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 revolves around Kyle Connor.
The Winnipeg Jets
have a good problem; there is an abundance of good young talent on
the cusp of being ready for full time NHL action in the Jets’ farm system. One such player is
Kyle Connor, who signed an entry level contract with the Jets earlier this off-season.
Connor scored 71
points with the University of Michigan and oozes skill, speed and projects to be a top-six player.
The Jets have a
pretty set top-six, so Connor would most likely start off in the
bottom-six, with some powerplay time on the second unit.
If the Jets start
Connor with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL, this would allow Connor to
gain more professional experience through playing larger amounts of
minutes and becoming “the man.”
Now, where Connor
starts will also depend on how well he performs during training camp.
What Would You Do
Should the Jets start Kyle Connor with the Jets?
Does Connor start the year with the Manitoba Moose?
Does Connor get traded for a good young defenceman because the Jets
have a stockpile of young forwards?
