07:45 AM ET 12.16 | Closing out a dispiriting week, the Jets skated through another troubling weekend, too. Already behind the eight-ball with their weak record against the Central Division -- now 3-11-3 -- they earned just one point in three games against division rivals. "What I say doesn't matter," said Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler, who tied [Saturday's] game twice with goals 1:55 apart in the second period. "It's what you do out on the ice. You can blow smoke as much as you want in the media. We've been blowing smoke for three years, everyone, myself, everyone that's stood in front of a microphone in the last three years." ... [Captain] Andrew Ladd, one of only three Jets to speak to reporters after the game, was asked if something drastic has to happen. "I don't know," Ladd said. "It's not my decision to make."

Isn't that what we said about Rex last year and the year before?

You can fire the team or fire the coach. Firing the coach is easier, will make some people feel better, but probably won't do much for Loseapeg.

The Jets' best move is to coerce the League into switching conferences.

Hey, shouldn't CBJ be in the West?????

They beat the Rag's last week. But then again, who doesnt beat the Rag's lately?

The want to top 6 forwards for Kane.

Maybe you never saw "Everybody Loves Raymond'' episode where he tells his big brother ''Whack means an entirely different thing to us Italians''.

Rex is in the running for ''obnoxious man of the year'' award, and is second place right now.

I just checked the Jets team stats, one thing stood out immediately, this team has no centers. After Ollie Jokinen you're looking at Mark Scheifele, John Albert and James Wright. Who?

no this is for Evander, hence why the Rangers dropped out of the discussions. We dont have any top 6 forwards right now. :)

Gretz might have been worth six players at his peak, not many others, even Patrick (the other) Kane

that game was nerve wracking last night. The NYR better wake up...NOW it's getting late

December 16, 2013  11:38 AM ET

ironically, this title could just as easily be in the NFL threads...albeit with significantly less witty comments
