That's why you shouldn't have so many Canadians on your roster.

In all seriousness though, I didn't expect that. Didn't we keep him in the press box all year because we were too afraid of someone picking him off waivers should we send him to the Rock? Looks like no one in the NHL was that interested... or the KHL offer was very lucrative.

I liked him too but its time for the youth movement. Postma and Redmond will need to show their worth. Has Festerling re-signed?

Good. Flood was nothing more than an injury emergency sub in, not sure what was seen in him that had him on the roster all year. Best of the luck in the KHL, but he had no business being in Winnipeg.

He probably wanted a full time no press box gig.
Cant blame him.

Best of luck Mark.

So as not to get into a Flood of Trouba with the Jets fans, perhaps he needs Tobias a Poni before he dons the Mittens to fly to the cold, cold KHL.



It's all I got. Sorry.

Good luck to him in the KHL but he wasn't going to make the NHL full time.

I agree. Not good enough for the NHL.

It's a Winnipeg Jets tradition!

Admittedly though, he was like a man possessed in the AHL playoffs last year.

Flood isn't an NHL player, so it's good to see he won't be near the Jets anymore.

Yup. Not to cut a guy down just as he's no longer here (once a Jet, always a Jet), but if he is a regular in our starting 6, then we probably aren't finishing in the top 8 in the East. Our training camp would be stronger with him than without him, but ideally he would probably be our bubble/7th guy at best. Unless we dealt one of our 5 starting locks on D, one of Flood, Postma, & Clitsome would be getting cut after TC. Which of those three would be the best to lose?

I am disappointed by this, I thought he was a great guy especially in the locker room. *handshakes*

His game wasn't complete, but he had some strides when he was working with Huddy.

I would cry but I can't open the flood gates.

Best of luck in KHL Mark

I got to meet him once. He seemed like a nice guy and I wish him the best in Russia.

Meech was awesome in the AHL play-offs and has a lot of value as a leader on that team, my guess is he's okay with being an AHL call-up, whereas Flood was looking for more.

Good luck to Mark, great guy and hope he has success overseas.

Flood did everything that was asked of him with the Jets. He often played well after sitting out very long stretches. Not a lot of room at the back end with the Jets. I hope he has success in the KHL.

3 players off to the KHL it is looking more and more like the Jets were icing an AHL roster at times last season.
