shared wrote:Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - The Winnipeg Jets have claimed centre Brett MacLean off waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes.
The 23-year-old London, Ontario native played in 13 games last season for the Coyotes and tallied two goals with one assist.
MacLean led the Ontario Hockey League in goals with 61 for the Oshawa Generals in 2007-2008.
The Coyotes originally selected MacLean in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He has scored 74 goals in three seasons with San Antonio of the American Hockey League.

The story this season is going to be Fighting for the right to lose to the #1 seeded team in the playoffs and then have a bad draft. I want to see the team be #1. Either in playoff slot or in draft pick. Tired of the mediocrity.

Well isn't that just dandy. Our best offensive prospect gone - LIKE THAT.
The hate on for Winnipeg will grow a tad, I reckon.

If I recall correctly, he said in one of the articles (after being unofficially cut), that he wasn't happy with his camp and agreed that he still needed to focus on increasing his speed and defensive game to play with the 'Yotes.

And he wasn't going to get PP time until about midseason at best. Maybe Winnipeg will handle the next stage of his development better than we did.
Two questions - In the 15 year history of the Yotes, which players drafted by the Yotes went on to score 20+ goals in a season in a Yotes uniform? And, looking at the opening day roster, which players will score 20+ goals for the Yotes this season?
Anybody think goal scoring is going to be a problem? But there's no reason to try to address it internally?
If you can't tell, I'm pretty bitter about this move.
