Hello Wright! We need you on our 3rd/4th line! Please help!

Simple play here!

It should be very obvious that we lack depth and skill at the NHL and AHL level and it's so bad we're looking for anything on the waiver wire to create competition with the players.

Yes, we need this. Burmi is coasting all over the place. We have guys on our roster who simply don't play or practice at 100%. That will change. I anticipate Noel is ticked off with a lack of intensity and this will begin to push players. Don't be surprised to see Burmi, Schiefele, Maceneur and maybe Thornburn removed from the Jets roster the second that Miettenen is back.

I will also say this - I want the Jets to succeed. But if these moves don't provide a spark on the roster and we start slow and are below .500 in the first 20 some games - expect MASSIVE and WHOLESALE changes and trades. Right now, it seems like we lack effort, competition, and consistency in scoring, D and in goal. I think anyone is potential trade bait if this team falters out of the gate. There are no more excuses. Noel and Chevy know that.
