. So I don't see the Jets current little slump as bad, maybe we can pick up that true #1 center in the draft this year. Or maybe Schief will be one, but until that point, I don't see the Jets doing much, especially in the conference they'll find themselves in next year.
I'm not so sure about this. I've been thinking a lot about it. I think Winnipeg will be a very polarizing place to call home for players. Either you love the small town feel and crazy crowds or you don't. IMO, that's much better than being a middle-of-the-road city in every respect. I get the impression that many of the visiting players have been in awe of the atmosphere at the MTS Centre and I assume at least some would love to play in that 42 times per year. It will be interesting to see how July 1st goes.
