Apologies for the slightly clickbait-type title. I will not be making the Winnipeg Jets goaltending woes disappear. However, I will be taking an in-depth look at the Jets and their netminding. I will weigh the options and then make suggestions on what the Jets could do with some pros and cons to each option.
Let's get into it.

Light week for the Jets Nation Air Mail this week which is a tad understandable as Jets fans feel a bit worn down after two brutal uninspired losses and an OT loss where the Jets maybe deserved a little bit better a fate.
As always, if you have a Jets or hockey related question in general burning away in your head, be sure to @ reply our Twitter account with the hashtag #JNAirMail and we'll get to answering it next week

There is a big part of me that has always wanted to view hockey as a sport for good people.
The motivation for this is, at least in part, self-serving. I devote many hours of my time every year to hockey. I watch well over 82 games a season and there are hockey-based publications I read every day. I find myself emotionally involved in the fate of my team. I get excited by the potential for improvement in every offseason.

The Jets need roughly 25 wins in their last 36 games to make the playoffs this year.
At the rate there playing at, it doesn't appear they will make a postseason appearance. They continually drop points like they intend to be in the mix for the first overall pick. Now that would have been okay in the past, but that's not acceptable today. The Jets have the talent that should make them a contender for a wild card spot.

Hollywood. Where dreams come true. However, some dreams can turn into nightmares. For a brief spell, it looked like the Winnipeg Jets would fashion a script that would finally include a happy ending. But in pure cinematic cruelty, the Jets couldn't get the job done in the end and fell 3-2 in overtime to the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Centre.
