Winnipeg Jets 2011-12 preview

  • Guess who’s back? With much pomp and pageantry the Winnipeg Jets have returned to the NHL, with their season opening Sunday, Oct. 9 when the Montreal Canadiens come to town. The Jets didn’t do much to improve the team coming from Atlanta that failed to qualify for the playoffs four straight seasons. There is young talent in the lineup, but will that be enough to vault the team to the post-season?

    On this edition of the THN Puck Panel we preview the 2011-12 Winnipeg Jets. Host Edward Fraser is joined by writers Ryan Kennedy and Ken Campbell to discuss… Mark Scheifele’s amazing development… Evander Kane as a superstar in the making... Why Dustin Byfuglien needs to improve his defensive play… Why it’s time for Zach Bogosian to shine… And the competition between Ondrej Pavelec and Chris Mason in net.
