We've noted this on these boards (and Jetsowner.com) before....but I just can't get over how incredulous the Prime Time Sports commentators are that we would be in the top 10 or top 15 in revenues!!! It makes me laugh!!! Of course, when you stop and think about it, it makes perfect mathematical sense, based on what we know about average ticket prices in the NHL, and in our fair city! Only a few markets benefit significantly from local TV. The rest is mostly about ticket revenues!
Let's all give ourselves a pat on the back!!! LOL!!! Yeah - we AREN'T such a small market, after all!!!!
minimac63: Cont'd...And 2)Play Hellebuyck regularly (until he "poops-the-sheets"), 3)Hire Trevor Kidd as goalie coach, and 4)Hire Dale Hawerchuk as an Associate Coach!! Then, maybe a chance to "right" the veering ship, sinking into mediocrity of the past 5 & 1/2 yrs

minimac63: Anyone who does not agree with hiring Trevor Kidd as a goalie coach, you need to hear his take on the Jets goalies woe's,for 1, then listen to his knowledge and answers to fix Jets defensive structure and break-down issues, for 2.

minimac63: Trevor Kidd is already living here in the 'Peg, he has a pass to the Bell Center and he actually has ideas from an NHL experience point of view on how to fix their problems, actually with all the players they currently have, not by trading everyone!

minimac63: TK could actually be a wise choice for a "dual-role" as Goalie/Defensive Coach. IMO. What do y'all think, JETs-Can-Soar Fans?

minimac63: We want Hawerchuk, we want Hawerchuk...we want Hawerchuk. The new public sign at Portage & Main "crosswalk opening"

Gumbyman: Yes I believe a deal involving Trouba and Petan and Hutch could garner a decent return, and should!!! But only do it if player(s) coming back is signed long-term and cap-friendly and a true valuable fit mid-20's to late 20'max age.

Gumbyman: Above mentioned trade would need to include a prospect goalie with nhl back-up potential right away, plus a valuable versatile center/forward and a high- 1st round pick +...
