    Thought I'd fire up a Pre-game thread - time to put that last stinker behind us.

    Aela: you're on deck for the GDT!

    Looking forward to seeing yet another line shuffling - again, this COULD be interesting:

    Ladd - Little - Seto (good hustle, some grit, and scoring)
    Kane - Scheifele - Wheeler (some speed here, with one shooter and two playmakers that can also shoot - I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with this)

    Jets lose 6-2. Ovy with a hatrick.

    Okay, I'm gonna see my dad the day after tomorrow. He's a Caps fan. I'd REALLY like to be able to rub it in his face that we beat them, especially since this will probably be the last time in a while that I see him.

    Bounce back game. Jets make it back to 500 after their long opening home stand.

    Give me hope!
    I want to win, but once again I find myself just asking for a complete effort.
    I think this is the crux of the problem for this team. No long are fans demanding wins, we're demanding intensity, effort and commitment.

    I want to see players that care.
    I want to see 12 Evander Kanes, and six Zach Bogosians.
    Those two show up, every game. Have they been great every game? No. But when I watch them at least I can tell they care.

    I don't like James Wright as a player. I don't think he's good enough at hockey. But at least I know he's trying. If Wheeler, or Setoguchi gave the effort James did, we'd be a very good team.

    I don't care what the lines are, I don't care about chemistry. This team needs to show some pride.
    I don't care of Noel has lost the room, go out and play for yourself. Winners aren't content with being embarrassed on their home ice. If these players can't give a full effort, we need to scrap this team.
    If we lose because our dump and chase game doesn't work, okay. At least we're losing because of systems, there is no excuse for losing because of effort.

    I think this game comes down to special teams. If the Jets take 4+ minor penalties, they will lose. Neither team is great defensively or great 5on5.

    Washington's power play is horrifyingly good.

    Gotta be careful on the penalties.

    Wright with a Hat Trick. :sarcasm:

    This line also has size to go with the speed. Do you take away Kane's speed? Or Wheeler's? Scheif might get lots of free space on a line like this. Kane and Wheeler had a fantastic game centered by Joki against the Caps (the one we won) early last year.

    Sure they're big.. Unfortunately Scheif and Wheels may as well be 5 feet tall each right now, with the way they're using their bodies. :sarcasm:

    Would like to see us come out and give a darn tomorrow night. Go :jets go!!

    I will have my vCash riding on a complete team effort and a big win by the Jets.

    Of course that means on Thursday against Nashville the boys will be too busy spreading their shoulders and patting themselves on the back to make it happen twice in a row :sarcasm:

    8-6 Winnipeg. Ovechkin with an own-goal.
     
  14. 3-1 Caps. Monty looks good but we suck as per usual.

    Is Monty starting?
     
  16. Someone said in the PGT or some other thread that Noelle declared Monty starter. I could be wrong or they could have reported wrong :help:

    I think they were just making a confident prediction based on what they heard in the Noel interview

    Go Jets Go! Extract a measure of vengeance for the Caps embarrassing you in front of your home crowd (including a certain very sensible guy on the second night of the double header) and kick Cap ass!!!


    All in with my insignificant little mound of digi-$

    Enough with the stupid ****, Jets. Win this ****ing game. I'm tired of the half-hearted, lackadaisical efforts.

    Kick some butt tonight, please. Every last player needs to show up with their "A" game.

    If all the Jets had Kane's compete level, we'd be planning the parade route now.

    Edit: I went to bet on the Jets and the game isn't up yet - WTH?
