Novacane 04-21-2013 01:22 PM

Must lose.

DaveG 04-21-2013 01:26 PM

huge game boys, we lose this one and we're in the catbird seat for the top 3.

HisIceness 04-21-2013 01:29 PM

I see a 5-1 loss in our future.

smi 04-21-2013 01:31 PM

Perhaps tonight I won't fall asleep ten minutes before the game.

And therefore, guaranteed victory.

BigFatCat999 04-21-2013 01:54 PM

Um, can you guys make this an OTW so the Preds can slingshot to 28th. :D

Brock Anton 04-21-2013 02:01 PM

Now THIS is the epitome of a must lose.

Clark Gillies 04-21-2013 02:03 PM

If there were ever a must lose game this is it, therefore the Canes win 5-1.

though I may be able to tolerate a win against the Rangers to troll them in revenge for 2011 if it makes sure the Jets get in over them.

There will be plenty of opportunities to troll the Rangers in the future. In the meantime we need to defend the South and prevent the Biscuits n' Gravy banner (SE Division Title) from flying in Siberia :sarcasm:

One's a Canadian franchise filled with whiny, entitled fans who think they're better than everybody else who preyed like vultures over the first time of any team in trouble and who immediately felt like being put in the SE Division was an easy ticket to PLAYOFFS, PLAYOFFS, OMG WHITEOUT, PLAYOFFS!!!!1111! The other isn't. I'll take the Rangers for $500, Alex.

Novacane 04-21-2013 03:31 PM

I agree with Dave's line of thinking. Winnipeg would get stomped in the first round anyway. Kill two birds with one stone.

See, if they were smart they'd wanna be in the NW. The SE is fairly competitive. Different winner every year, a couple Cups in the past few years. Several appearances in the ECF.

The NW on the other hand, Vancouver (who isn't even that good anymore tbh) wins by 40 points every year while the other four teams constantly fight for top 5 picks (Except Calgary, who are a lock to trade their 1st & 2nd every year for Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust)

At the price of hearing the national media give Winnipeg an epic ass-kissing over how awesome their fans are and how raucous the place will be and how great it is that hockey returned to Mosquito Gulch. No thanks. I honestly hope that for however long this iteration of the Jets stay in Winnipeg that they never, ever make the playoffs. As bad as Atlanta had it? I want the Jets to have it 100 times worse.

At least Atlanta has Park and entertain for families. It's not minus 40 something so I don't need to take tunnel to arena.

I dare you to live in an NHL market in Canada and also be a fan of a Southern team for a year. You'll quickly change your tune lol

Let me clarify by my "as bad as Atlanta had it." I meant in terms of team operations. Let it not go unsaid that ASG ran that franchise into the ground on the backs of those fans. My hatred of Winnipeg is magnified beyond my normal hatred of Canadian franchises simply because of how they got that team and who they got it from. I'd honestly love to hear Winnipeg fans griping about how ownership told them to "deal with" a problem at the arena. I'd love to see them trade off their best players and prospects for a song. In shot I'd love to see them become an abject failure and finally dispel this myth of how awesome the poor, downtrodden Winnipeg fan was who had to sit through the injustice of *gasp* AHL hockey.

And I agree with you totally, CI. Any media story about how awesome a Jets playoff crowd is comes at the expense of fans in cities like Anaheim, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Phoenix, Sunrise, Tampa, and Raleigh. The subtextual, if not explicit call is for teams to be removed from those markets and moved to "more deserving" places in the great white north. "See? They sucked when they played in Atlanta but now that they're here in Winnipeg, where the fans care, we're excited to bring you playoff hockey!"

Wolfpuck 04-21-2013 03:48 PM

*sigh*

Do we have to?

Blueline Bomber 04-21-2013 03:51 PM

So, I thought we were playing Tampa, not Winnipeg.
