Winnipeg Free Press:  Chevy’s priorities clear in Glass caseThe feeling I had listening to Glass speak to the media last season was that his primary interest was in signing a multi year dealSomething that would give him security.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Chevy previews qualities he seeksPretty much what all 29 other NHL teams will be seeking on draft day.  The challenge is being able to sift through the talent to find someone that matches the requirements you need.  Will the Jets scouting staff be up to the test?

Winnipeg Free Press:  Who’ll be minding the netAn area that was largely considered solid for the Jets is facing an uncertain future with the rumours swirling that Pavelec had been offered a KHL contract.  Couple that with Chris Mason being a UFA and IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale still needing some seasoning in the AHL, and the Jets might not be as secure in net as previously thought.
