TEAMS: New York Jets
The new-look Jets have been an instant hit in hockey-mad Winnipeg. There are packed crowds, team flags waving from cars and players have their routine errands turned into autograph signings. A month into the season, players were still buzzing over an opening night homecoming scene ripped straight from a playoff game. Amid the buzz, though, the Jets are just 4-6-1 and near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. It's a reminder of a franchise that made one postseason appearance overall and failed to post a winning record in their final four seasons as the Atlanta Thrashers. Not everything about the transition has been easy for the Jets. The Jets are still stuck in the Southeast Division are in the midst of a seven-game road trip.
