Friday Papers

Friday, November 23rd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets & Affiliate news:

Illegal Curve: Lockout audio. Spoke with Andrew Ladd and Blues Ryan Reaves. Ladd has quite a bit to say about Hamrlik as well as decertification.

The NHL has cancelled another 2 weeks of schedule today. The Jets games that are lost are; Home Games - Lightning, Bruins, Hurricanes &, Islanders. Away Games - Penguins & Leafs.

CBA news:

Toronto Star: Don Cherry to players - smarten up. Gotta love Cherry. He is bang on, the personal attacks by players on Bettman are completely counter-productive and do nothing to align players with fans against owners, which appears to be the intent. Also love how he gets in the Kadri plug.

Montreal Gazette: Habs’ owner Molson optimistic about season. A great interview with the owner of the Canadiens.

Globe and Mail: Exasperated Ryan Miller heartily endorses decertification of union. Always seen as a bit more cerebral, the Sabres goalie lets it all out in this letter to the Globe and Mail.

Toronto Star: Cracks appear in players’ armour after Hamrlik comments. As I said yesterday it is not shocking that a 38 year old player like Hamrlik, who was slated to make 3.5 million this season, made the comments he did.

Los Angeles Times: NHL follows NBA only so far. Will the NHL be able to come to a resolution like the NBA did to save the season? Remains to be seen.

TSN: Three CBA-related issues to be talked about soon. With regards to issue 1, it could mean another 2 weeks of games, which for Jets fans would see 7 games cancelled (assuming NHL cancels games until December 15th when Winnipeg would have played Pittsburgh at MTS Centre).

NHL news:

CBC: Hamilton Bulldog Blake Geoffrion thanks fans after serious injury. While this could have turned out much worse, Geoffrion was quite lucky and had the benefit of excellent medical staff.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts. We have all the latest news from both the Calgary and Toronto perspective.
