This week, we at Jets Nation hope to provide you with some of the best (and free) in-depth coverage of the Winnipeg Jets as the trade deadline date fast approaches us. We'll take a look at what the Jets have done, could do, and should do, with all the reasoning why and why not.
It's d-day today, deadline day for any trades, and we will look at what may be leftover for the Jets.

The Winnipeg Jets acquired Marko Dano as part of a package for Andrew Ladd this past week. The 21-year old winger joined the Jets on Saturday for the afternoon game in Pittsburgh.
See below the jump for Dano's highlights playing in North America from 2013 to present. For a background on Dano, check out Garrett's 'Getting to know Marko Dano' post from Thursday.

The tank started earlier than normal for the Winnipeg Jets. A Saturday afternoon tilt usually means lacklustre hockey and the Jets played the part to perfection. In a yawner of a game, the Jets lost 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins, thus making the goal of drafting Auston Matthews inch agonizingly closer.

After Winnipeg Jets' general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff sent Andrew Ladd to gun for another cup, some of the Jets' fans started expressing concern whether they should be cheering for Ladd to win the cup or not. Most (should be all, really) Jets fans truly appreciated the Jets' captain, and wishes success for him...
...but there are some of us who are more analytical than emotional.
Part of the Jets' return was a conditional pick. The condition was this: if the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup, they will throw the Jets a third round pick in 2018. However, this would also mean the Hawks won their series in the playoffs, diminishing the value of the 2016 first round pick the Jets also received in return for Ladd.
So from this all business perspective, should the Jets cheer for Ladd to win?

What do the Winnipeg Jets do for an encore? After all this team went through on Thursday, everything else seems rather ordinary.
It started by hearing the news that top centre Bryan Little will miss the remainder of the season due to a compression fracture in the vertebrae.
