A reunion of old Southeast Division rivals takes place on Tuesday as the Winnipeg Jets travel to Raleigh, to face the Carolina Hurricanes. You remember the Southeast Division don't you? Ah, the good old days when 94 points was good enough to win the division. Brings back memories.

After the Winnipeg Jets' practiced in Raleigh Carolina, Paul Maurice gave some updates on the Jets and some expectations for tomorrow. One of these announcements was that the Jets' would be without veteran Mark Stuart for quite some time.

With the February 9th trade deadline coming up, it will be interesting to see how this impacts the Jets and their decisions revolving around the team's future.

The Winnipeg Jets' General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has some big decisions up ahead. The Jets currently sit tied for second last in the Western Conference and last in the Central Division. They had two huge pending free agents between Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien (since reduced to one with Byfuglien extended), while they also have a major part of their future looking for raises with Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba.
Well, we've decided to help out Chevy make some of these decisions with a series of investigations on the Jets. We'll take a look on where the Jets are and where they could be.
We started our series with a breakdown on how the Jets' roster compares against playoff teams. We noted that the Jets have a lot of top pieces but haven't built the best supporting cast. Then we looked where the Jets' weaknesses are impacting them and where they need to improve.

Earlier in the day we learned of a possible Jets v Oilers outdoor game that hearkened back to the heated rivalries that the Oilers and the 1.0 version of the Jets.
Tonight's game will not remind anyone of those battles. This one barely reminded fans of an actual NHL game. One that the Jets won 2-1 in a shootout.
