Note: Be sure to check out the CIRV stat which was produced by our very own Ezra Ginsburg. The CIRV or “Comback Impact Ratio Value” is specifically what percentage of a player’s points occur when his team was behind.
Winnipeg Sun: St. John’s set to trim roster. Tough position to be in for AHL teams as they have a number of players who will depart for the NHL once the season resumes. Definitely impacts who they let go.
Winnipeg Sun: Passion drives IceCaps coach. The devil is in the details, and coach McCambridge is extremely thorough in his preparation.
Winnipeg Sun: Burmistrov looking to repair shaken confidence in St. John’s. It sounds like the young Jet is doing exactly what the team needs from him, putting forth a strong effort to help flush out his game in the minors. This can only help the young Russian in his development, which was rushed by the Thrashers.
NHL.com: Scheifele scores winner as the Colts edge the Petes 4-3. The Jets first rounder is having a great start to his campaign in Barrie.
CBC: NHL lockout hurts Jets-fuelled Winnipeg businesses. Before you had the Jets, these businesses thrived with 41 nights of Manitoba Moose AHL hockey.

The Hockey News: Why the players will win in the long-run. Smith makes some interesting points on why ‘losing’ can lead to ‘winning’ in the end.

Edmonton Journal: Looking out for #1 – How Eric Lindros showed the way for modern players. The Big E did things his own way and while the players are a collective voice these days, they are certainly looking out for themselves.
TSN: Bryzgalov thinks some Russian players might stay in KHL. Maybe some mid to lower level talent, but I seriously doubt any of the big boys would choose the KHL over the NHL in the end.
