Why the Jets’ PP1 is unstoppable

Date: 2018-10-18

They’re just too damn good. The Winnipeg Jets’ power play is one of the best in the league. Their 23.4 percent success rate in 2017-18 was without a doubt a big reason why the team finished second overall in the league standings, and an improved 24.5 percent success rate took them to the Western Conference Finals. What makes the Jets so incredibly dangerous is without a doubt the myriad of options. Like most hockey teams in the world, the Jets employ a 1-3-1 power-play formation. The Athletic’s Ryan Stimson did a great job outlining the general idea behind the system as well as each player’s responsibilities in his hockey

Dear Jets, It’s Time To Call Up Sami Niku

To: Kevin Cheveldayoff, GM Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club Chevy, the Jets defense has struggled at times so far this early season and that’s not unexpected, but we’re starting to think that if the defense is going to struggle at actual defense, then they may as well bring in a kid who struggled with it in the pre-season and let him learn on the fly in the name of player development. Wouldn’t you agree Chevy? I’m sorry, may I call you Chevy? I guess I should go with Mr. Cheveldayoff, but I don’t want to be that formal with you. This isn’t that kind of talk. You’ve been the Winnipeg Jets General Manager for eight seasons now and I feel like you and all of us Jets fans have become pals if not family. You’ve shown us pics of your beautiful cottage

Jets favourites hosting Canucks on Thursday NHL odds board

Date: 2018-10-17

An all-Canadian clash highlights the NHL schedule on Thursday night as the Winnipeg Jets host the Vancouver Canucks as -220 favourites on the NHL odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Winnipeg has struggled with consistency over the first two weeks of the regular season, alternating between wins and losses, capped by Tuesday’s 5-4 overtime loss to Edmonton as heavy -200 home chalk. That dropped its record to 3-2-1 going into Thursday night’s matchup at Bell MTS Place. The Jets squandered their best offensive effort since opening night in Tuesday’s loss to the Oilers, taking a commanding 4-1 lead to the locker room at the end of the second period but wilting against a third-period comeback led by Connor McDavid, who scored his second goal of the game and assisted on two others to set the stage for Darnell Nurse’s game-winner in the extra frame. After finishing last

JN Picks: Letting Other People Do this For Us

Date: 2018-10-17

Welcome to week three of JetsNation Picks where we select seven games coming up the rest of this week and then look into our crystal balls to see who comes out with wins. Or in what is becoming more of a weekly theme, some of us defer to letting other people and/or animals pick, which honestly might not be a bad idea. LAST WEEK Roddy – better known on the Twitter lines as @BigPapiPegCity, let his dog Tyrone make the picks for him and he dominated going a very impressive 6-1! Kyle also had a great 6-1 week while Sean also rebounded well also with a 5-2 record. Art and Cassie both went 3-4. THIS WEEK No guest picker! I’d like to say it’s because we didn’t invite anyone because we were afraid of being shown up again like we were last week, but honestly schedules didn’t work out for a couple
