Thursday, July 7 Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
CBC: American Hockey League honours Chipman. I’m not sure people in Winnipeg realize how lucky we are to have an owner that is as passionate about the sport as Mark Chipman. Bodes very well for the future of NHL hockey in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg Free Press: Ex-Atlanta coach gives True North a thrashing. As if we need more reasons to want to beat the Florida Panthers next season.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets blue-liner has brush with royalty. Loyalty rhymes with royalty and that’s what Flood displayed in signing with the Jets.
Winnipeg Sun: Chevy not done tinkering with roster. Jets still have some pieces to add to this puzzle.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets finding wings. I’m ok with True North not spending money on free agents like some of the other GM’s. While I also remember in the early 90’s saying in 3-5 years this team is going to be a contender, the fact is that these guys are slow building towards the future.
Around the NHL:
St. Louis Dispatch: Blues sign two veterans to same contract. These two former Devils are sure to add some veteran leadership to an otherwise young team.
Globe and Mail: Could Burke do more? Doesn’t seem like free agents are falling all over themselves to go to Toronto to play.
NHL.com: 2011 Free Agent Signings. In case you were curious who has signed where.
