Winnipeg Jets New Year’s Resolutions

2015 was a wild ride for the Winnipeg Jets and their fans. A short but memorable trip to the playoffs was the highlight of the year while the Evander Kane trade to Buffalo was the biggest news story of 2015. But what will 2016 bring? That, we’re not sure yet. However, with each year end, most people make resolutions for the upcoming year in order to improve themselves. The Jets are no different.

So, we here at Jets Nation have come up with some resolutions for players and management so that the Jets can see better days in 2016.

Dustin Byfuglien: To remain an unstoppable force and get paid large money come July 1.

Paul Postma: To find the most comfortable chair in the press box because he’ll never see the ice again at this rate.

Nikolaj Ehlers: To make Chris Thorburn a scoring sensation so that the Calder Trophy can be within reach again.

Chris Thorburn: To make Nikolaj Ehlers look good so that elusive promotion to the top line can finally happen.

Connor Hellebuyck: To never play another game for the Manitoba Moose again.

Blake Wheeler: To take over the captaincy of the team.

Mark Scheifele: To avoid Andrew Ladd at practice at all times.

Mark Stuart: To never look at analytical charts and graphs.

Adam Lowry: To avoid Paul Maurice’s doghouse. 

Tyler Myers: To spend a few extra minutes in the gym so he can fill out his 6-7 frame.

Drew Stafford: To try to make everyone in Winnipeg forget about Evander Kane. (Won’t happen.)

Kevin Cheveldayoff: To make a significant move at some point and move the franchise out of the rut it’s currently in. (I can dream can’t I?)

Mark Chipman: To make sure Bill Watters never makes another appearance on the rights holders radio station. 

Winnipeg Jets Fans: To stock up on heart medication pills. 2016 promises more drama and intrigue than Game Of Thrones without the gratuitous blood and nudity. (Well, some blood. It is hockey after all.)

Happy New Year!

    If Chipman is spending all this time in the Jets dressing room then maybe he should just watch from his private booth…that way he’s more apt to make informed decisions on the team’s direction rather than the team’s logos…

    • I sincerely hope that Chipman is hanging out in the room because Thorburn and Stuart are such great dressing room guys, and that Chevy is allowed to make his moves (albeit infrequent and reluctant moves) without interference from ownership.

      I doubt that’s true, but I want it to be.
