LAST SEASON: 37-35-10, 84 points. Missed playoffs by finishing 10th in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Claude Noel, 2nd season with Jets, 37-35-10; 3rd overall, 47-43-16 in NHL.
ADDED: C Olli Jokinen, LW Alexei Ponikarovsky, G Al Montoya.
LOST: G Chris Mason, LW Tanner Glass, RW Tim Stapleton, D Mark Flood.
PLAYER TO WATCH: After nearly making the team out of training camp last season, 19-year-old center Mark Scheifele is eager for another shot this year. He's a dependable two-way forward who's enjoyed a solid first half of the season playing for Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League.
OUTLOOK: Will the honeymoon of the NHL's return to Winnipeg be over after last season? The former Atlanta Thrashers are still stuck in what's becoming a tough Southeast Division. And until the NHL realigns its divisions, the Jets are still stuck with a grueling travel schedule that could wear them down in a tightly packed 48-game schedule.
LAST SEASON: 38-26-18, 94 points. Lost to New Jersey 4-3 in first round.
COACH: Kevin Dineen, 2nd season with Panthers, 38-26-18; 2nd overall in NHL.
ADDED: D Filip Kuba, C Peter Mueller, RW George Parros, RW Alex Kovalev.
LOST: D Jason Garrison, LW Wojtek Wolski, C John Madden.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Kovalev. He's still strong and talented, and could be the perfect fit for a second line that sometimes struggled with scoring a year ago. Plus, considering how much Florida struggles with shootouts, someone like Kovalev could pay immediate dividends.
OUTLOOK: Most of the team that won the Southeast Division title last season is back. The Panthers might have one of the best 1-2 goaltending combos in the league with Jose Theodore and Scott Clemmensen. If health isn't an issue, the Panthers could go deeper in the playoffs this time around.

*Jets-Panthers Preview* =======================
By JON PALMIERI STATS Editor
Winnipeg (10-11-1) at Florida (7-11-5), 7:30 p.m. EDT
As the worst team in the league, the Florida Panthers haven't enjoyed much success this season.
A good portion of the little they've had, however, has come at the expense of the Winnipeg Jets.
Eager to erase the memory of their last game, the Panthers won't have long to wait as they host the Jets for the second time in four days on Friday night.
A surprise as Southeast Division champions last season, the Panthers (7-12-5) will have to make quite a run in the second half to repeat that feat.
They have an NHL-worst 19 points and are dealing with a lengthy injury list that includes No. 1 goaltender Jose Theodore, defensemen Dmitry Kulikov, Ed Jovanovski and Mike Weaver and forwards Stephen Weiss, Kris Versteeg and Scottie Upshall.
Florida looked very much like an undermanned team in a 7-1 loss at Washington on Thursday, facing a 4-0 deficit before the game was 8 1/2 minutes old. Jack Skille's third-period goal allowed the Panthers to avoid the shutout, but wasn't nearly enough to prevent their sixth loss in eight games.
The league's worst defense took another beating as Florida allowed seven goals for the second time this season and saw its team goals-against average jump to 3.66.
Jacob Markstrom surrendered goals on both shots he faced and was pulled after 3 minutes, 10 seconds - the fastest yanking of an NHL goalie for something other than an injury in more than a year. Scott Clemmensen didn't provide much relief, yielding two goals on his first six shots.
"I don't know what to say. I couldn't stop the puck in the first two shots or whatever, first 3 minutes," Markstrom said. "No excuse for that. It was terrible. I feel like I let the team down. I'm there to stop pucks and I didn't do that tonight."
Coach Kevin Dineen could choose to come right back with Markstrom, who stopped 30 shots for his first win of the season in Florida's 4-1 victory over Winnipeg on Tuesday.
That gave the Panthers at least one point in 11 of their last 12 meetings (6-1-5) with the Winnipeg-Atlanta franchise, including a 2-0-1 mark this season. Tomas Fleischmann has a team-best six points in the season series, while rookie Jonathan Huberdeau has a goal in all three meetings.
This will be the third stop on a four-game road trip for the Jets (11-11-1), who got a late tiebreaking goal from Bryan Little and 28 saves from Al Montoya in a 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay on Thursday. Eric Tangradi also scored for Winnipeg, which has won four of six overall and six of eight on the road.
"We knew it was going to be a tough road game," Montoya said. "We knew we had to keep the score down, and that's what we did."
With Montoya starting Thursday, Ondrej Pavelec figures to be back in net for the Jets. Pavelec has started all three games against the Panthers, posting a 3.58 goals-against average.
Winnipeg has scored only six goals in its last four games and hasn't been helped by a power play that is 1 for 34 in the last 14 contests. That unit didn't even have an opportunity with the man advantage in Tuesday's loss.
That lack of offense, though, has been offset some by a penalty-killing unit that is perfect in the last 17 short-handed situations despite ranking 29th (75.3 percent) in the league. Only the Panthers (73.4) are worse.
