Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Winnipeg Free Press: Charge against Byfuglien of operating a boat while impaired dropped?. Looks like he will be picking up some garbage as penance for his indiscretion.
Jets official site: TNSE extends affiliation with St. John’s through 2014-15. No big shocker here.
Jets official site: Agree to terms with Maxime Macenauer. A minor league signing.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets free agent likely to sign with Russian team. Hopefully he gets more minutes playing a role with a KHL squad than he did with the Jets.
Winnipeg Sun: Flood signs with Lokomotiv Yaroslal in KHL. A really nice guy who obviously saw the writing on the wall. Wish him the best in the KHL.
CSN Washington: NHL, players have a lot of work to do. We are roughly 7 weeks away from the September 15th deadline and despite the NHLPA offering to play without a contract (similar to what the MLB players did in 1994) it is resolution or bust for the league.
Dearborne Press & Guide: Wings won’t overpay for free agents. The mantra of GM Ken Holland has been pretty successful so far. We shall see how this roster does without Lidstrom.
Miami Herald: For love of the game. Another interesting story of one of the many players who are trying to get their chance to make it to the NHL.
