069: Not just an awkward position – Jets Hockey Podcast – For fans of the Winnipeg Jets

It’s been an impressive run by the Winnipeg Jets since the last show so we had to sit down before the Olympic break to catch up. We opted not to go live tonight, but will do so again after the Olympics. Catch an upcoming show Jets Hockey Podcast show live.

We like to send out quick notes to our listeners like question changes, sweet Jets offers, contests and more so get on the list and you’ll get them too.

Last week we asked our listeners if the NHL is effectively killing the outdoor game. Of course some confusion existed, but it was meant in that they were killing the excitement and anticipation of the game.

This week it’s a new question for you – actually two; will the Winnipeg Jets make the playoffs? And would the Jets be better moving their AHL team to Winnipeg as opposed to Thunder Bay or somewhere else?

We actually talked at great length about relocating the AHL franchise back to Winnipeg and how it could possibly work in the market. Of course right at the end, Jeff finally admitted to the real reason as to why it wouldn’t likely ever happen, but it’s definitely a good thought and great discussion ensued.

Chat happened around the Arctic Ice article discussing the thoughts of buying out Ondrej Pavelec and moving on. Ryan Miller from Buffalo for Winnipeg’s Ondrej Pavelec…now that’d be the trade fans would talk about.

We recapped the previous games which saw Jeff go 3-1, and left the final game prediction before the February Olympic break.
