Post by: blue_gold_84 on August 16, 2022, 04:04:36 PM
Still technically the off-season but this seemed like good news worth sharing: https://www.nhl.com/jets/news/welcome-to-the-jets-sara-orlesky/c-335286544 (https://www.nhl.com/jets/news/welcome-to-the-jets-sara-orlesky/c-335286544)

Quote

Alex Chiasson, 6'4" 210 vet forward shoots right. Looks like he is still an FA??? Played for 800K last year. This would be an good signing for a 3rd. or 4th line player. He's big and plays with lot of grit.

Jets sign veteran F Gagner: https://www.tsn.ca/winnipeg-jets-sign-sam-gagner-1.1843881

Nice move, IMO. Low risk, reasonably high reward.

Post by: Jockitch on September 02, 2022, 06:15:00 PM
back on August 9th threw Gagner's name out there as a longshot to be signed , which was after I recommended Tyler Motte.
Who knew that Chevy was reading our discussions                                              or NOT  ;D ;D

Anyways, he still has to prove himself each shift but hopefully he provides the team with some savvy.

Basically fills the role Stastny had here but at a lower rate of production and thus, a much lower price. Should be able to fit into the bottom 6 quite nicely.


Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2022/2023 Season
Post by: Jesse on September 02, 2022, 10:46:57 PM
He had 31 points last season, which would have led anyone on our team outside of the top 6, so I think it?s good piece.

Yes, After our top 6 we were not very productive.

KC81- 91 Points.
MS55- 70
PL80- 60
BW26- 60

Personally, as mentioned by others, Motte or Rodriguez might look good at TC.

Sounds like the Jets will have no Captain this year. Bowness will also decided who will be the Alternate captains. New coach, new leadership, I like it.

Wow really? They stripped Wheeler of his captaincy?
If so I love it. I think Blake is more of a foot soldier than a leader.
New Boss is in town I like it as well.

Disagree, as I believe that Wheels did well as Captain, IMHO.  We fans can be tough on players without being in their skates

Will Bowness name 3 or 4 as alternates ?  In essence the former assistant captains were also put on hold

I agree. Wheeler is the closest thing to a captain this franchise has ever seen, and we thank him for his service by demoting him and then saying we are one big family. Wha wha Whaaaat?! Sure Ricky que up sister sledge and sing it for us. What a moron. You make someone captain when they?ve earned it and the respect of the locker room. Sorry, we don?t have 4 ?leaders? in our lineup. We have wheeler and we have sheriffs, and that?s it for leaders. Just look at the way they play and lead on the ice. You don?t need any letters on their jerseys just a pair of eyes to watch how they play. Absolutely ridiculous move, can?t wait for more from the rube we have behind the bench now. We are in for a long long nose dive with this team.

I thought Wheeler sucked.  Then I learned he played with broken ribs, got through Covid, and  a quitter Coach all the while playing with a pouting Shieffle, and still putting up a ton of points.

Cripes what more do you want a guy to do.

Now it's time to put up with that floater Shieffle.  Notice how many times he appeared during televised interviews in the year 2022.


Title: Re: Winnipeg Jets Discussion - 2022/2023 Season
Post by: Jockitch on September 23, 2022, 02:06:11 AM
Enjoyed both first TC  practices . Really felt Wheels led by example in his group. However there definitely was no room for slackers today.
Wheel with PLD and Perfetti were good with the puck in creating close in chances.
Ehlers in the early grouping still looks soooooo sneaky fast ? Yahoo
Bowness, especially, and staff really get into the slapping of their sticks to motivate for tempo.
The tempo is extreme and tongues were hanging in both sessions at their finishes.

Aggressive of note, IMHO, Stanley pinching,  Harkins vs PLD, Stenlund, Reichel, Wheels and Lowry
Good flinish around the net, Perfetti, Gagner, Lambert, Malott, and a few of the usuals

Overall, feeling there will be know shortage of intensity during TC, cuz Bowness and staff are invested

I agree. Wheeler gave his all, then he gets his C taken away from coach newbie, who preaches were all one big family?? What a total joke. I feel sorry for wheeler that he got treated this way, and I feel sorry for jets fans, as the incoming implosion is going to be painful!!!

Nor should he be. The Jets have a lot of work to do if they want to compete for a playoff spot in the gauntlet that is the Central Division.

I hope the team buys in and is up to the challenge.

At practices today, 3rd day of camp watching.   Hustle, hustle always and high tempo of reps on drills.

Dillon and Heinola work very well together.   Toninato & Gagner must be looking over their shoulders as major competition is happening
Maenalanen, Torgesson, Stenlund, Gustafsson certainly impress and Reichel isn't to be ignored either.
Now throw in Morgan Barron, in a Red jersey, put in his first day at camp, in limited drills.

There is a random collection of names I've never heard before that seem to be impressing.

Obviously wont shake up the top lines, but our bottom 6 might have a new look.

A few careless penalties but unfortunately some very iffy calls made by refs going both ways

Though a Perfetti fan, can?t help but think a few players aren?t going to get an opportunity that his reputation may afford him

Chances galore that didn?t make it in but saw some nice skill offensively

Confident in the decisions Bowness and his staff made, overall, in trimming roster down to 23.

