Monday, July 11 Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Probably more important than any hockey news today, is news that it is 7-11’s birthday, which mean’s a free slurpee while supplies last.
Vancouver Province: Tanner Glass excited about opportunity with the Jet. Glass self assesses himself as a 4th line left winger & staple on the 2nd line PK. We would agree with him on that. The Jets are certainly stockpiling a lot of forward depth, so you can be sure that if a player doesn’t show up effort-wise, he will have a view from the press box the next game.
Winnipeg Sun: Searching for the real Andrew Ladd. Will the former Hawks now playing for the Jets help rekindle the rivalry we once held with the Canucks? Time and re-entry to the West for the 2012-13 season will give us an indication of that, but for now here’s some info on the Jets captain.
Winnipeg Free Press: Players cup hosted by Jonathan Toews. If you want to know what’s going on this week, here is a schedule of events. While not directly Jets related, they are having a “white-out” on Day 3, where “players and fans are encouraged to wear white in a show of support for the NHL’s return to Winnipeg.”
Around the NHL:
Denver Post: Avs still not at cap floor. Not even mid July and already fans are worried.
News & Observer: Canes’ Murphy will take his shot. Looks like Carolina got a very good player in the 12th spot.
NESN: Dougie Hamilton enjoying up-tempo practices. The Bruins are very happy that they got him when they did.
