Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Chevy locks up WheelsI had a feeling on Friday AM that this news would break at 5 pm and while I was off by a few hours, Jets fans everywhere were happy to see another long term committment to this team and city.  As stated above, the entire Blake Wheeler conference call will be carried live during the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 at 11 am (the show starts at 10 am).  If you miss it, fear not, as we will have the entire presser posted on Illegal Curve.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets lock up Wheeler It is clear that the Minnesotan is happy playing in this city and especially enjoys the support from the fan base.  He will have six more years with which to further prove the value of this contract.

Yahoo Canada:  Top 30 starting goalies in the NHL.  Good news Jets fans is that Ondrej Pavelec cracked the list and is predicted to be higher after next season.  Bad news, he was ranked 26th on the list.

    “Good news Jets fans is that Ondrej Pavelec cracked the list”………of course he did, it was either him or Montoya!…..This post contains a list ranking each teams starting goaltender. Pav’s is ranked 26 of 30. Not good news at all!

    Who cares what list says what. Honestly! It’ll be a clean slate next season and the Jets are putting the best squad on the ice that theyve had since moving to the Peg.
    remember last season when SI had the Oilers #1 on the pre-season power rankings? someone probably got fired for that one

    Was attempting to use sarcasm. Well aware it was a list that comprised all 30 ‘starting’ goalies.

    Well we both know that Pav’s deserves to be higher anyways. Hopefully the Jets defense has matured to the point where they no longer allow such high quality chances due to d-zone blunders & once and for Pavs can be held accountable for his unimpressive stats. The last 3rd of the season had the Jets play much more responsible hockey. I’d be interested in seeing what Pavs stats were solely focusing on the games immediately following Redmond’s injury. Granted its a small sample size, but the team seemed to really gel at this point & I spent far less time screaming Hainey & Clitsome’s names out for leaving Pavs out to dry.
