CBC: Elliotte Friedman’s 30 Thoughts. It is quite the Winnipeg Jets affair today as they get the preamble as well as the first five of his 30 Thoughts.
Winnipeg Free Press: Playing for Maurice a learning experience. He certainly engaged his players a lot on the bench. Will be curious to see if he maintains this for the rest of the season.
Winnipeg Free Press: First, the good news… Paul Maurice loves a challenge. Which team did we see last night because that didn’t seem like the Winnipeg Jets we have watched all season long. While the team showed some gumption last night, can this be maintained?
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets notes. Some players have had a lot of head coaches whereas others are getting their first experience with same. Also in the article they mention the Jets announced a night to promote mental health awareness.
Winnipeg Sun: Ladd provides coach Maurice with memento after win in Jets debut. It will go with his Hartford Whalers puck and should serve as a nice memory of his first game in Winnipeg. Jets fans hope it is the first of many.
Winnipeg Sun: Maurice has open mind on Winnipeg Jets goaltenders. He just wants someone to step up and help this team. Seemed to shed the concern about labels (i.e. #1 and backup) in favour of the novel concept of seeing someone step up to win games.
Winnipeg Sun: Paul Maurice brings palpable intensity, confidence to Jets. He hit the ground running yesterday and both of these words aptly describe the feeling that many felt within the media press conference held at the MTS Centre.
TSN: Jets up their game in Maurice’s debut. From high atop the ice surface Dennis gives you his insight into last night’s contest.
CBC: Jets fans have hope for new coach Paul Maurice. Fans were asked to react to the hiring at the MTS Centre last night and not surprisingly the responses were optimistic.
Illegal Curve: Jets lift suspension of Ivan Telegin and assign him to KHL. Somewhat lost in all the insanity of yesterday was news that the Jets lifted the suspension of the Russian forward. No reason was given and the Jets didn’t send out a release.
