Week of August 28th-September 2nd - Sunday Papers

Sunday, September 2nd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo a no-go for 4-6 months. In case you missed the news yesterday, the Jets will be without the services of Bogoisan for quite some time this year.

CBA news:

Toronto Sun: NHL trade, contract talks on hold. With so much uncertainly it seems most teams are happy to stand pat until more is known about the status of the CBA.

Edmonton Journal: It’s time for players to cut a deal and let NHL owners run their own businesses. Adler makes some very good points in his latest piece.


Los Angeles Times: NHL good at getting labor negotiations wrong. The NHL could be reaching unprecedented heights in the U.S. but is rolling the dice that a lockout won’t adversely impact the recent success.

The Hockey News: Total parity not the best solution for NHL. Would you prefer the NHL have more parity like the NFL or is the current system working?

NHL news:

NHL.com: Messier supports Bronx hockey complex proposal. Always good to see development of these types of venues in major population centers.

Detroit Free Press: Wings’ focal point – D Brendan Smith. The Wings lost a lot of defence this off season. Not only do you need to replace one of the greatest defenceman ever, but also a solid guy like Brad Stuart.

Illegal Procedure: Winnipeg Blue Bombers Papers. If you are a fan of CFL football, check out our other site, which gives you all the latest Bombers news as well as their next opponent (Saskatchewan Roughriders) and links from around the CFL.

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?

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: CBA negotiations update. CBA negotiations discussion continued. Winners and losers of the off-season (Southeast Division & Atlantic Division). Winners and losers of the off-season (Northeast Division & Central Division).

Part 2: Winners and losers of the offseason continued. Addressing the (continuous) Evander Kane trade rumors. Interview with Ryan Rishaug of TSN Edmonton. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, August 28th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Jets official site: Producing Postma. The Jets can certainly use some points from the blue line. Will he be able to crack a regular spot in the lineup this season?

CBA news:

National Post: The state of the standoff in the NHL. This could be the most critical week of negotiations between the two sides.

National Post: Winners and losers of the NHL off-season. Sean McIndoe is always good for a laugh, which is nice considering where the NHL and NHLPA appear to be headed.

New York Post: NHL, union to resume talks. One word; urgency. Neither side is acting like time is running out but they should be. Instead of acknowledging that they have under 3 weeks to resolve this battle, both sides should negotiate like tomorrow is the last day. Wouldn’t kill either side to spend 12-15 hours negotiating, instead of these 2 hour “marathon” sessions.

SI.com: Ex-NHLPA boss Goodenow may be proved right. This idea that ownership was concerned about the fans paying too much is laughable, especially when you see the rise in prices. Unfortunately for Goodenow, his union didn’t stay strong in the face of the owners resolve. Wonder if he knew back in 2004 that the Jets would return?


NHL news:

Arizona Republic: Glendale, NHL extend Phoenix Coyotes arena agreement for fourth time. Nothing terribly new with this latest piece of news. They’ve simply renewed the lease for another month. Clearly the NHL doesn’t have time to micro-manage Phoenix with all their focus on the CBA talks but how much longer can this continue?

Edmonton Journal: Can Justin Schultz possibly live up to the hype? As the Public Enemy song suggests “Don’t believe the hype”. This kid had at least a dozen teams after him and while he should be pretty good as he continues to develop, is it a bit too much to expect him to be able to make an immediate impact.

Vancouver Sun: New Lack deal adds intrigue between the pipes. Looks like Lack will be a big piece of the Canucks AHL puzzle this season, with expectations that he will be up with the big club in Year 2 of the deal.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, August 29th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Sportsnet: Breakout players for the Jets. The Jets will be looking to their new found size and the continued development of players like Bogosian as this team attempts to become a contender.

Winnipeg Free Press: Taking stock of division. The Hurricanes have made the biggest improvements this offseason and were the talk of the division. The Jets made some solid but not jaw dropping moves which sticks with the build long-term mantra. How they will do this season is anyone’s guess but the Southeast Division is not a walk in the park like it once was.


