News came out recently that the 24 NHL teams returning to action on Aug. 1 for summer playoffs in two hub cities will be allowed to carry 30 skaters through Phase 3 — the training camp stage — of the NHL’s Return-to-Play plan.

Date: 2020-07-07

Smoked in five games by the Colorado Avalanche after finishing first in the West last year, this Calgary Flames season was all about proving they could elevate their game when it mattered most. The team struggled early but showed plenty of resilience in a season in which they overcame losing their coach to mount a second-half surge that still only barely had them in the playoff picture. And now, a team notorious for slow starts will have to ensure they get hot quickly to beat a formidable Winnipeg Jets squad that has also struggled to live up to playoff expectations. There’s pressure everywhere in a series s

This is the third of an 8-part series evaluating how several of the Jets have performed against their recently signed contracts. In each article, I’ll look at the season or seasons that preceded the signing of their contract, who their comparables were at the time, and how they have performed since the new contract began. In evaluating the new contract performance, I will pull comparables, and use their average annual cap hit to determine if the contract turned out to be good value, average value, or poor value. Rating the Contracts Each contract will be rated on a scale from Great Value (5/5) to Terrible Value (1/5). The rating will be based on the difference between the original signed AAV, and the current market value. Great Value: Current Market Value >20% higher than original signed AAV Good Value: Current Market Value between 5% and 20% higher than original signed AAV Average Value: Current Market

76 goals in a rookie season. It’s a total hard to wrap one’s head around. Everyone has a sports record locked in their mind that will live with them forever. For many, it’s the number of goals “Finnish Flash” Teemu Selanne potted in his 1992-93 rookie campaign for the Winnipeg Jets that stands on top. One of the finest Finns and classiest players to ever step foot on the ice, Selanne put the league on notice with his explosive speed, deft hands, and lethal shot. Selanne Was Dominant Like No NHL Rookie Before Him Rookies aren’t really meant to dominate. However, Selanne, selected 10th overall in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, did just that. Perhaps it was because he was a bit older th
