Winnipeg Jets Afternoon Links
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets reach broadcast agreement with TSN. Ed Tait was the first to break the news of a deal between True North and TSN.
Winnipeg Sun: TSN, Sports 1290 get Jets rights. Many Jets fans have expressed hope to hear the return of Keilback as the voice of the Jets.
Brandon Sun (registration required): Jets give Wiebe boarding pass. Sticking with the theme of going local.
Around the NHL:
ESPN: Poaching players with offer sheets futile. I’m still mad at the Hawks for costing the Jets 1.0 $6 million per for the team to retain Tkachuk’s services.
NBC Sports: Doc Emrick joins NBC/Versus as full-time play-by-play man. Good move by NBC.
Sporting News: Tom Poti, Capitals’ salary-cap buffer, intends to be ready for training camp. The capologists in the U.S. capital had best be getting paid big bucks for all the work they are likely doing for GM George McPhee.
