Random Thoughts On The Winnipeg Jets: Mar. 2

Things about the Winnipeg Jets and the NHL that crossed my mind over the weekend —

Some random facts and a few thoughts from this past week about the Winnipeg Jets and the National Hockey League.

1.  The Winnipeg Jets finished last week with a 2-0-1 record.  Five out of a possible six points.  Thoughts?   

2.  The Winnipeg Jets are 9-2-2 at the MTS Centre since Jan. 1, 2015.  

3.  The Winnipeg Jets played 2 of the Western Conference’s heavy-weights this past week and did not take a back seat whatsoever.   

4.  The 5-2 win versus Los Angeles was Michael Hutchinson’s 4th start in a row.

5.  The Winnipeg Jets are finally starting to show that home ice dominance all Jets fans had hoped for.  (see #2)   

6.  Welcome to Winnipeg Jiri Tlusty … acquired from Carolina for a 3rd round draft choice in the 2016 NHL Draft and a conditional 6th round draft choice in the 2015 NHL Draft.  

7.  I think Winnipeg Jets fans are really starting to like defenceman Tyler Myers!     

8.  I still have the Jets sitting at DEFCON 3 because they are still holding down a wildcard spot.

12.  Kevin Cheveldayoff has done a nice job the past couple of weeks giving coach Paul Maurice the pieces to help clinch a playoff spot.  (see #6 and #9)   

13.  The NHL Trade Deadline has come and gone.  Are Winnipeg Jets fans happy with what Chevy has done?    

14.  PP update:  The Jets PP didn’t change position this week and is sitting at 13th place at 18.4% overall.   

15.  PK update:  The Jets PK moved up 2 places and is now sitting at 17th place running at 81.1% overall.   

If you have any thoughts on any of these comments or questions, please let me know.  I am a curious person by nature and I need answers.
