Note: As September rolls around and all this month we wanted to bring to your attention the Pass it Forward program which provides help to youth in Winnipeg who wish to play hockey but require aid in getting the necessary equipment. The program is in it’s 4th year, they have a brand new website, an active twitter feed @PassItForwardca, and they are giving away a team-signed picture of last season’s opening faceoff. Be sure to check it out.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Slater works out with Jets teammates while waiting for lockout to end.   Slater joins his teammates still skating at the MTS Centre.

CBA news:

Boston Herald:  Key to lockout cannot be foundMore and more people are starting to talk full year lockout and that should have fans very worried about the prospect of losing another entire NHL season.

Denver Post:  Gary Bettman doesn’t deserve all blame for NHL lockoutWhile he is a lightning rod for criticism, the point is he is doing the work that he is paid to do on behalf of his 30 employers.

KSDK:  Blues equipment manager takes on new job during NHL lockoutTo meet one of the true victims of this lockout, here is exhibit A.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:  Unity a key for locked-out playersUntil the players start missing pay periods you should not expect any break in the current projected unity of the union.

Globe and Mail:  Cattle crossing offers Gary Bettman a timely diversion from NHL lockoutDoes Martin Havlat really think that fans are going to cry for him because the owners called him a name and have said worse?  Really?  Players need to focus on the negotiations because trying to align yourself with fans is just the wrong way to play this.  Hockey fans can see right through this transparent move.

Globe and Mail:  NHL needs to acknowledge the ‘hoser effect’And this is why the players are right in asking why they should save the NHL from themselves?  Instead of trying to prop up failing teams in markets that are ill equipped for them, why not move the franchise(s) to more viable areas (i.e. Southern Ontario, Quebec, etc.) where an increase in revenue is inevitable.
