As Noel would say... give me a golden 2 points on Saturday afternoon. That'll make me happy. No overtime just a regulation win... those are going to be huge wins for a team with all play be inter-conference.

Go Jets Go!

I think I'm giving the wrong impression here. I'm not saying that I won't watch hockey again if they do nothing...it's just surprising.

The guy that said they should subsidize some of the bars that encircle the MTS centre has it bang on I think. I also think that they should waive the cost for the Jets channel for all those that aren't lucky enough to be able to get tickets.

I'm sure that I will forget about all of this soon, I just find it surprising that the only thing they have done is 25% off.

Every other Canadian team, none of which need to do anything to keep the fans coming, have all done more then the Jets have.

I'm just saying that they should so something for their fans, to show that they do appreciate them.

Ottawa Senators and Molsons are giving away free beer at their home opener Monday.

Not every team is doing something. Seems it's mostly the struggling teams. Not entirely sure why the Leafs did anything. It was pointless.

The Jets gave a dsicount at the team store, and had an open pratice where they gave free popcorn and a drink plus some free hats. Plus the jets are building a strong team picking up ahl players through the waiver wire. Can't ask for more than that.

Agree to disagree as well. Can't see how the waiver pickups will make a fart in a windstorm's difference. Mind you, if we were to pick up Redden or Gomez for say $1M this season, that wouldn't be quite so bad.

With the injury holes and the importance of flying out of the gate in such a short season, it would be nice to see a bit more happening outside of some AHL pickups who likely won't make a dent in anything.

I fail to see your logic.
Picking up young players who are being reassigned to their AHL team=bad.
Picking up older, potentially washed players that are being paid to go away=good?

Agree.....the Thrashers farm system sucked.....we will be trying to build that up for the next 5 years into a decent feeder system like the Moose were...

It's a long road folks this ins't going to turn into a successful franchise in 3 years just because it is in Winnipeg now.....

25% is hardly a discount.

Let's talk 35-40%. THAT would've been something.

I considered saying Porsche, but then I figured that would be unrealistic...

The entitlement of people in this thread amazes me.

Yes the leafs gave free tickets out to their STHs and 1000 or so other fans in Toronto.
So as a fan if you aren't a STH you have a minuscule chance of getting one of these 1000 tickets.
There is probably a good chance that a lot of those 1000 tickets will be handed to people that don't really want to go to the game and they end up scalping them.

If you are a Ottawa STH or were lucky enough to get a ticket to the opening game you will get discounted food and perhaps a free beer.

Both those teams are "giving back" to a very small minority of their fans.

The Jets offer 25% of merchandise at their store and that is available to every fan in the city.
There will also likely be some giveaway at the home opener for people that are lucky enough to be going.

Which of these three franchises got it right?

To give more than a 25% discount would have been completely foolish. Jets merchandise is still selling well and if they offer this huge discount everyone would buy everything they want and the sales would be flat for the foreseeable future.

If the Jets play in an environment where they can sign and keep marquee players, and have the chance to win the Stanley Cup, I am happy.

I'll take that over some mea culpa giveaway any day of the week.

Not pointing fingers at anyone in particular but it's become quite evident that there are some who are just itching to find fault in an org that worked for many years to bring the NHL back here. If you choose to turn on them any time you think something isn't perfect, so be it.

I will stay loyal to the org that stayed loyal to my city.
amen to that. Where are your seats? ill buy you a beer for that.

This. Especially after those losses we suffered to the Sens last year, man oh man did those leave a sour taste in my mouth.
