FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsThe Winnipeg Jets of the NHL have from time to time shown themselves to be a very different team from the others and not in a good sense. Their performance has been below mediocre and the choices they have made have been even poorer. And the signings they have done have not been noteworthy and most have ended up hurting them.
 
They have so far not made it to the playoffs and the trades they have done have not stood out. Throughout the season they have been below the radar sort of team. So when the NHL trade deadline approached, they had the same response and did not do anything. The only thing that did stand out was that they awarded a contract extension.
 
The Jets gave their defenseman Mark Stuart a contract extension spanning over 4 years that is worth $10.5 million. This will mean that they will be having a $2.625 cap hit in the coming years of 2017-2018.
 
For the Jets fans this may be the source of some unrestful news not because of the contract but nothing big is happening. Apart from this, the only news worthy of being mentioned about the Winnipeg Jets is that their Mark Scheifele is injured. They are way hungrier than the other teams to get a playoff berth and to do that they will have to really fight.
 
To achieve that their main players will have to improve their performance. Without their key players, they do not stand a chance.
 
Stuart is not stand out players. His stats are just average with 81 penalty minutes and 29 points over a total of 50 games that he has played from year 2013-2014. He is in his fourth year in the NHL with the Winnipeg Jets.
