The Winnipeg Jets have been struggling to win games, so let's go over and take a look at the Manitoba Moose... who are also struggling.
Well, at least we can take a look at the individuals on the Moose to gauge the potential future help from the farm team.

Different angle on the Malkin hit. High and leaves his feet. Wheeler didn't have the puck. pic.twitter.com/0t0boLPDrd— Shayne Pasquino (@shaynepasquino) February 17, 2017
In the third period of yesterday's game between the Winnipeg Jets and Pittsburgh Penguins, Evgeny Malkin crushed Blake Wheeler with a questionable hit. As you can see in the slowed down video above, Malkin clearly left his feet, targeted the head of Wheeler, and, most obviously, hit the Jets captain when he didn't have the puck.
Wheeler went to the quiet room for concussion protocol, but did return to the ice to finish the game. He isn't expected to miss any time with an injury from the hit.

Mathieu Perreault is having a rough year.
He's struggled to stay healthy and has seen a decline in production which has lead to his name being in the trade rumour mill. Perreault is an affordable skilled forward that can help many teams through the course of a playoff run. He is a forty point producer on the Jets, and has helped on any line he's played on. When we get to this point in the season, you have to consider if the Jets are a buying team or a selling team.
So the question is do the Winnipeg Jets move Perreault before the trade deadline?

Curtis Lazar was healthy scratched again, so we have to talk about the possibility of his days in Ottawa being numbered. Again! And Jaromir Jagr reaches another milestone, becoming the second player in NHL history to record 1900 career points.
