Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Jets news.

Note:  The Jets kicked off their four game home stand with an important victory over division rival Dallas.  Today they will put that win in the rear view mirror as they get ready for a surly (they lost 5-2 to Montreal last night) St. Louis Blues team who will be here tomorrow night.

Note II:  Tune into NHL Mid-Week on TSN 1290 Winnipeg tonight from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Join the guys as they analyze Tueday’s Jets-Stars game, preview tomorrow night’s Jets-Blues game and take a look around the NHL.

Standings watch: Canucks won. Flames lost.  Avalanche lost.  Wild lost.  Stars lost.  Kings won.  Winnipeg currently sits 6th in the Western Conference.  They are in the first Wild card spot four points up on Minnesota (2 games in hand) and five up on Calgary (2 games in hand).  Sportsclubstats currently has Jets playoff chances at 63.4%.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Unwise trade would be un-Chevy.  With all the trade speculation that is out there Gary writes about the need for the Jets GM to have his long term glasses on while he contemplates any deals prior to the deadline.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Not classic, but a big win.  You can add the two points to the standings bank but the Jets would be wise not to duplicate that effort against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Winnipeg Sun:  It’s Hutchinson down the stretch; Buff Shines again for Jets.  Unsurprisingly Hutchinson following the game still wouldn’t talk about himself as #1.  Instead he focused on how the team needs wins to make the playoffs saying “whether it’s myself or Pavs playing, as long as we can win games and get the team in the playoffs, that’s the only thing that matters.”

Dallas Morning News:  After Stars find another way to lose, has sun officially set on their season?  Love the Groundhog Day reference by Stars coach Ruff.  Read the game break down from Stars beat writer Mike Heika.

Sportsnet: Burmistrov open to returning to NHL, Jets.  Lots of speculation of what the young centre might do next season.  Lots of chatter that he could be a trade chip for Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff.
