Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers (Friday, Oct. 21st)

Jets are playing the wrong way. Burmistrov best thing about Jets, so far. Penalty trouble costs Jets points. Jets not generating enough offence. Play him, or send him back. Byfuglien’s lawyer to enter not-guilty plea. Jets keen to host Heritage Classic. Antropov like a father to linemate Burmistrov. Meech making his case to play.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Playing the wrong wayThe Jets team might not be panicking but the fans sure are.  I listened to the Rick Ralph post game on TSN Radio 1290 and the majority of the calls were fans with “fixes” for the Jets.  They called for everything from removing Ladd’s “C” to bringing back guys like Jason Krog and Lee Goren.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Burmistrov best thing about Jets, so farHe is leading the Jets in points total, although his 5 points currently has him ranked 65th overall in the NHL.
Jets vs. Sens1

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets should emerge as contender, eventuallyWell at least Jets fans can console themselves that the team could end up with a kid named  Nail Yakupov (the projected first overall pick next season) if they keep this upAnd if you think the media has gone bananas with Jets cliches, just wait till they have a kid with the first name Nail to talk about.

TSN:  Penalty trouble costs Jets points. While the penalties against the Leafs were questionable, the Jets took lazy penalties against the Senators.  Simply unacceptable since these were 2 points the Jets need if they actually plan on making some noise in the East.

Barrie Examiner:  Play him, or send him backThey certainly want Scheifele back in Barrie.  With the limited ice he’s seeing in the NHL and with only 3 games left before he hits 9 NHL games, the Jets have to make a decision sooner rather than later.

Winnipeg Sun:   Jets Snapshots – not generating enough offenceWell if the Jets don’t start doing something right soon, this is going to be the reality for the remainder of the season.

Winnipeg Free Press:  The man behind the moustacheMacLean is seen as a great veterans coach, so guys like Spezza and Alfredsson should be happy with the change in regime from Cory Clouston.

Globe and Mail:  Byfuglien’s lawyer to enter not-guilty plea in boating incidentThe legal case hasn’t gone away and today is the first step in Big Buff’s court case in Minnesota.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets keen to host Heritage ClassicAs Gary said to Dennis Beyak during the 2nd intermission, anytime the city of Winnipeg gets handed an event to host (i.e. World Juniors, Pan Am Games or Grey Cup) they always take it to another level.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets Antropov like a father to linemate BurmistrovBased on the way Burmistrov is playing this season, the mentoring is working.  Coach Noel said in last night’s post game media scrum that Burmistrov has been the best Jets player this season.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets Meech making caseHe could very easily replace one of the defencemen currently listed in the Jets top 6.  With Hainsey expected out another week he will continue to get opportunities to prove his worth.

Washington Examiner:  In Canada, fans don’t have Jet lagClass move by the Leafs showing the Welcome back Jets video on the big screen and the ovation from the Leafs fans.
