BOSTON - It’s a brand new season and the slate is supposed to be wiped clean.
But for the many returnees on the Winnipeg Jets roster — and even the newcomers brought on board — this storyline is already a familiar one.

Last year’s numbers, themselves, were tough enough to swallow.
A 14-22-5 record was a sore spot for a team that missed the playoffs by eight points in the Eastern Conference standings.
