The Colorado Avalanche had a season to remember in 2013-14. After finishing with the league’s second worst record in the lockout shortened season, they played to a 52 win season which won the Central Division and placed them third overall in the NHL. Moving up 26 spots is impressive, but expectations heading into 2014-15 are at an all-time high.

Our western conference preview continues with a focus on the Winnipeg Jets. This is the Jets' fourth season in Winnipeg after relocating from Atlanta, and they've missed the playoffs all three seasons. They finished with 84 points in 2012 and 2014, and 51 during the shortened 2013 season.
