Was kind of bummed about the final score for a few minutes last night. Then I thought about what the majority of us were doing last year on this date, waiting for news about a possible collapse of the Coyotes negotiations or hoping that another team would fall into our laps. Now here we sit in a playoff race, while conversely other good folks lost their team recently, and the fans in Phoenix are going through a third year of limbo. We are pretty much blessed to be concerned about our position in the standings, at least from my perspective. Anything that follows from here on out is basically a bonus. GO JETS GO!!!!
What seriously? Doesnt surprise me tip ive heard thats the norm when attending a game in Vancouver
I've only ever attended Canucks games as a neutral observer/half-hearted Canuck supporter. I never noticed the crowd to be overly hostile to opposition fans. I'm sure they're not used to the arena being overtaken by opposition fans though. That probably had them riled a bit. I know I was ready to hoist the black flag and start slitting throats when I saw all the Oilers jerseys in Winnipeg last week...and I generally like the Oilers (at least, I can't hate a team run by idiots (*cough* Tambo *cough*) that has been so abysmal for so long).
As for tonight: second half of a back-to-back against a less-esteemed opponent on the road? Yikes! This has heartbreak written all over it...
I like our chances tonight against the flames. It gets tight now, i think by mid next week us flroida and washington are all on the same page as far as games played, lets hope were in the playoffs at that point.

I'm pretty nervous and shakey about this game. A Jets win could set the stage for a nice little run to a play-off spot for the remainder of the season. Otoh, I'm afraid a loss could be a back-breaker for the team. For some reason I'm not feeling super confident right now...
I still haven't forgiven him for scoring the very first goal against us
Flames are major hurting right now. Cammy is out, Backlund, Stempniak, Butler, Comeau, Jackman, Jones, Byron. Even the call ups are getting injured.
So yeah, guys like Desbiens are in......
Keep an eye on Bartschi - it will be his first NHL game, and he's tearing it up in the WHL.
Been waiting for this game since the Jets left. Sucks that I have to wait another year before I can be there!
I don't have the Jets channel and can no longer catch Flames games on Sportsnet West , so what are my options?
