here's hoping he proves them wrong tonight.

i think the bruins are beatable....bring the effort from the last 5 games and not the 5 before that and we can beat anyone.

As Rick Flair said..."To be the Man, you have to beat the Man."

This will be a test to see where the Jets are at.

Bring it, Bruins, Bring it!

The Hains isn't ready to go yet.

I suppose Cheryl Crow was right when she said the first cut is the deepest.

Hahaha....a friend and I were laughing yesterday when we thought of Ric Flair getting that North Carolina Canes crowd going by starting up that horn at the beginning of games....in any event, very true sentiments here, BIGGEST W so far if we beat the Boston Bruins in Boston, let me tell ya! WOOOOOOO!

I believe that Julien's system is built to expose turnovers and capitalize on them offensively. This is a weakness I see from the Jets, they commit a lot of turnovers. I think Noel is gonna have to come with his "A" game, or this could turn into a beat down.

BTW why bring what I say on another board? I realize it could be considered trolling if I made those comments on the Jets board, so I didn't post them in here out of respect. Don't let your Habs love bring hate to this board

Well I haven't given up my love for the Bruins. I hold loyalty rather highly.. The Jets are my hometown team, but they're still my 2nd favorite overall.

I brought up Noel's lack of coaching experience. Which is in fact true. Anyways, I hope it turns out to be a good game either way.

You're right. Anyone could coach that team to a regular season win. Not everyone could coach them to a Stanley cup though. Give Julien some credit. I hate the Bruins as much as anyone but they are well coached.

At the beginning of the season it seemed that they would turn the puck over at their own blue-line without any forechecking pressure whatsoever (exaggeration). I credit the coaching staff for their improvement in that aspect. However I don't think they've played a team that forechecks as hard as the Bruins do. It'll be a good test.

Huddy: He has the D playing as a unit, they have each others back. They were a very disparate group to begin the year, playing as individuals. Early in the season when the Jets took possession in their own end the entire team used to rush up the ice like bats out of hell and single turnovers proved costly as a result because there was no backup. Now the Jets D always back each other up, and this is no more blatantly obvious than when play is behind the goal line in their own end. Whenever a d-man has the puck in the corner, his partner moves toward the opposite side to ensure an outlet if there is trouble; they just reverse the flow of the play and then move it out. So solid. The breakouts are also quick and crisp.

Vincent: In charge of the forwards, he has them head-manning the puck efficiently on breakouts near every time. His special teams work is showing benefits as well. On offense they pass the puck and work to also create passing opportunities for each other. They are creative with the puck, but only to an extent and as a result are clearly intentionally throwing many more pucks at the net and are grinding it out in front for rebounds. Think of how many goal mouth scrambles they caused in front of Ward last night; they could have scored a few more against Carolina if given a bounce or two down low. They've now actually out shot the opposition the past few games.

Noel: Has the team working as a cohesive unit. At times they looked like the Red Wings of old last night, they were literally advancing the puck offensively in waves via an efficient puck possession game, in wave after wave. They dominated the game momentum last night for at least forty minutes. They are also playing VERY WELL in the neutral zone without the puck, are cutting off passing lanes, are trapping effectively.

If the Jets play this sort of a team game again tonight they can beat anyone, including Boston.
Excellent assessment Gump. I agree totally. When you also add in the improvement in both Bogo and Buff, Huddy (and the entire coaching staff) deserve a huge thumbs up.

I really like what Huddy has done with the defense.

Do you have any idea how many people wanted Julien fired last year or let go after the playoffs? It wasn't until the conference finals that the thought of Boston winning the cup with him behind the bench was brought up.

I'm not going to go and read your post, but I do kind of like knowing which posters here on the Jet's board only hold the Jets as their "B" team.

Like you said, loyalty is important. I like knowing who is 100% loyal to the Jets.

Why does it matter to you in the slightest? I've been a Rangers fan for many, many years and that's not going to change. I love the Jets and I'm glad they're back, but like you said, loyalty is important. Loyalty does not mean dumping your team when something else shiny comes along. So I have two teams to cheer for. If you don't like it, I don't care.

Only against Boston would they be considered my "B" team. Boston was my favorite team when the Jets 1.0 were here. On my behalf, I do follow the Jets as much as anyone on this board, so take it how you will.

It's not like I'd be disappointed if Boston lost tonight. It's pretty much a win either way.

Years of going to Jets games when 1/2 the arena was cheering for the Leafs or Habs made me automatically dislike anyone that doesn't cheer for their hometown team.

Well, I cheer for my hometown team every single game, except when the Rangers play them. When the Rangers play them, I cheer for both teams to get to OT, upon which I want the team thats lower in the standings to take the extra point. If you dislike me for this, go ahead, it won't hurt my feelings.

I'm a STH and have missed a total of one Jets game on a night when I was sick. Just because I cheer for the Rangers as my primary team, doesn't mean I'm not a rabid fan of the Jets.
