Tonight the Jets begin their four game schedule sandwich. (I assume it's turkey because it's so close to American Thanksgiving). Starting tonight against the Avalanche, games against the Capitals and Wild, then closing off the sandwich against the Avalanche again on Saturday. There won't be any Ham on this sandwich however, because the Hamonic situation hasn't led to a trade yet.

On the other hand however, the Jets are welcoming two new faces into the fold. The Jets have called up Joel Armia and Connor Hellebuyck to the roster after losing Ondrej Pavelec to the wrath of Shane Doan. Neither are expected to play in tonight's game but both will presumably play sometime during the sandwich.

The Good Guys:

Andrew Ladd - Bryan Little - Blake Wheeler

Matthieu Perreault - Mark Schiefele - Drew Stafford

Chris Thorburn - Alexander Burmistrov - Nikolaj Ehlers

Adam Lowry - Andrew Copp - Anthony Peluso

Joel Armia

Adam Pardy - Dustin Byfuglien

Tobias Enstrom - Tyler Myers

Mark Stuart - Jacob Trouba

Michael Hutchinson

Connor Hellebuyck

The Not So Good Guys:

Gabriel Landeskog - Nathan MacKinnon - Matt Duchene

Blake Comeau - Carl Soderberg - Jarome "Arthur-Leigh Adekunle Tig Junior Elvis" Iginla

Andreas Martinsen - Mikhail Grigorenko- Cody McLeod

Some fourth line guys.

Francois Beauchimin - Erik Johnson

Nick Holden - Tyson Barrie

Brandon Gormley - Zach Redmond

Semyon Varlaov
