With their teams falling out of the playoff race and the NHL trade deadline just around the corner the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators have sent the message to their fans that changes are probably coming to their roster. The mindset is simple: The team’s aren’t good enough to win as currently constructed and it is probably time to hit the reset button and start over.  It might mean a step backwards in the short-term for what will — hopefully — be a stronger, more consistent and competitive organization in the not-too-distant future. There’s another team in the NHL that should look into hitting a similar reset button.

Winnipeg Jets fans wondering how long it would take No. 1 center Mark Scheifele to regain his form after missing six weeks with a shoulder injury were provided their answer on Tuesday night. After notching an assist in a 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon in his second game back, Scheifele almost single-handedly kept the Jets from registering their first three-game losing streak of the season, scoring a goal and adding two assists -- including on the overtime winner by defenseman Tyler Myers -- in a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals. Sitting in second place in the Central Division with 75 points, the Jets are hoping to build on the three-point cushion (not to mention the two games in hand) that they enjoy on the St. Louis Blues.

The absence of NHL players at this year’s Olympics brings back memories of the US underdog team at the 1980 Games. When the 1980 US men’s hockey team upset the Soviet Union and went on to win gold, they did it with a roster full of little known players. Thirty-eight years later, Team USA will try to win its first gold since the “Miracle On Ice” featuring a similar roster of unknowns and no names.

Losses in seven of their last eight pushed the Rangers to last place in the Metropolitan Division, shifting the focus from what’s happening on the ice to who might get traded and who should be fired.
