Title: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2021/2022 Season
Post by: ModAdmin on September 21, 2021, 01:56:27 AM
With the NHL pre-season scheduled to start September 25, 2021 and the regular season scheduled to start October 12, 2021, we will again be phasing out the 2020/2021 season thread at the start of the pre-season schedule September 25th.

This thread should be used for the 2021/2022 season going forward.

We will leave the 2020/2021 season discussion up until September 25th when it will be retired.  Thanks for your cooperation.  Go Jets!

With big offseason acquisitions on D and our best players in their prime, I have to say my expectations are high. This feels like "all in". I'm hoping for a fun regular season filled with the typical highs and lows roller coaster of emotions followed by a deep playoff run in the spring. Should be a lot of fun.

The walleye's were biting pretty good all weekend, so I passed on the game.

My son went instead. Said it was the same as the first bomber game, just a lot less people. Line ups to get in. Had to show is vaccine card, and drives license. Said he felt much saver at the Bomber games.

Sounds like Riley Nash will center the Jets 4th line. I was hoping to see him play with AL17 and AC9. Moe says the 4th. line needs to create there own identity.


Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2021/2022 Season
Post by: Pigskin on September 29, 2021, 10:21:05 PM
Sounds like the top three lines to start the season will be, 81/55/26.  9/80/27.   25/17/93.  The fight is one for the 4th. line spots. But then again Moe loves to mix things up.

Post by: Pigskin on September 30, 2021, 02:40:34 AM
Harkin, Svechnikov, and Poganski, all played very well tonight. D was solid. Helli looking good also.

Nice to KC81 hasn't lost his scoring touch.

Interesting that Stast is demoted in favour of Copp but I understand wanting to give Copper the opportunity on his one year deal while Stastny is in his sunset years. It will hopefully result in more goals for both lines, although I really loved the grit of that third line with Lowry and Copp together as well as Appleton, and thought Harkins would have moved into Appleton's spot quite nicely. At the same time, happy to see Vesa get his NHL shot on a scoring line, as he would be useless on a fourth line role whereas Harkins may very well excel.

I expect Nash, Harkins and probably Toninato to be our fourth line to start.

Have been to TC just twice, watched all games, and am really excited about this Svechnikov. He really is skilled, very aware of the hustle and bustle around him and seems to make good decisions offensively and while defending.
He is the brother of Andre of the Hurricanes, who himself is an above average player

According to the  Jets site, 11 players have been assigned to the Moose, including goalies Berdin and Holm.

https://www.nhl.com/jets/news/jets-reduce-training-camp-roster-by-11-players/c-326566324

Does this mean the Jets are happy with Comrie as our backup, or are we planning to bring in another veteran ?

It's been long confirmed that Comrie is the back up. We can't afford to bring in anyone else.

It would make more sense to put PS25 in the middle of 81/26. However on CJOB there was a report that CP91 has been skating with 81/26 and mite be between them for the season opener.

I'm more inclined to believe that's strictly a developmental move.

Though PM would be remiss to not try out all the combinations he could.

Perfetti centreing Wheeler and Connor would be ridiculous, but could be amazing.  It will be cool to see in a preseason game if he has the tools to handle that spot.  No doubt PauMo wants to see every combination in his tool bag before the preseason is over...

Good game tonight. NE27 looks like he's going to have another good year. Really flying tonight.

Jets also have a very solid D this year. Nice group to watch.



Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2021/2022 Season
Post by: PloenFan on October 07, 2021, 04:50:07 PM
Great game by Ehlers (2 goals on seven shots).
All six defencemen had shots on goal, and just under half our shots (17 of 40) were by defencemen.
Nice to see us throw some hits (four by Dillon, three by Harkins, two each by Nash and Lawry).
A bit disappointing that Helle let in two goals on only 18 shots, but it looks as if he may have been partially screened on the first and the second may have been a deflection.


Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2021/2022 Season
Post by: Pigskin on October 08, 2021, 03:15:05 PM
A little debate today at my Doctor's office. Is NE27 the best draft choice the 2.0 Winnipeg Jets have made?

Still only 25, and coming off his best year in the NHL. We also have him for another 3 years after this year.


