CBC:  Judging the Jets – 100 games after their return to Winnipeg.  Hardly seems like we have already experienced 100 Jets games since the return of NHL hockey to the Manitoba capital.  What would you like to see, re-building on the fly or blowing up the core?

Winnipeg Free Press:  Bad luck plagues MiettinenHe last just 17 seconds before he had to leave the game and following the Jets win, was labeled as ‘day to day’ by head coach Claude Noel.  When further pressed about the injury coach Noel said it occurred in “an uncomfortable area”.  Hopefully Miettinen is okEd also talks about the review process, Peluso’s play and becoming road warriors.

Winnipeg Free Press:  No longer dropping any road applesWhile the Jets have improved a dismal road record from last season they still have a lot of room for improvement.  They seem incapable of pressing following a goal and often give up a quality chance soon thereafter.  It has been due to the stellar play of Ondrej Pavelec that they have been able to maintain these leads.

Winnipeg Sun:  Miettinen & Byfuglien the latest in sick bay.  To lose Enstrom was bad but it was offset by the return of Zach Bogosian.  The Jets cannot afford to lose Dustin Byfuglien for any length of time.  Good news according to Ed Tait, is that Buff was back on the ice for the optional skate.

Winnipeg Sun:  When will Winnipeg Jets start winning at homeNow that the Jets are winning on the road and struggling at home the soul searching will begin.  Kirk also looks at Peluso’s tilt, Miettinen’s injury, quick starts to game, Hainsey the workhorse, less missed shots, Jokinen’s scare and more.

    Curious no one has noticed Sheifele been absent from the Barrie lineup since his 5 minute major 3 games ago. No mention on the Barrie site, on the OHL site or in local media. 5 pages into a Google search, Instagram notes that he’s been suspended by the OHL. Only mention of this anywhere.

    Best desciption thus far from CTV-Barrie’s facebook page & a comment from person below:

    Christine Bujold Howard:
    “But then pulled a tantrum on the ref and got another misconduct penalty. Hit sudbury player at the boards when the guy was falling and it appeared Mark boarded him from behind. Shaky call. But Mark needs to keep his emotions in check at this stage of his career.”

    I noticed in yesterday’s papers that he had missed the game (which the Colts won and ended their losing streak) but as you mention James, didn’t see anything that indicated what had happened. I only caught it because I checked the game summary and Scheifele wasn’t listed.
