Winnipeg Jets: Segment 3 Update


The Winnipeg Jets 3rd 10 game segment –

Eleven every ten

My theory is that if you can garner a minimum of eleven points in every ten game segment (on average) and win those two extra games you should be in the playoffs or be in the hunt on the last weekend of the season.  The team would have ninety-two points.  In 2013-14 the Dallas Stars grabbed the last playoff spot with 91 points.

The original article explaining my theory can be seen here.

Winnipeg Jets:  Slow and Steady Should Do It

Segment 1

The Winnipeg Jets first ten game segment wasn’t looking very good but with two wins and a shootout loss in the final three games of the first segment they actually salvaged that segment by finishing 4-5-1 for 9 points.  Based on looking at eleven points per segment on average, they only missed by two. 

Segment 2

The Winnipeg Jets second 10 game segment finished up on Tuesday night versus the New Jersey Devils with a 3-1 victory giving them 14 points in this segment.

They met my 11 point quota and made up the lost 2 points in segment 1 and have 1 more point in the bank.  There are going to be ups and there are going to be downs all season but if they can average 11 points …….. could be playoffs !!!

I have designated game #41 and game #82 as the two extra games.  I will continue to chart and update the Winnipeg Jets in 10 game segments all year.

Segment 3

The Jets third segment ended with a shootout loss in Denver to the Avalanche on Thursday night but they managed to secure 13 points in their last 10 game segment going 5-2-3.  The Jets banked 2 more points giving them a total of 3 (banked) after being 2 in arrears after segment 1.

In segment 3 we saw the start of a possible platooning system in goal between Pavelec and Hutchinson.  We also saw Buff move back to defense with the injuries to Enstrom, Bogosian and Clitsome.    

           As of December 12/2014

3 seg jets

So far, so good.  The formula seems to be accurate for the most part as the Winnipeg Jets were in a playoff position after the 2nd and 3rd segments where they had “just barely” reached the minimum goal of an 11 point average.
