Jets and Preds 2nd Period edit

Winnipeg Sun:  Fehr’s play nets ice timeThe big winger from Winkler remains snake bitten although he did have a couple of good chances last night.

TSN: Jets reach halfway mark on a solid noteThat was a nice first half for the Jets but the tough part is just getting started.  With 6 more road games and 4 at home, it is going to be a busy January.

Buffalo News:  Bogosian has warm memories of BuffaloSome interesting insight into the Jets young stud defeceman.

Grand Forks Herald:  UND tops Clarkson in Winnipeg.   Some fun college hockey was played in front of 7000 fans, both curious Manitobans and Fighting Sioux faithful up from North Dakota.

Next opponent news – Boston Bruins:

Boston Herald:  Canucks make Bruins pay for penaltiesMemo to the Jets on how to beat the B’s.

Boston Globe:  Poor decisions prove costly for BruinsThe Jets are going to be facing some surly Bruins on Tuesday night as I’m sure coach Julien won’t let his players take it easy for next couple of nights.

Realignment news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Chipman, Hainsey at odds This is clearly just the opening salvo in the upcoming labour battle, I mean negotiation.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jet says proposed alignment has flawsThere is no question that there are flaws in the system.  Personally I am fine with the delay, in order that they can get it right.  The players can’t like the Jets playing in one of the two conferences with 8 teams, with only 4 playoff spots up for grabs.  Especially when the other two conferences have 7 teams with 4 playoff slots.

Winnipeg Sun:  Nasty battle brewing over realignmentI’m sure most fans who pay hard-earned money to these billionaire owners and millionaire players don’t really feel too badly over “travel schedules” and “playoff realignment”.  Both sides better do their best to get something done.
