Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest NHL, Jets and Moose news, video and audio.

Note:  While the Jets did their best to “stay in the fight” they ultimately couldn’t keep up with the Flames in last night’s 4-0 loss in game 4 which eliminated Winnipeg from the play-in series.  Following the game Jets bench boss Paul Maurice provided some clarity on his skating wounded.  What happens next is unknown but I suspect it will involve some sort of end of season availability.  We will advise when it becomes known.

Note II:  While normally it would be a long time (aside from end of season housekeeping) for more news the Jets silver lining could come on Monday when they will be one of eight teams who have a chance to win the first overall pick at the 2020 draft.

Jets news: Jets have reasons to be optimistic despite losing in Cup Qualifiers.  Time to look for the silver lining and for the Jets that reality is you have a much easier summer than you did last summer.

The Hockey News:  The Jets are tough to evaluate after a cursed seasonIt may be tough to evaluate but folks around these parts are going to have quite a bit of time for introspection and reflection about the 2019-20 season.

CBC: For the Winnipeg Jets, the strangest season ever ends with a Kubrick-worthy anticlimaxIt certainly was quite the conclusion to one of the strangest seasons on record.

The Athletic Winnipeg:  In a season haunted by ghosts, Jets’ whirlwind ends without regret. (Paywall).  It cannot be easy to have been part of this attempt to return to play only to go home less than two weeks after it all got started in Edmonton.  

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets continue to go in wrong direction with loss in qualifying roundThe headline is a tad harsh given the losses of Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine.  Not sure many teams can lose those two types of players and be able to compete.

Sportsnet:  Jets’ adversity-filled year ends with ‘complete emptiness’ after eliminationHad this been story book ending Winnipeg would have rolled along to the Stanley Cup given what they dealt with during 2019-20 but this is real life and with the loss of 55 and 29 there wasn’t going to be a happy ending for this short-manned Jets team. 

Sportsnet: Milan Lucic helps Flames fight through series win against Jets. The big man for Calgary was able to get it done with his fists but also had an impact with his stick.

TSN: Losses of Scheifele and Laine too much to overcome for Jets.  After Game 1 saw Winnipeg lose both Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine, it was an uphill climb for the Jets that ultimately came up short. TSN’s Craig Button has more on the Jets’ struggles, and how strong Calgary looks heading into the round of 16.

TSN:  Injuries led to Winnipeg’s untimely endTSN’s Sara Orlesky says that while the losses of Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine were obviously tough to overcome, there is also much credit due to the play of Cam Talbot in the Flames net.
