Fehr skating again with teammates
PHILADELPHIA -- Eric Fehr skated for the third straight day with his Winnipeg teammates, but the big forward is far from ready to play this season. While he can skate and shoot, he's not quite ready to start taking contact yet.

While he'd like to be out there, Fehr said he just hopes to keep making progress.

"You have your good days and your bad days," he said. "As long as you have a couple good days in a row it's positive. I'm hoping just to continue with that. Not have any steps back."

On a team lacking for offense -- the Jets entered the game tied for 22nd in goals -- adding another scorer would be a good thing.

Fehr said his conditioning is in a good place, he just has to keep building up the strength in his shoulder.

"Conditioning-wise I feel great," said Fehr. "I've been working with the trainer for the last month and a bit. It feels strong, but the shoulder needs to come back around a little bit more before I get back into action.

"I'm shooting and everything but by the end of practice my shoulder gets fatigued, and that's something you can't have if you're in a game situation. I think the basics are there, you just have to build on it."

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
