WWYDW: Who do you play for the Jets starting position?

Welcome to this week’s version of What Would You Do Wednesday where you are asked a question and debate among yourselves what the answer is. Unfortunately, the only prize you will receive will be the most Twitter mentions. 

This week’s WWYDW asks how you would play Connor Hellebuyck.

Take a read and let us know what you think!

Connor Hellebuyck
was called up once Ondrej Pavelec went down with injury. The
intention seemed to be that he would back up Michael Hutchinson, but
that did not happen. Hellebuyck stole the starting position, starting
26 games and posting a 2.34 Goals Against Average a .918 save
percentage.

Hellebuyck is ready
for full time NHL action. The question is, should he be the starter?
He has the talent, but not the experience. Assuming the seas don’t
part, Pavelec will still be with the Jets for the 2016-17 season.
Should Hellebuyck split starts with Pavelec, back Pavelec up, or be
named the starter?

What Would You Do Jets Nation?

Is Hellebuyck the guy to lead the Jets back to the playoffs?

As always leave your answers and suggestions in the comments or on Twitter with the #wwydw hash tag and mention to @NHLJetsNation and/or me @canadiankyian.

  • A good way to combat that lack of experience is to throw him into the fire. Won’t be gaining much from riding the bench every game. So experience with Helly isnt a big issue, IMO.

    Split Pavs and Helly 50/50 at the start of the season. When its apparent that Halibut has outperformed Pavs (inevitable!) in the new season, hand over more starts to the kid, e.g. 55-45,60-40,etc.

  • ground control

    Let them all fight it out. I would include Hutchinson in that group if they sign him in the offseason. The one who plays the best earns the starting job regardless of contract. I like the depth and competition we are going to see next year at all positions.
