The Winnipeg Jets are currently on a bit of a hot streak, going 6-2-2 in their last 10 games. The team can always be better, though and one insider suggests an addition to make Winnipeg a contender.

Nick Kypreos Makes a Suggestion to get the Jets to Contender Status

On a recent edition of Sportnet's Kyper and Bourne show, Nick Kypreos said the blueline needs to get bigger.
"When I look at the defense...I see talent in Neal Pionk, [Josh] Morrissey, [Dylan] DeMelo. I just don't see big. This is still, I still see big Buff somewhere in that uniform. And, is there thought about finding ways to make this blue line bigger?"

There is, of course, the six-foot-seven Logan Stanley. However, as Kypreos points out, he is still searching for a regular spot in the lineup.
"Dylan's there but, you know, Logan Stanley‘s at six-seven and he can't find a regular situation there. Is there any talk that this blue line still is not big enough to compete in the West?"

Insider Suggest Addition to Get Jets into Contention for the Cup

Meanwhile, Sean Reynolds, who was a guest on the show, agreed a big top 4 defenceman would make the team better, but went even further.
"I think there should be talk about that. I think the vast majority of people will tell you that this team is probably a second-line center and a top-four big, rugged defenseman who can also move the puck away from being a true contender in the west. And I would, I would be in that group of people who think that."
