There wasn’t any history before us. We got a chance to start a new chapter, and I’m happy to be a part of that

The Winnipeg Jets are going to win the Stanley Cup in 2019. It’s true because the guys from The Hockey News wrote it in the paper. Or at least we predicted it in our annual Future Watch issue four years ago. And nothing has happened so far this season to cause us to backpedal from that prediction. So much has to go so right for a team to be the last one standing in June, and that will be the case again this year. But take one look at the Jets and it’s clear they have the size, the skill and the depth to be that team and end the 26-year Stanley Cup drought for Canada.
Before they can do that, though, the Jets have to get through the grind of the regular season....
