I find it interesting that the moment Burke gets the boot, they actually DO exhibit some truculence.
Cherry last night stated that if Carlyle (or a reasonable facsimile) had been their coach instead of Wilson then Burke would probably still be there. He is likely correct.
One thing I noted about the Jets on Saturday; Ottawa looked physically incapable against them for much of the game. The Jets looked like the stronger group of the two; the bigger lineup this year is paying some noticeable dividends it seems, at least it did against Ottawa yesterday.
The stars are aligning for a Jets win, I hope they show up and take advantage because this road trip that is looming over our heads will be tough
In my mind, that 9 out of 11 stretch on the road will really set the tone for this season. If they can tread water through that stretch, they'll be in decent shape with 14 of the last 23 games at home. Assuming it takes about 54 points to make the playoffs (6 games over the fake 0.500), they can't afford to finish that road stretch 3 or 4 games below 0.500. There just won't be enough time to get that back.
