Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Reminder that if any Stanley Cup Playoff games go to overtime, we will be having our #ICOTpool contest. Similar to the #ICGWG contest in that you pick one player (total) from either team and @ tweet us (@illegalcurve) with your selection as well as the hashtag #ICOTpool. Winner gets IC Gear.
Note II: After a week off, the Illegal Curve Hockey Show returns to its usual noon to 3 pm cst on TSN Radio 1290 as Drew, Richard and Ezra break down all the latest Stanley Cup news. Guest: Mike Heika (Dallas Morning News)
TSN: Rona Roundtable podcast. Rick Ralph had on former player agent and Maple Leafs assistant GM Bill Watters to talk about the Alex Burmistrov contract situation. Watters was on to discuss his dealings with Burmistrov’s agent Mark Gandler. Also in the first hour of the show you can also hear Trevor Nott of Nott Auto Corp discussing Burmistrov shipping his car back to Russia, for whatever that is worth. Update: Burmistrov said, 4 days ago (via his instagram), that he hopes his dad will be happy with the car. It is a shame that we won’t be able to make any Yakov Smirnoff jokes. Thanks to reader Garret for the heads up.
