Who gives a flying Buck...

Wonder what's up and for how long:

Winnipeg Jets say their star defenceman is taking a leave of absence.

Dustin Byfuglien has asked and been granted ?a personal leave of absence from the hockey team.?

Jets? spokesperson Scott Brown said Coach Paul Maurice and GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will address the media later Friday. He would not say how long the leave of absence is for.

More information to come.

I think that is it - doesn't want to put in the grind of camp.  Hope it is nothing serious...

Chevy on the radio this morning wouldn't go into details.

Said, "our thoughts are with him", but also said he and his family are alright.

I was pulling into work so didn't catch the whole thing, but I don't believe he gave a timeline.

With Mitch Marner getting a deal worth $10.893 million per season, how will that impact the Jets for signing deals with Connor and Laine? Ouch is all I can say.

Laine is off to Switzerland to train with a team. Seems like it may be a while before his contract is signed.

From Bob MacKenzie:

Dustin Byfuglien, currently on personal leave from WPG, is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future. I?m not saying Byfuglien is retiring; I?m not saying he?s coming back to play. Only that he?s contemplating his options and there?s no timetable for a decision.


I?ve been thinking it was this or the health of a family member. If his heart isn?t into hockey anymore then maybe it?s better for the team. However, how scary thin/experienced would our D be...Yikes! Wishing him the best.

I think the team will be fine.  Maurice is like O'Shea, and can get good work out of next man up.

Nice thing about Buff retiring?  Frees up enough space to sign Connor and Laine.  And then trade for Ristolainen...

Stick to football, man. There is so much wrong with this comment.

Maybe there is a case to be made with how Laine is being used: https://www.tsn.ca/has-laine-been-unfairly-deployed-by-the-jets-1.1367609
