Monday Papers

Monday, August 20th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Business soars thanks to Jets suite. Jets games are not just an opportunity to go watch your favourite NHL team play. Many businesses use the games, whether it is in a suite or with regular season tickets, as an opportunity to sell themselves to their clients, or reward clients for their support with tickets.

CBA news:

Pioneer Press: NHL lockout talk is bad timing for Wild. What was looking like a season of ‘Minnesota Nice’ could turn into some serious ‘Minnesota Ice’, but not of the variety that players skate on, unfortunately. Regardless of when the season begins, folks in Minnesota are going to have a lot of fun for years to come with this up and coming team.

Edmonton Journal: How would an NHL lockout impact a young team like the Edmonton. Just what the rest of the league needs, these young gun Oilers having an opportunity to continue to develop.

Montreal Gazette: Gary Bettman’s labour of love. The tide appears to have turned on the NHL Commissioner who is taking it on the cheek during the most recent CBA negotiations.

Toronto Sun: NHL labour talks? Don’t know. Don’t care. Are you reading as much CBA news as you possibly can or has it already become a “wake me up when its over” type of situation?

NHL news:

San Jose Mercury News: As NHL bargaining heats up, a closer look at Sharks ownership group. Informative read on the Sharks ownership group.

Detroit Free Press: Niklas Kronwall must elevate his game. As Kramer once warned Jerry, “understudies are a very shifty bunch”, but in this instance, it looks like Kronwall should be ready to be the center of attention. I watched a lot of Wings games live and the expression “being Kronwalled” is something many opposition players learn they had best avoid.

Waterloo Record: Underhill works with Leaf prospects. Always interesting to read about the different methods teams use, both conventional and unconventional, to help develop their young players.

Globe and Mail: Markham arena developer defends economic model. This arena project continues to move forward despite the skepticism of many that without an NHL tenant, it is not a viable option.
