The Winnipeg Jets have officially hit the halfway point. Twenty four games deep and the boys are very much still in the playoff race. Holding a 12-11-1 record the Jets are currently sitting in 9th in the Eastern Conference, a single point back of the Rangers for 8th, and two points behind the division leading Carolina Hurricanes. It hasn’t always been pretty, but the team has set themselves up for an end of the year push that could potentially see them make the playoffs.
This article will review each of the major positions (forwards, defensemen, and goaltending) as to their performance and roles thus far this season, as well as cover some major points on the team, and give a look forward to the second half of the year.

By now we have all seen it. On Tuesday night, New York Ranger Marc Staal took a deflected clapper from Philadelphia Flyer Kimmo Timonen right in the eye resulting in a rather gruesome, a very scary injury. (See video below if you can stomach it)

How lucky are the Jets? As they scuttle around simultaneously winning and losing games you think they possibly couldn't, their division rivals are dropping like flies. With every rivals' torn groin, broken wrist and damaged MCL, the Jets find themselves in increasingly better shape to make some noise in the this shortened season.
