Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Winnipeg Sun: Baseball night in Winnipeg coming August 8th. Looks like Jets Assistant GM Craig Heisinger will be throwing out the first pitch and a number of other hockey related activities are planned for Shaw Park.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets announce Simmons as assistant general manager. He has been with the franchise since the start in Atlanta.
MLive.com: No progress in latest round of negotiations. Hopefully you don’t plan on spending your August long weekend waiting for a negotiation eureka moment, because it isn’t going to happen.
National Post: Canucks’ Ryan Kesler won’t be ready before December, agent says. The good news is Vancouver won’t be here until February so you will be able to see #17 lace em up. I guess that technically the above ‘good news’ could be viewed as ‘bad news’.
CBC: Tuukka Rask ready to be Bruins’ top goalie. All well and good but what are his views on Chik-Fil-A?
The Hockey News: Why the Northwest continues to be the NHL’s worst division. Perhaps sending the Jets there in 2013-14 wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
Sportsnet: ‘Trying like hell’ to move Islanders to Brooklyn. Could this be a move towards smaller, more intimate NHL arenas?
