No surprise there, glad it's an AHL contract and not a 2-way NHL one though. Still boggles my mind that there are some Jaffray fans in Winnipeg who want him to receive regular call-ups (I'm looking at you, 1290 callers!)

Very happy to have him back.Might be a player/coach?

He'll be good for St. John's and good for development of the Jets prospects.
Win/win

He's a good veteran presence down on the farm. A charcter guy who has a good relationship with TNSE. I would speculate that he will have a job within the organization when his playing career ends.

1290 callers!!! didn't someone want Lee Goren on the Jets?

I agree, I like him on St. John's, I just don't think he's good enough for NHL call-ups. Very happy he's signed there though.

Yes, Lee Goren. Also wanted Jimmy Roy to come out of retirement.

Cool, there's one guy that will get to play all season!

I'm happy for Jaffray and I look forward to another great season for the IceCaps.

Glad to see he decided to stick with the organization. He used to be my favourite player for the Moose. I have a soft spot for Jaffray and I am one of those people who think he is a decent 13th forward at the NHL level :blush:.

From what I've seen from him last season when he played the 13th forward role for a couple of games there is a short answer for that question: No.

No offense :) but with players like Miettinen, Machacek, Cormier, Klingberg and Telegin battling for that spot, there is no way Jaffray should be on that list.

But you're probably biased I guess? :)

Good signing for the AHL club. Jaffray's a good leader and veteran AHLer that will help make St. John's a better team.

I imagine they were all waiting a bit to see how he'd recover post-surgery, on Twitter he said he started skating last week or so. Awesome to hear he's recovered so well -- Jaffray is exactly the type of vet you want setting the tone for the prospects, and I'm glad he's staying in our organization.

Samcanadian 08-23-2012 09:55 AM

I think he's accepting the fact that he's an AHL guy and wants to stay with an organization that treats him right. He's a perfect farm-club piece and he's going to help keep some of our prospects in check.

I was thinking the same thing, Jimmy Roy was a longtime Moose and is now the Director of Player Development. I wouldnt be surprised if Jaffray is still with the organization in some capacity after he retires.
