Gary Lawless throws on the rose coloured glasses in comparing the MTS Centre to other arenas in the NHL. Five hundred and sixty-six words of pure tripe. Gary, it's time for you to pick up a dictionary and look up the word "objectivity". It would be nice to see that come through in your writing once in awhile. [WFP]

The Jets won't say that their 2011-12 season is over.... but they should... because it's over. [Winnipeg Sun]

Paul Waldie with more on the end of Winnipeg's playoff hopes: "The Jets will look back on this season as one of many missed opportunities. The losses on the road, especially against weaker teams such as the Columbus Blue Jackets and Montreal Canadiens (twice), hurt more than anything. The Jets’ road record is 12-21-4, compared with 23-12-4 at home. Noel said repeatedly during the season that Winnipeg would need at least a .500 record on the road to make the playoffs. The team didn’t come close." [Globe and Mail]

Kyle Wellwood has continued to perform well beyond his contract value. [Winnipeg Sun]

With a 3-1 victory last night over the Calgary Hitmen, the Brandon Wheat Kings have taken a stranglehold on the series. Winnipeg Jets prospect Jimmy Bubnick was held pointless in the loss. Game 5 of the best-of-seven series will be played Thursday night at them MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB. Plenty of good tickets still available HERE. []
