Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets add two IceCaps as prepare for Flyers.  Lots of information out there right now as to who will and will not be in the linup against the Flyers.  Should know more following practice today.

Jets official site:  Nik Antropov talks hometown.  A Q & A from the Jets centre on growing up in Oskemen, Kazakhstan.

TSN:  Jets arrive in Philadelphia.  The Jets won’t be expecting any brotherly love in Philly.

TSN:  How many Canadian teams will make the playoffs?  With just two above the line currently, how many more can vault themselves into a playoff position by end of the season?  Will we be seeing a white out in April at the MTS Centre?  Don’t forget to vote in the IC.com poll.

Calgary Herald:  Flames acquire winger Akim Aliu from Jets.  To see what the Jets gave up here is a Prospect Pulse that Kyle did on Aliu back on August 2nd, 2011.

Next opponent news – Philadelphia Flyers:

Philadelphia Inquirer:  NHL All-Star game a pond-hockey goalfest.  Nice work by Timmonen to put in a word with Nashville’s Ryan Suter who is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, and who Timmonen thinks would look good in Flyers orange.

    What do you guys think of the Jets trying to acquire Jeff Carter? He has a full NTC for the next few seasons so he would have to accept the trade, but hypothetically what if he said yes? What is his market value? Columbus gave up a first and 3rd rounder and a RFA prospect (Voracek) for him last year. Would the Jets be willing to pay that price for a star with a reasonable contract (5.2) through 2021-22 to centre their top line? I know Chevvy wants character guys and, dry island aside, he is that type of player. He was the first sub on team Canada 2010.
    Kane, Postma and a 3rd for Carter? Too much?

    I think the issue with Carter is the cost (young talented players) and the fact that by the time he has exited his prime it seems to coincide with when the Jets intend on competing.  With that being the case, the Jets likely will not want another six or seven years left on that deal.
