So Byfuglien is starting off his career in Manitoba on the right foot. First, he gets arrested for boating while impaired and then refuses giving blood and urine samples. Apparently this can potentially affect his ability to enter and work in Canada. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/09/ ... with-jets/

Then we find out that the guy has gained over 40 pounds in the off season! When the cops weighed him in, he came in at 286 pounds...last year he played at 245. Can we start calling him the Big Buffet now?

don't people usually starve themselves in protest (moving to winterpeg), instead of eating in protest?

Playing weight is never the truth, Shea Weber is listed as 234 but I am told he plays at 245 lbs.

But Buffy at 286 two weeks before training camp sounds pretty slow.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPY WHEN TRUE NORTH BOUGHT THE JETS AND DECIDED TO REMOVE RICK DUDLEY AND CRAIG RAMSAY AS GM AND COACH AND REPLACE THEM WITH KEVIN CHEVELDAYOFF/CRAIG HEISINGER AND CLAUDE NOEL AS COACH. NONE OF THESE GUYS KNOW WHAT MAKES BYFUGLIEN TICK. WHO KEPT AN EYE ON HIM OVER THE SUMMER?

THE JETS IMPORTED A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE MOOSE TIES - HEISINGER, NOEL, WADE FLAHERTY IN MANAGEMENT/COACHING ROLES, NOT TO MENTION GUYS LIKE JASON KING, JASON JAFFRAY, TANNER GLASS, ETC. ALL GOOD GUYS....BUT THIS ISN'T THE AHL ANYMORE.

Man, what an easy way to prevent having to play in a dump. In other news, drinking and boating has doubled in Edmonton area lakes.
