Winnipeg Jets 3/4 Mark Report Card: Def/Goal/PP/PK

Winnipeg Jets grades for the defencemen, goaltenders and special teams – 

The Winnipeg Jets blue-line and goaltending actually took a bit of a step backwards in this quarter of the season.  It seemed the healthier they got the worse they played.  Luckily by the end of the 3rd quarter, the defence corp settled down and they are playing much better.  This quarter saw a huge trade with the Buffalo Sabres and the Winnipeg Jets said good-bye to Zach Bogosian and hello to Tyler Myers , with Myers making a solid impact immediately.  Myers and Enstrom look to be a good match on the blue-line.   

Both goaltenders had their highs and lows but this quarter was definitely not their best.  Michael Hutchinson is slowly taking over the #1 goaltending position.

November 15, 2013 Winnipeg Jets -Flyers-16

Dustin Byfuglien has been in “beast mode” for most of this season!

The Winnipeg Jets special teams switched positions in the third quarter with the PP showing a resurgence (13th place) going 14 for 65 while the PK dropped (19th place) allowing 22 goals in 85 chances.  ONCE AGAIN, the Winnipeg Jets gave up the MOST PP opportunities in the whole league and that needs to change.  It is beyond ridiculous!

At the time of this “Report Card”, the Winnipeg Jets record was 30-20-11 and IMO these grades reflect their play.  Please feel free to add your grades or opinions on any player/players you feel I have over-rated or short-changed.  

Remember, this is only my opinion and mine alone and it does not reflect the opinion or opinions of the other writers here at Winnipeg Hockey Talk.

I assign two grades; first (hockey grade) is just strictly what you see is what you get and the second (ROI) is weighed against salary or “bang for your buck”.
