It's been a pretty great week in Jets Nation. A frenetic win over Toronto, including a powerplay that looked like nothing we'd see all year (thank the Hockey Gods equivalent of baby Jesus), had the MTS Centre hopping. Points in four straight, a feeling like the playoffs are within reach. Derek Meech and Grant Clitsome look like contributors in the absence of Enstrom. The penalty kill has been perfect 9 games running. And maybe best of all, there is a string of good news on the prospect front, including Scheifele, Trouba, and rumours of college free agent signing on the horizon.

Inside a quick look at what we’re getting in Cormier.

It's old news now (like, two days!), but the Jets moved elder prospect Spencer Machacek for Czech winger Tomas Kubalik over the weekend. It's a small move, and neither player is likely to play 200 games in the NHL. Still, I'm obsessive, so we're going to talk about each player, why it happened, and what it means for the Jets after the jump!

Toronto Maple Leafs (15-10-1) @
Your Winnipeg Jets (12-11-2)
Last Meeting:
February 7th, Jets 2 - Leafs 3
TV: TSN Jets
Puck Drop: 7:00 (CT)


The Jets return home tonight after a rather disappointing road trip that saw them go 2-1-1, and end up sitting practically in the same place in the standings as they did when they left. Now the Jets are in a position where getting points against a feisty Leafs team is critical.
