Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Winnipeg Free Press: Kane would be wise to take what’s on table. Appears Kane is still mulling over the reported 6 year deal the Jets have offered. Should he take the money and run or is he doing the right thing by taking his time to make this decision?
Winnipeg Free Press: Payroll bound to rise by summer’s end. Being a basement spending team does not mean you cannot make the playoffs. It does bear noting that a number of teams (Sens, Preds, Yotes, Panthers & Blues) that spent approximately similar amounts to the Jets all made the post season.
Winnipeg Sun: Time changes for Jets. Those who have both Bombers and Jets tickets are not going to be happy that the games overlap.
Wall Street Journal: NHL proposes expanded revenue sharing in CBA talks. Six weeks today before the current CBA expires and yet both sides are not hitting the panic button. Fans however are getting more and more resigned to missing part of the season, despite the sugar coating both sides of the negotiations are putting on the process.
New York Daily News: Gary Bettman shows signs of impatience with NHLPA information gathering. Let the games begin!
Overtime: Proposing a luxury tax for the next CBA. If you missed this yesterday, Richard Pollock of IC.com gave his thoughts on what can be done to move this process along.
NHL.com: How to replace Parise one of Devils’ six questions. From Stanley Cup runner-ups to having to do whatever they can to get back there minus one of their top players. Given the improvement around them in the East, this will be a tall task.
Ottawa Sun: Alfie poised to become one of NHL’s best bargains. That is quite the bargain basement pricing for the Sens.
The Province: Canucks may have an interest in big Bjugstad. Will have to wait until after Doan signs (whenever that will be) to see what Vancouver will do with trading Luongo.
