Winnipeg Free Press: Clock ticking as players fight to make Jets. Expect this team to look vastly different in the next day or so.
CBC: Elliote Friedman’s 30 Thoughts. Thoughts 19, 20 and 21 are Jets related.
Winnipeg Free Press: Hockey fever sweeps Newfoundland. Seems like they may as well have made it a Provincial holiday with all the people attending today’s festivities.
Ottawa Citizen: Kraft Hockeyville game in St. John’s between Jets and Sens is a big deal. You can expect a lot of people to be tuning into Sports Radio 1290 from work today to catch all the action while at the office.
CBC: Jets, Senators connect the dots on The Rock. Always nice to hear former Jets star and current Sens coach Paul MacLean talking fondly of his time in Winnipeg.
The Star: Twin cities. Smug isn’t a word we in Winnipeg use (it’s hard to be smug with -20 degree winters) and while we may be a bit self-depreciating (see my earlier comment), perhaps it is time for folks in Winnipeg and Buffalo to stop thinking we are about to wake up from a dream.
Chris D: Win a pair of Jets tickets in a charity auction. If you want to go to the Home Opener against the Habs and want to support a good cause, here is your chance.
