Moving into this offseason, a lot has been made of the high number of free agents the Jets have to deal with. In total, the Jets currently have 18 restricted and unrestricted free agents that they must make decisions on, including players such as Bryan Little, Blake Wheeler, Alex Burmistrov, Zach Bogosian and Ron Hainsey. One name that has seemed to slip the minds of many fans is Kyle Wellwood. What should the Jets do with Wellwood?

This is a tough time of year for Jets' fans, mostly because there's nothing to do. Sure, we all (well, certainly not our own Travis Hrubeniuk) got our kicks watching the Leafs and Canucks flame out spectacularly from this year's playoffs. That was fun. And for those of us playing StreakCred or some other kind of playoff pool, there's still fun to be had and money to won - or in my case, fun to be had while hoping to climb out of what must be last place.
But no matter - this time of year just isn't the same without your team in the race. The Draft is still far away. Free Agency is even further. Teemu has already been eliminated from Cup contention. What to do?
There's some obvious answers. Drink! Cheer for the Bombers! Forget the pleasant distraction that is professional sports and actually get some productive work done in our own lives!
But, if you're like me, these options don't really fill the void. Luckily, there is still something - the World Championships. Phew. Yes, there's still some WInnipeg Jets out there fighting the good fight, trying to help their country attain (small levels) of glory in what is, at best, the 3rd most important international event on the Hockey calender. So, to help you with your Jets withdrawals, here's a look at how the Jets in the Tournament are doing.

We nominated, you voted, and the results are in. All this week Jets Nation will be revealing your reader picks with our writers' perspectives for the 2013 Year-End Awards. Today is the exciting category of Best Young Player Outside the NHL. Some in the Nations Network voted on best Rookie for their team, but the Jets' young talent is mostly bubbling under. The Jets had a lot of good news on the Prospect front, with Scheifele deep in the OHL playoffs, Lowry being named Best Player in the WHL, Eric O'Dell delivering a quality season in bad circumstances, and Trouba turning pro. Who did you like best?
