"The future ain't what it used to be. " - Yogi Berra

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

72 games have passed, and there's 10 games left in the regular season.  Back in October, the Jet's future in the season was bright and the team and it's fans were optimistic for the playoffs. Well, the future is here and it's not what we thought it would be for the Winnipeg Jets.  No playoffs in sight.  Time to reflect, take stock, and plan for the future again. Check out the following video of Blake Wheeler, who is definitely frustrated.  Blake was interviewed this morning, and by all accounts, is upset at a wasted year in his mind.  This interview was posted by CBC, but was not to be found on the Winnipeg Jets website, so take it for what it's worth...
