Radio Show Preview

Also scheduled to be interviewed are the play by play voice of the Brandon Wheat Kings, Bruce Luebke, as the Wheaties open their first round WHL playoff series in Regina versus the Pats, and Chris Peters of United States of Hockey to discuss the un-drafted free agent college players who are being signed to contracts by various NHL teams, and to discuss the upcoming NCAA Hockey Playoffs.
Winnipeg Free Press: Under construction – Three NHL team blueprints. Ed discusses the Blues and Avalanche models for success and whether the Jets might be on a similar path.
Winnipeg Sun: Tango cashes in. Firstly props for the reference to the 1989 classic starring Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russel in that headline. Secondly, the article discusses Tangradi seizing the opportunity that has been presented.
Winnipeg Sun: With all the injuries, Winnipeg Jets depth a high point. When fans heard no Bogosian and Byfuglien against Colorado there was likely an audible groan but Postma and Tangradi were tossed in and the Jets pulled off a much needed victory. Of course trying to fill the void left by Scheifele at 2C is proving a bit more difficult but the depth is starting to show for this organization.
CBC: Paul Maurice has turned around Jets, sights set on future. Next it becomes a question of signing his name on the dotted line sometime this summer once he has had an opportunity to reevaluate and reflect on the season that was.
