Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  No tank in Jets.  What player in their right mind would admit to tanking?  Truth is that guys are playing for next year and most draft picks (Laine being a rare exception) don’t go from draft floor to an NHL dressing room.  Guys like Wheeler and Little cannot be overly concerned with a player who may or may not impact a team in two, three or four years.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Myers hoping to get in a game before season ends for Jets.  (Paywall).  We discussed his return on this morning’s IC Hockey Show and I didn’t think he would play again this season but it appears he could possibly get into one or two games to close out the season.
