Title: The Winnipeg Jets Thread
Post by: Pinus or Vid or...????? on March 15, 2019, 12:14:34 am
They defeated the Boston Bruins and remain in first place. However, this Jets team is not as good as the 2017-18 version.  With the loss of Armia and Enstrom, and the injuries to Byfuglien and Morrissey, the team will be hard pressed to duplicate last year's success.

Why would a team whose best feature is their geographical centrism, named after planes warrant its own thread.

At minimum an original 6 team, an MLB team in a major eastern city, or an NFL team should have its own thread.  Actually all of them before the WJs.

I think the lack of urgency in the playoff race in the central has made them take the foot off the gas a little bit in preparation for playoffs. The shots on goal they allow is definitely concerning, but once Buff and Morrissey are back, they'll find another gear.

Not to mention Laine is finally coming together at just the right time.

What the **** is going on with the Jets? Laine can't play defense, Scheifele and Wheeler have been going through the motions, and the Myers/Kulikov pairing is getting top minutes, as a bottom pairing defensive pair.

Most concerning of all is coaching. Maurice keeps putting out Myers, Kulikov, and Laine to protect a one goal game. He also does not hold players accountable.
Title: Re: The Winnipeg Jets Thread
Post by: Bubbermiley on March 30, 2019, 05:54:28 am
Morrissey and Byfuglien were injured. The Trouba pairing was just on. Myers/Kulikov was the best option, other than a time out, which would have been the better choice in retrospect.
But I think Laine's defensive game has improved dramatically.
Buff plays tonight, so hopefully that gives them a boost. I just wish Maurice would try Bogdan Kiswhatevervich over Morrow. His analytics are dramatically better.
And Morrow sucks.
Should be a good game. Unfortunately  I can just watch highlights tomorrow on my phone, as I'm out of the country
 Watching on the PVR when I get home won't be the same.
I'll be back for playoffs though and Ia season ticket partner so I'm going to have to go to a playoff game. Hopefully there will be more than two.

I had an argument with somebody once because I said they named themselves after Bobby "Golden Jet" Hull... who was a major signing when they started in the old WHA.

Washington sucked as they finished the season last year. San Jose has lost 7 of the last 8; Vegas has lost the last 5; Nashville is also a train wreck. Anything can happen once playoffs start. They may well be knocked out in the first round but they have to play the games first.
But Hellebuyck looked good (I hear).

A huge game tonight against the Wild, and the Jets rest their #1 goalie, and put in AHL backup Eric Comrie, who proceeds to let in 4 goals within th3 first 30 minutes.  Put a fork in them.  The Jets are done.
Title: Re: The Winnipeg Jets Thread
Post by: Bubbermiley on April 03, 2019, 06:57:52 am
It was wise not to burn out Hellebuyck like Maurice has burned out Scheifele and Wheeler. There's no way Comrie will be playing the playoffs unless Hellebuyck is injured (in which case, yes, they're done). They looked like the better team against the Wild. They were just out-goalied.
The inability to score is a concern. Ehlers and Laine's regression has become an emergency. Things can change quickly in the playoffs and anything can happen.
But yeah, they may be turning Maurice out. It's concerning.

Well the Jets managed to squeak into the playoffs, with a final win against Arizona.  In the end, it was a turtle race for the Central Division crown, and Nashville edged Winnipeg out by one point.  This means that the Jets will host the high flying St.Louis Blues, and will have their work cut out for them.

It could be worse I guess. We could be the Leafs.

The Jets have been terrible for the second half of the season, after leading the Western Conference.  Secondly, those odds are bizarre.  Nashville won the Division, and has a higher probability of winning the Cup than the Jets.  I guess Vegas does not know anything about the NHL, as even Washington (defending Cup champions), who won their division and #2 seed, is behind Boston in odds.

Not anymore...   the disparity between 1st place and whom they play is much less than the old conference playoff format.  Although, coincidentally, the matchups are exactly what they would have been in the west if they were going by conference.  Not so in the eastern conference.

The Jets also won 3 out of 4 matchups against the Preds this year... 

There's no reason the Preds should be favoured above the Jets, other than end of the year records, which don't always translate into playoff success.

Incorrect. The #1 team in the Division plays the Wildcard team, which is either #4 or lower ranked in their division.  The #2 team plays the #3 team in the division. There, the Division winner plays a team with a weaker record, than the #2 team in their division.

Quote

The Jets and Predators are not playing each other in the first round, and may not play at all.  So that is irrelevant.

