Winnipeg Jets Afternoon Links
Winnipeg Free Press: Get ready to face new rivals on the road. Should be a good test as they match-up with Nasvhille, Dallas, Colorado and St. Louis over the next six days.
Winnipeg Sun: Looking to become road warriors. When I think road warriors I don’t know about you but I think of “Hawk” and “Animal” from the old WWF. Perhaps the Jets can channel some of that inner fighting spirit as they prepare to do battle with some central division opponents.
CBC: In the Room – Michael Frolik. Speaks with CBC’s Mitch Peacock about his longtime friendship with goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
Sportsnet: Hockey Central at Noon (audio). The guys discuss Jets coach Claude Noel struggles. Discussion begins at 30:40 minutes with Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press ends just after the 40 minute mark. (The audio wasn’t working on their site in Google Chrome. Worked in Internet Explorer).
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel presser. Road trip ahead after home stand. Road trip preferable now? Play of Peluso. Understanding his team. Pavelec discussion (are numbers fair?). Can team rise to challenge without his motivation? Injury update (Trouba not coming). Using trip to get to know some of his new opponents. Scheifele as he transitions his game.
Illegal Curve: Jets player audio. Hear from Mark Scheifele, Ondrej Pavelec, Devin Setoguchi and Anthony Peluso.
Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any of the news this AM we have you covered.
