Who will dress for the Jets vs Blue Jackets exhibition game tuesday?
Like many, I will be at the Blue Jackets game on Tuesday and my buddy was telling me that he had heard the Jets would be maybe dressing Scheifele, Byfuglien and Kane for the game but I can't find any links or confirmations about this. Has anyone heard who the Jets will dress and maybe who the Jackets will bring even though im sure they will keep their superstars at their home game? Who would you all want to see dress?
Just now getting around to listening to the Illegal Curve podcast from this past Saturday. The guys were saying that the players from group "A" will be playing in Winnipeg and those in group "B" will be in Columbus. They also mentioned that lots of changes could happen.
Don't know how accurate this info is, but the IC guys are generally pretty reliable.
So it sounds like by that point, they'll be reduced to just group A & B, thus the rosters will change from what is now known as groups A & B.
We should know tonight or tomorrow who is going where on Tuesday.
The Jets will reformulate their training camp groups today as they prepare for Tuesday's double-game scenario. Winnipeg will send one team to Columbus, Ohio, to play the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena, while another squad will stay home and play the Blue Jackets at the MTS Centre
The entire lineup facing Columbus here in Winnipeg includes:
1 David Aebischer, G
4 Zach Bogosian, D
5 Mark Stuart, D
8 Alex Burmistrov, C
16 Andrew Ladd, F
20 Troy Bodie, F
24 Janne Pesonen, F
28 Patrice Cormier, F
31 Ondrej Pavelec, G
33 Dustin Byfuglien, D
38 Paul Postma, D
44 Arturs Kulda, D
45 Mark Scheifele, C
49 Ben Maxwell, C
52 Ivan Telegin, F
53 Brett Festerling, D
57 Jason Gregoire, F
76 Shayne Wiebe, F
77 Kevin Clark, F
80 Nik Antropov, F
As expected we are icing a pretty decent team in comparison to Columbus. I would be surprised if Columbus won. I was going to find a good pun to relate to one of their d-men named Grant Clitsome.. but I will abort mission and leave that one for someone more witty.
- The Blue Jackets will likely reveal the lineups for Tuesday's home-and-home with Winnipeg, but this much is certain: left winger Matt Calvert, a native of Brandon, Manitoba, will be in the lineup. "Are you kidding?" Arniel said. "Matty's parents would probably shoot me if I didn't play him up there."
