Jets news:

Globe and Mail:  Jets’ potent GST line put on holdHave to agree with Paul.  These 3 guys have captured the hearts of the fans at the MTS Centre (and Jets fans everywhere).  While we are not going to rename the line, we are going to have to re-focus the fans energy into a constant “Go Jets Go” chant.

Winnipeg Free Press:  New nickname needed?  Fehr replaces Thorburn on GST checking line.  No need for a new nickname.  Let’s not get crazy.  Have to enjoy the fact that the players are having so much fun with the nickname.

Winnipeg Sun:  Fehr excited for latest opportunity.  Perhaps the big forward from Winkler can add some scoring to the Jets 3rd line.

National Post:  Eastern Conference is wide open.  After last week’s back-to-back losses the Jets fall from 17th to 21st in the power rankings.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel scrum.  Update on Bogosian (remains day to day).  No Buff on the ice today talk (good to go).  Fehr stepping in for Thorburn.  Miettinen looking like Gretzky.  No more 11 and 7.  Fehr handling idle time (makes American Idol joke).  Surprised by road support?  Working hard and wanting it.  Scoreboard watching?  

Around the Southeast:

Hockey’s Future:  Division notes – Capitals hit the road while other contenders stay home.  While every game is important this week will essentially make or break the Jets.

Washington Post:  Caps take day off.  Looks like the Capitals have it turned around just in the nick of time to save their season.

Tampa Bay Tribune:  Wyman a welcome wild card for Bolts.  Quite the versatile foot soldier for coach Guy Boucher to have in his arsenal.
