The Winnipeg Jets hockey club saw their worst attendance since moving from Atlanta back in 2011. Both the Tuesday night game and the home opener on Saturday were concerning lows.

If fans aren't just excited to have a team again – and are finally tired of watching the same sub-mediocre barely-changing roster that's been constructed by the same guy as the year before – they have good justification for it. The Jets in front of their slipping crowd lost 5-1 to Pierre-Luc Dubois and his new team, the LA Kings. Dubois scored and put on a show in front of his former crowd.

The Jets are 1-2-0 to start the season and made sure fans will get to see the mid- to late-30s of Mark Scheifele and Connor Hellebuyck.

This is cool. To me, the Islanders are the team with the most "trading cards vibes".
