Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
All is quiet on the Jets front.
Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Lockout threat casts shadow. The league is having unparalleled success but the threat of a lockout is not good for business.
Montreal Gazette: Bettman is neighbourhood bully in NHL talks. No punches pulled in this piece. Is Bettman a bully in your opinion?
Edmonton Sun: NHL lockout makes absolutely no sense. When you see the contracts getting handed out to guys who get 40-50 points, it makes you wonder what the players who regularly scored 100+ think of all this nonsense.
The Province: 15 Stages of NHL Lockout Preparation: Day 2 – “Pray”. Something tells me that we are going to need more than 15 days.
USA Today: Ownerless Coyotes show signs of staying power. Perhaps just before the playoffs each season the NHL will parade out a new ownership group to get the Yotes revved up before the post season.
Globe and Mail: PQ referendum threat won’t help Quebec City’s NHL dreams. Mixing politics with hockey. Great idea.
Part 1: Zach Bogosian out for a minimum three months after wrist surgery. CBA Negotiations (Owners table a new offer to players, new method of defining hockey related revenue). Off-season winners and losers, Central Division.
Part 2: Off-season winners and losers Northwest Division. Off-season winners and losers Pacific Division. Interview with Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe & Mail. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.
