The Winnipeg Jets seem to be stuck in a rut, one that saw them take four steps forward and now three steps back.

Thanks to those recent setbacks, Jets find themselves in the basement of the Central Division with a record of 10-11-3 as they welcome the Minnesota Wild to MTS Centre to close out a three-game homestand on Saturday afternoon.

"It kind of feels like the same movie over and over again from the last couple years," said Jets winger Blake Wheeler. "You get some guys going, a couple guys aren't going. You get a couple different guys going, then a couple of different guys aren't going. I'm not sitting here acting like I'm on my A-game 100 per cent of the time because that's not the case. But when you're not going, it's up to you to find a way to get your game back in check. And for the most part we have a group of players that's able to to do that. You have to be professional and find a way to get the most out of yourself. And when you're not doing that, it's time to look in the mirror and figure out how you do that.

"Because we're a team that relies on every person in this room. We're not a team that can rely on just one or two guys to carry us. It hasn't worked in the past and it's not going to work in the future. We need to get everyone on the same page going forward. Because when we do that, we're a pretty good damn team."

So what can the Jets do to ensure that pretty damn good team shows up with a little more regularity?

That's a question Jets head coach Claude Noel continues to wrestle with.
