WINNIPEG - Are the Winnipeg Jets better right now than they were at this time last year?

Although there's still nearly a month to go before main training camp, it's a question that is generating plenty of discussion these days, whether it be around water coolers or in dressing rooms all across Manitoba.

The Jets didn't make any splashy additions and are clearly banking on plenty of internal improvement to take the next step into the post-season.

Having a head coach in Paul Maurice with more than 1,100 games of NHL experience should be a benefit, but how many points is it going to be worth in the standings?

That's nearly impossible to quantify, but it can't hurt.

While realizing the game is played on the ice and not on paper, let's take a closer look at how the Jets are shaping up right now, position by position.
