from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,
An 8-3-1 record, the best 12-game start in their rebooted history, good for first place in their division.
It all seems a little too good to be true for the Winnipeg Jets.
So is it?
Part of this job is to poke at nice, shiny things to find out if they’re real.
I wasn’t about to poke defenceman Brenden Dillon – did you see what he did to Dallas forward Ty Dellandrea, Tuesday night? – so I just asked him.
Thankfully, he laughed.
“I don’t know,” Dillon began. “As much as we’re excited about the start, we’re only 12 games in. There’s a lot of runway left. Every team talks about it, though. A start is really important.”
Over to Kyle Connor, a safer choice. I don’t think he’s thrown a punch in his career, yet.
Is this team this good?
“It seems that way, doesn’t it?” was his reply.
