It's more of a 'Bottom to Top' but 'Top to Bottom' sounds better. This is a monthly feature where I'll do a dive into each team's underlying numbers to see if they match up with where they currently sit in the standings. 

It's been one month. At this point, we can, in most cases, start to see patterns unfolding that indicate whether teams are good or bad based largely on their underlying numbers. Still, though, one month isn't an entire season. While we can start to get a decent picture of what's going on, there are teams who haven't yet hit their stride, are struggling to adapt to new rosters or coaches, or are simply overachieving based on a hot goalie or strong performances due to a favourable schedule. Let's see who, after one month, is as good or as bad as their place in the standings indicates.

On paper, the Jets 8-7-2 record may not stand out as impressing. But the Jets record shouldn't distract you from thinking the Jets aren't making noise around the league. The youth that Kevin Cheveldayoff and co have worked so patiently towards assembling is starting to come to fruition.  A young NHL team like the Jets is going to have growing pains as they grow as a unit, but that doesn't automatically entail the Jets lurking around the bottom of the NHL standings for the majority of the season. 

As we've seen 17 games in to the season, it looks like Winnipeg is starting to grow up pretty fast.

The Winnipeg Jets are moving in the right direction after their shootout win over the LA Kings moved them above .500 with record of 8-7-2 and sitting in SECOND PLACE in the Central!!
