Know The Enemy: Winnipeg Jets

Chicago Blackhawks

We’re previewing the Central Division teams the Blackhawks will battle this season as we get ready for the new season. The Jets have underwhelmed for too long in the eyes of the organization and fans, so they made a couple massive changes this offseason… just not to their roster. They have a pending wants-out player in Pierre-Luc Dubois and hoe Cole Perfetti can work his magic into making them a strong playoff team this season. Some analysts aren’t thrilled, though.

How will they do?

IneffectiveMath Projection: 92.2 (4th in Central)
JFresh Projection: 98 (3rd in Central)
The Athletic Projection: 88.3 (6th in Central)
DraftKings Over/Under: 87.5 (6th in Central)

What’d I miss?

The Jets won’t have a captain this season, which is interesting.

And they’ll have a new head coach, bringing in Rick Bowness to hopefully solve their problems. We wish him luck!
