Kevin Cheveldayoff was looking at the long term yesterday which apparently meant making no deadline moves: "The hard part, and I feel for them (the fans) is that you’re always looking for that quick answer, that quick fix and man, oh man, you wish you could find it sometimes." [WFP]

Dustin Byfuglien is the answer! To what question, we still don't know. [Winnipeg Sun]

In which Mike Santorelli is excited to join the Winnipeg Jets. [WFP]

Hey Jets' fans, here's your vote of confidence from management that your hard earned money is more important than the team's long-term success; or some shit like that. But seriously, I'm just joking. Pay your tabs, Winnipeg! [Winnipeg Sun]

Matt Eichel things the Jets' were too quiet during the Trade Deadline: "It is frustrating to say the least that the Jets, in the midst of a four game losing streak, did not think to make a move to wake some players up. The Jets put an uninspired Antropov on the IR and moved an equally uninispired Dustin Byfuglien onto the right win with Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little. That is scary and disappointing." [Jets All Out]

What is the "window of success" when dealing with the Winnipeg Jets? Our pals at Jets Nation investigate. [Jets Nation]
