The Jackets are an unstoppable force of destruction. Or surrender.

This week it's destruction. Of the opposition or the heart of fans? I'll go with opposition this time.

I think you will get 4 out of 6, but all in Alberta, none in Vancouver. Does this mean Canada will respect now?

Is that Boomer dude on the road trip as well?
I do think we are missing some of the grit both those guys have and agree if we get any points on this trip they will come in Alberta.. I liked the way Sestito played and hope he can continue to play and display his hard nosed NA type of hockey, Arniel seems to like him so far and so do I. No Boomer on this trip, from what I understand he will be phased out and history by the summer..

I think we'll see two good games by Dorsett in Alberta.

I disagree. We should beat that Edmonton team. I guess I was incorrect about Calgary, but that's cool with me.

We are a better team, in a better place in the standings, than the Edmonton Oilers. I truly believe that; there's no reason we shouldn't beat teams like that ... other than the guys simply not trying hard enough.

2 pts. tonight and we finish with 4 of 6 and a win on the final night.

I can deal with that.

GO JACKETS!

I'm just confused is all. I thought this team folded like a cheap tent in a windstorm at the first sign of adversity.

Meh. Just recalling my pre-trip post about 2 OTLs is all. Not sure what you're getting at, but I'd hope that folks would get that I make few grand, sweeping pronouncements, and hardly ever minor inferences, from any given result.

Points is points.

4 out of 6, if we win tonight will be awesome, however looking back on it, it should be a disappoint that they should have had at the very least 5 out of 6.

Mason cost us 3 points, 1 vs Cgy and 2 tonight.
Garon was brilliant vs Vancouver and 45 minutes vs Cgy.

No respect in Canada I guess.

Because if Mason we get 2 points on that trip would have had 5. I feel like we out played the opposition most of the trip except the goaltending.

I get letting Mason ride thru it, but I think that time would be better spent in the minors. I hear nabokov is available.

Edmonton was winnable. That was the most disappointing game of the trip.
