Note: Happy Canada Day everyone!
Note II: We are told teams are not supposed to talk term and money but it sure sounds like agents and their clients new teams have done just that based on the flurry of tweets we saw last night. Regardless the official start time of NHL Free Agency isn’t until 11 AM CT. Here is the complete list of the Winnipeg Jets (and Manitoba Moose) UFAs and what they are projected to receive on their next contract.
Today’s Jets news:
The Athletic Winnipeg: What is Winnipeg’s best play in free agency? Be patient, read and react. (Paywall). Wondering what the best course of action for the Jets will be? Murat charts the path he thinks is most prudent.
Older Jets news:
Winnipeg Sun: Jets mostly window shopping as to-do list remains long for Cheveldayoff. No rest for the Jets GM and his staff. Ken looks at what’s up.
The Athletic Winnipeg: Ranking the importance of Winnipeg’s own unrestricted free agents. (Paywall). With the Jets not bringing any UFAs into the city during the meeting phase is it possible they re-populate from within? Murat looks into this further.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets shopping for Stanley Cup-winning talent with garage sale-hunter’s budget. (Paywall). So many question marks for the Jets in advance of Monday’s free agency kick off. Mike looks at the many areas of concern.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