MS55 is another great draft choice. Now 28 and has another 2 years on his current deal.


Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2021/2022 Season
Post by: drahgon on October 08, 2021, 03:27:25 PM
IMO KC81 edges out NE27 as he is consistently on the top line and the #1 pp unit. He is also signed to a long term deal. That being said, NE27 is my current favorite player!

KC81 is another great pick. I guess you could throw JM44 in that pile. So would you go:

1- KC81
2- MS55
3- NE27
4- JM44


Maybe we should do a top 5.

Can't forget about CH37...

Tough to rank with the different positions but here's a go:

1-KC81
2-MS55
3-CH37
4-NE27
5-JM44

honorable mentions also for AL17 and AC9

Post by: Pigskin on October 08, 2021, 05:06:17 PM

A bit concerned that Bucky allowed three goals on 23 shots, for an .870 save percentage.
Is it possible he's still feeling the effects of his COVID bout in August ?
Hopefully he'll be back to his old self soon.

NE27 injured twice in the game is more of a concern to me then CH37 play. Most of the goals scored on him are due to weak play in front of our net.

Post by: Jockitch on October 09, 2021, 08:26:40 PM
Agree that the health of Ehlers, going forward, is huge

Definitely the early reviews are that our team, with a couple of adds on D., should be capable of
playing keep-away more and cutting down on great opposition chances.

My question, from watching pre-season & former seasons ?? Is Copp really a 2nd line player
I?m a fan as an overall contributor but don?t see him as a real offensive asset for all his ice time
Really hope he can help Dubois and Ehlers get to 70+ points each

On Cap Friendly they show only 12 fwds listed and that includes Scheif who is suspended tonight & perfetti who makes his NHL debut.
Thinking Svechnikov gets in tonight ........ unless someone has heard other.
Also if Ehlers is still to hurt to go ....... does Gustafson or Reichel play           Course the Jets could go with 11 fwds & 7 D .............. or NOT !!

The whole team mostly stunk last night and even when they had some solid chances, Gibson shut the door.

Just burn the tape and move on. Scheifele will be back on Saturday and that'll hopefully get the Jets on the right track in San Jose.

I mostly agree with you.

I don't watch CFB unless there's a narrative that drives me towards it (Joe Burrow's National Championship run on the way to be the Bengals #1 pick), and definitely wouldn't watch random baseball over the Jets, but it is a busy sports season and the Jets at the beginning of their season (especially when they play poorly) are just less impactful.

So, after two bad games who do you want to see take over as head coach? You consistently crap on the guy but never offer an alternative as to who will "better" this team.

Bottom line is the players on the ice have to actually execute whatever system's in place. We've seen them buy in before but they haven't really through two games this season. It's hard to fault just the coach when the majority of the players aren't doing what they're supposed to do.

I really liked the energy and hustle that the line of 12/17/93 had late in the 3rd. on Saturday Night. 12 needs more then a few minutes a game.  Wasn't really impressed with 81/55/26.

Dillon throwing some big hits was a plus and nice to see. Stanley's fight was something they need in the Ducks game. Can't let team push around our skill players.

BW26 17 games away from 1000. 808 points. It would be great if game 1000 was in Winnipeg, but now it doesn't look like that will happen.

He has three years left on his contract, which is the equivalent of 246 games (less the two he's played so far this season for 244). How many games he'll miss remains to be seen but he needs 192 points to hit the 1000 milestone. As a Jet, he's got a .92 PPG average, which would pan out to a 224 points at that pace, putting him well over 1000 career points. I doubt he maintains that PPG pace but 192 points over three full seasons is only 64 points per season or .78 PPG.

There are other factors to consider such as injuries, decline in performance, deployment down the lineup/less TOI, etc. but it's not at all unrealistic to see him getting 1000 points before his contract is up.

Post by: blue_gold_84 on October 20, 2021, 01:18:03 PM
The Jets' defensive zone play continues to be an issue - by and large - through three games so far. We've seen this team commit to playing solid from their zone out, but that's been lost on the players recently (both last season and to start this one) and doesn't seem to be improving. Special teams are a mess and it seems like a lot of experimentation in these few games played. The fundamentals are not there and that's evidenced by their record and several other key stats.

