Just checked the NHL standings, and my Jets are 33-16-2, first in the Central and three points behind the Flames for Conference leaders with a game in hand. It will be interesting to see if Chevy has any Aces up his sleeve, and can land us a solid 2nd line Centre. We could certainly use someone who can set up Laine.

no - I spoke to cap hit influences (but didn't directly speak to the significant impact of recent, for example, long-term McDavid/Draisaitl signings)... does railing on about Oiler management ignore key signings like those? Speaking of: you should be the guy speaking to why the Canucks have not been playing to the cap; why they have a current cap space of ~ 29 million/projected cap space of ~$10 million. Geezaz, are you waiting for a big buy at the trade deadline... will the Canucks 'fish or cut bait'?  ;D

I don't know about the Canuck's cap space but they will have some big bills when Boeser's and Petterson's rookie contracts expire. Right now they are looking pretty good, tied for a wild card spot when they were a unanimous pick to finish last in the west. Which of course could still happen but they are a fun team to watch these days. They have some gaps to fill in but no need to panic.

Good news, everyone!

Corey Perry, the cheap-shot artist from Anaheim made his season debut tonight by firing a puck in practice at two Jets players, then attempted to injure Jets star defenseman Josh Morrissey.  Did the Jets retaliate with dirty tactics?  Of course not!  The Jets lit up the Ducks with six straight goals, in a 9-3 rout of Anaheim.

The Jets are now one point back of the Calgary Flames for the #1 spot in the Western Conference.

Let's look at the Canadian teams:

Montreal: coming on strong. Will likely make the playoffs.
Toronto: looked incredible, but have fell back to Earth. May play against Montreal in playoffs
Ottawa: Horribly run organization, and the worst team in the NHL
Winnipeg: the best run club since returning in 2011. Will win the Stanley Cup.
Edmonton: Horrible owner meddling in affairs. Will only hire 80s Oiler greats. Poor McDavid.
Calgary: really turning it on. Goalie has been excellent, and Tkachuk is a stud.
Vancouver: Good young team may squeeze in, with a Wildcard birth.

I had hopes for the Canucks but the injury bug has hit again with five starters now out including two of their three best D. They don't really have the depth yet to overcome that.

Well just a couple of hours until the NHL trade deadline is past. It will be interesting to see how teams gear up for the playoffs.
