The Winnipeg Jets Are Not As Bad As It Seems

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, Has it already gone sideways? Five games in? Maybe. It will now take a four-game winning streak to climb above .500 and it won't happen on this homestand. With Carolina, Tampa Bay and Colorado still to come before the Jets hit the road next, the best this group will be able to call itself is .500 when they climb on the charter...

Lowry man in middle

The extent to which head coach Paul Maurice was selling the key change -- moving rookie Adam Lowry to centre -- was fairly bold.

Wakey-wakey, sleeping Jets

The big boys better wake up and they better wake up quick. Bryan Little is the only Winnipeg Jets player to score in the club's last three games, and predictably, those outings have all ended as losses. Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd, Mark Schiefele, Toby Enstrom, Zach Bogosian, Jacob Trouba. Nothing. Zippo. Any time the Jets' best players want to roll out...
