September has come, the weather is suppose to start turning cool and sports fans thoughts turn to football and hockey. It's that time of year once again. The National Hockey League, NHL, starts it's preseason just next week. All the bluffing and trading of the off season is done, it's time to see how the teams did. Lets take a look at the Winnipeg Jets.
The Winnipeg Jets play in the Central division of the Western conference. They finished last year with the record of 24-21-3, pretty average, which doesn't cut it with the fans. Hopes were high for this off season that some trade, the draft, and signings might bring a glimmer of hope for the Winnipeg Jets this season.
The big loss was Kyle Wellwood, the center to free agency. They were hit big by the free agency and lost a number of veteran players, which leaves them lacking in the depth department at a number of positions. This could be trouble for the Winnipeg Jets this year, especially with other teams bulking up in the depth department this off season. They will once again rely on the skills of goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
The Winnipeg Jets were able to make some good additions this off season, most notable, right wing Devin Setoguchi. They were also able to re-sign another right wing, Blake Wheeler to a six year contract and then re-sign defensemen, Zach Bogosian to seven year contract,; which will give them some stability. They have shored up the right quite well, and hopefully that will be what they need to turn the corner and make a run for the playoffs this year.
The Winnipeg Jets will start the preseason at home with a game against Washington on September 14th. That's only next week, so we don't have long to wait to see if the trades and pick-ups are going to make the difference they are hoping they will make. Looking forward to another great year of hockey.
