I’ve already conceded that the Winnipeg Jets will not make the playoffs but for you optimistic fans out there that still have hope here is what needs to happen.  I call it the race to 52 points.

Random Thoughts On The Winnipeg Jets: Feb. 21

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:  The Winnipeg Jets went 2-2 on their 4-game homestand but probably needed to go 3-1 to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.  Every loss at home just makes the task a lot tougher but this team never does things the easy way. 

The Jets record is currently 22-19-8.  They are still 7 points out of the final wildcard spot and sit sixth in the Central Division.  

There is some good news though, the Jets have closed the gap on Nashville, LA, and Anaheim but they are still 7 points behind Dallas, the team they need to catch.

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:  The Winnipeg Jets got their week off to a good start with a solid, fiesty, 2-0 effort versus the Minnesota Wild at home and then headed on the road for road games in Dallas and Nashville where they snagged 3 of 4 points and I dare say they should have had 4 points. 

The Jets had some tough luck and were chimped by a couple lucky, fluky, chimp bounces that were against the grain of the play. 

 Chimp or chimped ~ Verb/noun

1.  chimp ~ the person/persons with the inadvertent good fortune.
2.  chimped ~ being the victim of fluky, unlucky bounces.

The Jets record improved to 20-17-8 and they are 7 points out of the final wildcard spot BUT still sit in sixth in the Central Division.  Right now getting out of 6th place is the most important goal going forward.

The Winnipeg Jets Should Retool Now

The Winnipeg Jets need to start the retool now and not in the off-season-

In a year that has gone off the rails, it makes sense to me to start the retooling right now. 

Retool ~ Verb

1.  equip with new or adapted tools.
2.  adapt or alter to make them more useful or suitable.

The good guys are currently sitting at 18-17-7 going in the NHL’s All-Star break which puts them 6th in the Central Division and the news gets worse.  The Jets sit 9 points out of the last wildcard position and need to jump over five teams with only fourty games left in the season.  Even the most diehard fan knows there is no way in hell with the way this team is playing from the goaltender out that we will see a Whiteout this season.  Let’s call it what it is, another lost season and move on.  I know, I know the truth hurts but I’m not here to wave pom-poms or blow smoke you know where.

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…]
