True , but probably even less so this time.

Why would you ever call in sick to watch a bunch of suits dissecting trades on television?

Because of the intangibles (house to myself, day off, get to stay home and not work, don't have to go in to work,etc).

You sure that 4.2% sh% isn't evidence against you on his production being him and not poor puck luck....

Especially when his career #s are around 15%...

shooting percentages rarely change dramatically unless by luck, natural variance or small sample size

Jets are bottom 10 for sure, maybe bottom 5 in the league when it comes to the centre position - I could name 20 teams that have a better first line centre and better centre depth than us quite easily. It's the biggest reason for lack of scoring. Antro might be back on this team next season though(approx. $2 million per imo) for lack of a better option.

What has frustrated me most about this team are Pav's medicocre goaltending, lack of production from Jokinen, and lack of scoring from the third line. For that last one, remember when we had visions on this board of rolling out a third line that could actually score goals. Ha! Here we are two months into the season, and one of those third liners has been traded, another has produced little offensively all season (Antropov), the third hasn't shown improvements in his game that we expected and is a turnover machine (Burmi). Even switching up the members of the third line hasn't helped. It's still a deadzone offensively.

I still think Burmi Antro and Poni would have had a decent year as a 3rd line but because Olli has struggled to play well in the top 6 and Welly has been a gong show it forced 3rd line assets into top 6 positions and we are back to where we were last year with a 3rd line that rarely looks the same shift to shift let alone game to game.......organizational depth is a big issue.

That it is. Looks like it will take a few years to sort itself out, barring some free agent signings.

The max for next season is 12.86 million. Yeah no chance.

As much as I can't stand Corey Fairy, and I think people will be greatly disappointed in him since they will be expecting a 50g 90pt guy when he is a 35-40g, 70-75pt guy, I still think he would be a very nice signing for the Jets. His little girlish high voice drives people nuts, he works hard, can contribute offensively obviously, goes to the tough areas of the ice, be a nice fit in the top 6. But he is no franchise player. 5-6 years at 7.5 million is as high as I'd go. He is not a playmaking twoway centreman that makes his teammates better like a Getzlaf. Parise got 7.5, so that's about what you would pay for Fairy.

I would pass at that level......it just feels like a old school leafs, Rangers, Flyers thing to do and does it ever really work out? Other than Chara who was a game changer for Boston I think you get yourself in more trouble than not by going for home runs with UFA's especially with the cap going down short term....Hello Buffalo!

It would be nice if Boston let Horton walk (doubtful). He would be perfect on RW with Kane.

Oiler fan coming in peace

What would your opinion be regarding the following proposal:

Yakupov + Edm 1st rd pick 2013
For
Kane + WPG 1st rd pick 2013

Edm's pick is looking like top 3 at this point......

Wouldn't do it. Kane, for all his peculiarities, is a competitor. Yak is starting to look like a flake. I'm not surprised to see oiler fans roaming the boards though Oil have major issues. With all the RNH talk going on you almost have to wonder if something could happen with him too! Personally I think they may have done permanent damage to his career. Clearly the shoulder is still a problem and the confidence is shot to the point where he is a liability.

Him, Clarkson and Burrows will probably top Chevy's list.

Ryder, Perry, Brunner and perhaps Larose should be on there too.

Some Bruins fans I know would like to sign him but truly think they won't be able to fwiw.

i wouldn't i expect Kane to be a player on par with your average 1st overall pick, I believe he's that good and has that sort of skill set.

Channelcat, Nuge has been fine. Yes his offensive numbers have gone down but every other part of his game has improved (except face offs). I'm not worried about Nuge at all. His shoulder might be messed up - and Oilers should take care of it.... But as for as his game, he's creating chances, he's going up against top opponents and all that. Not worried about him at all....

Your comment about the Oilers and the team being a mess is valid. The kids are good but we are too small up front and suck everywhere else. Id love for the team to build around Hall, Ebs, Nuge, Yak and Schultz and fill in pieces but it won't happen unless we trade the kids. Thus the proposal above

Desperation in Oiler land and no visible light at the end of the tunnel.

I don't understand the Jets fans that are intent on getting younger, tanking or going the Edmonton route.
