Winnipeg Jets Season Preview
Thrashers Jets are coming off a season that saw them finish in 12th spot in the East and miss the playoffs. Let’s not forget that the Jets are in the Southeast Division with the Caps, Lightning, Canes, and Panthers. It is going to be a strange travel schedule for the Jets with none of their division opponents even remotely close to them. Let’s take a look at the upcoming season for the Jets.
Notables Joining the Jets:
F Eric Fehr, F Tanner Glass, D Randy Jones, D Derek Meech, F Kenndal McArdle
Notables Leaving the Jets:
F Radek Dvorak, F Anthony Stewart, F Eric Boulton, F Rob Schremp, D Freddy Meyer
Things could be worse for Jets fans. They took over a Thrashers team that has some exciting players like Evander Kane, Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd, Zack Bogosian, Blake Wheeler, and Patrice Cormier. Will a packed arena every night inspire the Jets players? Will the schedule be too much to overcome. Actually, there are 9 more teams in the NHL that will travel more miles this season than the Winnipeg Jets. So the grueling schedule from playing in the Southeast Division may be over hyped. However, packed arena’s for every home game will most certainly help.
We predict everything falls into place for the Jets this season and they make it into the playoffs with a 7th place finish in the East.
From a betting perspective:
The Jets are long shots to win the Stanley Cup at odds of 60 to 1 at Bodog Sportsbook.
Why Betting On The Winnipeg Jets With Proline Sucks?
If you want to bet on the Winnipeg Jets with Proline or Sport Select you have to bet two other teams with them. If you bet online you can bet single games. Therefore you can place a straight bet on the Jets to win. So if the Jets win you win. You don’t need the other 2 or 3 teams to win also.
