Often on By The Numbers we discuss the Winnipeg Jets player performances in relation to each other but this lacks context. Knowing which players are performing best works for looking at ice time optimal distribution, but lacks the ability to see where the Jets require assistance in order to become an above average, or even elite, team.
We will break down the skaters performances in relation to the league and see where the Jets holes exist.

Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec will be sidelined for the next week with a lower-body injury, sources say. Since being recalled by the Jets in mid-January, Pavelec has posted a forgettable 0.88 save percentage over the course of eight games.
This will give Michael Hutchinson or Connor Hellebyuck the chance to re-gain Winnipeg's net, as Pavelec, despite his poor numbers, had taken the job over.

Lots of people were dumbfounded back in the summer of 2011 when the first pick of the Jets 2.0 era was Mark Scheifele. We didn't know much on the Kitchener Ontario native, as he only played one year in the OHL at that point. His biggest supporter was his junior coach, Jets legend Dale Hawerchuk. Other than that, many fans didn't know what the Jets got.
He was ranked 16th among North American skaters before the draft, but when the Jets brass took to the stage in Minnesota, they seemed very excited to draft Scheifele with the seventh overall pick.

The Jets are in a bit of trouble. Last week we wrote a hopeful article about how the Jets are not out of the playoff picture and could easily make a playoff run. Since then, it's growing more and more difficult to believe in a playoff push for two reasons: Paul Maurice’s desire to make Pavelec his number one starter again and the fact that Tyler Myers just had surgery that will see him out for another 6-8 weeks.
