Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
ESPN: Uni Watch Power Rankings. The Jets, whose jersey was rated 18th overall in the NHL, fell a further 5 spots overall when all four major sports leagues in North America are combined in this ranking by Paul Lukas. His fellow ESPN writer Craig Custance took issue with his rating adding:
“The Winnipeg Jets (No. 18) were my runner-up vote for too low. That’s a jersey that deserves to be in the top half of the league, at least. Especially considering the upgrade over the franchise’s previous existence, which included some really bad Atlanta Thrashers jerseys. RIP Thrash.”
For those who want a refresher on how the Jets jersey came to be, we spoke with Dominique Fillion (the lead uniform and team identity designer for Reebok and the NHL) back on September 6th, 2011, who gave us his design insight.
Sportsnet: Top 13 thing I learned at Biosteel Camp. Jets fans will be very excited to read #7 about Mark Scheifele. (Hat tip to reader Paul Poirier for the heads up).
Buffalo News: Kane, Stanley quite a duo across Western New York. Lots of folks turned out to see the Conn Smythe trophy winner bring the Stanley Cup for a visit.
