Paul Stastny and Blake Wheeler criticize their teammates

When we talk about a difficult and disappointing season, the first thing that comes to mind is the Vegas Golden Knights. But another team of the Western federation did not have an expected season. It’s the Winnipeg Jets, who finished 11th in the conference, eight points away from a playoff spot.

At the start of the season, when Paul Maurice himself jumped aboard, he gave way to Dave Lowry, who was unable to propel his troops to the spring tournament. He failed to gather his players and he was eventually fired.

He and his assistants are not coming back next year, says Frank Seravalli.

With a record of 26-22-6, he still maintained a record above .500. But when it comes to team chemistry, Lowry hasn’t been able to take it to another level.

So much so that Paul Stastny and Blake Wheeler harshly criticized their teammates and the atmosphere within the team.

We must be accountable to each of us and we must have more respect for each other

When this element is not present within a team and you don’t care about the teammate next to you and you only have it for what you do individually, it starts to hurt on the ice.

I hope they learn from this, that they start to realize it in the summer and that they will tell themselves that they don’t want to be in the same position again next year because it hurts when you see the playoffs start tomorrow and you ‘Don’t play anymore. – Paul Stastny

The players have not played our system. It’s up to the players to implement them and we didn’t. – Blake Wheeler

Two of the great leaders of this team have spoken. Hopefully the younger players and other players on this team get the message. Hopefully for the Jets, the team’s new head coach will be able to sort this all out.

Could it be Joel Quenneville?

Speaking of leader, Mark Scheifele also spoke about the Jets’ 2021-2022 season.

It was a difficult year, a year that I will try to forget a little bit. But you can’t keep it up and better come back next year. – Mark Scheifele

He also admitted to speaking with his agent and his family about his future with the Jets.

I’d love to stay in Winnipeg, but I need to see where the team goes and I think we’ll see that this summer.

I have to think about my career and what is best for me. I will discuss with my agents and my family what I really want. – Mark Scheifele

Under contract through 2024, the right-hander will earn $6.125 million per season. He will be difficult to trade even if he is a good player. However, Winnipeg could withhold two years’ salary. But if Winnipeg is cleaning up and Schielele doesn’t like what he sees, then he really wants to leave. Multiple teams could be interested in a great man like him.

Would the CH be in the running? Tsé has him play along the same lines as Jake Evans to add…

A lot
