Sorry Lync, but that **** is funny

Its not that I mind the losing though. Its just the utter lack of anything resembling a killer instinct that drives me nuts. The lack of any sort of - I don't know, "fire in the belly." I mean to come out and lay such a big egg against a team ripe for the picking like Florida is hard to digest...

anyway, off to bed with me!

GO JETS GO, lets get up and at them tomorrow!

Seriously, y'all.... Being a Jets fan is just like being a Thrashers fan. Nothing much has changed for me. And I'm still looking forward to the next game! GO JETS GO!

This team badly, badly needs a Dustin Brown/Mike Richards type. Ladd has it, but no one else on the team does. Even when we win, it's usually on just a lot of raw talent rather than true grit. Guys like Buff and Kane are really good, and I like them, but they play really relaxed whether we're up 4 or down 4. We need more guys like Ladd who battle regardless of what the score is. (Albeit, even he isn't quite there yet either).

Also, I wonder if we can package up a few guys and flip Pavelec for a goalie. I don't hate him, but I don't love him either. He's got to be better, and he is seeming to be plateauing already early in his career. Seems like he may never make the jump from a .900/3.00 backup to a sub 3.00, .920 bonafide starter.

Ladd-Antropov-Little is an amazing line right now.

We are going to beat Tampa tomorrow night just to confuse matters further.

We are only 1 point out of a playoff spot! as long as we hang around until Byfug/Bogo get back, we'll be alright. I can see Chevy dangling a 2nd or 3rd for some immediate help on D. Did anyone see Wellwood say "Hamburgers" .. HAHAHAH

That was absolutely brutal.

The Jets need to forget that game ever happened & start fresh against Tampa.

That was one of the most empty arenas I have ever seen.
Florida will be the next team to move their franchise after Phoenix.

It would be nice to see Pavelec take a step forward and avoid these meltdowns, especially with a long-term deal. Hopefully this can be his mulligan of the 2013 season.

Pavelec should try catching the puck for once instead of throwing it back in to the slot.

Also, this team misses Byfuglien far more than anyone complaining about his roving style would ever believe. They had complete control of the puck during the 5-on-3 and didn't open up a single shooting lane, which is completely pathetic.

The players were not moving their feet during that 5-on-3. They were standing around passing to each other

Exactly. Byfuglien would have been more creative than that. He knows how to create space offensively.

agreed....its a different team without buff.

bogosian is also sorely missed, but as goes pavalec, so goes this team.

that is scary.

You Winnipeg folks see what us Thrashers fans dealt with for years, periods of strong play followed up by a streak of really bad games.

This franchise is terribly inconsistent unfortunately.

But I'll be there at the game tomorrow night ready to see my team in person for the first time since March

I remember how I had thoughts of competing not for a playoff spot-- but a home playoff spot.

Oh those were the days of naive youth. Huzzah to the roaring last-weeks!

That was a brutal game to watch. I almost feel asleep a few times during this one. Maybe they will surprise us against Tampa tomorrow night.

Following a team that is so inconsistent is very frustrating so we know your pain.
It is going to take time to see this team become a legitimate contender.

Even in the 80's & 90's during the Jets 1.0 we never ever got to see a good playoff run.

It sucks to keep saying that we will do better next year over & over without it ever happening.

The Bombers have been the same way for the past 20 plus years.

I gotta say, I want to see more from Zachy Red! You'd have no idea that this was his first NHL game!

They need generate more traffic on net.

I read above that we need more guys that battle, I think that Jokinen definitely fits that mold. It's hard to believe that the guy is 34. I can't believe how much people *****ed about the guy. He's ****ing awesome!

How about my man Jimmy Wright! Loved to see him step up for Redmond, he should have just taken his helmet off. Reds also looked good out there today, which is awesome to see. Not even going to comment on the rest... It's all been said. Let's hope for a more exciting game tomorrow, if anything.

It wasn't a smart play by Wright. He negated a double minor penalty to the Panthers. Sometimes you have to think before you act.

You guys think you had a bad night? I'm also a Rangers fan and I suffered through that game too! Even worse, both the Jets and Rangers face Tampa Bay for their next game and TB is pretty potent right now. Could be another couple of depressing days for me.

Your joking right? Who cares about the two minute powerplay when a teammate is cheap shotted. Wright did the right thing.

Coming back down to earth is no fun. After last weekend, I started hoping that just maybe this team had taken that magical step forward and was now going to contend. But reality is probably closer to that 10-13 spot that most predicted. I'm okay with that if we see movement in the right direction. Other than the obvious how badly we need Buff and Bogo, there are still lots of needs. But the thing that worries me the most at this moment is Pavs. This team needs a goalie to back stop them not not finish games with a .848 save %.

No sometomes you just act. I'm ok with the sawoff. Wright did what he had to do.
