Jets Start Season in a Hole: When Is the Window to Compete?

Entering November, the Jets sit in 25th place with an underwhelming 9 points in 10 games and a 26th ranked goal differential. Of four wins, three have come against teams in the bottom-third of the standings and a playoff appearance is as far away as any October on record.

The question of when the Jets intend to compete seems to linger under this General Manager. We talked about the team's intended window of opportunity at the trade deadline of 2012/13 when the team had a host of pending UFAs to sell and a few holes the GM talked about filling but never did. The mixed signals continued unabated. I suggested two years ago that the team might be lining up to compete for Connor McDavid, but that seemed like a silly notion in September 2014 after the team took some small steps forward each of the last two off-seasons and iced their best top-6 since moving north to start this campaign.

Sadly, with an injury to Kane exposing a lack of depth and the expected failures of Pavelec all but ending the Jets' playoff hopes before November, the question rises again: does GM Kevin Cheveldayoff have a plan for the Jets to be a playoff team? And if so, when?
