    The only time I've seen a magazine cover predict a champion years out was Sports Illustrated with the Astros, and they also had George Springer on the cover, who won World Series MVP.

    They just need a #1 D, a #2 C, a #4 C, and a #6 D.

    Completely agree on both of these points. :laugh:

    As far as I’m concerned, if a goalie can backup their swagger, they can say whatever the f*** they want lol.

    Fun Fact:

    The Odessa Jackalopes thought Hellebuyck was crazy when he said he would play in the NHL. 3 years later he was playing in the NHL.

    Then, people (Wheeler included) thought Hellebuyck was nuts because he said he wanted the Vezna. 3 Years later he got a Vezina.

    Now Helle is saying his teams going to be a Dynasty.

    Just saying... I wouldn't bet against Hellebuyck.

    So, in three years, we will have established a Dynasty? I’m in.

    For the other 31 teams, I wouldn’t bother wasting time upgrading. Might as well white flag the next few years while the Winnipeg Jets take over the NHL.

    All hail Emperor Hellebuyck!!

    I believe we could win a cup if we got the last few pieces needed and booted our current coaching staff into the sun...

    Have you ever played sports? If your team has never won a championship and you're giving interviews about how the next three are already locked in even your own locker room is going to roast you alive. Especially considering how superstitious hockey players are about jinxes.

    Man.............something happened out there in the Peg today.................the air, what was in the air...?

    Seriously, WTF, are these guys all thinking? Their coach barely believes they beat the Oilers, after saying over and over, that 3 games went to OT, and it was much closer..........then they don't show up the next round, because they are now almost a dynasty?

    Hellebuyck is a special kind of player. When he has a rough game and let’s in a bunch of goals, he tells reporters that he really liked his game and felt his mechanics were fine. He would then proceed to have an incredible following game.

    He’s got swagger and he backs it up. His teammates thought he was nuts but now view him as a leader. I really don’t mind his comments. Frankly, the Jets actually do have the talent, the salary cap room and high end prospects ready to take the next step to put out a very formidable team.

    I think they are getting close to taking some serious runs at this thing. I just hope Chevy nails this important offseason.

    To be fair they are only a few pieces away. Unfortunately those pieces are 3 top 4 D, 2 more top 9 forwards and 25MM in cap space. Super close, like only s few pieces and 2-3 Cups away.

    Jets have some slick forwards and a great goalie. That D is brutal though. Reminds me of what Montreal's had in recent years but even worse.

    I can't remember a team's exit interviews being as cringy as Winnipeg's this year. They're in total disbelief that Montreal wiped the floor with them and then held their nose to it. They sound broken.

    Mythically speaking, I think Mark Scheifele pissed off the hockey gods as it's been exposed he's truly classless.

    Realistically speaking we're not winning the cup. I think we'll be good enough to crack the playoffs every year whether it be Wild Card or a genuine playoff spot, but highly doubt we win the cup. Too much toxicity in the Jets organization, and believe it or not Cheveldayoff is the only good one within the organization, although he and Maurice team up to degrade players in order to give them a cheap contract and make it look like he's offering a lot more to them.

    Hellebuyck will likely be the guy keeping us afloat and I expect him to be good enough to get a Vezina nomination or best-case scenario win it. I mean I don't see the Jets winning the division, but Hellebuyck will get us in.

    But worst-case scenario we turn into Ottawa, which is something I could see happening with the Jets. I sometimes think it's already happened but the reason it's not showing is because of the quality of our current roster.

    I don’t even know if we’ll see a dynasty in the cap era. Chicago was the closest and Tampa has potential to be one.

    A dynasty might be a bit optimistic, might want to win a cup first.
