Are the Winnipeg Jets pushing for 1st overall pick in 2014 NHL Entry Draft?
According to Gare Joyce (a feature writer and editor at Rogers Sportsnet) who tweeted the following news today, the Jets could be in play for the top selection this year:
Hard push for #1 overall by Vancouver & Winnipeg. Most yrs I don’t see it happening but think there’s >50% chance it happens.

Interesting news I’m sure for Jets fans. We will have to wait till Friday to see if anything materializes or if Winnipeg stays the course and drafts in the ninth spot. The speculation has columnist David Staples of the Edmonton Journal wondering how this move could impact the Oilers.
Don’t forget that the entire IC crew will be at the Draft in Philadelphia so be sure to stay tuned to the site for all the latest Jets news from the City of Brotherly Love and follow us on twitter @illegalcurve.
