<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CEO</b></div><div>Hmmmm I see all of you believe the Jets shouldn't be trading their high picks. I see them honestly having a pretty good prospect pool with Lambert, McGroarty, Zhilkin, Salomonsson (just starting to realize how great of a draft you had. All 4 of those guys were in my top 36), and Lucius, with Perfetti graduating to the NHL. Just wondering why you guys wouldn't want rentals?</div></div>
Unless your team is a true playoff-competitor, I don't think you should be moving an asset like a 1st, regardless of how good your farm is.
And frankly, I don't know where to read WPG - I don't really see them as any more than maybe a fringe playoff team right now. I might be mistaken, but outside of Perfetti (kind-of), aren't you guys just rolling the same team back from last year? Except, without a captain, I guess.
That being said, CBJ would gladly accept.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Mr_Canoehead</b></div><div>I'm not surprised the home opener isn't a sellout, as they didn't sell out a single game last year (not even the half-capacity ones). Combine that with the fact the Jets are years removed from their 2018 playoff run; reports (by journalists) of locker room strife making the team less likeable; little improvement in the roster; and it is difficult to get excited for the team at this point. If they get off to a good start, then I could see fans buying individual games and mini-packs as the season goes on. However, boxes owned by corporations are unlikely to change their mind as their hospitality budget has already been re-allocated.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MisstheWhalers</b></div><div>This is an organization that seems to like hanging banners, have retro nights and celebrate the Jets 1.0 years more than it worries about building a competitive lineup for the here and now.
Have heard the home opener is well short of a sellout.
Chipman's recent letter to box seat owners should be concerning even to the most fervent believer in Chevy, Chipman and TNSE.</div></div>
Crazy how many options out there for a shrinking entertainment dollar, goldeyes playoff game was one mediocre crowd or a past preseason game. Haven’t made a ice or moose game lately, but as I get older, starting to enjoy the 20 dollar wheatking ticket over much else. Will be interesting going forward, I’m hoping they start thinking like ottawa or baseball Oakland A’s or Tampa Rays. Tearing it down every so often and let the cards fall where they may and rebuild from there. Love or hate the Winnipeg crowd, but even hawerchuk gets booed out of town in 7 years ish, possibly not a bad window for a build and rebuild, til you get it right. They seemed to have forgotten 1.0 for the longest time and now they seemed to be using it as a crutch for the mediocre squad that they keep running out. I just hope the ownership is in it for a few cycles and not run at the first time of trouble. I’m just hoping there’s a Renaissance with this squad and kids come faster than expected, make for a ton of awful tough decisions coming. Please don’t make it easy or the players playing themselves out of town.
