Week of June 25th-July 1st - Sunday Papers

Sunday, July 1st Jets and NHL Free Agency news

Illegal Curve Hockey Show Programming Note:

Celebrate Canada Day by joining Illegal Curve as they broadcast a special edition of The Illegal Curve Hockey Show, live-on-location from the Winnipeg Free Press Café. Beginning at 9:00 AM on TSN Radio 1290 and winnipegfreepress.com, enjoy breakfast and Illegal Curve as the guys keep you abreast of the latest signings, trades and free agency maneuvers involving the Winnipeg Jets and the 29 other NHL teams during a special Free Agent Frenzy edition of The Illegal Curve Hockey Show.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Nine Jets still unsigned. We will know today if the Jets have any more of their guys signed or if they will allow them to test free agency. Which player (UFA) is the one you’d most like to see with a Jets contract by July 2nd?


Winnipeg Sun: Big free agent moves not in Jets’ DNA. When weighing the pressure or winning now versus building for the future, the team has to make a logical decision based on whether they feel spending big dollars will help them get over the hump. In the Jets case, they have committed to building towards the future and that means for the next year or three fans might have to accept that Winnipeg won’t be a significant player in free agency.

NHL Free Agency:

New York Post: If Parise wants in, Rangers will listen. Or has his agent said, let’s not say no to any team, so we can keep our leverage high with Detroit, New Jersey and L.A.?

The Tennessean: Predators wait on Suter. He is fielding offers from a number of teams, and it is expected that division rival Detroit will be putting on a full court press to acquire the defender.

Toronto Sun: Top 30 available NHL talent. The Jets are represented by Wellwood (19) and Gustavsson (30). Who on the list might be a worthwhile find for Chevy and company?

Edmonton Journal: Oilers sales pitch wins over Schultz. So much for free agents not wanting to go to a small city like Edmonton. Players want to win, and the expectation is the young gun Oilers could be a big winner in the next couple of years and it appears they have just added an important piece of the puzzle.

TSN: Sortable free agent tracker. You can pay close attention to all the action with this useful tool from TSN.

Monday Papers

Monday, June 25th Jets, General and NHL Draft news

Jets news:

TSN: Cheveldayoff happy with Jets haul at draft. How much happier would he be if he had been in a position to make a trade with the Islanders at this year's draft. (If you're scratching your head, it was revealed today that the Islanders offered all their picks in the 2012 Entry draft for the Jackets 2nd pick, which was the highly coveted Ryan Murray).

Winnipeg Free Press: Team adds draft picks and intrigue. Controversy has erupted over the fact that after the 13 choices the past two Entry drafts the Jets have yet to draft a single player from overseas. Fans were also initially upset with the fact that the Jets chose defence over offence, although that complaint appears to have subsided. Which just goes to show that you can never please everyone.

Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele to play vs. Russians. The Jets number one pick last year wants to stick with the team and has spent the past year improving his skills and adding muscle to his young frame. Will be interesting to see if he has any chemistry with Lukas Sutter who will also be on the team.

Winnipeg Sun: Gustavsson uncertain about future with Jets. Will be interesting to see what happens over the course of the next week in terms of the Jets goalie situation. If they don’t handle things properly we might be seeing Joe Caligiuri back in net.


Winnipeg Sun: Mason wants a deal. The Red Deer native would love to be back in the Peg’ next season and we should know next week if that is going to be the case or not.

2012 NHL Entry Draft:

Illegal Curve: Reflections on the Draft Day 1 and Day 2. Some thoughts of the NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh from Tom Lynn, the former Assistant GM of the Minnesota Wild and currently of Veritas Hockey. Lots of talk about the Jets build process.

Illegal Curve: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff scrums on Day 1 and Day 2. The sophomore GM spent day 1 talking about the selection of Jacob Trouba. Whereas day 2 was spent discussing the acquisition of the negotiating rights to Jonas Gustavsson as well as the players selected.

Illegal Curve: Entire list of Jets picks. Here are Rounds 1-7 of the players selected by your Winnipeg Jets.

Illegal Curve: 1st Pick 9th Overall Jacob Trouba. Getting to know your newest member of the 1st round club for the Winnipeg Jets including some pre-draft analysis of him and a link to his twitter account. Despite the initial concerns over drafting a defenceman, our IC Poll shows that almost 85% of you are happy with this pick.

General NHL news:

Edmonton Journal: Oilers in the running for prime unrestricted free agent Justin Schultz. Good news Jets fans, these Oilers should just be peaking when the Jets return to the Western Conference. Anyone else feel like they’re in a Hot tub Time Machine? Hello 1980′s.

Globe and Mail: Brian Burke still has work to do, especially on Luongo. It is down to Florida and Toronto as the likely destinations for the Canucks tender.

