Chevy says

Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff joined the Hustler and Lawless show on TSN 1290 Monday afternoon. Here are some highlights.

On the team's start: "Lots of different emotions. Some on the high side and some on the low side. If you sit back and analyze each game, which we tend to do and redo and redo again, there were some opportunities for a point here or there that hopefully we can gain later on. Some bright spots like the play of Jacob Trouba and some not so bright spots like the injury to Jacob Trouba."

 

Mark Scheifele's development: "Mark's play has been very typical of a young player. There have been flashes where you think, 'man, this is going to be great,' and you think it's going to continue on. But as we've talked about many times, there are going to be ups and downs. That's part of the learning process. When you do see the glimpses of the ups, you know what is there. But this isn't an easy league to earn opportunities to develop because it's a win-at-all-times atmosphere... Mark has had some really good games and some games where he hasn't been on the high side... At this time it's (sending Scheifele down) not something I've contemplated."

 

On his team's inconsistency: "There are probably multiple theories. I attribute some of it to guys pressing too hard. You could attribute it to many different things... There are wild inconsistencies that go on with the best players in the world. It's about smoothing them out and understanding why you're spotty."

 

The power play: Special teams are a concern. It's something that last year was a nemesis of ours and something we've had lots of internal discussions on both from a coaching perspective and a player perspective... Scoring in this league is something that is difficult and we'd like to see the power play become a positive as opposed to where it's at right now."

 

The team's battle level: "It's everybody's responsibility. The NHL is a professional league and the best in the world. The privilege is something you can't take lightly. There is a price to be paid to win. The players have to pay it, the coaches have to pay it and management has to pay it."
