Not everything has gone as planned for the Winnipeg Jets. After making the playoffs for the second time in franchise history, and first time since the move, the team is still without a playoff win and appear to be a long shot for playing postseason hockey two years in a row.
Not everything is dark and dreary; there are some good things going on in Jets Nation. One thing that always tends to cheer up fans is prospects, as they represent future hope and potential.
Let's look at how the Jets prospects have developed using NHL Equivalent scoring.

With the All-Star break coming up very quickly, the Winnipeg Jets would like to head into the break on a high note.
However, high notes have been few and far between as of late. The Jets had a good opportunity to start regaining some ground in the Central Division Monday night against the Colorado Avalanche, but ultimately fell short in a gutsy 2-1 loss.
They Jets have another chance tonight though, when they take on the Nashville Predators for the second time in a week and third time in 16 days.

The Winnipeg Jets recently paired Jacob Trouba and Dustin Byfuglien together, despite both being right handed shots. The results have been pretty good with the two on the ice. There has been a negative byproduct though.
The Jets have been forced to place Ben Chiarot on his off-handed side with Mark Stuart. And that is a problem.
