  • As Dustin Byfuglien contemplates future supportive Jets carry on in earnest

After spending the past few seasons as one of the Western Conference's most explosive threats, the Winnipeg Jets have seemingly taken a step back thanks to a horrid offseason.

The Jets announced on September 13 that the 34-year-old blue-liner had been granted a leave of absence but declined to give a reason for Byfuglien's time away from the team.

"This was kind of mentally dealt with a week ago at the start of camp and now I've still got 46 guys in camp and Dustin missed half the hockey season for us past year so specific to him, we're used to not having him in the lineup", Maurice said Wednesday.

Byfuglien, on a personal leave from the Jets since the start of training camp last week, "is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future", TSN hockey insider Bob McKenzie reported, via Twitter.

Byfuglien, 34, had four goals and 27 assists in 42 games last season.

Obviously, the door is wide open for Byfuglien to return to the club.

Byfuglien has two years remaining on his contract with the Jets, with an average annual value of $7.6 million.

If Byfuglien decides to hang up his skates, that would leave the Jets with yet another big hole on a blue line already trying to replace the departed Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers and Ben Chiarot.

The Jets coach sought a silver lining with Byfuglien, Laine and Connor not in camp. Without Byfuglien, Winnipeg's back end could be in real trouble, enough to slide them from a legitimate contender to a team on the playoff bubble.

"We know that when you have a player ask for some time and privacy then is paramount in all these", Maurice said.
