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. 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.

1. Jets:  The Winnipeg Jets played three games this past week and lost two of them, so it looks like the jig is up.    

The Jets’ record currently sits at 33-27-10 and they are 5 points behind Dallas and 6 points behind Nashville.

1. Jets:  The Winnipeg Jets went 1-2-1 on their 4-game road trip last week and finished the month of February with an underwhelming 5-5-2 record. 

The good guys start off the month with four straight games at home and 10 out 16 in March.    

The Jets record is currently 23-21-9.  They are 6 points behind Dallas for the final wildcard spot and sit sixth in the Central Division. 

The Jets play Montreal on Tuesday and Dallas on Friday.  To say these two games are huge would be a massive understatement.  These two games will could go a long way in determining whether Chevy sells at the deadline.

Today’s thoughts are sponsored by the word ENOUGH!

1. Jets:  The Winnipeg Jets went winless on this road trip, bookending two losses with an overtime loss and a shootout loss.  It’s hard to be overly critical with the effort in most of the games but this team just lacks any type of killer instinct.  They have had multiple chances to extend leads but they let teams hang around and eventually lose.  The Jets record sits at 17-14-7 and they are 3 points out of the last wildcard position.    [Read more…]

1. Jets:  It looks like we should be back to playing hockey this week and the Jets are currently below the playoff line with a record of 14-11-5 after 30 games.  With the postponed games the Jets saved a few man games to injured players like David Gustafsson and Blake Wheeler.  [Read more…]
