If it weren't for the fact that Kevin Cheveldayoff was hired in the summer when the team moved North from Atlanta, how many people would know the name of the Winnipeg Jets' rookie general manager? Not many, I presume, and he kept his hand close to his face in the offseason, making very minor moves to spend a year assessing the core of the team he has.

In late February, the Jets get eight straight games with their "Seventh Man."

And frankly, "crazy" is the only way to describe what the National Hockey League's schedule makers did to the Jets this season.

Blake Wheeler: Team's Leading Scorer Needs Help Up Front.
Even if you haven't watched a Winnipeg Jets game this season, all you need to do is look at the numbers to know what this team needs.
At the All-Star break, the Jets are 22nd overall in goals scored at 2.45 per game. The team's leading scorer, Blake Wheeler, has nine goals and 33 points. He is 81st in scoring in the NHL. The team's leading goal scorer, Evander Kane, has 18 and is tied for 28th in the NHL but was in the midst of a 10-game goal scoring drought when he suffered a concussion (Last Friday? No one is quite sure) and was lost indefinitely.
