No. 24: Winnipeg Jets

Previous: No. 21

Record: 30-33-7 (67 points)

The Jets really need goaltending, and GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is starting to make Winnipeg fans very angry. Before the Drew Stafford trade, the last trade he made was the Andrew Ladd deal before the deadline last year. It’s obvious he doesn’t like to make moves. But if they’re not one of the teams looking for a goalie from the free agent market this offseason, he might be looking for a new job next year.
