Blake Wheeler says you have to give Montreal all the credit. "They're playing a really good game." #NHLJets
Wheeler bemoans his team's inability to score the first goal.
Wheeler says it's a "damn shame" not to have Mark Scheifele in the lineup.
Wheeler says not having Scheifele changes the game, from making Kyle Connor and himself better, to allowing Adam Lowry's line to dominate.
Wheeler acknowledges how difficult it has been for fans, with Manitoba being in Code Red, and wanting to keep going for the city.

Says it's disappointing they got swept. They were giving people something to do when there was nothing for people to do.

Pierre-Luc Dubois says he wasn't hurt. Bruises and scratches like anyone else. Nothing major that affected his game.
Dubois says he didn't play as well as he should have, as well as he knows he can. Calls it a disappointing year filled with ups and downs.

"The only person here to blame is me."
Dubois says he will look back at this year in the future knowing there wasn't much he didn't go through, from quarantine to injury to no practice to finding the perfect fit on the team. Says he had a hard time finding what he could do.

Andrew Copp says they need to find a way to be harder to play against and be more consistent each night. Says they have some of the pieces to do that.
Copp says nothing is off the table in terms of contract negotiations, including a long-term extension.

One of things he wants to know is the plan going forward.
Copp feels he's taken steps since he went to arbitration a couple of years ago. Also understands Winnipeg's perspective back then with contracts. Says he wouldn't change a thing.

Doesn't think two years ago will impact contract situation this year.
