Winnipeg Jets tickets still in top demand

The Winnipeg Jets are nine games in to the season and sitting one win shy of a .500 record. Are Winnipeg Jets fans concerned about the progress of the team this season? Do you think they’re jumping off the bandwagon?

Not in a million years.

The team is just 2-3 in the last five games – all of which have been on home ice – a venue the first season that was almost impossible for the Jets to lose at.

“The problem right now is that we’re trying to put skill ahead of work – we’ve got it backwards,” said head coach Claude Noel.

The fact is that no matter what the performance is on the ice, Winnipeg Jets tickets are still in high demand. I know I’d be game for seeing a game in person. The real question is how the Jets will turn things around and if they’ll be present in the post-season this year. Remember, this is year three of the team, and the first chance that season ticket holders truly have a chance to get out of their commitment. If you recall there were 3 and 5 year season ticket commitments made when the team wanted to relocate to Winnipeg from Atlanta.

There’s no doubt in my mind that if the team doesn’t perform on the ice, a few season tickets will come up for grabs – and we’ll slowly move up the wait list – but they’ll still be the hottest and hardest tickets to come by in the NHL; don’t you agree?