Hopefully the injuries are minimal and the blend of skilled players, plugging into the lineup spots, are up to the task.
The Jets need improved bottom 6 skaters finishing around the net. Suggested example, Lowry can't have only 8 assists over the regular season.

 Understand that A Stanley Cup has not been won or lost this week and the long season will have it's rewards.

Agree with all of that.

I feel pretty strongly that we'll have a better season than  last year. The boys seem more committed to the D zone which will help Helle have a strong year.

Bowness needs to run 4 lines and not let the top 2 run the show. His desire to shorten their shift lengths seems to indicate he's making that a priority.

Rangers are playing their third game of the season already while we're still implementing new systems, so might be a slow start to the year, but hoping we can start strong.

A better 200 ft. game is necessary and I think Bowness and his staff have prioritized that. As long as the players buy in, I expect a better season than the last.

Tonight should be a good test, even if the Rangers are playing their third game in four nights.

Go Jets Go!

Connor - Scheifele - Ehlers
Perfetti - Dubois - Wheeler
Barron - Lowry - Appleton
Maenalanen - Gustafsson - Gagner

Morrissey - DeMelo
Dillon - Pionk
Stanley - Schmidt

Hellebuyck gets the start between the pipes.

Well, we don't have more talent than last year.

Any improvements need to come from within. A commitment to both ends, raising Helle's effectiveness, could still win a lot of games.

Dubois is hopefully still on the upswing of his career and Mark should have a much better season than last year.

Perfetti is my ROY pick.

Perfetti is my ROY pick.

No Copp and no Stastny don't help but the top 6 is still pretty formidable, the top line in particular. Gagner helps round out the bottom 6 and I think that third line will work well. On paper, it's an inferior forward group compared to a year ago. How it shakes out on the ice will depend on several factors but it sounds like everyone's on the same page to start the season.

With the new system in place, it'll take time to shake off old habits. But if the team has bought in on what Bowness and co. are trying to sell, I'm hopeful we'll see a team that's more responsible in its own end and better when not in possession of the puck. That should help the back end and the goaltender and in turn lead to fewer high danger scoring chances against.

I think Perfetti has a strong season and I'm excited to see what chemistry he'll have with Dubois and Wheeler.

We got a goal from the 4th line....at the end of the 3rd period...in a tie game.

I tell you, there's a lot of years where they would be no where near the ice in that situation.

Pretty solid performance last night. Hellebuyck was a brick wall in the middle frame.

Gagner's patience on the GWG was huge. And that feed from Dubois to Scheifele to go up 3-1 was awesome.

Fantastic way to kick off the season at home!

Okay would be a compliment, IMO. They're just bland and very forgettable, especially compared to the actual 90s jerseys.

I don't understand what Adidas keeps doing with the colours on the last three alternate jerseys (Aviator, 80s RR, 90s RR). The different blues for each design get washed out, particularly at a distance.

Another swing and a miss if you ask me. Much like the Jets last night.

If this is Bowness, he's past the contagious stage, which is why he was able to return, but he said he was still feeling it when he came back.

The Jets are struggling with their new system and discipline seems to be an issue.

2-3 through five games isn't a good start. And Bowness not being ostensibly anywhere near 100% isn't good, either.

Do we really know the contagious period for certain??  Seems it might be different for each person. 


Winnipeg Jets head coach Rick Bowness, who missed the first four games of the season due to a bout of COVID-19, suffered a dizzy spell during his media availability on Monday, putting his availability for Monday night?s game against the St. Louis Blues into question.

The use of Dmen and four lines (i.e. everyone across the roster) is a marked difference going from PauMau to Bones. I like it, which is hard for me to say because I was such a staunch Maurice supporter.

I haven't looked at ice time stats or anything but I would be shocked if there wasn't greater distribution of that across the roster. Not only is it great to get more players involved in the game plan, but it lets the stars rest more and be sharper and more efficient in their shifts (e.g. Scheif getting 2 goals when the whole game isn't placed on his shoulders).

So, 81/55/27,    91/80/26,   89/17/22, until 36 comes back.   8/19/71???

Apps has played very well so far this season. Also, another guy I am very impressed with is Maenalanen. He works his butt off on every shift.

I love Appleton, but he is a third line player.

The cool thing is, we're are playing 4 line hockey and everyone has more of a role than normal, even the 4th line guys.

Apps is actually such a great third line player. Complements Lowry very well, and Gagner is a great plug-in for the loss of Copp at a bargain price. So yeah, that's all great with me.

Soucy is a turd.

But that worked out for the Jets with Wheeler potting his 300th career goal to tie it up. And then that feed from Morrissey to Scheifele to ice the game in OT... Beauitful.

Jets played pretty loose against a pretty lousy team but they got the win. Hopefully Connor's hatty sparks more goals for him.

Domination until the last few minutes, which was a total meltdown.

Morrissey a hero this season.

Glad it was an eastern opponent (and a good one at that) that we gave a point to. I'd be super upset if we gave away a free point to a Western team and especially a central team.

Jets were up, I think 3-0, and Craig Button says "The Jets could easily be up 5 or 6 nothing".

What's really exciting is the prospect of getting Ehlers back. How good will they be with him in the line up?

Another thing I noticed was that the Jets didn't looked stressed at all. They were gliding all over the ice and made it look easy and effortless against a very good AVs team.

At one point Wheeler flashed a big smile (he never smiles) and you just knew that, man, they were on top of their game.
