Can you say "anti-climatic?" Jets start strong then stumble to a 4-1 loss to the Sens

Guerzy 01-19-2013 05:07 PM

All Systems (were not a) Go.

BigTuna49 01-19-2013 05:07 PM

"Sigh" sums it up pretty well.

Diatidialga 01-19-2013 05:07 PM

The next 2 will determine if we can make the playoffs or not

Dibs on the Official Tank Thread

The most aggression showed in this game was Duke and Jet's Thorburn discussion.

Gnova 01-19-2013 05:07 PM

Was a good game up until the 3rd.

9-12-13 have zero chemistry.

Buff and Enstrom looked really good
Burmi was great

Pretty much the same old story from last year. Bad defensive mistakes. Giving up a lead. Questionable goal from pavs.

Hey Jets fans. Rough game for your D and Pavelec, but entertaining nonetheless. Good to finally have NHL hockey back! Peace all, see ya next game!

Loooooooooooooosers :help:

What a friggin' disappointment.

Did Kane play today?

NODLR 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

I like the new GoDaddy pizza commercial they have running...

Savagestevo 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

I thought Shiefele played well. Pretty much everyone else besides Buff crapped the bed though, disappointing home opener. Also unfortunate that the fans booed during that PP, stuff like that doesn't contribute to anything.

Diatidialga 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

Well, on the bright side LA did worse than us today.

sipowicz 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

Clitsome, Postma and Pavs can take credit in the Senator`s win.

Jet 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

Not only did our biggest weaknesses rear their ugly heads in a big way in this game, our 'improved' size and offense did nothing to wrest the momentum back in the 3rd.

I thought Byfuglien and Enstrom were great, Hainsey was up and down (terrible on the 2nd goal) and Stuart, Postma and Clitsome were... well... not good.

Pavelec will have to be much, much, much better if we have a hope of the playoffs.

CallADocPlease 01-19-2013 05:09 PM

The team looked incredibly passive after the 30 minute mark. I am seriously worried that the whole teams conditioning, not Buffs is the issue.

Diatidialga 01-19-2013 05:10 PM

I still can't see why we didn't improve our D at all when it was our major weakness last year.

Joe Hallenback 01-19-2013 05:10 PM

Very soft effort. No wonder they picked up Peluso and Wright. Need to inject some heart and toughness in soon for this butter soft team

Eastern Bloc Line
Enstrom - Byfuglien

LLW (although some moments...)

Not Noticeable (neither good nor bad):

Not good:
Kane - Jokinen

Noticeable in a bad way:

I'm just going to say it: I am sick of seeing Dancing Gabe in every b roll of Winnipeg's sporting events. We get it.

SensibleGuy 01-19-2013 05:13 PM

Yeah the whole team seemed to really run out of steam after about the half way point. Lots of things for Coach Noel to work on. :)

Oh well, theres still 47 games to go. Lots of time to right the ship...

You to! Every frickin Jets, Blue Bomber game we see his goofy grin, I get he is a passionate fan and that he has challenges but give it a rest already.

garret9 01-19-2013 05:14 PM

Scheifele played 11:49
That's more 3rd line TOI than 4th so that's a bit of silver lining

The Good:

- Jokinen comes exactly as advertised. His puck poise and speed are fantastic, although I really don’t think Kane belongs on this line.

- Enstrom and Byfuglien are picking up where they left off. Two very strong defensemen, and one of the best pairings in the league.

- The Ponikarovsky-Burmistrov-Antropov line was incredible. By far the best line on the team. Hustle, defensive skill and agitation all in one.

- The team played an excellent first ten minutes.

The Bad:

- Noel broke up the PBA line in the third. Found that very questionable as they were the only line creating any chances.

- Pavelec allowed two very soft goals. In fact, none of the goals against were particularly good.

- Hainsey and Stuart were bad. Not the worst pairing, but they were bad.

- Blake Wheeler wasn’t himself. He played with a fire last year that I didn’t see at all tonight.

The Ugly:

- Scheifele’s skating is terrible. He needs to be returned to juniors to work on that. He may need to spend next year in St. John’s. There’s no point in rushing him. This team is not a serious contender.

- The Postma-Clitsome pairing was particularly brutal. This goes to show how weak our defensive depth is. Really should have kept Kulda around.


After losing the opener, we could be very much in trouble if Bogosian isn’t back soon. Our glaring weakness is on defense. Past Enstrom and Byfuglien, I don’t feel comfortable with anyone else on the ice. Ladd, Wheeler and Kane MUST play better, or we will stand no chance at making the playoffs. As for goaltending…I won’t comment beyond saying that Montoya needs to be ready for a lot of playing time.

With all that said, I’m happy to have hockey back, and I’m glad to be able to complain about the team’s play, rather than about business meetings and greedy rich people.

Oh for two on season and home openers
