Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets to raffle off first team licence plate.  A very cool idea to raise more money for charity.  15,004 tickets available for purchase to get a chance to be drawn and win the first Jets licence plate.  Something tells me all 15,004 will sell and raise an additional $300,080.00 for charity.
Jets reveal Licence Plate 001

CBC:  Winnipeg Jets licence plates raise $800K for charity.  Not a bad cheque for the foundation which was raised through the generosity of Manitobans.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Byfuglien moves to forward as Jets chase playoff spot.  Desperate times call for desperate measures and while this reeks of desperation, with just a few goals by the forward corps over the last few days, coach Noel felt the need to make a radical move.

Winnipeg Sun:  Looking to snap funk against Canadiens.  The Jets had the day off yesterday while Montreal played a heavy game against the Flyers.  Can the Jets take advantage of this?  We shall see.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel pre-game from Bell Centre.  Talking about Mike Santorelli.  Buff as a forward.  Was the team distracted by trade deadline?  Why are guys pressing?  Expectations of the Habs.  Evaluation of how team has handled last few weeks.  Play of Aaron Gagnon.  Signing of Jacob Trouba.

Winnipeg Sun:  Adam Lowry joining IceCaps.  He had a beast of a final year in junior playing for the Swift Current Broncos and now will take his skills to the East coast as he signed an ATO to play with the Jets farm club.

    Just finished listening to the mid-week. Once again good job fellas. One thing I really liked was when you guys mentioned what SJ did by trading Murray for 2 2nd rounders and then acquiring Hannan for a 7th. I agree with what you guys said about doing this with Hainsey and picking up a veteran ufa dman in the short term. Montador was on waivers from Chicago, O’Byrne and Drewiske came cheap and what about Kulda? Is he not going to see the ice?
    On the other hand I do like the letting the team that is play for the playoffs. shows that management has faith in the team
