No. 24: Winnipeg Jets

Previous: No. 26

Record:  23-25-4 (50 points)

The Jets have got the Chicago Blackhawks’ number this year (they’ve won all four games so far), but other than that they’re pretty much living in the basement.  They sit in front of only Arizona and Colorado in the Western Conference wildcard standings, fighting for the fifth place spot with the Dallas Stars.  Besides beating the Hawks (again!), the Jets have lost two tilts this past week.  Playoff hopes are fading fast.
