Thoughts On TSN’s All-Time Jets Team

WWYDW: Changing One Thing About The Jets

Let’s face it, the Winnipeg Jets aren’t a perfect hockey club. I’d argue that they are one of the better ran teams in the National Hockey League, but not “perfect” and there are certainly things I’d do different if I was in charge. It isn’t a bad thing to want change either. Keeping things the…
