Blake Wheeler's 'worst year' has nothing to do with Blake Wheeler https://t.co/N4WC68uKEa— CBC Manitoba (@CBCManitoba) March 23, 2016
Let's look ahead, shall we? Next year, the Winnipeg Jets could have a forward group shaping up like this;
Thorburn, Copp, Kosmachuk, De Leo, and Lipon are all "potentially" on the outside looking in. Depending who the Jets nab in the upcoming draft, the list of outsiders may increase. What changes would you make? Your comments are welcome below.
We'll take a look at the defense for next year on Saturday in the Jets/ Sabres Game Day Thread, and the goaltenders on Monday in the Jets/ Flyers Game Day Thread.
