Noel on thin ice

07:34 AM ET 01.09 | Sitting in the rink Wednesday night, the Jets could only hope it was rock bottom. Kevin Cheveldayoff, whether he wants to do it or not, must at least be considering firing Claude Noel. But replacing the coach is not enough to fix this club. If Noel is to go, so too should the clique running this team's dressing room. Firing Noel at this stage won't accomplish much. This team doesn't have enough talent and it doesn't have strong leadership. A new coach alone won't make a difference. Cheveldayoff has to break up the cartel leading these players. One of the big pieces needs to be removed via trade to augment any coaching change. ... Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien or Blake Wheeler should be on the way out of town at the same time as Noel. So fine, clip Noel. But fire the leadership group, too.

At the very least.

The article goes on to stating the obvious.

Somebody should be looking at the GM too. They have been down for so long, they should have a few good picks by now.

I'm calling shenanigans. There's no thin ice in Winnipeg in January.

LOL. The ice is getting pretty thick here in Pennsylvania too.

He didn't look like he's missed a meal last time I saw him play.
