Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Can Ondrej Pavelec be more of a difference, many ask?
Will the team's road record improve?
Will Evander Kane shuffle aside all the distractions and remain on the upward production curve?
Is Olli Jokinen just the centrepiece the team was lacking?
Can 19-year-old Mark Scheifele make the jump?
All good questions, but none of them will be relevant without the central improvement the Jets must have.
Their goals-against total in 2011-12, all 246 of them, was in the NHL's bottom five.
If many or all of the above questions were answered in the positive and the 2013 goals-against number stays the same, there is no realistic path for the Jets to the playoffs.
