Fans stand by Winnipeg Jets despite missing playoffs - again
Many willing to give team more time to develop
Winnipeg fans are standing by the Jets in spite of the team's failure to make the playoffs.
Fan Darren Needham was at the game Thursday night. He said he hasn't given up on the team just yet.
Even though it's the third year in a row the Jets have missed the playoffs, Chris Cavell said they still deserve more time.
"Winnipeg is always impatient when it comes to sports," he said. "What are you going to do? Just put your big boy pants on and sit and wait till we get over this hump."
"We have a great new coach and I think he is doing really well, and I think he is working the players really hard," she said.
The Jets have four more games this season. They hit the road on Saturday to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs, another Canadian team unlikely to make the playoffs.
