Note: Reminder it is going to be a busy July coming up for Illegal Curve as we conclude the 2021 season. Our regular Illegal Curve Hockey Show will continue on Saturdays. In addition to these shows we will have three extra shows including one with a focus on the Seattle Expansion Draft on July 21st, the 1st round of the NHL Draft on July 23rd as well as a Free Agency Round Up show on July 28th.
Note II: Have a question about the Jets? Murat will be responding to some later in his Athletic mailbag later this week.
The Athletic Winnipeg: Andrew Copp trade could allow Jets to solve 3 problems in a single move. But at what cost? (Paywall). Killing three birds with one stone is quite the feat and Murat delves into that topic as the hockey talk picks back up after a summer lull.
Sportsnet: Jets off-season to-do list: Upgrading defence an urgent priority and more. Ken wrote about the Jets need to: 1) Finalize the protected list. 2) Figure out where things stand with Copp. 3) Upgrade the defence. 4) Decide if it’s short-term or longer-term for Pionk. 5) Hire a head coach for the Manitoba Moose.
