Winnipeg Jets Afternoon News (Monday, Jan 2nd)
TSN: Jets among NHL’s best at home and worst on road. Easy to explain away the early season road record. The big test will be January. If this team can win 4-7 games on the road it will be in very good position come the February and March push.
Winnipeg Free Press: Little closer to rejoining Jets lineup. Great news for the team as he has been one of the most important pieces to the puzzle for the Jets.
Winnipeg Sun: Fehr needs to play better. You can see that Fehr is still not 100% but is trying hard to work through it. Perhaps his coach is trying to give him some motivation via the media.
Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:
Brandon Sun: Shayne Wiebe released by Caps. (registration required). The Brandon, Manitoba product is done with the Caps.
Next opponent news – Montreal Canadiens:
Montreal Gazette: The team’s best players need to step up. The team isn’t likely to make a change at coach again this season, which means the only way this ship will start sailing again is if the players step things up.
ESPN: Sorry if we upset people. Does anyone outside of Quebec actually care?
