Winnipeg Jets Season Ticket Holders Renewing At A 96% Rate

from Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press,

In the first renewal window for Winnipeg Jets season-ticket holders, more than 96 per cent of the approximately 4,300 upper-deck seats in the P6 and P7 group of the MTS Centre have been renewed, True North senior vice-president of business partnerships and account services Norva Riddell confirmed Friday.

Those sections originally required a three-year commitment back in 2011 and when the renewal window was open between Jan. 14 and Feb. 21, True North offered those customers another three years, or a longer extension up to six years.

Half re-upped for three years and the other half chose terms between four and six years, Riddell said.

"That was surprising," she said Friday about the choice for extra years. "And we are delighted with that. We just didn't know. Delighted with those results, for sure."

Winnipeg’s Slump Comes At The Wrong Time

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

The Jets have picked the worst possible time to go into the tank, last night’s 4-2 gift to the New York Rangers the latest example of a team finding different ways to melt down when it matters most.

This swan dive to the regular-season finish line has produced just two wins in 10 games, and only half of them have been without the 20-year-old Scheifele in the lineup....

The Jets inability to lift their game to the level required at this time of year can be reflected in some badly-time scoring slumps.

Evander Kane’s well-publicized drought has reached 11 games, and he’s minus-eight in his last six games.

Blake Wheeler has one goal in his last 13, Devin Setoguchi one in 12.

Zach Bogosian has been a plus player once in the last 11 games.

The old adage about big-time players coming up big in big-time games simply doesn’t apply, here.

What Should The Winnipeg Jets Do At The Trade Deadline?

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,

The Jets find themselves in a familiar position as silly season shifts into overdrive, within striking distance of a playoff spot and just three games to play before the 2 p.m. CT deadline on March 5.

But the Jets have got plenty of company in the playoff race, which means the scales currently tip in the direction of teams in selling mode, with asking prices expected to be sky high.

Generally speaking, players who are set to become unrestricted free agents on July 1 make up the majority of those who will be on the move.

It's almost certain the Jets won't be in the market to bring in a rental player.

The Winnipeg Jets Keep Winning

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

Paul Maurice has already done so much for the Winnipeg Jets in his short tenure as coach, so it was fitting that his team paid it back some on Tuesday night.

Maurice's return to Raleigh to face the franchise with which he grew up was surely an emotional one, and beating the Hurricanes 2-1 had to feel pretty good. Knowing Maurice, he'll tell you that the most important thing was that the Jets earned two more points.

They're now 9-2 under Maurice, who replaced the fired Claude Noel. The Jets pulled to within just two points of the slumping Canucks, who have now lost five in a row after falling to Boston.

Afternoon Line

Players that embellish on a consistent basis run the risk of not receiving the benefit of the doubt when they are legitimately fouled. Brendan Gallagher is too effective and too good a player to develop that unwanted reputation from the refs.

-Kerry Fraser of TSN on the Gallagher incidents with the Jets yesterday.  More on the topic at TSN.
