Wheeler integral to Winnipeg’s season success?

With less than a month until the National Hockey League returns, the Winnipeg Jets are looking for a significant improvement after finishing fifth in the Western Conference’s Central Division last season. The Jets reached the playoffs for the first time in their brief history in the 2014-15 campaign but were beaten in all four playoff […]

Looking To Jet Further Up The Standings, Winnipeg Attracting Notable Ticket Prices

The Winnipeg Jets finished fifth in the Western Conference Central Division last season as coach Paul Maurice led them to their best record in franchise history. However, the strong regular season and 43-26-13 record was ultimately not enough to get them past the first round of the playoffs. The first postseason appearance in seven years […]

How can the Jets improve?

On the back of a six-game losing streak, the Winnipeg Jets are under no illusions that they need to make some immediate improvements if they are going to have any chance of making it into the playoffs. Head coach Paul Maurice has been dealt a number of blows in recent weeks, most notably the news […]

Jets travel to Chicago to drop the puck against Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the best teams in the NHL right now. Jonathan Toews, the captain of the Blackhawks, has been nominated to be the captain of the All-Star team, and in addition to Toews, Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook, and Duncan Keith have been named to the squad. The Blackhawks currently sit in […]

Jets prepare for road date with Blackhawks

The Winnipeg Jets will face off against the Chicago Blackhawks, the current leader of the Central Division of the Western Conference, next Tuesday evening at the United Center in Chicago. The Jets have been playing exceedingly well of late, good enough to get them into prime playoff position, but they’ll have a stern test on […]

Winnipeg Jets Playoff To Do List

It hurts to say this as a Winnipeg Jets fan, but this season has hurt me and my fellow fans. Let’s break down how this team is not a playoff contender, far from even making the playoffs and what they need to do if they want to win. #1: Far Below Sub-Par Goaltending For all […]

How Much Mark Scheifele Means to the Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets latest six game pointless streak really came at an inconvenient time. Thanks, Captain Obvious. It isn't any secret though why it happened when it did. On March 4th, rookie Mark Scheifele – the face of the franchise – went down due to an injury and that 3-2 loss at the hand of […]

Monday Morning Musings: Confidence Breeds Success

Confidence is infectious. Especially when the leader of the troops is emitting it as much as Ron Hainsey used to give the puck away (Sorry Ron). But the Winnipeg Jets are more confident when crossing the .500 percentage threshold. Add to that a 3-1 win against the Central Division leading Chicago Blackhawks in their own […]

Jets Look To Overcome Mediocre Status

So maybe it was the coach after all, eh? Poor Claude Noel, even one game over the .500 mark didn't do it – probably had to do with how much the first half of the 2013-14 season dipped into that record. Two winning seasons – 37-35-10 and 24-21-3 – but still no playoffs followed by […]

Maurice the Right Fit in Winnipeg

When Paul Maurice was announced as the new head coach of the Winnipeg Jets, my gut feeling was that this team can finally do something positive. Didn't we already have Christmas? Because it felt like a late Christmas gift: An experienced coach of over 1,000 NHL games along with AHL and KHL experience coaching the […]

Jets All Out Top 25 Mid-Season Rankings

#25: James Wright, Centre Last Year's Ranking: N/A Pre-Season Ranking: 23 Mid-Season Ranking: 25 Difference: -2   I am not a fan of James Wright and I don't think he needs to be on this team.  There are other players who should be in his spot full-time, such as Eric Tangradi or Anthony Peluso or […]

Monday Morning Musings: Wright Not Right & Jets Halfway Home

Wright Not the Right Fit In Winnipeg The biggest complaint I have had as a Jets fan over the two and a half seasons the team has been back hasn't been the lack of Ron Hainsey's defensive skills or even the lack of NIk Antropov's speed – it is the fact the Jets regularly dress […]

Jets Woulds, Coulds, & Shoulds List

It's season three in Winnipeg and enough time has passed since the Jets returned to start a should, would, and could list for the team and franchise of the past two and change seasons as well as towards the present and future of the team.   Jacob Trouba should be in the running for the […]

Four Future Jets Take On World Juniors

I always enjoy taking a sneak peek at the future of the Winnipeg Jets.  It brings optimism, hope, and a sense that the franchise is actually going somewhere. And for the first time in the entire franchise's history – Atlanta and Winnipeg – the team actually knows how to draft quality players who will be […]

Trouba Needs to be in Running for Calder

If there is one thing I know that will monumentally disappoint me this season with the Winnipeg Jets – other than the fact that we are stuck in .500 purgatory – is that Jacob Trouba will somehow be overlooked in the race for the Calder Trophy. Through 16 games this season, the Jets rookie defenseman […]
