Enstrom Likely Done With Winnipeg Jets

May 26th, 2018 Toby Enstrom has been a good foot soldier for the Winnipeg Jets on the back end. While his offensive totals never approached that of his Atlanta Thrashers days, he was a calm, effective puck mover. The Jets were undoubtedly better with him on the ice this year. All that, however, may be soon...

The Winnipeg Jets had high hopes when they acquired Paul Stastny at the 2018 trade deadline. It's doubtful even they imagined him hitting these heights, however. With 15 points in 13 playoff games and a two-goal performance in the Game 7 victory over Nashville, Stastny has justified his high pricetag in a way few deadline rentals ever do. His play has helped propel the Jets to the conference finals for the first time in the city's history. A first-round pick and a promising prospect is no small price to pay for any player. For Winnipeg, whose first-round picks have almost universally been golden, it's an even steeper price than for most teams. Yet Stastny has proven worth it. In the regular season, Stastny filled a major void in the Jets forward core. In the playoffs, the man some are calling the new Mr. Game 7 made the Jets brass look brilliant for acquiring him. https://twitter.com/Sportsnet/status/994777759196073985 Scrolling through the list of previous deadline day...

The Winnipeg Jets — less than 48 hours removed from their decisive 5-1 win Game 7 win in Nashville — were right back on the ice for Game 1 of the Western Conference Final against the Vegas Golden Knights Saturday night at Bell MTS Place. They had little rest, but didn't look weary, rolling to a solid 4-2 win. Momentum Proves Better Than Rest In contrast to the Jets, who had a quick turnaround, the Golden Knights spent nearly a week waiting to see who their third round dance partner would be. Their second round series against the San Jose Sharks, which they won in six games, wrapped up back on May 6. There's always debate whether having time to rest between series is a positive or a detriment. On one hand, it can refresh a team and help them recover from nagging injuries. On the other hand, too much rest can cause a team to become rusty and not ready to face a team fired up and running hot after a recent win. There was some discussion as to how the gruelling seven-game...

Game 7 ended the way it began for the Nashville Predators and their fans, in heartbreak. Pekka Rinne had a rough first few minutes and spotted the Jets a two-goal lead. Predators head coach Peter Laviolette then made the call to pull the veteran and put in 23-year-old Juuse Saros. He kept his team in the game until about halfway through the third but it could've been over much sooner had Saros not been fantastic. Visiting teams rarely control the pace of a game but the Jets did exactly that through the majority of the first two periods and Paul Stastny was one of the main catalysts. He drove possession and scoring all night while leaving Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis spinning like turnstiles in their defensive zone. The Predators had no answer for Stastny or his line, which proved to be a season sinker. Stastny on the Board Stastny made a big splash in Game 7 as he scored two goals and one assist. The Jets struck early against the Predators as Tyler Meyers scored off a weak...
