Opportunities. Throughout the span of an NHL season, a team will be provided with a plethora of opportunities. In a normal 82 game season, it is quite important to take advantage of such opportunities if you want to make the playoffs. In a 48 game season? It becomes absolutely vital. For the second time this season the Jets spoiled an opportunity to really take hold of the Southeast Division and prove to everyone that they belong in the playoffs, and in doing so have provided an opportunity for Carolina to swoop right back in over the next week and take back that control. Today is another opportunity to make that task just a little bit harder awaits the Jets at the MTS Centre tonight.

This is game one of a home-and-home, back-to-back against the Capitals. With just 18 games remaining and Carolina on our heels, we have no choice but to maintain our hyperbole in proportion to our hope for the #3 seed by proclaiming this another must-win. But seriously, this one is a must-win, for vanity if nothing else. The Capitals enter as the 2nd worst team in the league-wide standings – interrupting the perennial battle between the Islanders and Blue Jackets for the right to make the first reach pick of the draft – while the Jets are seeking to prove they’re a playoff team after entering March with an underwhelming 9-9-1 record and a -6 goal differential. Just… let’s… come on, guys.

As the trade deadline approaches, the Jets are flirting with a Division Title. Though the focus is still building from within, the team sits in a position to buy for a playoff birth and even a banner raising come October. Sure it's the Southeast Division Champion banner, but thanks to realignment, our kids won't know that isn't impressive.
In the next couple weeks, we'll trot out some ideas for trade targets for the Jets in the hopes of being able to say 'I told you so' later on. In this installment, the much maligned and always controversial Dustin Penner.