Jets official Site: Producing Postma. A lot is expected of the young blueliner as he tries to make the jump from the AHL to the NHL next season.

Illegal Curve: Top 10 Jets home games. Ezra and I broke down the 2012-13 season and picked our top 10 Jets games to see. What are yours?

CBA news:

Edmonton Journal: Insider details of NHL’s new offer to NHLPA. Should the players be happy? They likely should be, but that does not mean we won’t be seeing a counteroffer from Donald Fehr. He won’t want to be seen as too eager to accept the NHL deal, regardless of whether is it fair or not.

TSN: New NHL proposal reduces financial demands. Back to bargaining 101, ask for the moon in your first proposal, dial it back in your second and then wait.

Philadelphia Inquirer: Would a lockout be dangerous? It isn’t that core hockey fans/markets will not come back to the NHL. They will grumble, shake their fists in the air and then resign themselves to return to the game they love. The catch-22 of the lockout is that it is done to help the teams that are struggling (or so the league claims) but those same teams will lose any momentum as their casual fan base turns to other sports with their entertainment dollars for next year, and possibly longer.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Penguins alums recall the stress of lockout in 1994-95. It is much more likely that we are in 1994-95 territory this time around and not 2004-05 which is slightly better news for fans.

NHL news:

Toronto Sun: Fred Brathwaite wants one last chance. Old goalies appear to be coming out of the woodwork to re-start their NHL careers. The 39 year old Brathwaite attempts to revive a career that has not seen NHL action since 2004 with Columbus.

Washington Times: Jeff Halpern preparing despite NHL CBA uncertainty. For a veteran like Halpern he cannot afford to take time off before the season begins. He has to continue his training regiment as he knows there are always guys who are younger looking to pick off a veteran who losses a step.

FS West: Boudreau ready for first full season in Anaheim. The coach with one of the quickest coaching turnarounds in the history of the NHL was able to get something started well with the Ducks last season, despite falling short of the playoffs.

Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area: Arena ‘conversation’ starts in Virginia Beach. While this is likely a play for an NBA team, an NHL team always seems to get mentioned when a new arena project is unveiled, despite the fact that in this instance, there is a 0.0% chance the NHL will head to Virginia.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, August 30th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Congrats to @mattleibl, @icdrew and yours truly @icdave on a well deserved victory in last night’s WJMBL slow pitch finals. The House swept to victory for their first title. Chances are if you listened to the Big Show with Jay Richardson and Troy Westwood on TSN Radio 1290 this morning, you heard Matt Leibl describing in great detail the road to the championship.


Jets news:

Jets official site: Jets announce national broadcast schedule. A lot of good games will be featured next season....we hope.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets skaters preparing to play hockey, wherever that may be. Lots of different options for the various guys on the team. Both Antropov and Scheifele are hoping to start their seasons at the MTS Centre but know that they could just as easily be elsewhere.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets rep Hainsey finds bargaining process fascinating. Seems like a lot of buzzwords and cliches being thrown around. Hainsey does come across as a bit cerebral so it is not surprising that he is interested in the collective bargaining process.

Sportsnet: Breakout players for the Jets. The Jets will be looking to their new found size and the continued development of players like Bogosian as this team attempts to become a contender.


CBA news:

News and Observer: Lockout timeline coming into focus. The second deadline is a lot more concerning for the NHL than the first one.

Toronto Sun: Talks have young NHLers hopeful. Unfortunately the lack of urgency still shows that neither side is terribly serious about getting something done by September 15th.

The Province: Players brought some of this on themselves. Fans are certainly not crying for millionaire players who are hoping to maintain a style of living most could only wish for.

Sportsnet: Big man in the boardroom. What he lacks in stature he more than makes up for with the most important part of your body, your brain. Taking him lightly for any reason is done at your own peril.

