Connor Hellebuyck believes Winnipeg Jets are close to becoming 'a dynasty' - TSN.ca
They did take a run at Evans, to be fair.
As a Jets fan.....please Connor, never ever use the word Dynasty for a team that hasn't won a damn thing and is currently moving in the WRONG direction.
There must be a gas leak in their locker room because their interviews were wild as f***.
Between this and "DOPS had it out for me" - yikers.
Oh boy...Just take it on the chin and don't say things you will regret lol
He's not wrong, but they need to improve their defense and figure out some of their "aging veteran" issues, cause Wheeler looked lost out on the ice against Montreal. I think Perfetti will help them a fair bit in the next season or two, but how long will their window be open for, when he's ready to take on more responsbility? Looks like they really have about a 3-4 year window before contracts start to catch up to them. I think they "can" do it...but there needs to be a mentality shift in the locker room. Not sure if that means a new coach or what. There just seem to be more questions than answers for Winnipeg. Love watching them play, but there is definitely a missing component for them.
Hellebuyck's always a confident guy, which is a great thing for a goalie to be IMO.
The thing I don't like in that article is Wheeler saying how amazing Maurice always is.
What you mean "He's not wrong"? Of course he is wrong until they actually make these runs. They've been down this same line for years now. Even mentioning a dynasty makes it absolutely ridiciculous.
You have to win something first before you can be on your way to becoming a dynasty.
"Player confident in his teams ability to win"
does he know what a dynasty is?
Did he mean to say contender?
When's the last time a guy said his team was close to being a dynasty before having won his first championship? That doesn't include NFL wide receivers.
Right...but how many times do teams say (Tampa is just the recent example) that they are just a piece away from making multiple Cup runs? The issue is that players, today, use the word "Dynasty" too flippantly. If you simply mean it say that they think they can get a number of consecutive long playoff runs...then he is more than likely correct. They botched their defense corps a couple of years ago and need to upgrade it again, as well figure out how to deal with their current mental situation.
his team is better than the leafs so... dynasty confirmed?
That’s a very loose way to use the word dynasty
I fully understand many of the players aren't too bright, but something like "Dynasty" is not a word even they'd use lightly, as they actually understand what that means from hockey perspective.
Can you link me any Tampa player even mentioning the word "Dynasty" or anything hinting to that? I've not seen it ever.
If Perfetti lives up to the billing this will be an interesting team for sure.
Hard not to like the potenital of Scheifele, PLD, Perfetti down the middle. But this is some Toronto stuff by Helle.
Jets are going out sad lol
I don't like that Laine + Roslovic trade. Dubois is an OK player but fairly vanilla, they were a more interesting, exciting team before IMO.
Yikes, he really fumbled that last part of his sentence
I mean would you rather your star player say stuff like this (confident in the team, thinks they'll be good) or something like Eichel did (disappointed in the situation, not sure about the future)? If Vezina-winners want to stay on my team and keep winning, I see no problem there.
