Each day in the month of August we’ll be examining a different NHL team — from looking back at last season to discussing a player under pressure to focusing on a player coming off a breakthrough year to asking questions about the future. Today we look at the Minnesota Wild. Another year, another disappointing end result for the Wild, who were bounced in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Winnipeg Jets.

5 Jets 1.0 Draft Misses & Who They Didn’t Pick

Source: The Hockey Writers
Date: 2018-08-15

It happens to every NHL team. A player they draft doesn’t work out, while other players who were available and selected soon after go on to have long, illustrious careers. The Bruins took Gord Kluzak first overall in 1982 over future Hall-of-Famers Scott Stevens and Phil Housley. The Columbus Blue Jackets took Gilbert Brule sixth overall in 2006 over Anze Kopitar. Perhaps most infamously, the Atlanta Thrashers took Patrik Stefan first overall in 1999 over one of the Sedin Twins. It’s a phenomena that rankles fans and brings out the armchair GMs. “Could you imagine if we’d have drafted (player we passed up) instead of (player we chose who flopped?)”

Date: 2018-08-14

Last season the Winnipeg Jets were not featured in a single nationally broadcast game south of the border. Partly due to their location, partly due to the fact that no one really anticipated just how good or how entertaining the Jets would be to watch. That changes this season as the Winnipeg Jets will have five games air on the cable specialty channel NBCSC (the “SC” stands for Sports Channel if you haven’t put two and two together yet) The Jets NBCSN schedule (times listed are CST) October 24: Toronto @ Winnipeg (6 PM) November 1: Winnipeg vs Florida (1 PM) January 10: Winnipeg @ Minnesota (7 PM) January 28: Winnipeg @ Philadelphia (6 PM) March 20: Winnipeg @ Anaheim (9 PM) The Jets will have two games as part of the network’s flagship “Wednesday Night Hockey” broadcast with the first bei

Turbulence Ahead for Jets Prospect Logan Stanley

Date: 2018-08-14

Logan Stanley has almost slipped out of the conscience of Winnipeg Jets fans. For a defenseman about to enter his first year of professional hockey, that may not be such a bad thing. By far the Jets most controversial first round pick, Stanley has been the subject of heated debate among those who observe Jets prospects. His merits and flaws are almost immediately apparent with one glance at his stat line. On the upside, Stanley is a towering, physical blueliner, standing 6-foot-7 and with more weight still to add to his already-imposing 235 pounds. On the downside, it took Stanley a far longer time than expected of a first-round pick to start putting up points.

JNFFT: Blake Wheeler vs Andrew Ladd

Our final match of the first round of the Jets Nation Fan Favorite Tournament pits the two captains of the Jets 2.0 era against each other as it’s the first captain Andrew Ladd going up against his successor, Blake Wheeler. BLAKE WHEELER vs ANDREW LADD Both Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler were members of the Atlanta Thrashers when they moved north to Winnipeg in the summer of 2011. Ladd had just been traded to Atlanta a season earlier after having won a Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks which was the second of his career. He was named the Thrashers captain for their final season in Atlanta and those duties carried over to Winnipeg and he became one of the first faces associated with the club along with ‘flashier’ players such as Evander Kane and Dustin Byfuglien. Ladd was an offensive leader for the Jets in their first few seasons, topping the 20 goal mark during three full seasons in Winnipeg and

What Are They Up To This Summer?

Summer, the time to sit outside on a patio and relax in the beautiful warm weather. For most hockey fans, summer is bittersweet because although the weather is beautiful, there is nothing quite like going to a packed Bell MTS Place and cheering on the Jets. Unless you are a huge fan of baseball or the CFL, there isn’t much else to watch during the long summer months and most hardcore fans are impatiently waiting until training camp starts and the players return. For the players on the other hand, they get a nice change from the long, physical season where they can relax, recuperate, and do the other things they enjoy throughout the summer. So what do the Jets actually do during summer when they aren’t busy training? The simple answer is that they go fishing. It’s no secret that some of the Jets are huge fans of heading onto the lake in their boat and catching a couple fish. In fact, this very activity landed Dustin Byfuglien in hot wa

Winnipeg Jets’ general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff is often heralded for his deftness at the draft table, and deservedly so. Through a patient draft-and-develop strategy, he’s turned the second incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets from a team nearly no assets and laughable depth into a legitimate contender. He’s largely avoided drafting busts and many of his picks are now core members of his team, such Mark Scheifele, Adam Lowry, Jacob Trouba, Nikolaj Ehlers, Kyle Connor, Josh Morrissey, and Patrik Laine.
