If Lawson Crouse hadn't shown up on the hockey horizon, we might not have had anything to talk about for the 2015 draft. That's a stretch but the fact remains Crouse has—more than anyone in recent history—divided talent assessors in a big way. Is he a great prospect or a kid who developed into manhood far ahead of the other teenagers of his generation? Where will he play? Can he score consistently? Does he check well enough to be considered an impact checker? What the hell is an impact checker? Lawson Crouse is exhausting even just to talk about. Wait until you see him play!

Do the Jets play down to their competition? Why is it that they seem to play well against the best teams?

One step forward, and one step back.
That was the story of both the game and also the Jets past four games, continuing their win one, lose one pattern.
The Winnipeg Jets dominated the visiting Chicago Blackhawks for the first ten minutes. It was a masterpiece. They held their opponents to one shot against for the first half of the first. An unfortunate penalty from Dustin Byfuglien put the Jets on the penalty kill and Andrew Shaw scored the games opening goal in the first.
The second period was all Jets, outshooting the Hawks 15-8 and outscoring 3-1 with two goals from Byfuglien, one from Blake Wheeler, and one from Brad Richards.
The Jets continued their strong play in the third, but somehow two slipped by, including the game winner with 31 seconds left in the game.
Let's break it down.