Globe and Mail: Canadiens make the most of their top four picks. Many expect the Habs to bounce back after the disaster they experienced last season.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Big-name free agents on pickup list? The Penguins figure to be big players once free agency starts next Sunday.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, June 26th Jets, IceCaps and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Pavelec gets five-year deal, must now bump up game. The big concern is that now that the player has the big contract he will rest on his laurels and become complacent. Fans shouldn’t expect that from the Jets young goalie as he continues his quest to become an elite level talent in the NHL.


Winnipeg Sun: Turning attention to new deal with Kane. Now that they’ve gotten the Pavelec deal done, time for Chevy and company to get the Jets sniper signed.

Winnipeg Sun: Pavelec big piece of puzzle. There was a lot of concern going into this week as to what the Jets were going to do about locking up their goalies for next season. It looks like the starter position has been filled for the next 5 seasons.

Illegal Curve: Comments from Pavelec & Jets GM Cheveldayoff on contract. Pavelec said all the right things from his home in the Czech Republic and will have an opportunity next season to prove his worth.

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

The Telegram: Jets move to keep key IceCaps. Good news for Caps fans is the core group that was instrumental in propelling this team to 2nd in the East was qualified yesterday by the Jets.

General NHL news:

CBC: NHL brass muzzled, players not during labour talks. In the court of public opinion (not that this means much) the players ability to speak freely could help garner sympathy in their upcoming battle against ownership.

Edmonton Journal: Doors open for Schultz sale on Wednesday. You would think with this fanfare the teams are fighting for a 1st overall pick who pulled a Lindros and is waiting to be courted by another team. Obviously a number of teams are interested in his services (front runners being: Oilers, Wings, Leafs, Canucks and a few others) and it will be interesting to see who secures his services.

NHL.com: Sakic, Shanahan highlight list of expected Hall calls. Who will be the other 2 candidates to get the call today? Of that list which players are most deserving?

The Detroit News: NHL Awards Show needs to be put out of its misery. Hard to argue for the awards show being necessary having never watched one. Do you feel it is relevant?

National Post: NHL filled with history of brotherly love. Missing from this list are the Broten brothers (Neal, Aaron and Paul) from Roseau, Minnesota home of the Jets Dustin Byfuglien.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, June 27th Jets and General NHL news

Jets news:

Sportsnet: Canadian team free agency preview plans. Slow and steady wins the race, at least that is what Jets fans had best hope for....

Winnipeg Free Press: Chipman, Noel to chat Jets with Hustler and Lawless at News Café. An opportunity to see the owner and coach of your Winnipeg Jets at the News Café.

Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele, Trouba to be at Jets’ development camp. The Jets will gather their prospects at MTS Iceplex beginning Monday, July 9 and ending on Friday, July 13 and you can be sure that we will be there covering all the action.

Winnipeg Free Press: Pavs signed, now for the other items on Chevy’s to-do list. That is quite the list of things that require the attention of the Jets GM. Which is most important? Most would likely agree that getting Kane locked up is priority number one.


CBC: Time to free up NHL free agency + 30 Thoughts. Missed this always informative article by Elliotte Friedman yesterday. Item number 27 deals with the Pavelec signing but the entire piece is well worth reading.

General NHL news:

Globe and Mail: Talks on new NHL collective agreement to begin Friday. And here come the pretzels. The first volley in the war of words as the players wrap up meetings in Chi-town to learn what the strategy will be this summer.

Edmonton Journal: Oilers to make Krueger head coach. The Winnipeg-born coach is seeing his first action as a head coach in the NHL.

The Province: Pavel Bure first Canuck elected to Hockey Hall of Fame. Hard to believe he is the first player to be inducted from the Canucks. The Russian Rocket was a joy to watch skate. He was pure speed and skill on the ice.

SI.com: Coyotes captain Shane Doan will test free agency. He has only known one team for his entire career and despite making the Western Conference Finals this past season, will dip his toe in the free agency waters to evaluate his worth.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, June 28th Jets and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets to test prospects’ wings. The exciting thing for fans is they can pack the IcePlex and watch the next generation of Jets fans prepare to impress the team brass all next week.


Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele playing things right. The young gun prospect is doing and saying all the right things, which would seem to illustrate the high level of character this team sought when the drafted him. If he continues to develop and his talent level can match his character level, the Jets are going to have quite the special player.

Winnipeg Free Press: ‘Peg already feels like home for Scheifele. It has been a whirlwind year since he was drafted ‘off the board’ by the Jets. Fans have to like hearing the fact that he is putting on weight and already talking about Winnipeg like it is his home base.

Winnipeg Sun: Hockey world pulling for Baizley. Known as ‘The’ player agent from Winnipeg and representing some of the premier talent (i.e. Teemu Selanne, Saku Koivu, Peter Forsberg, Paul Kariya and Joe Sakic,) in the league throughout the years, he is in the battle for his life right now. For what it is worth, everyone at Illegal Curve wishes him the best.

General NHL news:

The Detroit News: Booze sales OK for NHL game at Michigan Stadium. The Governor stepped in and will allow the University of Michigan stadium to make alcohol sales at the game, which considering it will be attended by close to 110,000 people is probably a very, very good decision.

