The season is nineteen games in and the Winnipeg Jets have been struggling to be as good as last season.
One area where the Jets have not been as good has been in the Jets' control of shot attempts. As expected with human nature some players have been better than previous seasons, while others have been worse.
We will look at each of the Jets skaters the last two seasons and see how they are performing relative to those years.

Young Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba hasn't looked like himself.
Trouba, 21, has just three points in 18 games for Winnipeg. He's often looked a bit lost defensively. He hasn't found chemistry with Tyler Myers, which has sort of thrown Winnipeg's ideal top-four into chaos. And Trouba's ice time is down below the 20 minutes-per-game mark for the first time in his very impressive three-year NHL career.
It may be a bit counterintuitive, but this is precisely the time for the Jets to strike a deal with their struggling, extremely talented young defender.

Only 18 games in and the season has already had its ups and downs. After a 7-0 loss against the Nashville Preadators it seems like the downs outweigh the ups. Still, there are some positive signs.
It may still be early but nearly one quarter of the season is in the books and the Winnipeg Jets carry an 8-8-2 record compared to a 9-7-2 last year.
Let's take a look at how the Jets compare to last year at the same point.
