Let’s face it; the Winnipeg Jets aren’t playing good. It is unbelievable how many games they have lost in a row, with 7 regulation losses. During these games, the ratio of opponents goals to jets goals, was 28-10, other teams almost scoring three times as much as they did! What I find so weird about this team, is how inconsistent they are. When they are on their game, no one can beat them, but when there off it, their absolutely terrible. Also, what is with them losing right before the play-offs? It seems to happen every year, and with each loss bringing them closer to playing the Edmonton Oilers, the play-off season may not last long for the jets.
Like I said before, the Jets can be really good. For example; the first half of the Jets regular season, was amazing. The Jets were winning the vast percentage of games, almost catching to the Maple Leaf’s. Almost every game, they would come out flying, and beat the opponents, no matter who they were facing. With there fast pace, pinpoint passing, and accurate shots, their offence was never better. Until it happened. The losing streak that set them back, putting them in an okay 3rd place, instead of the good 2nd place spot.
With the Oilers most likely playing the Jets in the play-offs, it is not looking good for the Jets. With a total record of 2-5 against the Oilers, we can see that playing them is not looking good. I will try to stay positive though, because there is always a chance, but unless they can come up with that extra gear, it could be a short play-off season.
