"We play a simpler game on the road," Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said after a 3-2 win Tuesday night against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers. The Jets (33-33-7) should be in a positive mood when they take the ice at Staples Center. The Kings (34-31-7) have seen their playoff hopes slip away more recently, posting a 1-3-1 record in the last 10 days to fall from three points back of the final wild-card spot to eight back with 10 games left.

Here’s a question to fans of the Winnipeg Jets. Who’s staying up past bedtime on back-to-back nights to watch a .500 hockey club either go through the motions or put in the hard work necessary to keep a modest winning streak alive? More to the point, does anyone care about anything...

Today, the Manitoba Moose announced that defenceman Luke Green to an amateur tryout agreement.  Luke Green, drafted 79th overall by the Jets’ at the 2016 draft, will be getting his first taste of pro hockey as he looks to crack the Moose lineup with this tryout offer.

The Bedford, NS native is a former first overall pick in the QMJHL and is known for his offensive instincts and mobility from the back end which helps him jump in on the rush, skills that have helped him amass 108 points(21 goals, 87 assists) in 181 games (split between Saint John and Sherbrooke).

The Winnipeg Jets have a few interesting forwards that provide value in different ways. Adam Lowry, Andrew Copp, Joel Armia, and Marko Dano are all adequate players with capable skill sets. In all likelihood, the Jets will only be able to protect one or two in the expansion draft, and this has sparked debates over which player that should be. In some ways, having to choose between multiple young and good players with potential is a good problem to have. Let’s see what the numbers suggest about these four. Start with WAR What is WAR good for? Absolutely nothing… Well actually, it’s good for starting off the conversation.

Instant Analysis: Jets recall Brandon Tanev

Source: Jets Nation
Date: 2017-03-22

In preparation for the team’s two-game California road trip, the Winnipeg Jets have recalled forward Brandon Tanev from the Manitoba Moose on an emergency basis. This season, Tanev, 25, has notched four points in 42 contests with the Jets while logging just over 10 minutes of ice-time per game. Is Tanev the right player to recall? Tanev has evolved into the Jets go-to call-up option throughout the season. Tanev is an energy player with good foot-speed and penalty killing ability that bodes well on the team’s fourth line. But with the Jets out of playoff contention and little excitement surrounding the team, fans have suggested that it may be time to see Kyle Connor or Jack Roslovic get a chance with the Jets. While it’s easy to get excited about the two young prospects leading the Moose in scoring, keeping the two in the AHL is the right move for the time being. Roslovic and Connor are key cogs in the Moose’s lineup with each playing top even str
