Thursday, June 30 Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

The Telegram:  How would IceCap go down with fansThought for a minute we were playing the name game in Winnipeg again.  IceCaps appears to be the front runner for our new AHL franchises name.  Of course there is room for obvious confusion.  Thoughts?

Winnipeg Free Press:  The RICH will get RichardsHe says he wants a couple more cracks at a Stanley Cup but also wants the big pay day.  Those two things aren’t always synonymous.  (for example see Teemu Selanne & Paul Kariya with the Avalanche).  Most experts agree that Richards will not be Winnipeg bound next season.

Toronto Sun:  Huddy in Jets mixI started having mid 80′ Oilers flashbacks.  All indications are that Huddy is a pretty good assistant coach.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets dipping into free agencyDon’t expect anything crazy from the Jets brain trust on Friday.

NHL News:

Edmonton Journal:  Marchant packs it in after 17 seasonsHis goal in OT in Game 7 against Dallas in the 97′ playoffs was one of the most memorable of the decade.

Windsor Star:  Red Wings won’t stray from salary structureCould be a number of veterans on the way out in Detroit next season.

Montreal Gazette:  Habs clear cap space for looming free agencyDoesn’t sound like there are too many options for the Habs.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:  Jagr decision pending, despite reportsAll this speculation is well and good but since he can’t sign till Friday, seems moot.
