08:24 AM ET 11.11 | What was that sound Thursday night in Winnipeg? Was that the official moment when the honeymoon ended? Boos rained down on the Jets as they left the ice trailing 4-0 after two periods. ... The Jets came out like gangbusters in the first period, but after Evander Kane gassed two great scoring opportunities, they went to sleep. The Jets didn't have a single shot in the final 13 minutes of the first period and they looked spent after the long road trip. In this league, you can't afford to be tired. The Jets didn't record another shot until 9:53 of the second period. They went 23:02 without a shot on goal, which is a tad embarrassing.

You boo when you care, when it matters. In Atlanta, they didn't care and didn't show up at the arena.

Normally teams come out flat in their first game back from a long road trip.

I'll agree with you Stranger. They were booing because they cared.

Not only that but the arena was full. Meanwhile, in Columbus, they booed in a half full arena.

Wow shows that they have no clue on here, the booing was at the pathetic referring, not at the home team! I was there, no one has even come close to booing the team......yet!

That's because no one spends their honeymoon in Winnipeg.

November 11, 2011  10:37 AM ET

did they think that they were inheriting a decent hockey team? Last year gave the group of players hope...but they're still pretty bad. Whatever, at this point they should hope the team tanks to get a top draft pick (as much as I hate the notion).

The article comes from your own newspaper...so your comment should read 'wow shows that they have no clue in Winnipeg'....and then you should take note that nobody on this board (other than you) watches Jets games unless they are playing someone of importance....so all we have to go on for our commentary is the article from your own newspaper.

Sorry bud, i too attended last night. The boos were during and at the end of the 2nd.
As hockey fanatics, we love the team, but also care if we are putting in a effort or not as well.
