Sure this has nothing to do with the Leafs, but it's too good of a story to pass up.
Yes, I know the Jets left our fair city and headed to the desert 16 years ago, but they ceased to be the Winnipeg Jets in July of 1996 when title of the team was transferred to the new owners. They had their own management team put in place. Yes, the players made the move (or at least some of them) but they were wearing different jerseys and played in a different country. Teemu was already gone and Alexi Zhamnov never made the trip. It didn’t take long for most of the players who wore the Jets jersey to move on to other organizations.
I’ve always known that people were out there who refused to let go, and you’d think the fact that we have a team named the Jets back in town would put that to rest, but apparently that’s not enough for those of you still living in the past.
There is no doubt in my mind that had Winnipeg won a Cup or two, this guy would be calling for the banners to be hung in MTS Arena.

Why it's Matt Carle.
Nope. Word is he ended the season with an injured hand/wrist, and frankly if Joey Crabb is playing the tourney then I don't care about it.
Loser Domi tells you how to take meh and turn it into woohoo.

Except for Brodeur, he's still old. And fat.
