Winnipeg Free Press: Jets Byfuglien to be charged in boating incident. This can’t be good for business.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets rookies excited for chance in tourney. I can’t imagine any city has been so excited for a game of prospects.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets’ Pavelec eyes playoffs. If you are a fan of the Jets, you have to like what the team’s #1 goalie is saying.
After the jump we take a look at 5 burning Southeast division questions, Jet signing autographs tonight and a look at the Jets defensemen’s possible point totals for next season. In ‘Around the NHL’ news the Bruins remain tight-lipped about Marchand contract, Capitals Troy Brouwer on pace to start season, Lokomotiv pulls out of KHL and Rangers name Callahan as captain.
CTV: Winnipeg Jet scheduled to sign autographs. I suspect that to be one of the 250 people to get an autograph, you are going to have to show up early.
Calgary Herald: Five burning South east division questions. I tend to forget that the Jets will be in this division next season (of course I still think of the Jets in the Smythe), but this list has the Jets missing the playoffs. Accurate?
Metro: Now that was a summer. Just a brief mention about the Jets being the fuel to keep folks excited, but the fact is that almost everyone I talk to agrees that this was the best summer they can recall.
Arctic Ice Hockey: Jets comparables – The blue line. I’m always cautious to use a system to predict how a player will do. However the guys over at Arctic Ice came up with these numbers for the Jets defence.
Around the NHL:
NESN: Brad Marchand, GM Peter Chiarelli remain tight-lipped about contract. The Bruins are going to need this feisty little forward in the lineup.
Washington Post: Capitals’ Troy Brouwer on pace to be ready to start season. Important to know what is happening within the Southeast division.
ESPN: Tragedy-hit Lokomotiv pulls out of KHL for the year. This is probably for the best as trying to make do with a make-shift lineup probably wouldn’t have worked out very well.
CBC: Rangers name Callahan new captain. The Rangers select a native New Yorker to be the team’s 27th captain of all time.
