Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Jets & Affiliate news:
Twitter: Don Cherry tweets about Evander Kane situation. This morning Don sent about 5 tweets saying he supports Kane and that he was simply joking around but hopes tax man wasn’t watching.
Globe and Mail: Aucoin’s four-point outing guides Marlies past IceCaps. The Caps failed to win the second game of the back-to-back in Toronto last night.
Coloradoan: Colorado’s home roll continues with sweep of Bakersfield. Finding ways to win against the weaker teams is important, especially as the Eagles get ready to embark on a 6 game road trip following the Christmas holidays.
News Reporter: Rookie goalie Adam Brown finding a groove for Colorado. With all the missing players up front, Colorado is getting some much needed help in-between the pipes.
Edmonton Journal: Hamrlik stands by his criticism of NHLPA, still hopes for compromise solution. I really respect the fact that Hamrlik hasn’t backed away from his comments.
National Post: Don Cherry confident lockout will be over within weeks. The Coach is confident that we will see NHL hockey again this year (technically next year). What do you think?
CBC: NHL sides talk by phone, no meetings scheduled. Both waiting till the last minute to get this done. Terrific.
Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Finns score four third-period goals, beat U.S. 5-1. The Jets draft pick picked up an assist on the lone U.S. goal in the loss to the Finns on Saturday.
Calgary Herald: Canada beats Sweden in junior warm-up. It wasn’t a pretty win but a nice shootout victory.
Toronto Star: Canada spot-on with Steve Spott as coach. Not the conventional way to get to Team Canada but Steve Spott has worked hard to get to his present position.
TSN: Boone Jenner isn’t sure what else he could have done. Not surprisingly the Canadian players believe the hit was fair and doesn’t merit further disciplinary action.
