The question over the last few years isn’t who will the Jets
play in the first round, rather will they even make the playoffs?!?! The conversation is getting a little old as
we’ve expected to be on the bubble of the post season since the Jets made their
return to our (One) Great City (That was a Weakerthans reference for those
Is the shine wearing off?
Are we getting tired of hearing the same shit out of the offices at 345
Graham; “We’re building through the draft”?!
Some have subscribed to this theory and are hoping for the Jets to crash
and get a better crack at adding McDavid and/or Eichel to the roster. Truth be told it would be the first time we’ve
had a draft pick that could jump into the line-up without having to spend
another year in Junior or and EXTRA year in the American League (theahl.com).
If you look in the bullpen for the Jets this season, we have
only 2 players out of our 30 picks that have made the full roster for the
duration of the season, both of those players were inside the top 10 picks (Sheifele
and Trouba). Ehlers looks like he might
crack the line-up next year after putting on some man weight (similar to what
Scheifele had to do), and Petan might fit in well with the Ice Caps after his
last year of Junior, but with Scheifele, Little, Perrault and Slater, there’s
not a lot of room down the middle.
So, the question remains for this season, would you rather
see the team tank and get a crack at the #1 or #2 pick in the 2015 NHL Entry
draft!? Or see the Jets make the post
season for the first time since the 2006/07 (Hotlanta Thrashers) season? Leave your comments below (bonus points for
