This just in and hot off the press....

JETS SINK

The D suck, Helle is not good, the forwards to not bother coming into our zone, and PoMo is just pain terrible at pulling levers.

Ans Sawyer is in about the same level as friggin Rod Black as a broadcaster. Nauseating to listen to.

no I am not mad if fact I am in the process of caring less actually. To like how this is going is strange unless you want to tank for Lafie or Byfield.

Depends where you think we are.

If we are rebuilding and have a lot of young guys because we dumped vets because we were underachieving and need to start over (see: 2011-2016 Winnipeg Trashers), then absolutely we need to develop and play young guys through the tough times.

Or are we past that narrative and should be expected to be much more successful?

That said, I don't think we were atrocious last night, as we did a good job creating lots of chances. I don't feel walked over after that game. However, we need to close on those chances and we absolutely did not. I thought the Coyote goals were weak.

Exactly just playing the "young guys need to develop card" year after year is just as bad as repeating that the Bombers don't have issues on Defence. 

Eventually fans may stop paying top NHL prices for a team with AHL quality defensive lines.  We have some really good players on this team who are not "young guys" anymore.

Not sure why Heinola is out again. The kid needs to play. Either play him on the Jets with some growing pains or send him down to the Moose. Sitting him isn?t accomplishing much. Happy for Gustafsson getting the call for tonight?s game. Also, there?s rumblings that things are looking more positive for a Buff return! I sure hope it happens! Imagine the reaction from the crowd he would get if he returns- might  blow the roof off!

10 games and they burn a year of ELC.  Tough to do that, and then send him down... especially in today's world of cap concerns.

My take is that if 33 was in uniform, they send Heinola down.  Until he makes a decision, there area a lot of dominoes in place, including Heinola. 

If they play Heinola 10 games, burn his ELC year, and then Buff comes back...  so in the meantime, he stays witht he club, practices with them, and gets game action in spots, until they HAVE to make the decision..

Crowds are dead as well...compared to a few years ago...I think Toronto makes more noise and certainly many in the States are far louder and lively than what we have here.

Young Ville the Kid draws back into the lineup vs the Isles, with Bitetto out  .......... apparently Little will sit out another
Not calling the line a failure after 8 games, but ..... Copp at a -2, has but a goal, 2 assists & only 8 shots as center for Ehlers a sad -5 & Connor a bad -6.
On the plus side for those 3 ..... Connor leads the team with 33 shots while Ehlers has taken the 2nd most at 27 & Copp wins a slim majority of face offs.
Ehlers & Connor certainly don't feed Copp so if Little draws back in next game ...... I can see him sitting at center instead of Copp ..... unless the 3 have a big game tonight.

HellB needs to be the 1st Star tonight

You would have a point if i was talking about the same players year after year and the same mistakes.

In todays game we will always need to bring in young guys.

IMO and from whats said teams like TO and ED have kinda blowen their load on a few players and have about 3-4 years to get a Cup or have to blow it up.

We on the other hand have more less been bringing up young guys and we are seeing them grow into their game and playing together on a pretty good budget plan.

I think what happened to our D this year is not something that was expected or ever happens to a team inless they have to blow it up and i dont think thats what we were doing....  jus happened that teams were willing to pay lots more for guys like Myers and BC.

I like how our core is pretty much young with good contracts and we have 18 year olds that are in learning and even under some pressure they dont look horrible.

Its super early in the year and i think we played 7 in 10 days or something with travel and came out ok.

HellB was very good but ....... the Isles goalie was the STAR.
Our star skaters were in the minus column ...... Scheif, Wheels, Laine & Morrissey all at  -2.

I really dont think it matters.

Our checking lines did there job.

Our top lines need to score forsure .... But again we had really young guys that held there own and wernt beat on.

We played the better game ....  just need to put the puck in .

We dont look out of place we just need to find the net.

Im not at all worried about this team.....  They are young n hard working ....  The puck will start to go in for these guys. Way to much skill for it not too.

I have to wonder if that snowstorm played a factor. That was unprecedented and did a significant amount of damage.
