The modern Jets franchise is one of the lowest seeds only because they’ve only existed for three years, at the time I started this. They drew a very tough draw in the first round and I really didn’t expect them to get out of it.

1st Round:

Swept by 22nd-seeded ’10-’11 Vancouver Canucks, 4-0

Claude Noel was head coach of the ’13-’14 Jets for 47 games before he was fired with a record of 19-23-5. He was replaced by Paul Maurice and the Jets staged a second half turnaround. They went 18-12-5 under Maurice to finish with a record of 37-35-10, which was good for 84 points and last in the Central Division. They ranked 15th in the league in goals for with 227 (2.77/game) and 21st in the league in goals against with 237 (2.89/game). Hockey Reference ranked the Jets’ strength of schedule as the third toughest in the league, and their SRS rating system had the Jets ranked 16th overall in the league. The ’13-’14 Jets’ SRS rating (-0.07) is the second-highest during their time in Winnipeg, second only to this year’s Jets team. The Jets finished eight points away from a playoff spot.

The ’13-’14 Jets were offense-by-committee. Blake Wheeler finished first in points on the team with 69. Bryan Little’s 64 points were second on the team while defenseman Dustin Byfuglien’s 56 were good for third. Wheeler also finished as the team’s leading goal-scorer with 28 on the season. Little, along with Andrew Ladd, were tied for second in goals with 23. Once again, Byfuglien, was third with 20 goals. Little and Wheeler were tied for the team lead in assists with 41 each. Byfuglien was alone in second with 36 and Ladd finished with 31 to be third. Defenseman Mark Stuart finished with the highest plus/minus rating on the team at +11. Youngster Mark Scheifele was second by Stuart with a +9 rating. Ondrej Pavelec was the Jets’ #1 and finished the season with a 3.01 goals against average and a .901 save percentage with one shutout. His quality start percentage was not very good at .421%. However, the Jets did have one of the better backup goaltenders that season in Al Montoya. He appeared in 28 games with 22 starts and finished with a winning record to go along with his 2.30 goals against average and a .920 save percentage with two shutouts. Montoya’s quality start percentage was much better an .591%.

Up next is the #44 seed, the ’74-’75 Kansas City Scouts!
