Niku Should be Untouchable for Jets

Source: The Hockey Writers
Date: 2019-02-17

Sami Niku hasn’t played very much for the Winnipeg Jets in his time as an injury replacement. Don’t let that fool you, however. He’s a rare and vital piece for their future on the back end. The unlikeliest of future studs, Niku has evolved from a seventh-round pick in 2015 to one of the Jets’ most promising young players. Every season since he was drafted, he’s risen up the ranks to become their best young defensive prospect. Now, with the Jets poised to be buyers for a major piece or two at the trade deadline, his name has popped up in the rumor mill. You could argue no player is truly untouchable, but Niku should be very close. When it comes to acquiring rental players, Niku’s name should be a non-starter. His name will certainly attract i

Winnipeg Jets recall Tucker Poolman

With Joe Morrow on IR and Byfuglien out, Poolman is back! With Dustin Byfuglien out tonight with an injury and Joe Morrow on injured reserve, the Winnipeg Jets have recalled Tucker Poolman. Poolman used to be the Jets go to call up when a defenceman was injured. However, a concussion that took him out for quite a while and Sami Niku took over his role pressbox popcorn connoisseur. The fact that they Jets have called up Poolman as well as Niku might mean that Byfuglien is going to be out for a while longer or that the Jets want Niku to play in the AHL following the game against the

JNGD.S8.G59 Flight Plan: Which Jersey Is Stone Wearing Tonight?

Date: 2019-02-16

With Pierre Dorion in Winnipeg for the past few days, a trade seems inevitable between these clubs. With the Sens coming to town tonight, there is really no better time to make a deal. Give us Stone and we’ll slap a jersey on him. Heck, make the deal during the game, and let the players switch teams at the intermission. The possibilities are endless with the Sens visiting Bell MTS Place as both teams are fully encapsulated in the rumour mill.

What’s wrong with Patrik Laine?

Date: 2019-02-16

There’s a lot going on with Laine’s puzzling season, and it’s not all on his shoulders. The best thing to happen to Winnipeg since the invention of wifi is, undoubtedly, the arrival of Patrik Laine. The Finnish phenom has put a recognizable face to the Jets, a team that’s occasionally struggled to create brand recognition outside of Manitoba. People may not know who Bryan Little or Jacob Trouba is, but it’s nigh impossible to mistake the thunderous release of Laine’s shot. He could probably fire a puck through the heavens and to the edge of the Universe, all without breaking a sweat.

Jets Pick Niku Over Poolman… What a Bad Move

Source: The Hockey Writers
Date: 2019-02-16

With the news that Joe Morrow will be out two to three weeks with a lower-body injury he suffered during a third-period scrap with the Colorado Avalanche’s Matt Calvert on Thursday, the Winnipeg Jets called up Sami Niku prior to their upcoming three-game road trip. That was the wrong choice. They should have looked no further than Tucker Poolman. Poolman’s Play Steady and Heady The 25-year-old Poolman has playing heady hockey for the Manitoba Moose. In fact, he’s flat-out been their best defender over the past month. He’s logging big minutes in all situations — even strength, power play, and penalty kill — he’s making calm, collected, and correct reads with the puck, and he’s putting himself in good positions without the puck. Poolman is currently riding a seven-game poin

Preview: Winnipeg Jets vs Ottawa Senators

Date: 2019-02-16

The Winnipeg Jets look to avenge their defeat from a week ago. Time: 6:00 PM CST Channel: SN360, SN1 Radio: TSN1290 The Winnipeg Jets are playing the Ottawa Senators again and they are looking for revenge in the form of a win. The Jets played a bad game when they were in Ottawa and are capable of so much more than they showed last time in Ottawa. As for the Sens; they would like the same outcome and game as the Jets played a week ago. Player to Watch Mark Stone if only because the Jets are rumoured to be a forerunner in trading for him. Stone is a terrific player and a Winnipeg boy to boot. While I don’t think he would solve all the Jets problems, he might be the distributer that would help unlock Patrik Laine from his slumber. That is the other player t
