This is part two of a two-part article looking at the Winnipeg Jets in the Revisited Series. Part one can be found here.
In the previous article I had discussed the process by which True North Sports & Entertainment had acquired, and then relocated, the Jets. I detailed the scouting staff that had been retained, as well as reviewing their record at the draft and the consequences thereof. I reviewed Kevin Cheveldayoff and Claude Noel's records that warranted their positions within the organization, and we watched a video on why Gretzky is the Anti-Christ to Manitobans and how Samuel L. Jackson missed his calling as a junior hockey coach.
In this part I will look at Evander Kane, the Jets roster and recent additions, some season prognostications and my general summation of the state, and future, of the franchise.

After the jump, some of the best general interest articles from the Nation Network this week. Topics include (but are not limited to, he said in a lawyerly, small print voice): Justin Schultz, whether older players get worse over the course of a long season (don't break a hip, Ryan), the best bargains in the NHL, Hall of Fame inductees Pavel Bure and Barrie Stafford, the best and worst in jerseys, a player who isn't happy with his NHL '13 rating, and of course the lockout.

See that Malkin face? All pissed off and such? Pretty intense. So intense in fact that if you watch these KHL highlights you'll grow 50-75 more hairs on your chest by the time you're done watching them (that goes for you too, ladies). There's other games, too. Watch those also. In fact, I'm not even going to put the Magnitogorsk pack first just to screw with you.

The KHL returns from a 9-day break with 22 teams playing in 11 games. Joffrey Lupul makes his KHL debut with Avtomobilist, Malkin stacks the pads (what?), Ovechkin return much to the delight of Nicklas Backstrom, and more.
