So close, yet so so far away. Finishing with a record of 24-21-3, the 2013 Winnipeg Jets ended the season with 51 points. A mere four short of the New York Islanders and that highly coveted playoff spot. Unfortunately those four points have changed the tone of Jets fans everywhere from glee and hope to reflection and questioning, and thus here I am writing a review on the season rather than a preview of the newly-branded Winnipeg Jets first playoff matchup.
Buckle up, folks. Throughout this week I’m going to work my way through the forwards, defensemen, goalies, and finish with a summary and my opinions on this season. Today, I go over the Winnipeg Jets forwards.

Here it is. The game that Jets management, Jets players, Jets coaches, and Jets fans have had circled on their calendars for weeks. It’s already been said today by many, players included, but this is the biggest game of the year.

Another day, another dollar, and another vitally important game. If the script hasn’t been clear enough over the last week, I’ll repeat it once more as the Jets face what is another ‘must win game’. This time the lowly Carolina Hurricanes try to blow through the MTS Center to put a true damper on the Jets playoff hopes.

The Jets are very quickly running out of time. There are two weeks left in this shortened season, and the boys find themselves currently sitting in 9th place in the East. A mere two points out of a playoff spot. Here I was thinking I was actually going to get some studying done for finals this week.

The Jets have fallen out of the playoffs. They have lost 5 straight. The top line hasn’t scored in what seems to be forever. The city is calling for everyone’s head following the trade deadline and this team needed something.
Cue Zach Redmond.
