WWYDW: Build Your Own Defence

Welcome to this weeks version of What Would You Do Wednesday where you are asked a question and debate among yourselves. Fortunately, the only prize you will receive will be the most Twitter mentions. 

This week’s WWYDW looks asks if the Jets have better options on defence sitting in the press box or playing for the Manitoba Moose. Take a read and let us know!

The Jets have a log
jam of mediocre defenceman playing with potentially better options
sitting in the press box or playing for the Manitoba Moose. Defence
has not been a strong suit of the Jets, especially on the penalty
kill. Jets management has been reluctant to make a move, though this
is true for the majority of the league.

Supreme Leader
Garret has alluded to this, but he thinks Paul Postma is a better
option on the third pairing than Mark Stuart. Postma has only played two games, so far, in the 2015-16 season.

Adam Pardy has
played 10 games and has a single assist on the 2015-16 season. Should
Pardy be slotted into the lineup?

Josh Morrissey is
playing on the farm for the Manitoba Moose. Should the Jets’ prospect
get a look with the Jets?

The Jets are
floundering, unable to build off of their success achieved during the
2014-15 season for the 2015-16 season. Tinkering with assets the Jets
have is the most logical choice, at the moment, in order to push for
the playoffs.

What what would you
do Jets Nation?

The Jets defence can
use some tinkering, with some better options potentially sitting in the press box or playing for the Manitoba Moose.

Can the Jets
continue without making changes to their defence?

Who would you
scratch (if anyone)? Who would you like to see play together?

As always leave your
answers and lineup suggestions in the comments or on Twitter with the

    Pardy-Postma 3rd pair. Pardy is slow but he carried Keaton Ellerby in 3rd pairing minutes, he’s better than Chiarot and Stuart.

    Postma is showing on the Moose exactly what the Jets are missing out by not playing him, a solid PP point option, 5v5 shot generator, mediocre in his own end – also better than Chiarot and Stuart.

    Defence is not the problem – it’s the lack of scoring from too many young inexperienced forwards being introduced at once. Enstrom, Myers, Trouba and Buff are all moving the puck well and the Stuart Chiarot duo are getting more comfortable together – solid stay at home, shot blocking bottom pairing. Let Morrissey keep developing on the farm. Pardy is a solid 7 th but Postma is just too meek defensively despite above average offensive skill and skating, IMO he either needs to get some nasty in his game or be moved out.
