Winnipeg Sun:  Fingers crossed for KaneThe Jets still didn’t have an update on the sniper (stay tuned to @illegalcurve for any further developments) but of course the team is hoping that it isn’t too significant.  Ken writes about the injury and Mark Scheifele’s comments on the collision.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice scrum from California (audio).  Were they as good as everyone thought they were after a night’s sleep?  Update on Evander Kane?  Where was Michael Frolik from practice?  Does he expect to have Evander at all this weekend?  Does he expect to see Michael Hutchinson this weekend?  Might it depend on Pavelec’s workload?  What does he like about Byfuglien with Wheeler/Scheifele?  Who might draw in for Kane?  Thoughts on the power play.  Thoughts on Adam Lowry’s first game.  Did he watch the Sharks game vs. L.A.?  Any thoughts on road teams spoiling home owners?

TSN 1290  Winnipeg:  Rona Roundtable (audio).  Former NHL Goaltender and Goalie Coach Corey Hirsch joined Rick Ralph on the Rona Roundtable and said that we’ve seen Ondrej Pavelec play well but the key to this season will be to play well consistently on a nightly basis.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  The Big Show (audio).  With Evander Kane going down in the Winnipeg Jets season opener, play-by-play man Paul Edmonds thinks Dustin Byfuglien can be a big force playing beside Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler.
