Winnipeg Free Press: Jets’ page-turner of a season in limbo. (Paywall). The 2019-20 season is likely gonna go down as one of the most interesting ones since relocation. A team that looked like it had no chance at the post-season but thanks mostly to a heroic vezina/hart worthy campaign by Connor Hellebuyck was primed to get in. But now depending on how long this goes and what the NHL decides to do could find themselves on the outside looking in.

The Athletic Winnipeg: Wiebe’s mailbag: Pausing the NHL, the 2015 line, blue line projections and more. (Paywall). Readers had questions and Ken has answers in his mailbag column.
Toronto Star: A one-game Stanley Cup final? Playoffs for everyone? Here’s what the post-coronavirus NHL might look like. There are all sorts of scenarios and while it still feels like it might be awhile before it gets going again you can bet the NHL is gonna be looking at this every single day until the season resumes.
