Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
TSN: Slater agrees to terms on three-year 4.8 million dollar deal. Now the Jets just need to re-sign Tanner Glass and Ezra and I will be able to enjoy the GST line all of next season. We will have more on this signing in tomorrow’s papers.
Winnipeg Free Press: Case for defence likely to rest. The strength of the Jets system is the defence yet when they step to the podium on June 22nd, the likely best player available will be a defenceman. What should the Jets do? Let us know what you think by voting in our IC Poll.
Winnipeg Free Press: Can you feel the draft? It might be called the offseason but the team brass are certainly not resting as the focus turns toward the future. Will the Jets make a pick for the long-term success of the franchise, do they select the best player available or do they try and make another splash? Stay tuned to @illegalcurve on twitter for all the latest from the draft as we will have our prospect expert, @ickylek on the ground in Pittsburgh.
NHL.com: 2011-2012 NHL season recap video. Was quite the season to remember for fans of NHL hockey in Manitoba. Nice to see the NHL start the video with the words “the NHL is back in Winnipeg”. There were a lot of great moments from this past season. What was your favourite?
Post Stanley Cup news:
Star-Ledger: Devils take in more than $30M during Stanley Cup run.
General NHL news:
New York Post: NHL parity became a parody. Would you prefer a return to the dynasty era or is it better to see different teams win the Cup each year?
Detroit Free Press: Jason Garrison could help the Red Wings’ defence. For the first time in a long time, the Wings are going to need to re-fill the defensive cupboards.
Orange County Register: Ok, Duck fans, get used to it. At least for both the Kings and Ducks fans, they are not Sharks fans, who remain the only California based team without a Cup to their credit.
