(You'll never catch me sayin that again because im a Canuck 4 life and i genuinely dislike 29 other franchises... However, i live in the Peg, i feel the emotion and this inception year is special but my heart and soul will always belong to the Canucks. )
Lets hope for OT !!
Heritage Classic -- please get it -- and make it against VAN CITY !!
Really looking forward to this game, just hope that the entire Jets team shows up and plays their hearts out.
I think they will. Aside from a playoff game, given the circumstances here, the games don't get any bigger or more important than this one. And with who we're playing, that Jets room is gunna be cranked up and ready to go. I hope.
First off this GDT is epic.........I was laughing so hard when I was reading through it
To the game at hand........I said it yesterday in the pre-game thread and I will say it again today, this has the possibility of being the best game of the year in the sense that Vancouver will not want to lose 3 in a row at home so I expect their top players to show up big time tonight and since they do have 90 points as a team already then we can expect a formidable opponent. Also I really think our team is going to come out flying tonight....After our December run the first game on the road was the steaming load of %$#@ we laid up in Montreal when they blew us out and then we no showed in Toronto the next night and that set the tone for a brutal January. Fast forward to today and I think our team firmly gets that making the playoffs is going to come down to us being above .500 (5-4 or 5-3-1) on the last 9 road games. I think our team is poised to get the job done since we have been a .500 team on the road since the beginning of February (3-3). I have no idea whether that starts tonight but I do think we will get a total team effort and we will be playing with a sense of urgency that the situation requires. Our team has been on a journey this season and have grown before our eyes………the next step is to become a good road team and I think they are ready.
The good news is this game was probably penciled in as a clean loss for us by most so any result that nets us points is a huge plus.
I am 100% certain our team is going to show up tonight and we are going to play really well it will all depend on what Vancouver team shows up..........If it’s the juggernaut that went to the cup final last spring and has amassed 90 points to date this year we will be in deep but I still think it would be a classic...........if it’s the Canucks that have looked lethargic over the past 5 games then we could win this one.
we need a minimum of 2 points on this road trip and I would love to get them tonight..........GO JETS GO
Another mission the powers have called me away
Another time to carry the colors again
My motivation an oath I've sworn to defend
To win the honor of coming back home again
No explanation will matter after we begin
Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within
My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend
You will discover a war you're unable to win
Some of you here seem to be underrating a bit the Jets prospects for tonight, IMO. They will win it.
If the Jets play like they have of late, front to back, there is no reason that we can't win this game. It's going to be a barn burner for sure, and I'm going to be tired at my early Friday morning meeting, but I don't care. This is going to be a doozy!
