What’s The Problem With The Winnipeg Jets?

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

Are the Jets a young team just coming into its own, a bitter playoff loss the fuel it’ll need to take the next step in 12 months?

No, that would seem to better describe the team of three years ago, when it finished second, overall, and shocked top-seeded Nashville to reach the Western Conference final.

That moment seems to have been the peak for this group.

The contending window was thrust open that spring, but it’s been gradually sliding shut ever since.

The team’s core talent up front appears to have absorbed as much as it can about how to pay the price in the post-season. Three straight early summers slam the point home.

Getting that message to take root is Maurice’s job.
