So here we are in Day 65 of the NHL Lockout. Many of the fans have not changed their feelings on the matter as a whole, but have changed the target of their vitriol. Some have shifted their blame from the owners to the players… back to the owners and then some back on the NHLPA or vice-versa.

This is part two of a two-part article looking at the Winnipeg Jets in the Revisited Series. Part one can be found here.
