What a stinker.  Myers.. needs to find his mojo.


I do like the fact that we came back.  The disallowed goal by Ehlers could have really been a huge lift..

Lets not have any more of the Keystone Kops D zone work please.

Winnipeg Jets PR@WpgJetsPR

TRANSACTION: The Winnipeg Jets have claimed F - Marko Dano off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche and assigned him to the Manitoba Moose.


Great pickup.  Who knows what a little change of scenery can do for a player...  maybe he will fare better here than his last team...

It's like we loaned him to Colorado for a month. Ha.

I guess he can be considered as a replacement for Vesalainen after he returned to Finland.

Laine with his sixth in three games. Solid opening period aside from Chiarot's two awful penalties.

And then they totally collapsed in the third period.

This team really excels at finding ways to play below its collective potential.

Wow... leads the league in goals, yet more than 25% of his goals came in one game.  And he is a -2.

Have to say, pretty impressive if he can keep it up. On pace for 70 goals, and 12 mil a year for 8 years...

And to nobody's surprise, he's the first star of the week.

Unreal week by #29.

Lol 100% that's me and I will give him credit for his little hot streak right now. 

I do still think overall hes a terrible player that just has an amazing shot going for him tho.

Don't be conceited and make it about you. It's every clown critic out there who's never laced up a pair of skates but all claim to know better than actual players and experts involved in the NHL.

Saying he's overall a terrible player is just nonsense and really speaks to a glaring lack of knowledge.

Oh yeah? Please teach me what exactly he does outside of having a great shot?

Wow... really?  You obviously don't watch many games... no doubt he is primarily a sniper with huge PP production.  But he is capable of handling other duties, and is improving those abilities as well.  His shift this year to being leaner seems to have affected him early, but he seems to be finding his stride now and scoring 5 on 5 as well as PP.

Why bother? It's like talking to a Leafs fanboy. You're blinded by a childish, hateful bias and there's nothing to gain by discussing it.

First, you whined about him not doing enough in the playoffs. Then you whined about his slow start this season and claimed he should be traded. Just pathetic commentary on your part.

He does exactly what's expected of him: score goals. He'll round out his game as he continues to play in the NHL. It's not some "little hot streak" and to suggest he's a terrible player is simply asinine.
