Connor Mcdavid has the Jets numbers this season

With a 5-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks, the Winnipeg Jets confirmed their third place in the Canadian division for the playoffs, which begin next Saturday. The bad news for the Paul Maurice-led team is that the team will face Bettman's best player in 2021, Connor McDavid.

The Oilers captain had fun against the Jets' defense this season, as evidenced by his team's 7-2 record. In nine games, Connor McDavid has seven goals and 15 assists for a total of 22 points, higher than his season average of 102 points in 54 games.


Some numbers hurt even more. The Edmonton Oilers' number 97 has as many points as the Jets scored in the duels between the two teams. Bettman's best player amassed 22 points in nine games while all of the Winnipeg Jets' players scored 22 goals in those nine games. The comparison is chilling.


With the loss of Danish striker Nikolaj Ehlers, the Manitoba team's offensive strike force is far less dangerous. Since April 24, the match in which the Dane was injured, his teammates have experienced all kinds of difficulties, as evidenced by the record of 2-7 in the last nine games.

He is rumored to be not yet ready to return to the game for the start of the playoffs. At least that's what several journalists have launched in the last few hours.


Twice, they crossed swords with the Oilers during that sequence. On April 26 and 28, Paul Maurice's men lost 6-1 before folding again two days later by the score of 3-1. The situation has not improved.
