Winnipeg Sun: Struggling Jets power play gets fresh coat of paint. The power play was an anemic three for their last 33 and had slipped from the top 10 to 16th overall in the NHL. It was time to make changes. 

Winnipeg Free Press: If you can’t beat Columbus you gotta get greasy. (Paywall). Before folks lose their minds about losing to Columbus the last four games the Blue Jackets beat the Leafs, Jets and Stars and lost to the Devils by a goal. Of course that game could have had a vastly different outcome if the power plays had gone differently for Winnipeg. 

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets need to make a move. (Paywall). I think it is overly reactionary to suggest that the loss to the Blue Jackets is what necessitated a move for Winnipeg. As illustrated above Columbus has knocked off some pretty good hockey teams this week. Having said that we know that the Jets need to add depth to contend deep into the playoffs.

Sportsnet: Jets players keenly aware of deadline with Cheveldayoff poised to be active. Ken chronicles the news of the day on Saturday which were all the changes to the lines and power play units and also weaves in some trade discussion as well.
