WINNIPEG -- It was a vote of confidence from both sides Monday as the Winnipeg Jets re-signed centre Bryan Little to a new five-year contract worth $23. Wholesale Adidas NMD Shoes 2018 .5 million. Little says hes convinced the team has the talent it needs to succeed and likes what the off-season addition of forwards Michael Frolik and Devon Setoguchi does to the offence. "At the end of the day thats what we want," Little said of making the Jets into a playoff contender. "If I felt the team was going to struggle for five more years, I wouldnt have signed that deal." The 25-year-old is a member of Winnipegs top line with captain Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler. Little, who avoided arbitration by signing the deal, had seven goals and 25 assists in 48 games last season. In 404 games with the franchise, the 12th overall pick in the 2006 NHL draft has 99 goals and 128 assists. The Jets still need to come to terms with Wheeler, who has also filed for arbitration. "Hopeful Wheeler can get something similar because we really enjoy playing together," Little said on a conference call. Little said he didnt give much thought to signing a short-term deal in order to become an unrestricted free agent and test the market.

Last year we went out of the first round of the play-offs, the wheels fell off towards the end of the league campaign. We conceded too many goals and we got a really tricky away tie against Seattle in the play-offs.We need to position ourselves better in the league before it goes to the play-offs then its a bit of a lottery.

The experience has been good but Ill obviously judge it come the end of the season when Ive done a full season.Hopefully Ill go home with a trophy. It just made sense to me being at Liverpool for that amount of time it was important for me to come out, have a look in and see whats happening at Liverpool.[I get to] sample a different lifestyle and a different life experience. LA Galaxy last won MLS Cup in 2014 Gerrard insists he is in a good place physically heading into his 19th full season as a senior professional, and is not pressed to make a decision on retirement.I dont want to shut any doors and I dont want to make any rash decisions because where I sit now I still feel healthy, Gerrard said.I still feel fit, I still feel like I could play in most levels in the game so where I sit now Im not ready to retire.
