The Winnipeg Jets 2.0 have been around now for five full seasons (well... four full and one partial, lockout-shortened, season). This gives us ample data to construct some fun lists of the best and worst statistical seasons for performers.
We take a look at some of the best and worst statistical performances by Winnipeg Jets' forwards.

Given the big stage that this game was on today, a 3-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers feels like a massive kick in the gut to Jets fans, but I'm here to tell you it's not all bad.
No really, this isn't the end of the world. It's not great either and there are major concerns (the power play, the fact the team has trailed to start the third period in all five games) but step back from the ledge and let me explain how things aren't that bad.

All eyes of the hockey world will be on Winnipeg this afternoon but due to more than just the novelty of an outdoor game in Winnipeg.
Connor McDavid and the Oilers have had a fantastic start to the season and have triggered memories of the 80's Oilers we saw a glimpse of yesterday. Patrik Laine made his statement to a national TV audience on Wednesday and the young Jets are quickly becoming the cardiac kids of the NHL.
This is gonna be fun!

Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Los Angeles Kings are in some desperate times ( to say the least) with their top two goaltenders sidelined with injuries. First it was their star-goaltender Jonathan Quick who went down with an injury. A state of panic was created right away as Quick, the goaltender that helped the team win two Stanley cups, could be out for the immediate future.
It was speculated that the Kings were sniffing around the trade market to bring in reinforcements to bolster the Kings goaltending situation. The Kings didn't acquire a goaltender right away and now they may be regretting they didn't right when Quick went down. With the news that their current starting goalie Jeff Zatkoff has been placed on the IR, the Kings are need to get another goaltender on the roster as soon as possible.
The Kings now desperately need a goaltender and they have been linked to Manitoba Moose goaltender Ondrej Pavelec ever since the Quick injury. Pavelec is likely the best option available to them on the trade market but will the Kings be able to work out a deal?
Could a deal get done between the Jets and the Kings?

This season has seen the Jets’ management group make some tough decisions by sending Ondrej Pavelec down to the Moose and having Chris Thorburn and Mark Stuart spend three out of four games in the pressbox. Another tough decision looms, however, with the Heritage Classic right around the corner. Does Paul Maurice ice the lineup that gives him the best chance to win, or do the veterans ‘deserve’ the opportunity to participate in the spectacle that will be the outdoor game at Investor’s Group Field.
