Winnipeg Jets training camp opens on September 13, 2019.  Please use this thread to discuss the Jets in the season ahead.

We will leave the 2018/2019 season thread up for a few more weeks and then archive it.

Can't believe hockey season is almost upon us again... Man, this summer flew by.

I expect this team is going to look pretty different compared to the previous few seasons. Trouba, Myers, Tanev gone... Those were some pretty big pieces. I'm interested to see who steps up and what prospects can take the next step in their development going into the 2019/20 season.

I fully expect the Central to be a meatgrinder again this season.

i will be surprised if the Jets make the playoffs this year...i think it will be a close one and they miss by a couple of points.  I don't think anyone could say the team actually got better in the offseason.  some of the younger players will have more experience and that may help a bit but there were no big jumps in talent coming into this team...if fact just the opposite.

Wow, that's a huge development! Kicks in next season, too. Great to have this stud locked up for the foreseeable future!

AAV of 6.25 is a steal for Morrissey. Even paying him 8M next year and the year after is perfectly good value for money.

Hopefully wife buys me a Morrissey home jersey for Christmas Smiley

This is Chevy at his best... dumps Trouba who gets $8mil, signs Morrissey at $6.25mil.

Now that 44 is figured, lets get 29 and 81 signed / traded Wink

Couldn't sign him, so he offloaded him for assets.  Probably held onto him a year too long, though... might have gotten more in return last year, but he used him like a self rental...

Also Chiarot is gone...

We shall see if any of the defensive prospects can take the next step this season.

Fantastic news! Morrisey is exactly the type of player that we needed to lock up. And the fact that he really wanted to stay here is awesome! Hope to hear a Laine/Connor signing this weekend!?
