The hockey world is buzzing about the Winnipeg Jets and their continued growth the past several seasons, even so The Hockey News is sticking to their prediction from the Future Watch 2015 issue where they tout the Jets will be the 2019 Stanley Cup Champions. Can the Jets live up to these expectations?
2. How will the Jets handle the adversity?
With how close the Jets were to the Stanley Cup Finals this past postseason they cannot sit back and be content with how they are currently. They are going to have to push back all of the adversity that will be put before them this season and continue to play hard.
