Monday Papers

Monday, August 27th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

All is silent on the Jets front.

CBA news:

TSN: NHL, NHLPA set to resume CBA negotiations on Tuesday. Let’s hope they decide to meet for a bit longer this week. Neither side is showing the sense of urgency required at this late point in the negotiating period.

Toronto Sun: Comparing the CBAs. Taking a look at the 3 other major sports CBAs in comparison to the current NHL CBA.

Toronto Sun: Ready to be bored, NHL fans? As our poll indicates, fans are cheering for neither side. Both sides continue to pay lip service to the people who truly matter, the fans, knowing that they will return to NHL arenas the moment the puck is ready to be dropped.

Edmonton Journal: Fehr will have to address NHL’s agenda sooner or later. Why worry about it today when he can deal with it tomorrow? The biggest frustration for fans has been the lack of urgency both sides have displayed.

NHL news:

The Province: Doan’s agent sets firm deadline. Of course Doan’s agent wants to sign a deal before the current CBA expiration. If any of the numbers ‘out there’ are even close to true, then it is in his client’s best interest to get something signed. While it is clear that he wants to stay in Phoenix, it does not appear likely that potential Coyotes owner Greg Jamison will have the deal wrapped up by then.

The Tennessean: Predators may still have slight edge over Red Wings. Every team yard stick of measurement always seems to be against Detroit, which goes to show you how solid that organization has been over the past two decades.

CSN Washington: Should Ovechkin play in Russia? Would the rest (if there is a lockout) be more beneficial than having Ovi continue to hone his game, albeit in the KHL?
