Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Odds of winning the draft lotteryThe Jets hot streak at the end of the season virtually guaranteed that if they didn’t make the playoffs they would be setting themselves up for a very low opportunity to get a high draft pick in the very deep 2013 draft.  The only good news is despite the chances being poor, the league removed the 4 space max movement when you win, so conceivably the Jets could go from 13th to 1st.  The draft takes place tomorrow.

Winnipeg Sun:  Making the grade for the JetsThe guys broke down the Jets by grades yesterday and so did Ken in this article.  What do you think?  You are welcome to share your grades on this team.
