Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff press conference on Paul Maurice extension

The Jets GM spoke about extending Paul Maurice.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff

Following the scrum with Jets head coach Paul Maurice it was Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff’s opportunity to address the news that he had extended his head coach.

Kevin Cheveldayoff scrum topics:  Why now for the extension?  How has he seen him evolve as a coach and why does he continue to be a fit for the organization? How important is continuity for a head coach (which is rare these days)?  What has stood out to him from Paul Maurice this season?  What goes into his coaching evaluation?  On how players treat the coach.  Are his contract and Paul Maurice’s end at the same time?  Is his longer?  Has the need to “shake things up” crossed his mind?  Did he get the temperature of the room before extending the coach?  Anything new with the assistant coaches?  Anything new about Dustin Byfuglien situation?  Are they working towards a resolution?  Has his approach changed this season to trade deadline?  What was it like for him to see what happened to Jay Bouwmeester?

Can only keep a Winnipegger away from Manitoba for so long before the pull to come home gets you.
