1. The Jets win the Stanley Cup

As I mentioned on the first slide, it was heartbreak for the Jets during the 2021 postseason. This was no new news for Winnipeg supporters when you add in the fact, the Jets have lost in the postseason the last four seasons. But since this article is about “bold predictions” our next prediction is that the Jets will be the Stanely Cup Champions in 2022.

First, the Jets have the goaltending that is needed to win the Cup. The 2020 Vezina Trophy Winner, Connor Hellebuyck, has again played outstanding this season and when he is on his game, the Jets are a tough team to beat.  Also, Winnipeg made some key acquisitions on defense this past offseason by acquiring veteran defensemen Brenden Dillon and Nate Schmidt.

Once Blake Wheeler is back healthy, the Jets have a solid group of veteran forwards at their disposal. Kevin Cheveldayoff may look to add one or two forwards towards the middle of the season or at the trade deadline to give the Jets some more depth upfront.

Time and time again, it feels like the Jets are on the cusp of greatness. In 2017-2018, the Jets lost in the Western Conference Finals and have made the postseason every year since. The Jets have the tools to be a contender and 2022 may be the year Winnipeg supporters have been waiting for.
