Offseason

The Jets began the off-season by sending Moe Mantha to the Pittsburgh Penguins to complete a trade on March 5, 1984, in which Winnipeg acquired Randy Carlyle for the Jets first round draft pick in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft and future considerations. Mantha, who had been with the team since the 1980-81 season, was coming off a 16-goal and 54 point season with the Jets. The club announced that interim head coach Barry Long would be retained, after he led the Jets to a 25-25-9 record after replacing Tom Watt.

On June 9, 1984, the Jets participated in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, but did not draft until the second round, 30th overall, when they selected Peter Douris from the University of New Hampshire. Douris scored 19 goals and 34 points in 37 games with New Hampshire during the 1983-84 season. On June 13, 1984, Winnipeg traded team captain Lucien DeBlois to the Montreal Canadiens for Perry Turnbull. Turnbull split the 1983-84 season between the St. Louis Blues and Montreal Canadiens, scoring 20 goals and 35 points in 72 games. DeBlois was the Jets captain since midway through the 1982-83 season, and in 1983-84, DeBlois had 39 goals and 79 points in 80 games. The Jets named Dale Hawerchuk as DeBlois' replacement as team captain.
