo Sabres. Sitting at last place in the NHL, Buffalo is king of the hill when it comes to trade rumors. Their most valuable...
Tonight is the home opener for John Tortorella as the Columbus Blue Jackets take on the Winnipeg Jets. There are a couple of questions surrounding the Jackets tonight after last nights lost to Washington. Are they back to they played at the start of the year? Are there going to be any surprise healthy scratches? Is there really tension between Torts and Ryan Johansen? ...
Back-to-back loses hit the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday, the Jackets lose to the Washington Capitals by a final score 2-1. Last night, they lost to the Winnipeg Jets 3-2. In both games, the Jackets didn't score first, and had to claw back in the game to make it close. In D.C., summer acquisitions Justin Willams and T.J. Oshie scor...

Buuurrr ehh? Columbus is in Manitoba tonight to battle the Winnipeg Jets. Both teams are very similar- youth, non-playoff teams, and plenty of injuries. The Jets have very young stars in all positions- winger Nikolaj Ehlers, defenseman Jacob Trouba, and goalie Connor Hellebuyck. For Columbus, they have center Alex Wennberg, defenseman Ryan Murray, and goalie Joonas Kor...
Sending out an offer sheet for Jacob Trouba has been one of the more polarizing concepts heading into the 2016 edition of NHL Free Agency, due to the steep price as well as possible blowback for exercising a rarely utilized right of NHL execs. Because the Bruins used second and third round picks on Lee Stempniak and JM Liles, the B’s would have to offer Trouba $9.3 milli...
[img]https://jetsnation.ca/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2017/10/usatsi_10319841.jpg[/img] The Winnipeg Jets are a relatively talented hockey team. Their top six forwards have as much finishing talent as any team in the NHL with Patrik Laine, Mark Scheifele, Nikolaj Ehlers, and Kyle Connor. They have the dominant pairing of Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry who can virtually shut...
There is no question that the Winnipeg Jets have been lucky to find themselves in playoff contention given the multiple missing pieces on their blue line. It was no surprise that the big man, Tyler Myers left town in pursuit of a lucrative deal with the Canucks. However, the loss of Dustin Byfuglien was a bit more surprising. Despite having a number of good seasons with...
