Hey all! Here is our feature running Monday through Friday that will bring you up to date on what's going on in the media pertaining to the Winnipeg Jets.

Here are your headlines for Wednesday, January 18, 2012:

It truly was the blurst of times last night. Ed Tait, tells it like it is: "Yes, somehow, some way, this crew completely lost its mojo during the roughly one-hour flight from Ottawa across the border to New Jersey. Winnipeg is now 0-7 in the second of back-to-back games this season." [WFP]

Pile on the negativity! "The Jets came out strong — for about three minutes — and then looked tired and uninterested the rest of the way." [Winnipeg Sun]

How much longer can Martin Brodeur delay the inevitable? [Puck Daddy]

Taking you back to when times were simpler, a review of Winnipeg's 2-0 win in Ottawa, also outlining the Jets injury report. [Toronto Sun]

Speaking of man games lost due to injury, this website is truly the cats pajamas's in calculating how decimated some teams rosters have been. Definitely worth a look! [Sabres in Seven]

Consistency has been Winnipeg's bitch lover: "It's so bad right now, they might have to name the affliction after the Winnipeg Jets. The symptoms include playing so beautifully one night and downright awful the next. The Jets came down with their usual case of the No. 2s on Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils, getting swamped 5-1 at Prudential Center just one night after a superb 2-0 triumph over the Ottawa Senators." [Winnipeg Sun]

Elliotte Friedman exposes a glaring issue which has been plaguing the Jets as of late: "On January 6, 2011, the Thrashers were fifth in the Eastern Conference, eight points clear of ninth-place Carolina. They proceeded to lose 18 of their next 22. By March 3, they were 13 points out. Couple of current Jets said a major problem was "cheating," both forwards and defencemen going for the home run when it wasn't available. "You're trying to put a pass through three guys. No chance," one said. Seeing a little bit of that, although Winnipeg looked good last night cooling down red-hot Ottawa." [30 Thoughts]

Finally, say what you will about Dustin Penner's overall conditioning and dietary regiment but the guy can really take a joke. [Puck Daddy]
