GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Colorado Avalanche

A Valentine’s Day match between the Winnipeg Jets and the Colorado Avalanche 

NHL: Colorado Avalanche at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Introduction:

It looks like Connor Hellebuyck will get the start tonight against the Avalanche in a game that will have scouts and executives in attendance from the Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers. Read into that what you will. I hope they kept a close eye on Nic Petan in the pre-game skate. He’s available with a first round draft pick, and yours for the low, low price of Mark Stone or Matt Duchene! Trade today and we’ll include Logan Stanley! And that’s not all, as an added bonus we’ll throw in Marko Dano! But, this is a friend price. Because we like you. Please don’t go telling other teams.

It’s a home game against a team that has really struggled, so the Jets need to make things easier on themselves, and put this one away early and convincingly. Colorado’s top line is elite, so they will see their fair share of the Adam Lowry line and likely some Mark Scheifele as well.
