Mitch Kasprick is the “Motown Curmudgeon” aka “Motown Mitch”

Odds and Ends, Thoughts and Questions, from this past week in hockey –

Just so there’s no confusion when I’m spewing my bias, I am a fan of the Winnipeg Jets, Arizona Coyotes, Manitoba Moose, Winnipeg Ice, and all Team Canada Hockey teams.

I am NOT a fan of Gary Bettman or as I call him, Count Chocula.  I am a big believer in the 7Ps. You’ve been warned.

 

1. Jets:  Without getting into any in-depth analysis of the Jets’ performance at the 2022 NHL Entry Draft last week, I will say that overall I was pleased with their picks.  The truth of the matter is NOBODY really knows for sure and it will be 2-4 years before we can make a decent evaluation, so until then I won’t bore you with my predictions.  There are predictions and analyses from smarter people than I all over the place and by now I think you’ve probably seen quite a few.  One of our writers (Riley Malinowski), will be posting his thoughts soon.

1. WHC:  Pierre-Luc Dubois and Adam Lowry are playing very well for Team Canada, Nikolaj Ehlers is easily Denmark’s best player and Nate Schmidt is one of Team USA’s steadier defencemen.  Leon Gawanke just joined Team Germany and notched a point in his first game and now all five players representing the Jets have points for their countries.  Not bad.

UPDATE:

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey has been named the team’s nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.  The Masterton Trophy is awarded annually by the National Hockey League to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

The trophy is named in honour of the late Bill Masterton (born in Winnipeg), a Minnesota North Stars player who died on January 15, 1968, after sustaining an injury during a hockey game.

1. Jets:  The Winnipeg Jets had a pretty good week that started off with an impressive 7-4 win at home over the Stanley Cup champs and then they took 2 of 3 on the road.

They finished off their 3-game road trip with an impressive 4-3 overtime victory in St. Louis and now head back home for a stretch of 6 home games in their next seven starts.

The Jets record currently sits at 27-23-10 and they are 4 points behind Vegas for the final wildcard spot BUT most importantly they still sit sixth in the Central Division.  Winnipeg still has to reel in Dallas who are 3 points ahead of them but with 3 games in hand.
