Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Enough of Buff and his gaffes and giveaways.  Coach Noel intimated that while the mistakes are glaring there are usually a number of other mistakes that are made on the play that don’t receive the same attention.  He isn’t wrong.  While Buff has made some brutal errors with the puck if you re-watch any goal against the Jets oftentimes you see it is the result of a breakdown earlier in the playBut in today’s column Gary pushes for a move of the big defenceman.

    I think Big Buf has a lot more value than people in winnipeg give him credit for. Overall the jets are not a good defensive team and Buf’s turnovers are glaring, but could you imagine him on a defensive minded team along side a great skating shutdown D man playing 18-10 mpg? Jets put him with waiver wire claims in Clitty and Ellerby or an offensive minded smaller Enstrom.
    The Jets will move him and the return will be better than most think and it should be
