There seems to be some confusion on to what expect from Tyler Myers and Drew Stafford, so I will try to clear the air.

The Winnipeg Jets franchise was pushing to earn its very first playoff berth since the move to Winnipeg. Stafford and Myers came in during a time of need and produced exceptionally well.

JGD Preseason #5: Jets take on Senators in rivalry-free meaningless hockey

The records are a bit of a misdirect, though, since those games have been played largely by prospects and NHL hopefuls. Fortunately for those paying to watch this game, the Jets will ice a better squad than they did on Sunday in Minnesota - and the less said about that one, the better.
