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

1. Jets:  Well the speculation is over, the Winnipeg Jets have finally hired their head coach but I’m not sure many thought it would be Rick Bowness.  Yes, Rick Bowness, Jets 1.0 Rick Bowness.  I definitely didn’t see this one coming but after a little bit of reflection it makes sense and especially if you believe that Barry Trotz is still in the mix in the future.
