the Score:  Talking about realignment. Would have to agree with the author’s sentiment below.

Whatever the NHL’s realignment plan turns out to be, it will be a long and messy process getting to the final goal.

TSN:  Who should go after Stamkos or Doughty.  Even though the Jets are still a few million below the cap floor, don’t expect them to be in on these sweepstakes.

ESPN:  Truth to realignment rumors, Hulsizer and Heatley-Havlat fallout.   Have to agree with Burnside.  Way too premature to begin discussion of realignment for next season.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets to play Senators in Hockeyville game.  Glad to see they’ve moved the game to where the AHL affiliate will be playing.

    In my dream world the Jets may offer a deal for Doughty’s rights involving Bogosian as a primary part of that equation, but realistically attempting to trade for either player’s rights would require trading a lot of assets the Jets can’t afford to lose.

    Pre-season games as far as I’m concerned should be used as a means of marketing the team outside of Winnipeg.  St. John’s, Fargo, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay should all be destinations for Jets pre-season games in the future.
