This whole concept of "let's take a player who has no actual legit business being considered an NHL All-Star, and vote him into the NHL All-Star Game" is pretty much a yearly thing now right?
It is a sham! It is a mockery! It is proof that fans shouldn't have the right to vote and thus should be taken away now!
It also really isn't that big a deal is it? It is after all exhibition hockey and can we not all lighten up a bit?

The MTS Centre remains a house of horrors for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Winnipeg Jets couldn't be happier. A two goal performance from Drew Stafford led the way as the Jets soared past the Leafs 6-1, before a sold-out crowd on Portage and Donald. The Jets are 6-1 at home against Toronto since 2011.

The Jets have struggled recently, going 3-7-0 in their last ten games. With team struggles comes talk of coaching. It's only a quite whisper, but it still exists out there.
We have come to a point where the Jets have had two coaches tenure over 100 games. Paul Maurice has now coached the Jets for 146 games, and quickly catching up to Claude Noel's 177 games with the Jets.
How have the Jets looked with Maurice versus their time with Noel? Let's take a look at the Jets performance between the two and get an idea of performance with some perspective.

Since arriving from Atlanta in 2011, the Winnipeg Jets have dominated the Toronto Maple Leafs at the MTS Centre. The Jets are 5-1 against the Buds when they meet up at the corner of Portage and Donald. The Jets hope to continue that trend when the Leafs pay their only visit to the Manitoba capital on Wednesday night.

Jacob Trouba is really good and the Winnipeg Jets shouldn't consider trading him, even if the return is a No. 1 defenseman on a team-friendly contract who hails from Manitoba originally and would love nothing more than to come home.
Thankfully for Jets fans, all signs point to the club being completely unwilling to part ways with the 22-year-old two-way defender.
While the latest reports suggest that Trouba will not be dangled as trade bait in a potential Travis Hamonic deal, an increasingly common theme in the reporting of the most plugged in insiders in the industry is that working out a contract extension with Trouba could prove difficult for the Jets.
