I'm just asking the question about Maclean.

You would think that the management team thought long and hard about putting in the claim. So you would have to think that they had at least a short term (10 games?) plan to see how it would work.

It doesn't make sense to me to claim the guy, and then send him packing after a game where the whole team played bad (but he had an assist )
I can't see The Jets picking up McLean to give him one game to prove himself.

You need more than the first game of the season in a crazy circumstance to earn a spot on the team. If that was the case there are 20 other Jets who also didn't earn a spot.

I could see them scratching him and having him practice a bit before drawing in again. The Jets do need to win games after all.

Yeah, I think we are saying the same thing.

TNSE was trying to acquire the Nashville franchise first followed by the Coyotes for a couple of years, the acquisition of the Thrashers came late and rather quickly.

i agree and I was a bit surprised he was in the line up on opening night. Its tough to get chemistry instantly and i thought he might need to get some practice time under his belt before.

The Yotes fans told me he was really slow and they got that right but they also said he is a pure scorer so I think we will need to give him a bit of a chance to show us that side and let him work with our team for a while. Sunday showed us we are exactly overflowing with trigger men. Not saying Maclean will work out but its a bit early to write him off.

I would like to see Derek Meech in the line-up against the Black Hawks, dress 7 D-men.

Bet Meech scores two goals against Chicago!

My fellow wpg jets fans,

I need your help with my fantasy hockey league. Let me know what you think with these trades... Thanks!!!

Would you trade...brassard and o'reily for Colin Wilson and derick stepan.

Would you trade bullion wall and bergenhiem for rask(Boston).

I think Meech needs a start and Oduya needs to sit.

The oriely wilson trade is pretty even. Its a toss up which combo would produce more i would personally stick with brassard oreily but it could go either way.

Noel commenting on yesterday's practice said that it was "marginally better" than Tuesday's workout.



Oh my.
