Was Losing in Round One Actually a Good Thing for the Jets?

Date: 2019-05-14

Even though the title might be a bit click-baity, there may be some truth to that statement. It’s now been a few weeks since the Jets were eliminated by the Blues in what was a disappointing end to a tumultuous season. While losing in the playoffs is never a good thing, it might be what’s best for the organization when looking at the long term future of the team. It’s no secret that the year in general didn’t quite go as planned. The Jets were penciled in as a Stanley Cup favourite from the start of the year as they had nearly the same group of returning players who made a deep run one year ago. But what if those expectations were the problem during the season? There was a monumental shift in mentality for the Winnipeg Jets from 2017-18 to 2018-19. During their rise in 2017-18 they continually preached the idea that they were only trying to make the playoffs. There was no talk of lifting the Stanley Cup at year’s end, the team was

Winnipeg Jets Should Let Tyler Myers Walk

Source: The Hockey Writers
Date: 2019-05-14

Since coming to the Winnipeg Jets late in 2015, Tyler Myers has endured his share of ups and downs. From his best offensive seasons since he was a rookie, to heartbreaking family health problems and injury troubles, he’s been through the good, the bad, and everything in between in Winnipeg. While the Jets and their fans should have gratitude for Myers’ seasons of service on their blue line, and for being arguably the most stable piece of the Evander Kane trade, it’s time for his run in Winnipeg to end. His age, contract, and uninspiring advanced statistics all work against him, along with the young players on the rise in Manitoba of the AHL. Some Jets fans will be cheering Myers out the door, based on the vitriol directed his way from some corners during the season. They should bear in mind that a d

Jets Summer UFA Shopping List

Are there any UFA’s other than their own, that the Jets should consider? TSN published their top 25 UFA listing recently. Glancing at a list like this as a fan brings up feelings of dread and excitement. Dread if your team is facing the almost certain loss of one of your top players. Excitement dreaming of how certain UFA’s would look wearing your team’s jersey next season. The list of Jets UFA’s is well known to fans of the team, and the general consensus is pretty neutral. While it may be nice to keep any combination of Tyler Myers,

What should the Jets do about Tyler Myers?

Date: 2019-05-13

The Winnipeg Jets have a mess developing on defence and Myers is part of it. Is Tyler Myers’ departure from Winnipeg a guarantee? A lot of us assumed so, but this may depend on if the Jets trade Jacob Trouba, and, if so, what comes back in return. (The betting line is Trouba does get dealt, but we’ve all lost wagers before.) It’s hard to see GM Kevin Cheveldayoff losing both without acceptable cover. It will be challenging for the Jets to match what My

You might not have noticed it, but Andrew Copp took a few more steps forward as being someone whom the Jets can rely on to center a third or maybe even second line. With a new contract due this summer and at the ripe age of 25 this fall, this past season could be one that we look back on as the setup to a breakout season in 2019-20. As we continue our look back at the season that was for each individual Winnipeg Jet, you can find the full list and links to logbooks for other players as well as resource credits by checking out the prologue.

Our logbook series continues today with a look at Adam Lowry who has established himself as a strong defensive forward that can help make other players around him better to a degree, but going forward into next season could maybe use a little bit of help of his own.

What should Trouba get in a trade?

Can the Winnipeg Jets trade one of their top defencemen? With nothing really coming out of Winnipeg Jets headquarters, we are left to our fantasy when it comes to dreaming up things that could happen. One of those fairly obvious things is Jacob Trouba being traded. But what should he garner in a trade? One thing about trades is a team can shop a player around to get a package that fills their needs. When the Nashville Predators traded Seth Jones to the Columbus B

Jets Lacking on World Championship Rosters

Date: 2019-05-11

Winnipeg Jets fans hoping to see a little bit more of their favourite players after their team was bounced from the Stanley Cup Playoffs exactly a month earlier than a season ago will be disappointed by makeup of the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship rosters. 16 Teams, 100-Plus NHLers, Zero Jets The 16 countries represented at the tournament, which began yesterday in Slovakia and runs through May 26, have more than 100 NHL players on their rosters — those from the teams that failed to qualify for the playoffs and those from teams that have been bounced from the postseason. However, those rosters are completely bereft of Jets, as all members of the Winnipeg squad declined to don their country’s colours.
