Winnipeg Free Press: Skeptics who questioned taking Trouba now abashed.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets can’t be complacent. No point patting themselves on their back for a good two week road trip. Looking ahead the Jets face the Blues, Avalanche and Stars over the course of the next week.
Winnipeg Sun: Montoya solid backup for Jets. When he stays healthy he has been a solid option for coach Noel. Ken also looks at goal differential, Enstrom’s drought, polar opposite PP and PK, Kane’s man games lost and Albert watch.
Winnipeg Free Press: NHL owners committed to violence. Gary feels quite strongly on the subject of fighting in hockey. What do you think?
