Difference between 8th and 10th pick could be important. I'm torn. Can I secretly cheer for a loss?

At the end of every passover seder (This time of year) Jewish families across the world say "Next year, in Jerusalem"

Let's do something different "Next year, with Teemu, Doan, Scheifele and the Cup."

Just scored 2 club seats for the game! Stoked! It really paid to be on the waiting list. This will be my 23rd game of the year at MTS Centre.

See some of you at the game. It's been an amazing season guys.

Coach Noel Game Day Press Conference



Coach Noel pre-game presser: Feels fine, wants team to play well. Hainsey not in game, Jones game time decision, no to Fehr. What he has liked about the goaltending. Areas of disappointment. Team fundamentals. Evolution of game. Growth of his team.

Really really cool bro like thread

When I have more time I will have to weigh in but safe to say the first press conference when Marlk announced our aquisition of the team and our re-entry to the NHL was something I will never forget. I was on the side of a highway transporting some new Seadoo's back from Minnesoda and stopped to watch it on my iPad. a friend was following me in his vehicle and joined me in my car too watch. two bros that were both fighting back tears as Mark spoke.

Life altering event

That's an awesome story

I landed in Minneapolis Airport from overseas at about noonish on May 31st. We were only going to be in the airport for an hour or so, but we overheard somebody say something about the Atlanta Thrashers (obviously I knew the rumours as a long time BoH follower) and we had a strong suspicion about what happened. We waited in a sports bar until the called our names on the PA saying we had to report to our flight to WPG but all we heard on ESPN was "big news" about the Atlanta Thrashers. Despite this we were basically celebrating, high fiving, maybe a "Go Jets Go" chant in Minneapolis airport. We we fairly sure we had a team and we landed in Winnipeg at 3-4, we told the cabbie to turn it to cjob, and we heard it was confirmed. It was just unreal. Cabbie damn near crashed, we were cellying in the cab so much! Cabbie thought we were nuts, he was asking us all sorts of questions about NHL/Jets in between us celebrating :laugh. It was awesome.

Can't believe that was full NHL season ago.

So excited, so glad I got this game in my draft. It's going to be great game. Just like Game 1, does not matter the score, there will be a loud and long standing ovation after the game. At least that's what I will be doing. Can't wait!!
Go JETS Go!

Outstanding GDT. Sure is a lot of talent on the board. Decided to come back into town from the lake a day early to catch the game in comfort. The power isn't hooked up yet and cell service is iffy at best. Caught Thursday game on the Radio and it just wasn't the same. It was the first game I wasn't at or didn't see on TV and it just didn't feel right.

I would sacrifice dropping down a pick or two to see the boys win one to finish off the season

So, which one in the OP is Machacek? Obvious fantasy question is obvious.

I think this BDT is great. Most of the pictures made me smile or laugh out loud. A few went over my head though.

Hearing some of the stories that you guys have told about the moment you heard the Jets were back definitely makes me feel like I missed out on something there.
I do remember hearing random "Go Jets go" chants around downtown for quite a while. Whenever we heard them, my friends and I would turn to each other, shrug, and say "I don't get it."

Now I get it.

Thanks for making me feel welcome. Thanks for everything.

Thanks for all the love on the BDT, even though most of the pics aren't even mine
And Hammer that gif is hilarious.

The Macho Man is on the 2nd line.

EDIT: Nice work JGE. Pictoral aid given, in case our visiting friend isn't familiar with 80s wrestling.

I just went and had a look at the Vcash thread for tonight's game and there is 114,556 bet on Tampa. I've never seen it that high. I think I will put a little down on the Jets.

Thanks a lot guys! I need points in a H2H-league (final), so he's staying. Hopefully he gets more playing time than in the last game and the combination of Tampa's putrid D and your goal-happy O gives him some points.

Is Flood in for the recently weak looking Clitsome?

PS hope this post isn't too negative for some.

It's from the thread in the Lounge. One guy has 100 000 vCash. Last week we all bet on Minnesota to win their game, but this week I couldn't be a part of it. I went all in on the Jets.

Hi all, its been an amazing year.

I made a tribute slideshow/video on the "Return of the Jets", but only finished a draft version by today.

Has all the media/newspaper clips I saved as the return of the NHL drew nearer and some vids at the end. Will make a better one later.


Its uploading right now, but I'm off to the game!

GO JETS GO!

Missing the game tonight as I have to work again. Oh well. Hope they win, but won't be disappointed if we lose and raise our draft position. Not that it matters as we'll get a pretty good player regardless. So GO JETS GO!!!

P.S. Hope Stammer gets #60.

I think he's in instead of the Hains or Cones. Don't think they are playing.

Stamkos scores the only Lightning goal, but the Jets win 6-1. Hainsey taps 6 in from his cushiony press box seat.

Can't believe its already the last game of the season. Seems like it was yesterday that I was sitting down anxious to watch the May 31st presser announcing the return of the Jets.

What a garbage feed on CBC for the last game of the season. Why couldn't this be on TSN Jets in HD?