Globe and Mail: Schneider in no hurry to have contract situation resolved. Considering the potential labour strife, he might want to get something in writing soon.

CBC: Red Wings make push for free agent Justin Schultz. Would appear that the Wings and Oilers might be battling it out for this talented young defenceman.

Toronto Star: NHL and players agree on $70.2 million salary cap, formal talks to start Friday. As I’ve said previously, fans will not feel for either side in this fight. Only acceptable result is getting a deal done before September 15th, so they can focus on what is truly important, my birthday, which is also on the 15th.

Friday Papers

Friday, June 29th Jets and General NHL news

Jets news:

Michigan Tech University: Hockey draftees will report to school. Always interesting to read how the late draft picks find out about their selection. Sounds like Phillips is pumped about being property of the Jets.

Winnipeg Free Press: Chevy, Jets have money to spend. The Jets still have a number of free agents to sign so their cap space is likely to increase soon enough. However spending money for the sake of spending money on expensive free agents doesn’t guarantee success (see 2011-12 Buffalo Sabres, 4th highest payroll and no playoffs).

Winnipeg Free Press: Take a chance on Toots. He is looking to prove to folks in the NHL that he still has the drive to succeed in this league. The Jets need high level scoring talent, so would Tootoo be a good addition to the team? Or would he just fill a roll which the Jets could have filled by some of their younger talent in the AHL?


CBC: Arts groups survive the Jets. Looks like the return of the Jets didn’t force the city to divert all available disposable income towards the Jets as many “experts” from outside our city predicted.

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

AHL.com: 2011-12 excellence award winners. The IceCaps COO Glenn Stanford has been named the winner of the James C. Hendy Memorial Award as the outstanding executive in the American Hockey League for 2011-12. He had a huge task and was up to the challenge of handling the responsibilities.

General NHL news:

Los Angeles Daily News: Kings goalie Quick will ink 10-year contract extension. Signing a goalie to a long term deal always works out for the team…doesn't it?

Arizona Republic: Judge rules in favor of Glendale’s Phoenix Coyotes deal. Does anyone actually believe this is done? Of course not. Which will be settled first, the NHL and NHLPA agreeing to a new CBA or the Coyotes situation being resolved?

Philadelphia Inquirer: Parise to Pens would be Flyers’ worst nightmare. Adding Parise will add another dimension to the Battle of Pennsylvania.

Vancouver Sun: Canucks $12m deal nets Cory Schneider for three years. Despite concerns that others GMs would successfully thwart the Canucks plans, they got their tender of the future signed. Now what do they do with Roberto Luongo?

Boston Globe: Tuukka Rask agrees to one-year, $3.5 million extension. Playing it cautious in advance of next year’s negotiation.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, June 30th Jets news

Illegal Curve Hockey Show Programming Note:

Be sure to tune your radio to TSN Radio 1290, this morning, at 9:00 AM, for a special early start to The Illegal Curve Hockey Show. Drew, Richard and Ezra will have you covered with all the news you need to know about NHL Free Agency, which opens up the next day, on Canada Day, July 1.

Then, on Sunday, July 1, celebrate Canada by joining Illegal Curve as they broadcast a special edition of The Illegal Curve Hockey Show, live-on-location from the Winnipeg Free Press Café. Beginning at 9:00 AM on TSN Radio 1290 and winnipegfreepress.com, enjoy breakfast and Illegal Curve as the guys keep you abreast of the latest signings, trades and free agency maneuvers involving the Winnipeg Jets and the 29 other NHL teams during a special Free Agent Frenzy edition of The Illegal Curve Hockey Show.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Forget Parise. The Jets have said they are committed to a long term build. This wasn’t a disingenuous statement. Long term build through the draft means that when free agency is upon us, the Jets are looking at smaller pieces of the puzzle. Until this team is able to seriously challenge for a Cup, there is no point in acquiring high priced free agents.

Winnipeg Free Press: Dealing with a cold reality – Winnipeg a no-go zone. It is a reality that cannot be easily shrugged off. As someone who loves this city and all it has to offer, it is difficult to hear comments like these. Of course as Gary says, those players who experience the Peg’ have a different attitude than those who have just heard stories. End of the day, Winnipeg is not New York, L.A., Vancouver or even Toronto but most of us who live here choose to do so and that same attitude will hold for many NHL players as well.


Winnipeg Sun: Who backs up Pavelec? My bet is Alberta’s Chris Mason will be backing up Pavelec when the season starts. He clearly loves the city, was always engaging with the media and perhaps will be given a bigger role than he had last season.

Winnipeg Sun: Kane deserves more cash. When IC’s Richard Pollock did his market analysis of Kane’s value, he put him in a category with a James Neal or Phil Kessel. What type of money do you think he merits?

Winnipeg Sun: Free agent decisions to make. Seems unusual that the brass hasn’t signed any of these guys yet. Perhaps the focus is getting RFA Kane signed, but you would think they would want to secure some of these guys before Sunday.
