  • DRAFTSITE DRAFT PREVIEW

Team Needs: C, D, RW, LW

Welcome to the Cap Crunch era. The Jets were a team whose poor records resulted in being able to successfully draft many excellent dominant young players who were good enough to succeed quickly as NHLers, thereby expecting to get paid as such. So we see a Jets team that has already start to dismantling before winning anything. They can try to make trades, but we know how teams improve: when they are given the chance to draft well and develop prospects. Defenseman Dylan Samberg has left the University of Minnesota at Duluth and joined the organization. He is a gem of as second rounder with size, mobility and physicality. Ville Heinola, a first rounder last year is undersized prospect with smarts and displays skills that make him capable of being an NHLer. Giant first rounder Logan Stanley, taken 18th overall has show he is able to stay with AHL attackers, much less handling the elite speed of the ones in the NHL. None of them translate into first pair players at this juncture. Their AHL farm is also developing a smart defensive centre in David Gustafsson. Not fleet afoot or destined to be a big point producer, he is good on the draw and projects as a defensive specialist who a plays tough workload tenderizing the opposition. Another first rounder they’re waiting on is big Finn LW Kristian Vesalainen, who is also in the AHL, a guy whose arrived with a heavy shot, good wall work, and high tempo game. only to find a more difficult pace, lack of space that he install adjusting to. hey have an early first and a second and 5th and a 6th to try start the restocking. So the Jets might just not over-think selecting a defenseman at slot ten. Or just wait and see which scoring forward has dropped into to their laps.
