059: That was a jet flying by

Can you believe how long it’s been since the last episode of the Jets Hockey Podcast? Neither can we but we’re excited to be back on the air to bring you another season of uncensored, unauthorized fan generated content about your Winnipeg Jets.

Today’s show brought to you by OffsideGear.com – a great source for unique Winnipeg Jets fan merchandise.

We’re taking a more informal approach to the show this season, but still making it professional. We’ll be brining back Vargas Vegas Picks from our friend Jon Varga, along with some exclusive interviews and possibly even a “pointless hockey minute” from a special person.

As expected we talk about the Winnipeg Jets. We talk about Jacob Trouba, Mark Scheifele and the amazing performance of the rookies. We touch base on Dustin Byfuglien making the US Olympic squad and the fact that Andrew Ladd is the lone Jets player invited to tryout for Team Canada for the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia this February. Based on the way the Jets are playing, we’ve been wondering if we’ll move up in line for our Winnipeg Jets season tickets. What do you think?

St. John’s IceCaps and the newest addition to the Jets organization, Ontario Reign, also get friendly mentions. Heck, Roberto Luongo even gets a mention in the show today. It’s one you’ll want to tune in to.

Oh yeah, of course who could forget the guys predictions. They were one of the most talked about features from the show last year.

The Winnipeg Jets are headed out on a four-game road trip and we knock out the estimated 1-3 record as follows:
