The Oilers looked solid with McDavid being a monster, this guy is going to be tough to stop.  And the Leafs spoiled the opener big time in Winnipeg and Marleau had a good game.  He might bring some added life to the Leafs this year.

Interesting facts about the Sens attendance and season tickets.



--- Quote ---The Senators only get about half their season ticket support (roughly 4,000 of an estimated 8,000 season ticket holders) from corporate outlets. In the Greater Toronto Area, the Maple Leafs have the luxury of tying up about 80 per cent of their season ticket sales (roughly 13,000 of 16,000) from corporations. The massive population of the GTA fights over the remaining tickets like chickens chasing feed.

I'm surprised that the Leafs only have 3,000 individual season ticket holders.

No surprise in Edmonton as McDavid took control of a game but under-powered Flames team.

Real surprise in Winnipeg as the young buck Jets signed star fwd Nicolai Ehlers to a 43 million dollar contract in the morning and then took a massive 43 ton dump in the evening, getting smashed to pieces by the Maple Leafs 7-2 . . . . could easily have been 10-0

Biggest problem in Winnipeg now is coaching. Leafs Babcock is a coaching colossus while Paul Maurice in Wpg. is a coaching dwarf - - -  soon coming up on the most losses by any NHL coach, in history!

Jets have never won a playoff game - either in Atlanta or now in Wpg.

They are coached to be out of position on a disturbingly consistent basis. Combine that with mediocre goal-tending and you have a problem. A big problem.

As predicted Patrick Laine, the Jets most explosive offensive force was totally neutralized by Babcock (close checking by one man, with another guy following in behind) and Dustin Byfuglian (old buffalo butt) put in a typical disinterested outing.

Jets now have their own version of Kellyanne Conway (the notorious White House liar). Brian Munz went ballistic on TSN radio morning show today - telling Troy Westwood and the other meatballs that "Its only one game" and the typical Jets problems can easily be corrected. WOW - welcome Kellyanne!

Interesting for sure jay!  

Too funny Lyle.  But he might end up becoming pretty close to the Almighty incarnated on Earth, well with a pair of skates and stick in his hand.   ;D

Lyle B. Style:
Leafs are looking like offensive dynamos. Certainly their defensive personnel can only do so much, as they're young and under-powered - but the onslaught of goals is breaking down opponents resolve.

Winnipeg teams (both Jets & Bombers) are looking more and more like succulent, soft-tissued pigs

Opposition loves to bully and devour soft, non-threatening animals - and it appears both Jets and bombers have been built with Charmin in mind.

Biggest question in NHL is which NHL coach gets the neck hatchet first.

Paul Maurice (aka PR Boy) in Winnipeg or Mark Bergevin in Montreal.

Neither team should make playoffs as they're currently constituted.


In CFL both Winnipeg GM Kyle Walters and coach Mike O'Shea will trudge on making mistakes, having a helluva time and cashing hellaciously high pay cheques - high in terms of money to performance ratio.

Have a feeling Jets will give a good account of themselves after their debacle vs. Toronto in G. 1 - but still lose 3-2 or 3-1 is my guess. A close loss gives the team a bit of extra breathing room as some of the rumpled media types in Wpg. start waking up to the reality of soft sports teams!