I get the whole puck luck thing not going the Jets' way last night but that seemed to stem from poor play without the puck, questionable positioning in every zone, and lousy puck movement. That tying goal by the Wild late in the third was a microcosm on those glaring issues, IMO.

Let's say Maurice is on the chopping block. Who takes over for him? One of the current assistant coaches? Does Morrison get promoted from the Moose? Or hire an outsider? Boudreau, Julien, Tortorella, Bylsma, and Carlyle are a handful of available options. Are any of them the answer, though? Or does this losing skid speak to a larger issue within the organization? And if so, how much blame falls at the feet of the GM?

Post by: blue_or_die on October 20, 2021, 01:28:32 PM
It looks to my untrained eye that we have a very talented group that has little cohesion or chemistry. Some of that can be attributed to having players missing and then shifting players around the lineup (Wheeler this game, Scheif in game 1), new young players (Perfetti, Ves, Harkins), and new vet players (Dillon, Schmidt, Nash). The good news is that they can form that cohesion and get better play over time. I realize it's not acceptable to waste half a season while this group finds its groove but a few games is ok.

IMO this loss was considerably different than the first two trash games. This one had the emotion and the scoring touch but clearly there's work to be done.

The flukey goal off Morrissey's skate, the flukey tying goal at the end, and the chintzy offside no-goal challenge ultimately were the difference in why we lost.

Our fourth line to this point isn't as strong as our 4th. line last year. Our 4th. line last year with Lewis, Thompson, and MP85, could be used for PK and shut down late in games.

After AC9 and AL17, not much there for PK yet. Another pairing will have to step up. Nash and ?? This is an area where App's was really starting to shine for us.

PP was moving the puck well most of the night. 80/55/81, looked good together. Missing that big cannon from PL29.

Our PK and 5on5 puck clearing has been abysmal.

All we can do is hope that this is due to some new cast member and that everyone will learn to play more cohesively together.

But, honestly, we've retained our core pieces for a long time and shouldn't be having these issues against teams playing rookies in top-6 roles.

He was offside by a razor thin margin and the EN goal getting called back didn't lose the game. It was still 5-4 after that. Did you even watch the game?

Got a free-bee so was cheering long & loud ........ especially when the Jets scored or HellB made a great save, which there certainly were a few.

Pound for pound Pionk battles hard, Conman is sooooo quick, Svech & Dub80 look compatible with Conman
 Ehlers is a bit lost out there with Stats & a snake bitten so far ..... hope he gets paired with Sceif55
Like Dillon & Beaulieu but more surprised how slow they can be compared to TC action.
Vesal (sure has abilities), Dub80 & Stastny used their sticks well for deflections,
Schmidt is very skilled & fast but would like to see him move the puck up the ice ...... as his history shows he rarely records Hits

The Preds sure worked the puck & showed, IMO, how weak our boys can be on the boards defensively

Comrie with a good game.

Jets with a very good 3rd. period.

They mite stay together, and they did look good for the last 10 minutes of the 3rd. But we all know Moe does keep lines together very long.

Probably will see 9/55/26 together. 71 has played better then 93 and 12 to this point, so if he's not with 80/81. I guess he will be back on the third line with 17 and 25.

Should have been a clean win but I'll take the two points.

Dubois is exactly who we wanted and expected last year. Can't wait to sign him to a long term deal.

Connor is one of the best skaters I've ever seen.

Comrie is doing all we can ask from him and is providing great value-for-dollar. We only play him when we absolutely need to and so we can expect to win on nights where he plays. Happy for him since he's been in our system since he was a teenager and we all thought he was done, so good for him.

I expect Dallas to go into full rebuild mode after this year. Benn and Seguin aren't scaring anyone anymore, and Holtby is a shadow of his formal self, which are good traits for a division rival.

Nice to see the Dubois and Morrissey critics have crawled back into their holes.

Comrie looks fantastic with the big boys so far. He seems comfortable and confident between the pipes, which bodes well looking ahead.

Dicey third period and it sucks to give a division rival a loser point but I'll take the SO win. Connor and Scheifele both potted beautiful goals.

