The Jets have owned Washington.

Take the 2 points & they can have themselves a 1 week vacation in Florida.

I keep waiting for the Jets to crash back down to earth, but they have continued to win games that I expected them to lose. Voodoo? Magic? Noel sold his soul to the Devil? David Thompson has made every opponent offers they couldn't refuse? Benny Hatskin and John Ferguson have interceded with the Big Official in the Sky on the Jets' behalf?

Whatever, just win, please. Give an honest effort and win. Or, give a crappy effort and win. Either way, just win, please.

Thanks guys, this was a fun one to make. I think the Jets are going to walk away with this one. We need big games out of Wheel, Olli, Ladd and Kane. I'm guessing 5-2 Jets.

I would like to see the Jet's really kick the crap out of someone. I think today may be that day. Possible return of the flying W?

Go Jets Go!

For me this will be the most telling game of the season. we went 4-1 on a very tough road trip where everyone thought we would get squashed like a bug. We came home and pulled off a win in the traditional letdown game after the road trip. But now is the game we should and everyone will expect The Jets to win. We've had a few days of home cooking and are facing the last place team who is struggling. If the the Jets come out and lay a licking on the Caps in a very dominant way, IMO we will have turned the corner and be a force the rest of the way this season

I don't think the Jets aren't going to be a force regardless of the outcome. I still see them as a fringe playoff team.

The only way they can really become "a force" is if Pav can sustain the up part of his up and down play for 2 straight months.

When I said force I didn't mean Black Hawks force, I meant in the middle of the playoff hunt picture where we consistently win more than we lose and not having to rely on an act of God to get in when we get to the stretch drive.

That makes a little more sense.

I don't know that any one game will tell us much of anything.

Consistency in net and improving special teams are they keys here.

At some point we have to expect Ladd's scoring pace will cool. Wheeler and Jokinen both really need to step it up. Both have shown glimpses of the great play they're capable of (Wheeler, to his credit, much much more often) but not consistently enough. Jokinen will absolutely need to provide some scoring depth if this team is going to make the playoffs - Ladd and Kane likely can't continue at this pace all year. The same could be said for Burmi although the expectations are obviously different.

didn't we have a Friday night game on CBC?

Any word on line-up? I'm assuming that Noel's going to go with what's working, and Wellwood is watching from the press-box again?

The underlying numbers don't suggest an imminent down turn for Kaner. He is putting a lot of pucks on then and that should lead to scoring. He is working his way up to the point / per game threshold and that actually may be in line with his true talent.

He passes the eye-test too: Generates himself a lot of good chances, so it should stand to reason that he won't slow down.

Plus the extra shifts Noel gives him should also help in that regard.
