Winnipeg Free Press:  Uproar over Wheeler being shut out of annual NHL farce not worth energy.  (Paywall).  Not sure many players are going to be too upset about getting five days to spend with their family instead of heading to this event.

Blake Wheeler failed shorthanded breakaway

Winnipeg Free Press:  Byfuglien named to NHL all-star team.  (Paywall).  One of the only times you will hear the big man request to play forward.

Winnipeg Sun:  Byfuglien’s last stand?  Will this be his last All-Star game or just his last All-Star game wearing a Jets jersey?

Winnipeg Sun:  Blake Wheeler, in midst of best season, shrugs off All-Star snub.  #26 surely didn’t sound too crushed by the snub.

Jets audio:

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Hustler and Lawless.  Darren Dreger tell the guys that, while it appears to make sense for Dale Tallon to want to pursue Dustin Byfuglien or Andrew Ladd given their history, Kevin Cheveldayoff is unlikely to pull the trigger on a trade in the near future.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Rona Roundtable.  Tim Campbell discusses the future of Andrew Ladd in Winnipeg and Connor Hellebuyck’s incredible performance vs. Nashville.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice scrum.  Thoughts on Byfuglien selection to the All-Star team.  Says something when there are only three defencemen and he is one of them.  Will it be fun to watch considering Byfuglien hates 3 on 3?  Will the financial reward lead to a better game?  On the growth of Dustin Byfuglien.  On Byfuglien playing a more consistent game.  Does he take extra pride on seeing how Byfuglien has embraced the defensive side of the game?  Reflections on last night’s road win.  2nd unit power play breaking the goose egg. What was different on the PP approach?  Challenge of Benn and Seguin.

Prospect news:

Illegal Curve:  Brendan Lemieux named OHL Player of the Month.  Quite a month of December for the young gun.
