Note: Will today be the day that #TrotzWatch comes to an end? Maybe not but as you can see in Mike McIntyre’s article below it could be happening pretty, pretty, pretty soon.
Note II: Yesterday I did a quick look at all the free things Barry Trotz has been offered if he accepts the Winnipeg Jets head coaching job. List includes: Beer, Sausage, Oil changes, Free-range eggs, Countryfest tickets 4 life and a Dauphin Herald subscription. And he’ll be paid millions of dollars to coach. Seems like a pretty, pretty, pretty good deal from his fellow Manitobans. If you know of anything missing from this list send me a tweet here.
Note III: Regardless of whether the Jets hire a new head coach today or tomorrow before 9 AM you better join us on Saturday for what could prove to be a very interesting and eventful Illegal Curve Hockey Show.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets, Trotz, get back to the table, coach’s decision imminent. Selfishly I hope they could do this by Friday night so we can have a hell of a Saturday morning Illegal Curve Hockey Show.
