The Winnipeg Jets had a disappointing season last year. After a 2014-15 campaign that saw them make the playoffs for the first time since arriving, the fan base believed they would be seeing a lot more "whiteouts" in the coming years.

Two seasons ago, the Ottawa Senators finished off the latter half of their season in impressive fashion. They went on what was known as “The Miracle Run," where backup goaltender Andrew "The Hamburglar" Hammond went on a serious hot streak and helped the team win 21 of their last 27 games of the season.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The Canucks are five years removed from their crushing Game 7 defeat at the hands of the Boston Bruins. In reality, it feels like that loss happened 50 years ago. Even the 2014-15 campaign, where the Canucks surprised everyone by finishing eighth overall in the NHL, seems like a mirage. The 2015-16 season...