Quote

The Preds won the division, therefore should be favored over any other team in the Central division.  It makes no sense to have the #2 team ranked higher than the #1 team.

Jets record at All-Star Break: 31-15-2
Jets record since All-Star break: 16-15-3

Yes they have struggled.  They had a comfortable lead in the Central Division, and were at one point #1 in the Western Conference.  Unfortunately, they lost two of their best defensemen (Morrissey and Byfuglein) for most of the last 2 months, and Laine has been cold as ice.  The top line has also not been performing well.

Thankfully it looks like Morrissey will be finally ready for the playoffs, and that could make a big difference.  Jets also have to hope Hellebuyck plays very well, and their top six forwards start producing, as their bottom six have been great. It could come down to Laine regaining his goal-scoring prowess to lead the Jets past the St.Louis Blues.

Game 1 of the playoffs went exactly as I predicted it would for the Jets. Start off strong, take a lead into the 3rd period, and blow the lead, as the top line is gassed, and the bottom lines are not playing as much as they should.  The Jets will have to find a way to play 60 minutes of hockey or this could be a short series.

The Blues have made it to the Finals 3 times (1968,69,70).

The post-season has been cruel to the Blues throughout history, as they ahve has some really good teams over the years. The team just never manged to have much success in the playoffs.

St.Louis is my pi k to reach the Conference Finals. I think a Calgary vs St.Louis match is the most likely scenario.

The Jets finally **** Mr Binnington, in a big way.   Very good game for the Jets.


Meanwhile the Tampa Bay Lightning are on the brink of elimination.  The Columbus Blue Jackets had never won 3 playoff games in the same year before, and now they've done it against a team that had a historically great season.  The Lightning are in huge trouble.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are also in huge trouble, down 3-0 in their series against the Islanders.  The Islanders actually had the better season, but the Penguins are perennial powerhouses and it seems strange seeing them on the verge of being swept in the first round.

Jets win in overtime to even the series!

Islanders sweep Crosby and the Penguins!  Jordan Eberle and Robin Lehner were dynamite for the Islanders.

And most shocking-- maybe one of the biggest shocks in hockey history-- the Columbus Blue Jackets completed their sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning.  The Lightning had a record-tying 62 wins in the regular season, but couldn't win a single game in the playoffs.

I only caught the final few minutes of the game, but BOBROVSKY WAS EVERYWHERE!!  :o

With the score 4-3 and over 2 minutes to go, the Lightning pulled the goalie for an extra attacker! The pressure was on! It was a shooting gallery, but Bobrovsky held the line! And the Blue Jackets scored empty net goals to seal it.

Bobrovsky! You're the top cop on the force!

Coincidentally I was recently trying to find out the origin of that phrase and whether the version I first heard, "If you **** the bull, you get the horn", was the original. Inconclusive results though. It didn't really come to prominence until the teacher in the Breakfast Club said it to Judd Nelson. That was the "mess with" version.

But Vegas scares me and I don't like Vegas, even though they're comparatively stacked with Winnipeg boys. I don't want to see them win the cup. They need to pay some dues first. And Vegas as a city is gross and repulsive.

People think of Ovechkin as a great sniper and forget that he's also a 6'3, 240+ pound wall of muscle. He's a beast.  I read that the kid he fought was 190 pounds. An absolute specimen in his physical prime fighting an 18 year old who's 50 pounds smaller than him is just a terrible mismatch and it's no wonder he got hurt.

St Louis was one of the best teams during the second half of the season, and I think everybody knew the Jets were in for a tough series.


Aside from Columbus shocking the hockey world, the Islanders, Hurricanes, Stars, and Avalanche have also been impressive so far.  I didn't expect Carolina to give Washington much of a challenge, but they have made a series of this.  The Stars are giving Nashville a real fight too.

On the other hand, while Tampa Bay is certainly the biggest bomb in the playoffs, the Penguins and Flames are not far behind. Calgary still has a chance to turn things around, but they haven't looked like a #1 seed, or a team that can win 3 straight.  They better get it together fast. "Johnny Hockey" has certainly not been "Johnny Playoffs" so far.

Well the Jets lost to the St.Louis Blues, and were eliminated from the playoffs.  It was a depressing game, as the Jets deviated from their usual "play hard for 40 minutes, then burnout in the final 20" game plan, to "lets not show up for the first 50 minutes, and go all out in the last 10." Unfortunately the Blues took to a 3-0 lead, and won the game 3-2.

Winnipeg joins Calgary and Tampa Bay, as teams who were favored to win, but choked. I will now cheer on Columbus.
