The Sportsnet hockey gab guys have spoken, and what they have to say about the Winnipeg Jets is not flattering.
To begin, Doug MacLean, John Shannon, Chris Johnston, Damien Cox, Mark Spector, et al have declared the locals to be the 25th-ranked outfit in the National Hockey League. They grade general manager Kevin (The Possum) Cheveldayoff’s off-season snoozefest as B “for boring,” according to hyphenated scribe Jordan Heath-Rawlings.
But wait! The B becomes a C for the “shabby way they’ve handled Evander Kane.”
Then there’s this from our hyphenated writer:
“Will the Jets have a storyline to watch this season that actually takes place on the ice and involves a competition to secure a playoff spot? Or will it all be bitterness and hot takes by mid-February? Stay half-heartedly tuned in to find out!”
“Yawn. That’s my prediction for the 2014-15 Jets. Yawn,” writes our hyphenated writer.”
I should point out that young Mr. Hyphenate’s credibility takes a huge whack when he tells us that Dustin Byfuglien still patrols the blueline, but that major gaffe aside, his piece and the rating of the “experts” is a serious dose of tough love. Alas, it would seem that the boys at Sportsnet are merely parroting what the majority of shinny observers beyond the borders of Jets Nation think about Team No Respect.
