Adam Martini's three keys for Winnipeg to have a successful second half of the season: "1. Win on the road: Winnipeg may protect its house as well as anyone in the league, but the team is a mess away from the MTS Centre. The Jets have played the same number of home and away games (21) and are 14-6-1 on home ice and 6-11-4 on the road. So, what gives? Well, although the Jets are scoring almost as many goals home and away (59-52), they have given up 28 more goals on enemy ice." [Yahoo! Sports]

Dustin Byfuglien will be Winnipeg's lone representative at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game. Don't get too excited that "Big Buff" will be representing the Jets, it's just an All-Star Game. [NHL.com]

And finally, in a trade that truly helps neither team in the long run, the Montreal Canadians have traded Mike Cammalleri, Karri Ramo and a 2012 5th Round Draft Pick to the Calgary Flames for Rene Bourque, Patrick Holland and a 2013 2nd Round Draft Pick. [TSN]
