Both the Leafs and Jets are pretty bad teams, but the way this thread reads, you'd think this is a game between the Gretzky era Oilers and the expansion Senators with the talk of how horrible a team the opposition is.

Look in the mirror fellas, the Jets are pretty terrible too. And even if the Jets are significantly better than the leafs, is that really something you as a fan base are proud of? Being better than a terrible team?

I think the key for the Jets in this game will be containing the 2nd and 3rd lines for Toronto. Obviously the top line will need to be watched, but the MacArthur-Grabovski-Kulemin line can be deadly, and Kadri and Frattin have some good chemistry on the 3rd line.

At home we also need to play the matchups. The Jets get last change, so Noel will need to get Kane's line out against Holzer, and attack Kostka when they can. He's played well but is an offence first type of player and that can be exploited. Phaneuf has also done pretty well on d this season, having watched most of their games.

Leafs play a much simpler game on the road. Won't be easy.

In any case, this whole argument could go in circles all day. I seriously doubt anything will change between our boards, and that's fine. I kinda enjoy there wars we're having every time we have to play each other.
I was in Toronto last year for the first Jet's game at the Air Canada Centre. There was a pre game tribute to the return of NHL hockey to Winnipeg which was given a huge ovation from the fans (and not just the 10% or so that were wearing Jet's Jerseys )

All the ribbing about Laffs and Thrashers is just in good nature. Stop taking it so seriously.

Don't even talk about that... It seems like every single time it starts snowing over here the buses and trains just stops working. And I'm not saying at first snow of the year, I'm talking every week when new snow comes down. Then the tabloids screams out "Snow Chaos!"

It's all about not being worse than a terrible team.

Agreed. I'll take my leave then. If the rivalry on the ice is as close to intense as it is on these board, it should be a good game tonight.

Just found out I'm going to the Pitt game next Friday, which makes me even more fired up for today's game.

Go Jets Go!

After reading all the posts about respect, I just have one question.

Who in hell would want respect from a leafs fan?

This GDT is a ****ing joke.

The Jets have played 29 other teams and we never have problems with Trolls in out GDTs.

I personally don't want to see Peluso or anyone else fight Orr tonight. Looking forward to seeing a person with concussion problems fight is disgusting in my mind. How quickly everyone forgot the two summers ago with the enforcer deaths.

In this day and age goons and staged fights are ridiculous. Actually scratch that, they have always been ridiculous. The only fight that I "enjoyed" this year is when Wright stepped up after a dirty hit on a teammate.

I haven't looked at their GDT but I hope that it isn't more of the same instigated by Jets fans.

The Jets 2.0 consistently losing to Canadian teams has to stop.

They need to get to Reimer right away.

Hating toronto is a canadian thing, they should just suck it up and accept. In a round about way it can be even viewed as a compliment.

My favorite insult was the "winnipeg is the uber cold version of hell". Only the strong can thrive in a prairie winter, the rest move to Toronto.

Totally agree. It's just a hockey board, boys. Let's have some fun, enjoy some guests once in a while, give 'em hell if they misbehave... and if it goes too far, the Mods will step in.
Welcome Eli. Hope you make the playoffs this year, just not on our backs!

The title of their Pre-GDT says it all about who instigated what.

I was in Calgary for their first game there. During a commercial delay they played a video 'welcoming back' the Jets to the league - what they showed were a series of the Flames best moments playing the Jets. Scoring goals on various Jets goalies, Flames winning fights against Jets.

Of course it's all in good nature. It's just hockey after all.

Well gee, thanks. I would like to see Winnipeg in them too, mainly because I know your crowd would be bat-**** insane and fun to watch in the playoffs. But as you said, not at the expense of my Leafs lol.

I highly doubt he would be cleared to play by team doctors if it was a huge risk. Would you rather have Orr fight Thorburn?

I would rather not see Orr fight anyone.

I'd rather watch hockey and if HOCKEY players fight due to on-ice shenanigans than fine.

If someone is clear of concussion symptoms I don't think team doctors would have the right to keep someone from playing. It doesn't mean there isn't any long term damage or elevated risk of reoccurance.

I'm jacked up for this game. I know it'll be crazy at the MTSC, can't wait.
I think a Luongo chant is in order.
