With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. If you’d like to help the Illegal Curve team as we raise money and awareness you are welcome to do so; Dave, Ezra & Drew.

Vigier

Winnipeg Free Press:  Hoping to knock out the lockout Jets’ ears perking upBoth Stuart and Ladd are not going to be jumping for joy at the talks so far just yet.  While these are the most sustained conversations between the NHL and NHLPA, some major issues still need to be discussed and compromises found.

CBC:  IceCaps fall as power-play goals boost MonarchsIt has been a bumpy road for the Jets affiliate as they try and regain the formidable touch they had last season.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Terms of next CBA crucial to futureLong term viability in this city can be helped with favourable CBA terms.

thescore.com:  NHL, NHLPA meet for 13 hours; will meet again todayFans are finally getting the negotiations they deserved to see 3 months ago.  Better late than never, but it will be for naught if both sides don’t compromise.

Globe and Mail:  Lockout optimism softens but dialogue will continueNeither side talking to the media is a good thing.  At this point, they both know that they cannot afford to slip up, so they are avoiding same by avoiding the media.  Sure there are some “insiders” on both sides feeding some stories but nothing of significance is on the record.

New York Times:  As NHL talks continue, NBA could aid in solutionOf the three options it really appears only one is viable for the NHL model.  This one is is similar to what our own Richard Pollock discussed back in July.

ESPN:  Make Whole chatter will determine futureThe players have fought tooth and nail to ensure that the contracts they signed in ‘good faith’ will be honoured and it will be interesting to see how that conversation goes during today’s meetings.

Globe and Mail:  Municipal election gives Coyotes another headache So what we know is that absolutely nothing has changed from the status quo in Glendale until these political races are decided.  With the recession continuing folks in hard hit Arizona remain unlikely to spend their tax dollars on the Coyotes.
