  1. We've had this in Brandon for a few months now. Really like it. Good pizza and ready in a couple minutes. McDonalds makes you wait longer than these guys. 😃
  2. https://www.capfriendly.com/teams/jets Going by these numbers from capfriendly it will be very tough next season.
  3. And odds are he'll ask for 7-8 million, we'll offer 5-6 million and the arbitrator will meet in the middle at 6 million. And then we lose him to FA after next season for nothing or a meh deadline deal. Even at 6M that will be tough to fit into our salary cap next season with who we have to resign and with Wheeler's contract going up as well. The obvious players to trade for cap relief all have no trade/move clauses or bloated contracts (Buff, Little, Perreault and Kulikov) and are still very useful to the team. Even Brossoit will be due a nice raise next season. Trouba is the one guy we can trade and get good value for since he'd still be rfa. Personally I want to keep him, badly. But unless we could get him on a bridge deal to carry through when Buff's contract is up, I don't think we can afford the longterm deal at 7.5+ he'll surely want. Assuming he wants to even stay here. Hopefully Chevy can glean his intentions in the next month or two during contract talks. If Connor, Laine and Trouba were all done with rfa at the same time then maybe I'd look at the forwards more than Trouba. But we have control of Laine and Connor for a few more seasons. We don't with Trouba. If Chevy can find a way to keep all three he can be GM for life.
  4. I can't see them trading Laine. Only 20 years old. Plenty of time to reach his potential. But I think Trouba is a goner after this season. Someone has to go so we can keep Connor and Laine. Letting Myers and Chairot walk probably won't be enough.
  5. I say the Jets move on from Myers sooner rather than later. There's no way we can re-sign him in the offseason even if he took a significant discount. Not if we want to keep Laine, Connor, Copp, Tanev, and try to keep Trouba (lol we'll see I guess). Make a trade with Myers as the centerpiece while he still has value and teams look past his iffy defensive zone play. Hopefully get back a solid Dman or two. Throw in Chiarot too. Got really sick of seeing him just stand there while a Blackhawk player got multiple whacks at the puck in front of Helle before scoring. To be fair he wasn't alone in that but if you're a big physical Dman and you can't even clear the front of the net there isn't much point to you being out there.
  6. What was the deal with Johnson earlier this season? He was playing well from what I saw then Bryant took his spot and that was that. I assume I missed something significant. Could someone clue me in as to what happened with him?
  7. This seems like it's 5-10 years too late but what the hell. If it happens I'll happily make trips in to watch when my Wheaties are the opponent. Prepare for asswhoopings Winnipeg! Start the trash talk now lol. I didn't know Winnipeg was building another arena. Has it started yet? Does the fact that it'll be on the southside mean the potential WHL team could tap into a fanbase that can't be bothered to drive downtown for Moose games? As noted by another poster Wheat Kings games are around $20 for adults. Very reasonable and it's great hockey to watch. Always fun to watch some future NHL stars get their start in the dub. Even if sometimes they're on the other side whupping your team's ass from time to time 😮😀.
  8. I goto as many of those as I can. If I'm dropping cash on tix and gas money then whatever happens happens. I've watched them lose plenty over the years. I think I've earned the right to delete a loser pvred game every now and then. 🙃
  9. I do the same as you. Unless it's a west coast game I have to pvr it lest I incur the wrath of my family lol. And if it's a loss it gets deleted without being watched. I see no reason to put myself in a bad mood over a football game. Wait a day or two then come here and get the lowlights when I can laugh about it. And if it's a win I can savour the game, skip all the commercials and hit mute if Rod Black's doing play by play.
  10. So much for her being "a good witness"... https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/02/politics/trump-mocks-christine-blasey-ford-kavanaugh-supreme-court/index.html When it comes to Trump it's never been about politics to me. The man is just a **** human being through and through. His downfall (which sadly may never happen) cannot come soon enough.
  11. The worst part about the Gunn firing is that an absolute @#$%sack like Cernovich and his Alt-Right ilk came out winners in this. Disgusting that Disney caved to scum like that. Impressive how in the span of about two years things you posted on social media years ago went from being ignored to becoming a fireable offence. There's no way Disney/Marvel didn't see this stuff 6 years ago when they hired Gunn and they certainly couldn't have missed his apology for it back then too. It just didn't matter in 2012 I suppose.
  12. Nichols...Streveler...Harris. Damn fine players who wouldn't be nearly as effective without a monster O-line leading the way. Not taking away from the QBs or Harris of course but our O-line has been dominant so far this season. Fun to watch those boys work every game.
  13. Just a minor question in this debate...for those pointing out the crowds from Jets games that have converged at P & M from time to time, won't those crowds go to True North Square when it's up and running instead of going to P & M?
  14. New Era. If not the Jerseys at least let them make the hats. No one does it better.
