Preview and GDT: Winnipeg Jets at Calgary Flames

NHL: Preseason-Calgary Flames at Winnipeg Jets James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports

Time: 8:00 PM CDT

The NHL pre-season is nearing it’s completion and the Winnipeg Jets are playing again tonight. They are playing the Calgary Flames to see who will reign supreme or something. I have not quite figured out this whole pre-season thing.

Dustin Byfuglien has still not returned to the team. According to some people at Earls St. Vital he told them he was coming back, but that is the only thing anyone has heard. So if you believe random fans at Earls St. Vital, believe it. Also, if you see someone who is a known athlete or something out on the town, just leave them be.

As for the game tonight, time for the Jets to show what they are made of sans Patrik Laine, Kyle Connor, and Byfuglien. Connor is still in Ann Arbour and Laine is now in Switzerland. No word if Byfuglien is still at Earls St. Vital.

The Jets need to make sure they have their best lineup with the players available to them at the start of the season. If that includes Byfuglien remains to be seen and there has been no word on where things stand with the other two. In fact, there has been very little at all about Connor’s negotiations. On the other hand, Nikolaj Ehlers has been very good in the pre-season and hopefully this will carry over into the regular season.

Lines may follow after I see how much time I have following reading and writing for school. Sorry people.
