Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Winnipeg Sun: Prospect signs with KHL. A shame in the sense that Kulda added a good amount of defensive depth for the Jets. Remember they used 13 different defencemen last season, so depth on the blue line is never a bad thing.
Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:
The Telegram: Resetting the defence. Lots of different looks for this position next season. One thing that is certain, is with the departure of Kulda and expectations that Postma will be with the big club, there is plenty of opportunity for someone to become the face of this defensive core.
Montreal Gazette: Don’t expect NHL hockey this fall. In the cup half empty category…
CBS Sports: Las Vegas could soon have an NHL-ready arena. Could make my annual pilgrimage to Vegas a lot more interesting.
ESPN: No surprises in NHL’s first offer. It was the opening salvo in contract negotiations. Nobody should be surprised that the NHLPA isn’t ready to agree to the demands being made by the NHL.
CSN Washingtion: Green declines Caps’ $5 million offer. Will we see a rebound season from the former first team all-star?
