from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has done strong work with his draft-and-develop plan and there is potential as well as burgeoning depth in his organization.
But it’s clear his NHL group isn’t ready and you can argue they may never be. It’s time to push the whole package along a bit and make tomorrow come quicker.
Blake Wheeler is hitting his prime and playing the best hockey of his career.
Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little, Dustin Byfuglien, Toby Enstrom and Mark Stuart are all in the thick of their careers and at their peak. Evander Kane, Zach Bogosian and Ondrej Pavelec have been in the league for a number of seasons and are approaching their primes.
Only three members of the current Jets should be considered untouchables and they are Wheeler and rookies Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba.
