In all seriousness, the Jets are in reality barely an eighth place team - they came back strong after allowing the first goal, but the wheels fell off the bus after the shorthanded gaol. If the LLW line doesn't show up, and Pavelec has a so-so game, this will be the result. Every. Single. Time.

Almost every jet player made a stupid play, including the so-called core players. Buff and Enstrom seemed as though their heads just weren't in the game, Bogo, Meech and Hainsey all seemed to be unable to gain any control when they were pinned, and other than Antropov, Wellwood and Tangradi, the rest of the Jets looked like they were trying to pass live grenades.

Although, ahd Lundqvist not stood on his head through some extended pressure shifts by the jets, this game could just have easily been 4-1 for the visitors.

It's not the end of the world, just the Jets crashing back down to earth.

I'm now officially bi-polar. I'm all calm and peaceful now, but I was warned by my wife at least twice that I was going to have to turn the game off if I couldn't stop yelling.

Do one of two things:

1. Give him 3-5 games straight in a top 6 role. 15+ Minutes every night. If you want a young player to develop you don't throw him into 8 different roles with 9 different linemates. Let him learn to be a top 6, and if it doesn't work out and he doesn't show progress you at least know what you have with him. If this fails . . .

2. Trade him. If we're going to let him waste away on the 4th line then why not get an asset to play in the top 9 for him.
You don't trade him because he isn't working out this season.
He is still developing and is a work in progress.

To be fair, they've won four of their last five. The one loss being versus Pittsburgh.

Those are our Jets! I don't feel that great saying I knew this would happen.

It would be nice to draft a forward to play with Kane...

You can print this press release for a small fee of $5."
What do you REALLY think was out there? Wellwood is a plug who did really well last season and got another year extension. Joker had a phenomenal year last year and was thought to be able to extend that this year. Poni was a body for the 3rd line and was to be used primarily in a shutdown role. Miettinen was a waiver wire pick up, as was Clitsome. Their values are so low right now, it's not waiving them or trying to trade them.

This teams tendancie to get demoralized is confounding. Welky intro t line looked good. Llw and Kane & co had to many miss cues and not enough quality chances. A guy like lubdqvist is going to make 2 or 3 huge saves every game so you need more then two quality chances
Well, I thought they played great in the 1st. After they evened it up they controlled play and I was incredibly confident they would take the lead and win the game.

Then that epic failure of a 5-on-3 took place and they never got control back.

Considering how terrible the division is it's easier for the Jets to get in that way. Like you said though, it's unlikely they hold on as Cheveldayoff will likely be selling off players in the next few days further diminishing the little talent the team has.

The Rangers and Islanders are now one point back of the Jets while the Canes are 4 and the Caps are 5 back. There will likely be only one team from the Southeast in the playoffs this season, whoever wins the division.

Poor Jets

We'd be much happier if they were to win more games.

does the draft go by points or by position? If we are 3rd but have less points then 8th, who drafts higher?

On the plus side, the Habs just scored and made it 3-1.

They all sounded so happy a month or so ago, it's all gone now. Doesn't look like they have much confidence in themselves to finish out the season.

Goes by standings. Being first in the SE really sucks because you're a bubble team that can't get any better due to making the playoffs.

Yes, agreed. They are all garbage but taking up precious minutes on our second line or 2nd PP unit. Amazing that this team has managed to scrape together the wins that we have with that group of rubbish.

It's funny that so many people snicker at the meltdowns on the Leaf's board after a couple losses but this one is much much worse. We are out Leaf fanning the Leaf fans. Congrats.

Nope.

30th - Cup Winner
29th - Cup Finalist
28th - More Points Conference Finalist
27th - Less Points Conference Finalist
Division Winners (if no Division Winners make Conference Finals they would 21-26 in reverse order of points)
Playoffs teams
Non-Playoff teams

There is absolutely no way to draft higher than the 8th place team if you win the division unless the 8th place team makes Conference Finals.

Why do the Jets dress 12 forwards when 2 spend the game on the bench, shouldn't Noel have been dressing 7 D the last 3-4 games.
