As the Winnipeg Jets were trimming down their training camp roster for the 2022-2023 regular season, they made one move that caused debate among Jets supporters.
That roster move that caused the debate was the Jets sending Ville Heinola to the Manitoba Moose instead of sending Logan Stanley to waivers for purpose of assignment to the Moose.
Last week I wrote an article regarding the Twitter reaction to Heinola being sent to the AHL and there were reactions in support of and against sending Heinola down.
But now since the Jets are two games into the season, and Logan Stanley has played in both games, it is interesting to see how people have reacted to Stanley’s play in these games.
In regards to Stanley’s stats through two games, he does not have any points, has four penalty minutes (all against Dallas), a minus-one plus/minus, and has averaged under 15 minutes of ice time per game.
Twitter reacts to Logan Stanley’s performances with the Winnipeg Jets so far this season
It is safe to say that Twitter has not been happy with Logan Stanley, especially with his performance in the Jets’ 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.
The first tweet argues for the Jets to have Ville Heinola back in their defensive corps rather than Stanley:
The tweet below is also in the same reasoning that the Jets should have kept Heinola rather than Stanley:
The counterargument to this tweet is that the Jets never decided that Stanley was better than Heinola, but rather that Stanley was a better fit on this roster than Heinola,
One thing that Stanley brings to the Jets is his size and physicality, but this next user would rather look at Stanley’s on-ice abilities rather than just his size:
It is safe to say that this next user has had enough with Stanley this season and does not think he should wear the Jets’ colors again this season:
The tweet below believes the Jets should insert Dylan Samberg into the lineup for tonight’s game rather than Stanley:
The next tweet asks the question of why Stanley’s performances are the constant question of Jets supporters and shows that he may be the “scapegoat” of the Jets:
Although two games are an extremely small sample size, Stanley’s performances so far this regular season have caused much debate in Jets’ country.
