Jets GM reveals massive mistake he committed this off-season

Published October 24, 2023 at 4:38 PM

The Winnipeg Jets summer was a busy one, as the team moved Pierre-Luc Dubois for a haul while locking down two veterans long-term, but now, their GM's one big mistake hs been revealed.

Moves not made


Despite those moves, the blue line didn't change much from last season, and as a result, the Jets sit bottom-five in the league in terms of goals allowed, and it doesn't look to be improving anytime soon.

While veterans like Neal Pionk, Brendon Dillon and Nate Schmidt look good on paper, they just haven't delivered this season, and as a result, the team has struggled, as they should have moved one out this summer.

A rising star

As a result, 26-year old Kyle Capobianco, the two-way star who has been off to a red-hot start in the AHL this season is struggling to find a spot, and after GM Kevin Cheveldayoff failed to make a move this summer, the pressure continues to mount on them to make a move.

Ultimately, it's unclear what the Jets could have got for any of those players on the trade market, but given what they saw defensively a season ago from those veterans, a move needed to be made, and now the team look like they will have to rush a move here to get Capobianco into the lineup, as he has six points through four games this year.