If the game is not unfolding with Scheif & Wheels strong with Lowry that I will bet Ehlers will be with them 1/2 way thru the game.
With Stastny out then Lowry with Copp, still at centre, & Harkins will result  ....... personally that should be a strong trio

Very good game by Helli.

Not our best game, but I will take the OT win.

Lines all over the map. Not a fan of that.

Nice to see Ms55 finally score.

DD2 first goal in 4 seasons???

Bit of a snoozer on Saturday, especially the middle frame and most of the third but it was good to be back at the phone booth and see those HC jerseys in person again.

DeMelo getting his first as a Jet (and first in 132 games, IIRC) in such entertaining fashion was great, as well as seeing Scheifele pot his first of the season and the OT winner. That was a beauty feed from Ehlers.

Nah, phone booth suits it just fine. Its original name when it opened was the MTS Centre and that nickname is good reminder of the history of the venue. Also, I think the nickname also has something to do with the tighter confines of the facility (concourses, etc.) compared to other NHL venues but I can't accurately recall.

I prefer The Hangar. References the team's name (which is cool) instead of the transient corporate sponsorships (which are not cool). I kinda liked "phonebooth" when it was MTS Centre and understand the nostalgic factor, though.

For IGF I think a cool nickname would be The Bomb Shelter.

Phone Booth is an appropriate descriptor for the facility, granted, and the main reason I will never darken their halls again. 

Hangar makes more sense... not sure if there is a reference applicable to a life insurance company.

A 5-on-3 that only happened because of Divesaitl. That was a garbage penalty and should've been offset by embellishment.

Better team won last night in pretty convincing fashion. Rematch tomorrow should be a gooder.

We are really humming now. Most enjoyable game of the season by far IMO.

Rematch tomorrow should be EPIC. Winning again, two days later, on the road, would be an absolute statement. And hey, go ahead and pick up two against the Canucks the next night on Friday in a b2b, too, while you're at it. That would really fill my cup.

Post by: blue_or_die on November 19, 2021, 01:42:16 PM
If this Skinner fella didn't come out of nowhere and play out of his mind, it would have been 2 points easily.

Great game from all phases of the Jets, especially Helle. I just love how hard we play the Oilers. I wasn't old enough to appreciate it at the time but I imagine this reminds older fans of the 80s rivalry the old Jets had with Edmonton. It would be spectacular if we both made it out of our divisions and played each other in a conference final.

I disagree, the PP moved the puck well last night, but 4 on 3 for 3:30 in the OT, have to score. The PP has to find a way to score some goals.

Looking for Dobby to have a big game.

Yeah, I'm mad about that loser point game because we could have won outright given our play but got derailed by a stellar backup goalie performance, and I'm even more mad at the two game following because we got what we deserved which was to not get a point in either!  >:(

I like the idea of Hextall calling games, but I think she might need some time in the minors working on her delivery... she has a lot of terminology to work on, but she does bring some of the player aspect into the calls, you can see that.  Long term, she might work out, but right now, she's not ready for the big leagues. 

That said, I was happy I PVR'd the game and fast forwarded through most of it... not a great game for her to showcase her talents.

This is sort of the natural order of things. I always view Maurice's line blenders as ways to shake their focus back and once they're ready he tends to put them back with their 'natural linemates'. How often do we see line juggling that results in a permanent shift? Hardly ever.

I thought NE27 didn't have his best game tonight.

What's PL80 doing back near the blue line on the PP. That big body needs to be in front of the net.

SOG don't tell much of a story, IMO. How many of those were perimeter shots?

The powerplay was atrocious. Puck possession was sketchy. Passing was off most of the night.

Losing to a team in win never mode is a bad look, especially after capping off that ugly road trip with a win and then returning home to take a dump on the ice.

Pretty much the same top 9 as last year, minus Apples. Puck just not going into the net.

Lot's of shots last night. The one shift by 81/55/26 was great to watch. 5 on 5 and it looked like a PP.

55/26 look like there both skating much better. A little more jump with 81 on there line.

I think we need 27/80/25 together. put 9 back with 17/71.
