Christmas time is here and, at the Holiday break, there are many reasons for optimism regarding the 2021-2022 Winnipeg Jets.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Winnipeg Jets Fans. At Christmas, the Jets are currently thirty games into their 82 game season and currently sit in fifth place in the Central Division.

This season has been a topsy-turvy one for the Jets. We’ve seen the highs of the Jets pick up points in twelve out of thirteen games from late October to mid-November and the lows of a seven-game losing streak.

But there are plenty of reasons for optimism regarding this Jets team and the 2021-2022 season can prove to be a successful one for them.

Here are our top three reasons for optimism for the Jets:

3. Still a long way to go

As mentioned above, the Jets are in fifth place at this point of the season, but they have only played 30 games. There is still a lot of hockey left to be played.

The Jets still have 52 games left this season, which is only four games less than they placed all last year in the 56-game shortened regular season.

Winnipeg is not in a bad spot either. Although they currently are outside of the playoff picture, they are only three points behind a wild card spot and six points out of a divisional playoff spot.

There is no need to panic yet about the Jets. Winnipeg still has a majority of the season left and there is plenty of time for them to solidify their place in the playoffs.
