Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show, live from 9-11 AM today as the guys return from their one week hiatus. Guests include Frank Provenzano (Assistant General Manager of the Dallas Stars), Tom Lynn (former Assistant General Manager of the Minnesota Wild and currently of Veritas Hockey) and Corey Pronman (prospects writer for Hockey Prospectus and ESPN).
Winnipeg Free Press: Half for you, half for me. (Subscription required). Is an even split the way to go?
Winnipeg Sun: Bettman trying for NHL lockout hat trick. After just one season back in the NHL, fans in Manitoba are being forced to nervously watch as time ticks away and we get closer to the September 15th deadline. Let us know who you hold responsible in the current CBA talks in our IC Poll.
Comcast Philadelphia: NHLPA has Plan B for potential lockout. Not that surprising that players would have a contingency in place.
ESPN: Owners, Bettman asking for too much. Seems somewhat disingenuous to be trumpeting the success of the league and then crying poor when circumstances dictate.
NHL.com: NHL, NHLPA meet for fourth consecutive day. The Jets Ron Hainsey made an appearance in New York.
New York Daily News: NHL and the NHL Players Association optimistic about new deal. Somewhat ironic that the ad below the article is to ‘Buy Hockey Tickets’.
Montreal Gazette: Would hockey fans forgive and forget another lockout? If it doesn’t cost them an entire season, then the answer is yes.
CSN Chicago: Social media playing a role in CBA negotiations. Social media is an avenue for fans to let the players and league hear their voices and let both sides know how you feel about the current state of affairs.
Toronto Star: Proceed with caution, Markham. If you build it, will they (NHL) come?
Buffalo News: Jeanneret considers Hall honor top-shelf. He holds the distinction of being the longest serving voice of any team in the NHL. He bleeds Buffalo Sabres and whenever he speaks he has such a reverence for the game and that organization. A real class act.
