Globe and Mail:  Coach Noel talks trade deadlineNothing yet to talk about but fans will be on the edge of their computers for all of February.

Winnipeg Free Press:  ‘We just have to find a way to win’ says coach Noel.  While game number 53 in the schedule won’t end the season if the Jets don’t pull off the victory, it would be nice if the Jets can show some toughness and pull off their first victory in the 2nd game of a back-to-back.

TSN:  Mason to start against Panthers.  Brian gives you both the Jets and Panthers projected lines for tonight.
