07:28 AM ET 10.22 | Winnipeg Jets head coach Claude Noel can feel he's on some thin ice, and he had some tough words for his team on Monday. Noel made the remarks after the team dropped a 3-1 decision to the visiting Nashville Predators at the MTS Centre on Sunday. "My job is to get the best out of our team and our players. That's very clear," he said. "That's my job and if I don't do that, there's consequences. So I clearly understand those things." The Jets drop to 4-5-0 with the loss on Sunday and fall to 2-3 in their current six-game home stand. Noel said given this latest loss at home, he would sit all his forwards if he could, but he can't. "I don't have enough players to sit everybody to put everybody back in. Sit 12, bring in another 12? I don't have enough. I could sit a lot of guys," he said.

Ah, yes, make the kids sit in timeout for a few minutes...today's disciplinary method of choice. Works so well, doesn't it?

Back in the good old days didn't a team (I'm thinking Detroit) send their whole team down to the AHL and then bring the AHL team up to play a game?

He's been there two years and the team's problems have been screaming out the entire time.

Yep - and I don't think they are a terrible team. They have a good core group just need a few more pieces.

Has he tried switching up his lines?

They will be just like the previous version of the Jets...struggling just to make the playoffs.

And unless Scheifele becomes a decent one, they are greatly lacking at the center ice position...Bryan Little is not a first line center.

Santa Claus wouldn't be very happy with Noel.
