It could easily be argued that Paul Postma is indeed the top prospect in the Winnipeg Jets organization. Young, skilled defensemen quite simply are very hard to come by. The Jets organization are flush with young (ish) talent on the blue line in Winnipeg and that has enabled them to be very patient with Postma and let him further his development in St. John’s. If a spot opens up for him next fall, he should be more than ready to grab it.

So lets be honest about this. Did ANYONE expect to wake up on February 25th and find the Jets in first place in their division?

The Jets looked like a team on a mission last night, dominating the Lightning for 55 minutes before giving up some late goals in garbage time en route to a 4-3 win.

I don't necessarily have a bone to pick with Ondrej Pavelec, because at the start of the season if you told me that the Winnipeg Jets were going to make the playoffs, I would have told you that it would be "thanks to" and not "in spite of" the young Jets goaltender.
Pavelec has played some amazing hockey games this season, however, he's also put up some stinkers. Remarkably inconsistent, but terrifyingly fun to watch when he's at his best, Pavelec is the kind of goalie who could win you a playoff series as an underdog.
However I think that people tend to get carried away with some saves that he's made. Specifically, this one against Philadelphia:
