Date: 2016-08-25

Parity in the NHL is undeniable, and turnover in the Stanley Cup playoff picture has been a constant since the league adopted the salary cap in 2005. But going into the 2016-17 season, we’re dealing with a different version of parity than what we’ve witnessed over the last 10 years. The separation between top- and bottom-tier playoff teams in each conference hasn’t been as apparent throughout the cap era as it is now. It was in 2012 that the Los Angeles Kings, who qualified for the post-season with a win in their final game of the season, became the first team in North American professional sports history to win a championship as the lowest seed in their conference.

With the World Cup and the start of NHL training camps right around the corner, fans of the Winnipeg Jets are starting to wonder how the forward lines will shape up. Last week, I wrote and posted "The Sleeper Must Awaken", an article focusing on one of the main pieces in the Evander Kane trade that came back to Winnipeg, namely promising forward Joel Armia, and his up and down path in reaching consistent NHL playing time.  I suggested in the article that perhaps adding Patrik Laine as Armia's linemate could help Armia reach his anticipated potential, and vice versa.  A big shoutout and thank you to everyone who read, commented and/ or voted in the following poll that was embe
