  1. Just a reminder that Perfetti just turned 22 at the start of the year. This is his second full season and third overall. He had 8 goals, 22 assists last year for 30 points in 51 games, is 14-16-30 this year with a quarter season to go (on pace for 19-22-41). Scheifele by comparison at 22 was in his 4th season (2nd full) and had 15 goals, 33 assists, 49 points in a full 82 game season, and in his third year was 13 goals. 21 assists, 34 points in 63 games. So fairly comparable numbers, Scheifele a bit ahead. Way too early to call for a trade IMO.
  2. Didn’t think there was any sexual component to it. He was drunk after a team party and walked into the wrong house. Got beaten up by the husband with a vacuum cleaner hose for sitting on their couch and rambling incoherently. Plead guilty to misdemeanour trespass. But hasn’t been convicted for being a sexual predator, AFAIK.
  3. But no one here was saying he should be kicked out of the league permanently either, which is how some have reacted to Kelly’s allegations. And many called it a “mistake”, not a crime, which it was. Or that more than a one game suspension was warranted and were content to have him come back and play while the charges still hung in the air.
  4. For one possible answer, see the general (but not universal) difference in reaction to Andrew Harris’ failed drug test and the justification that it was a tainted sample/useless old school steroid no one would take/so minimal in reading it was effectively useless and the corresponding response to Leonard’s test refusal (and therefore unknown what if anything he was on) in Saskatchewan and all the PED Leonard comments.
  5. They match up well against our style, and we have never beaten Jake Oettinger in regulation. Funny thing is Dallas can’t beat Colorado, who we have not lost to yet. Whoever gets first place in the division has a big advantage not having to play the other two in the first round (unless of course Edmonton slips back to the wildcard spot and becomes a super dangerous 7 seed). Best case scenario is Jets win the division and face Nashville or even better St. Louis, next best is face LA, third best is finish second in the Central but draw Colorado in Round 1 and hope Dallas gets upset by the wild card team.
  6. Every once in a while, I like to gauge the intelligence level of the posters with an esoteric title to see how they respond. Thankfully, I won’t have to resort to knock knock jokes for the rest of the thread. Lol.
  7. Dallas and Philadelphia have been the two clubs that have beaten the Jets at their own game this year with aggressive forecheck, low danger chance defence, great goaltending, and just enough opportunistic offence. Those teams are the ones I’d want to avoid in the playoffs. Curious to see tonight how each team’s game has evolved since their last meeting in November
  8. Chris Tanev sorting out immigration issues so not available tonight.

  10. Game time - 7:00 pm, TSN 3 At stake - outright first in Central by night’s end Side note - a Jets win and they will guarantee a better season record than the Blackhawks with 24 games still to go.
  11. If you break down the clip, Whitney said it’s a player on a current playoff team, so it wouldn’t be Minny. Also, Biz asked “is this a team they could meet…” and Whitney answered “yes” before Biz finished with “in the first round” so it could be any current playoff team. Now, some more likely suspects arise, like Evander Kane in Edmonton (because I could see him running his mouth), or PLD in LA due to recent history with the club, but maybe it’s one of the Stars, since they have handled Winnipeg’s game well this year, or a Canuck after they arguably outplayed the Jets but lost last week and someone is bitter. But honestly the Jets seem OK playing a run and gun (like this past week where they have been scoring) or lock down defence (basically all of December and January) to win 2-1. And if healthy they can roll 4 lines and play either goalie with confidence, so I’d say they are well-built for the playoffs, and their special teams are now coming around with the addition of Monahan. But West is wide open this year, with any of 6 teams honestly not being a surprise if they make the Finals (and even LA has an outside shot of they re-discover their November swagger). Two very very good teams are going to get bounced in round one guaranteed based on the 2 vs 3 match-ups whatever they are.
  12. IIRC he never seemed to have his head in the game when he was here. I seem to remember one game where he (I’m pretty sure it was him and not another receiver) caught a pass in the flat about 5 yards from the sideline and then “let his momentum” take it out of bounds uncontested to avoid taking a hit, when he had about 30 yards of real estate in front of him before he would have encountered any would-be tacklers had he simply turned it upfield which he should have easily been able to do had he just looked up. That play received more boos than any drop (and there were several of those too) as it showed where his mental game was at.
