from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,
For an organization that has been accused of being risk-averse over the years, the Winnipeg Jets have become interesting for me.
In goal, former backup Michael Hutchinson’s .937 save percentage leads the entire NHL. He’s wrestled the No. 1 job away from Ondrej Pavelec, and wouldn’t it be interesting if that consistent, everyday No. 1 had been under the Jets’ nose all along?
Up front, they’ve managed to lose their last two games without Evander Kane (lower body), who is out until February.
With some improvement 5-on-5, Winnipeg could be a playoff team for the first time since returning to Manitoba. Will GM Kevin Cheveldayoff have the moves in him at the March 2 trade deadline to get his team over the top? That’s always the question in Winnipeg.
