Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Kane growing up in the NHLJets fans just want to believe in the young gun and hope that with any maturity comes the extra bonus of more goals.  The belief is Evander can become a 40 goal scorer and but for his concussion we might be witnessing that this season.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Tinkering with the offenceLooks like Burmistrov is moving on up to another line.  The talented forward will possibly be playing with Kane and Wellwood.  We will know more at today’s practice if Coach Noel is gonna stick with the lines he used yesterday.  As always follow @illegalcurve for the latest news and updates.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Noel’s message receivedIf the team wants to have success you need to listen to the message being sent by your coach.  Watching Mercer on the ice with the GST line was quite humourous.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Hockey’s Winnerpeg past hits big screenHopefully in this instance the city is doomed to repeat history and can, like the Winnipeg Victoria’s, win a Stanley CupSounds like quite an interesting movie project, which had Mark Chipman and Kevin Cheveldayoff attend the premier.

Winnipeg Sun:  Bench too warm for Eric Fehr The big winger from Winkler is having one of those season’s to forget.  One cannot help but feel that he is still not 100% after off-season shoulder surgery.

Winnipeg Sun:  Must-win for JetsYou hate to call a game a must-win, since it seems like every Jets game for the remainder of the season might be so titled, but you cannot afford to lose a game to a team below you in the standings.

Globe and Mail:  Winnipeg can’t get over humpThe Jets chances jumped courtesy of the Capitals loss to the SharksEven though it shouldn’t be close, the Jets remain in the hunt thanks to the less than stellar play of their Eastern competition.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets promote readingA worthwhile endevour and a nice reward for the classrooms that won the writing contest.

Globe and Mail:  Noel steers clear of trade deadline frenzyAs coach Noel often says “I coach the team I have in front of me”.  There is no point in speculating for him as he has to play the hand he has been dealt.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel press conferenceWide ranging presser covering deep thinking which began with some Valentine’s Day laughter and ends with trade news.

Illegal Curve:  Jets post practice audioSpoke with Zach Bogosian, Ondrej Pavelec, Tim Stapleton and Ron Hainsey.

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps & Colorado Eagles:

The Telegram:  Multilingual blueliner plays a punishing styleThe hope is that Kulda is one of those prospects that continues to develop and that you might expect to see in a Jets jersey in the next year or so on a regular basis.  Winnipeg had been eyeing Crunch’s Macenauer for awhileInteresting to hear he was on the Jets radar since last summer.

Northern Colorado:  Forney returns to EaglesHe has produced nearly a point per game in the ECHL so far this seasonThe Eagles are sitting 4th overall in the Western Conference.

Next opponent news – New York Islanders:

Newsday:  Islanders need to rebound on two-game tripEvery game is so important, especially as GMs are trying to decide if they are going to be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline.
