Winnipeg is my hometown, so the Jets’ playoff run this spring is creating lots of excitement in my household. With all the talk and emotion, not to mention a looming deadline for this column, I couldn’t help but look for investing lessons from their success. I didn’t have to look far.

The way the team is managed relates well to something I have advised before: investors need to have discipline, patience and courage.


The Jets were put together the right way. General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff used the draft well, emphasized youth and made sure he had character guys at the team’s core. Most importantly, he had a plan.
