No Playoffs For The Jets

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press,

The final score was 4-2 for the visiting Montreal Canadiens and by the time the buzzer arrived, there was no steam left in the players or the fans. The promise of this season had been broken. And hearts in Jets jerseys, both on the ice and in the stands, were stopped.

The Jets, having been dealt one final cruel blow, had nothing left to offer. Their will had been broken. Weeks of tottering on an emotional ledge had taken its toll, and now with their fate determined, the Jets went fetal. No fight, no push-back, no nothing.

Taking its cue from the players, the audience many consider the best in hockey lost its voice.

As a Jets fan, they missed a 2-year window of making the playoffs.
Being in the worst division in all of sports, you would have thought they could muster enough jam to earn at least one playoff birth.

Moving to the West next year will make things even harder. No more Panthers, Canes or Bolts to feast off of - just a steady diet of well managed, defensively tough and gritty teams.
