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.

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.
