No. 15 – Winnipeg Jets

Previous: No. 26

The Jets started the season slow, losing their first two games to the Leafs and Flames, but have since rebounded by winning the last three straight games.  Nikolaj Ehlers just signed a new contract and seems to be worth it, leading the team with five goals and seven points.  A coupleanalysts picked the Jets to be a playoff team this year, but that will depend on guys like Patrick Laine, Mark Scheifele and Dustin Byfuglien.  In a Central Division that is again loaded with talented teams, the Jets will need their young stars to help them become more than just a bubble team this year.
