<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MisstheWhalers</b></div><div>What was Chevy referring to with the: "Dont let the facts stand in the way of a good story"??</div></div>

That was today's media availability.

From The Athletic:
Over the course of 42 minutes on Sunday, Cheveldayoff recoiled from criticisms of his tenure as GM. He sold the team’s modest but real improvement and fourth playoff qualification in the last six seasons as an accomplishment. He responded to the stat that Winnipeg has won the 25th most playoff games since 2011-12 with a walkthrough of the Jets’ draft-and-develop history. When it was then pointed out that Winnipeg has won one playoff series since 2017-18’s success, Cheveldayoff bristled. He doubled down on the 2018 Western Conference finals appearance and the 2021 sweep of the Oilers, later adding, “Don’t let facts stand in the way of a good story.”

It’s clear in the comments on this site that fans’ frustration is approaching a boiling point. On social media, Cheveldayoff’s deadline day insistence that Winnipeg had all of the pieces to compete for the Stanley Cup is making the rounds. So too is his retort to fans who wanted to see the Jets do more at the trade deadline. “This isn’t fantasy hockey,” he said. “This is real.” But fans don’t want to be patronized for their critique of the team they love. They want to be told how and why things are going to get better.


This is a truly bizzare communications strategy in my view.
