It's season three in Winnipeg and enough time has passed since the Jets returned to start a should, would, and could list for the team and franchise of the past two and change seasons as well as towards the present and future of the team.

The Jets big line showed up huge for them on Friday night, in a game that had more offense in it than their three previous meetings combined.

Safe to say this game turned out in a way that nobody expected. The Jets were able to overcome some rather questionable goaltending against the Wild and put up a 6-spot against one of the best defensive teams in the league.

Inspired by the Jets' love for the television show Suits, I started watching the program. It's a show about extremely well dressed corporate lawyer geniuses from Harvard who sometimes cross the line to do the right thing, and quote movie lines to each other until the conflict of the episode resolves itself. It ranks right up there with Entourage as a vacuous male empowerment fantasy, but it did help me realize the players' plan for the season. They're waiting for a deus ex machina moment to save them, a moment where Claude Noel will tilt his head during an unrelated conversation and says 'I've got it,' and then the team won't be able to lose.

Big Buf wants some love
Before the game against Minnesota, Gary Lawless tweeted a not-so-subtle criticism of Dustin Byfuglien as part of the on going campaign to villify the star defender, stating it "should be an interesting exercise to compare the games of Buff and Ryan Suter."
I wrote about what Byfuglien does on this roster here - namely, play the leagues best forwards, possess the puck more than the opposition, and score on pace with Subban, Letang, and Erik Karlsson. But I realize the numbers are just one side of things.
Inside are two photos that sum up the difference between Ryan Suter and Dustin Byfuglien better than any 1,000 words I can come up with.
