For one, we are not the Los Angeles Kings. I don't for one second believe this team has a magical cinderella run in it. More likely a 1st round a$$ whooping at the hands of the Penguins or even a quick 4 or 5 game exit to the Canadiens.

Jets just don't have the kind of depth required for a deep run. In a year or two that may change.
IMHO there is a far better chance having those two in the lineup help us win a couple playoff games then 2nd round picks do becoming meaningful NHL players.

If it looks like you are going to make the playoffs, you add depth, you don't subtract it. That sends a bad message to your players and your fans, and could very well hurt your bottom line.

Go Jets Go!
