Im here. Wow... 3 games in, one win on the year and yeah... id guess this would be your comment.  Cheesy Isn't it so exciting to win a game? Yes Jets deserved that win. Im worried about big picture though. Oilers have a lot of work to do! But Ok, so remember you started it as usual... no whining later on!

I go to New Years Eve game in E town!

Whining about what later?

saw a few pics of this tremendously large Sturgeon (think that's what it was ID'd as) that Hendricks & Buff landed on their off day in B.C.
........scratching my head at what Buff's lower body issue is, if he can be out landing or helping to land that giant of a fish

I read an article today that shows since 2011-12, the Jets have a .909 save% with Buff on the ice and .924 with him off.  There's only 2 D-men with a worse differential in the entire NHL, with a sample size of at least 2000 shots.   

I'm pretty sure Buff is currently a healthy scratch.

I think what Wheeler said after the game was very telling.
"We all bought in this evening and won the game."

There is pressure on Buff now to buy into the system
or else, in my opinion.

An excellent article and a really good resource to get into the minds of pro athletes. Love this one by #55. Thanks for sharing!

Either way, he seems to be enjoying the BC part of the trip...

He's on a $7.6M deal that takes him to the age of 36... or else what?

Big contract. Somebody would have to really like him and we'd have to take one back.

Or else nothing. He has a soft tissue injury which is keeping him from playing. For some reason, though, fans here think there's some conspiracy afoot because he and a teammate went fishing.

I can't see any team entertaining a trade for that massive contract, either.

Troy Westwood suggested he's been a healthy scratch.  Hustler is assuming the same thing if you listen to his show.

I don't listen to either. They're both lousy and unqualified.

Hard to say on this one. If Maurice wanted to sit him down, it's a heck of a lot easier to say he's got a soft tissue injury then it would be to publicly bench him. It's probably most importantly better for Buff to do that, because he hates the media at the best of times and now won't be mobbed by interviewers asking why he isn't playing well, if he's out of shape, what he thinks about being a healthy scratch, ect.

There are a lot of reasons why Maurice would go this route, if, and that's a big if, he wanted to sit him. There's no question that Buff can be a rover out there and for a team trying to nail down consistency with their systems, it must be tough to do it with him on the ice.
