jaffray?....really?

will the moose noose ever come loose?

i can understand giving moose fans all the season tickets as a reward, but i draw the line at rewarding their journeyman minor leaguers with time in the NHL....is mike keane available to suit up?

he and mcardle will make a dynamic duo.

You can't tell me that is a system failure.
Great point, Noel talked at the beginning of the season about what a smart group this was, yada, yada, was he comparing it to an AHL team?

I see a lot of really dumb plays by some of the guys on the team (usually the same ones) that you just don't see players on other teams making. Way to many icing calls against the Jets, poor efforts on PK's where they tap at the puck instead of firing it down the ice, shots from the point on the PP when the forwards are not down low or set yet.

I think you guys are giving Noel too much crap. Let the guy finish out the season before you judge him. Most if not all the players on the team... who were with Thrashers last season should be playing way better games.

Regardless of who their coach is, you don't need a coach to tell you how to score if you have been in the NHL for 5+ seasons. Games are situational and practice can only help so much.

Long term guys, long term.
My speech. You can expand on the development point and reverse it for the veterans. Jaffray, Flood or Festerling won't develop much (at all?) while playing in the AHL. As a consequence, they are better suited for the call-up, also based on pro-hockey experience.

P.S. I like the call-ups. Can't wait to see AK.

Jaffray is the perfect call up right now. He has been playing with intensity and the energy level we need to inject into our lineup right now. Every is quick to jump on scoring but the fact is we don't have anyone that is going to come in and score 4 goals a night to win us games. The team is working with what we have which is a line up of gritty grinders who aren't all grinding now.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. 5 coaches in 5 years with young players. Without gutting the team like Florida, it's going to be a long time until this team can stay consistently good.

This had me concerned as well. It could take awhile.

I expect Jaffray to replace McArdle in the lineup.
