The Colorado Avalanche took on the Winnipeg Jets in the first round. Things started in favor of Winnipeg as they won game one.

For the second year in a row, they lost four straight games in the playoffs after taking a 1-0 series lead in the first round.

Last year, the Vegas Golden Knights did it to them and then won the Stanley Cup. We'll see what happens to the Avalanche from here.

It was a very good season for the Jets but they weren't good enough to win in the playoffs. Now, we have to look back on why they didn't win the Stanley Cup this year:

The Colorado Avalanche are more experienced than the Winnipeg Jets

The Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup in 2022. They aren't far removed from winning the whole thing.

Plenty of the players from that championship team are still there. That includes their three best players in Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, and Cale Makar.

The fact that the Jets haven't even been past round number one in a while showed up in this series. The Jets just didn't look like a team capable of winning the entire thing.

If the Jets want to make some impactful changes this off-season, they should consider a few players who have won the Stanley Cup.

They did add Tyler Toffoli who has won it with the Los Angeles Kings but he wasn't good enough on his own to carry this team in terms of experience.

When you're facing a team like the mighty Colorado Avalanche, it is very hard to get by them without the deep run experience.
