Tyler Myers and Toby Enstrom get along quite well, so you can save the odd couple references for someone else.

paul maurice "Right from Tyler’s first game here last year those two were a fit, I think just having enough games in the league they just figured each other out very, very quickly."
Tyler Myers "He moves so well and sees the ice so well that he makes a lot of real good passes that allow me to jump into holes and join the play, We’re always looking if there’s something we could’ve done differently on a play we didn’t like or thought was a little off. We’re communicating well and I think that’s been the biggest thing."

The offence, I’ve got confidence it will come."

Improving Jets shot count a matter of keeping things simple - Nov 24, 2015

It’s a simple game, this hockey: the more pucks you get to the net, the more pucks are likely to go into the net. And the more pucks that go into the net, well, like former Winnipeg Jets head coach Claude Noel used to say, the more joy there is in Joyland. So yeah, it’s little wonder...
