Winnipeg fans are happy having a team back at home. I think they are going to be in for a pleasant surprise this postseason.
The Winnipeg Jets are heating up, with a 6-3-1 record in their last 10 games. Although we aren't anywhere near the home stretch yet, this may be a sign of things to come for the young Jets.
Dustin Byfuglien has ignited after getting off to a slow start. Powerplay quarterback Tobias Enstrom is back from injury. Twenty-year-old sophomore Evander Kane is having a stellar year, with 15 goals and 26 points through 34 games.
The Jets' biggest question, and the reason why they are the lowest team on this list, is goaltending. Ondrej Pavelec is quietly having a good, not great, year, with a .909 save percentage and a 2.91 GAA. Come playoff time, though, Pavelec may be more vulnerable.
With a much better fan base and a new team identity, the Jets just may be poised to make a splash in their inaugural season.
