Winnipeg Jets Tickets

The Winnipeg Jets open the 2013 NHL a hockey team ready to make amends for the years these Manitoban fans had to endure the lack of Canada’s favorite sport. They arrived last season and struggled, but expect to play a much more competitive brand of hockey, making Winnipeg Jets tickets to the MTS Centre more than just a welcome party.

The addition of a pair of veterans to the front line is going to make the development of the next generation of stars far more enjoyable. Veteran Olli Jokinen is expected to waver between the first and second line. The center is going to push Bryant Little on the first line. Little is playing between Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler. Ladd and Wheeler tower over Little. Ladd’s game is that of a bruiser, but he has the potential to be more. Firmly in his mid-20s it is now or never for him to make such a jump on the first line. Wheeler is a 6-foot-5 right wing with the size and speed to hold his position on the ice and the kind of puck play to be a very effective scorer.

The Jets back line of the first line is composed of Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien. Enstrom may be undersized for a hockey player, but he is a great playmaker and a perfect addition to this young line. Byfuglien makes up for Enstrom’s size with a physical style of play and, when he is in shape, he can score. This makes Winnipeg’s first line pretty impressive.

Jokinen will spend most of his time on the second line where he will play with Evander Kane and Kyle Wellwood. Kane is not a playmaker, making the addition of Jokinen a savior for him. Wellwood is ultimately a placeholder, but he has very good hands and has become a serviceable defensive presence. They are joined by defensemen Ron Hainsey and Zach Bogosian. Hainsey is really more of a stay-at-home defender, and once the injured Bogosian returns he will be playing with a talented two-way blue liner. The Winnipeg Jets may ultimately come down to the man in goal, Ondrej Pavelec. Pavelec is a young goalie with the potential to be something special, though he still has to prove he is at least part of the mid-tier of goalies before the Winnipeg Jets can truly be competitive in the Southeast Division.
