Winnipeg Jets Practice Report
According to Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg the only players missing from today’s skate were Tobias Enstrom, Josh Morrissey and Chris Thorburn.
Jacob Trouba: On defending (potentially) without Morrissey and Enstrom. Thoughts on the Sestito suspension? More on the impact of Sestito. How big a loss is Enstrom? Comparing the Jets to the Flames. Can they use the Flames success as a blueprint?
Mathieu Perreault: What are they working on with their special teams units? What can they do to shut down the Flames? How does the change on the power play help create more movement? Thoughts on the four-game suspension for Sestito? What does he think about it not really hurting the Penguins? More on what the Flames bring to the game.
Blake Wheeler: Thoughts on facing the Flames? Does he see similarities in the two teams? Can he learn from how they’ve done it? On the challenges presented when you lose Enstrom? What did he think of the four-game suspension handed out to Sestito?
Patrik Laine: Changes to the Jets power play. Thoughts on facing the Flames? Was he trying out a new stick? How did he feel about his game against the Penguins? As a team, how far behind are they of a team like Pittsburgh?
Coach Maurice: Status of Enstrom/Morrissey/Thorburn? Thoughts on how “fair” the four-game suspension is? On how the Flames have turned things around. Does he see a lot of similarities between the two teams? On the Jets needing confidence in defending. How do they get there? What will he do with his goalies for the next little while? Where is Hellebuyck’s game at? Can they learn anything in the short term in their losses to the Sharks and Penguins?
