Winnipeg Sun: Time for action? Roslovic will show Jets when he’s ready. He was one of the best players in the AHL for 2016-17 and into 2017-18 before getting recalled to the Jets when Mark Scheifele was injured last December. Do we see him flip spots with Bryan Little sooner rather than later?
Winnipeg Free Press: First four Jets games reveal a few flaws. (Paywall). Mike has some questions after the season began a week ago including: 1) Sure, it’s early, but what the heck has gotten into these guys? 2) Sure, it’s early, but what’s happened to the potent offence? 3) Sure, it’s early, but what to do about the blue-line blunders?
