The Leafs shuffled some paper today and placed Jonathan Bernier on the Injured Reserve retroactive to November 1st.

I remember frequenting the JetsOwner website and message board as a teenager. At the time, I really wanted the fans in Winnipeg to get an NHL team again; the team seemed economically viable, and the people who I would talk to seemed very nice.
Many random booings and "True North!" anthem chantings later, and I want to take it all back. I'll give Jets fans acknowledgment of their "passion", but they're also completely insufferable once the game starts. Like tonight's game, when they took on the Leafs. Unfortunately for Toronto, it didn't play out to their favour; while the score remained even until the home stretch, the Jets eventually were able to take off with a 4-2 defeat.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off only their second win of the season. The Jets, victims of a 5-1 beatdown at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, will be doing everything they can to get themselves back in the win column while denying Toronto their first win streak of the season.
I tend to dread Leafs vs. Jets games, but tonight's matchup in ACC shouldn't be too bad. I much prefer the mausoleum crowd in Toronto as opposed to the insufferable home fans in Winnipeg, booing players for no real reason other than they don't understand arena etiquette since they just got their team back.
Act like you've been there before. Geeze. And save your boos for when your own team gets swept in the first round of the playoffs.

The great thing about numbers is that, in the long run, they're typically less deceiving than your eyes. After all, they don't measure how you get it done; they measure if you do it, which is the primary object of the game. With that said, numbers can be just as useless, if not more useless than the "eye test" at the start of a season; the samples are often much too small to gain any real insight from.
Garret Sparks' first month of the season is a good example of this.
