I thought I would share a video I took of the final minute in regulation in tonight's game. Such a proud moment to be a Pegger! A moment in time I will probably never forget!

Trololololol... You could always watch games if you found the time. I mean, you are a Jets fan right?

Pavs was fantastic this year. We saw it again last night in the third. He's the reason the Jets weren't down by three instead of only one goal with a minute left. He made a bunch of great saves to keep us in the game. THere have been so many games this year where the Jets just couldn't get the puck out of their own end for frustratingly long periods of time and inevitably it seemed like that led to one goal against after another. The whole team got off to a bad start. The stats aren't the whole story...

T'was a great, joyous season of hockey! I'm pleased that the Jets gave the fans at MTS something to get wound up about one last time before it ended by tying it up last night. Now that the first season is over, management can get down to work and start building us a winner.

Yes, of course. Stats. Stats that will tell you that Ray Whitney is obviously a better player Hossa, Gaborik, Kopitar, Eberle, Sedin, Parise, Datsyk, Patrick Kane, Ovechkin ....

Damn it, I WAS going to make a joke about Pavs being the reason we failed to make the playoffs... and then another guy comes around and shows, by posting stats nonetheless, that he really was!

I wish I had the audio on An Arneil interview where he was discussing the difference between shots on goal and scoring chances. I might get this wrong but I will give it a shot.

Scott was saying if you could limit the scoring chances you give up to 10 a game your chances of winning a game are excellant but if you give up more than 15 a game your chances of victory go way down. I think there is a difference between shots and scoring chances as well and I think it goes along way to explaining a portion of the story on Pavs numbers.

He was not amazing night in night out and has some work to do on his consistency to become top 10 but on most nights this year he kept us in and I do believe on balance he is our MVP. I did think he played his best hockey in the middle of the season and saved us less often later in the year but that can happen and is part of our growing process.

When I watched night in night out I was stunned at the quality of shots he faces compared to a goalie like Smith (Phoenix), Lehtonen (Dallas), or Quick in LA, those are three teams I watched allot of this year and I like all those goalies allot but there teams did away better job night in night out of keeping the quality of scoring chances managed.

Our team was pretty loose defensively this year and gave up allot of odd man rushes and so many high qaulity chances in point blank range with blown assignments.

My guess is this will be one of the main issues addressed in the off season......we need to become a better team defensively and decrease the number of quality scoring chances we give out night to night.

Pavs will be fine and for my money has top 10 potential......I agree with Peter I would have liked them to use Mason a bit more to keep Pavs fresher but Pavs was not the reason we missed the playoffs if anything he was probably the reason we didn't finish in a better spot to fail for Nail

Yeah ideally I'd have liked to see more of Mason too but I think basically we got into a situation where for the last month and a half every single friggin game was monumentally important. I think the situation forced Noel to go with Pavs more than he would have liked becuase Pavelic played well enough that he didn't really have a reason to not go with his number 1 guy. I'm sure under different circumstances (such as the Jets having won four or five more games in the first half of the season) Mason would have gotten several more starts...

Fun game to be at last night and an amazing year.

Honestly it has been like a dream and it's all a bit of a blur.


I would have loved to make the playoffs but maybe it's the hockey gods telling us not to be gluttons.....time to push away from the table after the great feast of 2011-2112......they are telling us dessert will taste so much sweeter if we weight just a bit longer

Season went by just as I imagined it at the start. Just like a Thrashers Season but with the lasting feeling of more upside in Winnipeg. I'm not sure why but the situation around the team changed so much, it makes me feel way more comfortable going into the next season. I am trusting True North, Noel, Chev and what they'll do with our main core of players absolutely... I could never have said that about the situation in Atlanta.

The CBC guys were singing his praises when he swung around the net and went end-to-end. He was great.
