Our western conference preview continues with a focus on the Winnipeg Jets. This is the Jets' fourth season in Winnipeg after relocating from Atlanta, and they've missed the playoffs all three seasons. They finished with 84 points in 2012 and 2014, and 51 during the shortened 2013 season.

They missed the playoffs by eight points in 2012 and four points in 2013 while skating in the eastern conference. They moved to the west last year and ended up in 11th spot, seven points out of the playoffs.

Nugent-Hopkins-Ryan-1-Oilers-2012

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is an impressive power-play performer and a developing two-way talent, but to listen to some people he's not much at all. If it's possible to consider a former No. 1 overall selection underrated, the Nuge is it.
