Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Winnipeg Free Press: Disgruntled Burmistrov stomps off to Kazan. Despite protests it was quite clear that this situation wasn’t going to be resolved cleanly and we saw this occur as the team and player decided to take a time out for a couple of seasons.
Winnipeg Sun: The Burmistrov bungle. There is enough blame to go around for the way this situation played itself out. Unfortunately for fans the Jets no longer have a useful centre, a position they don’t exactly have an abundance of strength at and will be forced to make a move to acquire some more depth.
Winnipeg Sun: Burmistrov bolts, Setoguchi speaks. Ken adds his thoughts on the latest news stories to come out of Winnipeg yesterday.
Winnipeg Free Press: ‘Really exciting’ says Setoguchi on playing for Winnipeg Jets. He said all the right things and it will be interesting to see how he fits into the mix next season.
Illegal Curve: Setoguchi conference call. If you missed it, we have all the audio from Devin Setoguchi’s conference call with the media yesterday. If you cannot listen at work we also have some of his statements that were tweeted during the call.
Globe and Mail: Who belongs in Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2013? Pat Burns seems like he should be automatic but the rest of the list is a bit more up to debate. Who would you like to see gain entry?
Globe and Mail: Prospective Coyotes owners execute league agreement for arena. Looks like there will be no more drama in the desert.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Blues are more flexible with new players. Coach Hitchcock is a wizard and will likely make magic happen again next season in St. Louis, something Jets fans are going to have to be aware of as the teams join divisions.
Denver Post: Milan Hejduk could play with another NHL team besides Colorado. Does the 37 year old Czech still have what it takes to score in the NHL?
New York Daily News: Ryan McDonagh re-signs with NY Rangers, inks six-year, $28.2 million deal. A solid signing by the Blueshirts.
