It does not take much digging to see the area most fans of the Winnipeg Jets view as the largest hole in their roster. A legitimate left-side top-four defender has been needed since the Ron Hainsey walked in free agency and has been requested by fans since the Atlanta Thrashers moved to Winnipeg.
You can see it with the majority of proposed Jets trades over at HFBoards, or chatter on Twitter with whom the Jets should select with their top pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Jets fans want a young left-side stud and they want it now.
But that hole may already be filled with a defender named Jacob Trouba.

The season is over, the draft is coming soon, and Winnipeg Jets fans look to the future for a sign of hope.
The Jets have now taken part in five NHL Entry drafts, and typically speaking after five years you have a good idea of where a draft stands in accumulating talent. While players do not peak statistically until about 24-26, at 23 years of age we are fairly confident where Scheifele and Lowry likely end up as players versus Austen Brassard.
Let's take a look at the offensive development of the Jets draftees and accumulated prospects, turning to the Jets 2013 Draft.

This week's WWYDW asks how you would play Connor Hellebuyck.
Take a read and let us know what you think!

The Winnipeg Jets announced earlier their decision to not extend Keith McCambridge's contract with the organization. Some supported this move due to the struggles of the Manitoba Moose, but others were quick to point out the roster's apparent weakness as evidence of the odds being stacked against the coach.
While investigating, I came upon an interesting trend with the Jets' prospects which may support the Jets' decision.

The Winnipeg Jets have decided not to renew contracts with Manitoba Moose's head coach, Keith McCambridge. McCambridge has been an employee for True North Sports Entertainment for quite some while, as head coach of the Jets' 2.0 farm team since the purchase of the Atlanta Thrashers and two seasons as the assistant coach to the Manitoba Moose prior to that.
