Let's take a look at tonight's lineups.

One reality of being a small market NHL team is that you aren't going to be landing the big fish in Free Agency. That's something the Winnipeg Jets are fully aware of and something that they have fully embraced. It's been well documented how the Jets have drafted and developed the foundation of their team. And a huge part of their prospect development has also been the prospects they've acquired from other places.
Players such as Marko Dano (acquired from the Andrew Ladd deal) or Joel Armia and Jack Roslovic (acquired from the Evander Kane deal), the Jets have found a way to acquire promising prospects in other ways besides drafting them themselves.
Another way to find talent is to sign undrafted rookies. This is a hard way to find an effective player, but the Jets may have found a diamond in the rough in Brandon Tanev.

You could have forgiven Jets fans for feeling a bit of trepidation going into tonight. On the road where the Jets have had their struggles, starting the back-up goalie against a red hot St. Louis Blues club and late in the afternoon finding out the team's leading point-getter in Mark Scheifele was going to miss the game... It kind of had the makings for a no-good awful night.
But the Jets as it would turn out played a very solid road effort with all four lines chipping in and pulled out a 3-2 win in overtime against the Blues.
