Jets news:

TSN: Draft report. The TSN crew takes a look at the Jets position this year.

Illegal Curve: Where does Evander Kane score from. The web has been abuzz with Kane talk after a tweet from an RDS reporter about the status of Evander’s negotiations with the Jets. You are better off focusing on Richard’s in-depth analysis of where the Jets sniper scores his goals from.

General NHL news:

Detroit Free Press: Exit interview with legendary Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom. If you read any of today’s links it should be this one as Mitch Albom and Nicklas Lidstrom had a 2 hour Q & A which is really insightful into the Red Wings retired star.

National Post: NHL has tough road ahead after troubling year. It will be difficult for fans to fell any empathy for billionaire owners fighting with millionaire players, while they shell out their hard earned dollars to support both of the above. If there is going to be a lockout this year, it has more the feeling of an NBA style one from this past year, than what happened to the NHL back in 2005.

Ottawa Sun: Contract talks going really well’ – Karlsson. Excellent news for Sens fans. Having watched him a couple of times at the MTS Centre, I can attest to his skill, skill that Ottawa is going to want to lock up long term.

Buffalo News: Extra picks gives Sabres several draft options. After last season’s disappointment it is time for some excitement in upper New York State.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Ray Shero’s past and future picks. That is some serious drafting talent. Memo to the other NHL teams.

Newsday: This could be a wide open NHL trade season. Hopefully you listened to the Illegal Curve Hockey Show yesterday as the discussion of the upcoming NHL draft and all the possibly trades was talked about. Going to be a crazy week.

The Tennessean: Predators hold out hope of retaining Ryan Suter. There is going to be a lot of competition for the stud defenceman.

National Post: Canada pulling for Quebec City, Halifax for next NHL team. No surprise that with the Jets being back, Canada is now hoping to see the return of the Nordiques.

Thanks for the heads up on the Mitch Albom article On Lidstrom for my money Mitch is in a league of his own as a sports writer. Detroit (and all of Michigan) are so lucky to have him cover their teams. A master wordsmith If there ever was one.
