Winnipeg Jets 2013-14

I would not call the Jets’ offseason a good one. After having another unsuccessful season, they could not acquire any key pieces. They were 25th in defense with 144 goals against, and not having much luck offensively. There was not much done to improve them.

A couple acquisitions that they made was obtaining Michael Frolik and David Setoguchi. Frolik and Setoguchi will bring some solid depth and maybe a bit of offense, but not much else. Signing Adam Pardy will bring depth defensively, but again, it was nothing big.

A couple key moves they made was re-signing Zach Bogosian and Brian Little. A seven year, $36 million contract is a risk, though. Even though Bogosian is a solid defenseman, that kind of contract for him is a bit of a gamble. It’s hard to say if he’ll live up to $5.1 million. Brian Little was signed to a 5 year, $23.5 million contract. He is a solid playmaker that is key to the offense. Also signed to a long term contract was Blake Wheeler, who was given a six-year, $33.6 million deal.

Like I said, besides re-signing key assets, they didn’t do much to improve the team, and may have spent a little to much on those three guys. They will not be making the playoffs this season.
