Winnipeg Sun: Jets look to roll into all-star break on winning note. Gonna be a big game tonight in Philly for the Jets and Scott gets you set up ahead of the action.

Winnipeg Free Press: Connor pumped to showcase his talents in Las Vegas. (Paywall). He seemed less than enthused during his media availability but it should still be a good experience for the 2015 1st rounder to gain some national exposure.
Winnipeg Free Press: If Jets can find a way to do what they say, they’ll win. (Paywall). Play the way they did against the Penguins (except for that small lapse) and against the Blues on Saturday and they have themselves a solid template for success.

Discusses idea of Jets being buyers or sellers at trade deadline, if they’d try to retool/rebuild, Lundell vs Perfetti, signing Pierre-Luc Dubois with lure of playing alongside Kyle Connor for years to come, making space on backend for prospects, plan for Ville Heinola, potential Jets interest in Jakob Chychrun and what is happening with Evgeni Svechnikov
The Athletic Winnipeg: Mark Scheifele concerns, Andrew Copp’s trade value and Jets forwards’ defensive struggles: Mailbag. (Paywall). It must be mailbag time as Murat also put out his answers to your queries.
