Random Thoughts On The Winnipeg Jets: May 23

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.
