Happy Leap Year Day everyone! That's a thing right?
This week we look into Bryan's little skate with a fractured back, have a definitive word about which goalie will end up gone and look at which Jets will be playing international hockey in September for the World Cup.

The Winnipeg Jets yesterday placed left-shot, depth defender Adam Pardy on waivers yesterday.
There were no reports or explanation given why the Jets exposed a pending-free-agent, depth-player less than 24 hours away from the NHL roster limit being lifted. However, it was speculated that the Jets were giving Pardy an opportunity to play elsewhere to give him a chance to earn a contract for next season.

Pardy did not move far on the waiver wire, as the Edmonton Oilers picked Pardy up, along with the Vancouver Canucks' Adam Cracknell.

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.