National Post: Players plan to make CBA counter-offer by end of week. Is anyone surprised at this point that the players refuse to concede that the offer from the owners was “meaningful”? Of course the NHL is hoping that public opinion which seems neutral will, once again, turn on the players as fans will interpret this latest move for greed.

Pittsburgh Tribune: Malkin, others make plans for NHL lockout. Cannot fault the players for making alternative plans in case the CBA deal does not get done.

NHL news:

USA Today: Coyotes sale stalled by Glendale, lockout threat. At this point I refuse to be surprised. About the only thing that might shock me is when I read the headline “Coyotes deal done”.

Friday Papers

Friday, August 31st Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo going under knife. On one hand you don’t want to see a lockout, but the absence of a defenceman like Bogosian even for a few months could put the Jets behind the ball significantly. For the full Jets press release, click here.

Winnipeg Sun: Jokinen talks lockout. You like to hear as a Manitoban that Jokinen already feels at home in our province. At the same time, you won’t like hearing the hard line stance it appears he is taking regarding the negotiations.

CBC: Winnipeg Jets season opener airing on CBC. As has been the theme around here lately, this only happens if we have labour peace by mid September, which looks less and less likely as the days go by. The television broadcasters, True North and fans themselves all would like to see the MTS Centre looking like this instead of the alternative for the home opener.


Puck Daddy: Atlanta Thrashers and Winnipeg Jets (1.0) Edition. Our own Drew Mindell (@icdrew) was asked to contribute to Puck Daddy’s “The Essentials for their franchises”, which covers everything from the defining player and trade, to the indispensable fan traditions.

CBA news:

Philadelphia Daily News: How labor changes hurt Flyers. We start to see how top tier (and earning) team won’t like having to concede to changes that will individually impact them negatively.

MLive.com: Red Wings players not impressed with NHL‘s latest labor proposal. Tell us how you really feel Dan Cleary. Not a surprising move by the players. They are clearly concerned that fans will adopt the NHL line that this offer was “meaningful” and popular sentiment (which isn’t with the players anyways) will further turn on them.

Toronto Sun: NHL, NHLPA to meet Friday. Here’s an idea; Meet for 45 minutes and then decide to re-convene after the long weekend. That will go over really well with fans.

CBC: NHL proposals to change revenue formula would be significant. Elliotte Friedman injects the idea that the true date to watch is October 11th, not September 15th. As per usual an interesting read.

NHL news:

Detroit Free Press: Red Wings ranked the 3rd-smartest spender in pro sports. Out of the 122 sports teams it is not a surprise that the Wings continue to rank as high as they do. GM Ken Holland and company have been doing things the right way for two decades now.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Crosby ready to play, even if NHL isn’t. Great news for the league that the Pens superstar is feeling great and is eager to play.

Edmonton Journal: Oilers lock up key young performers. Does anyone get a sense of 1980s déjà vu? Young, talented Oilers team just getting ready to fly as the Jets head over to the Western Conference in 2013-14.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, September 1st Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 from 9-11 am today as the guys have the final action packed 2 hours of hockey talk before we revert to the fall/winter 3 hour schedule and our usual noon to 3 pm time slot. Today’s guest is Bruce Dowbiggin (Globe and Mail).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Bogosian expected to be out four to six months. Perhaps a lockout wouldn’t be such a bad thing after all. Without Bogosian in the lineup for this timeline the Jets are going to have to rely on someone else, perhaps Paul Postma, to step up and fill his role. To read the official Jets statement on the surgery click here.


Puck Daddy: Atlanta Thrashers and Winnipeg Jets (1.0) Edition. Our own Drew Mindell (@icdrew) was asked to contribute to Puck Daddy’s “The Essentials for their franchises”, which covers everything from the defining player and trade, to the indispensable fan traditions.

CBA news:

USA Today: Labor talks break off two weeks before deadline. Shall be interesting to see what the next round of talks bring.

ESPN: Stop fighting battle of right or wrong. There really is no good vs. evil in this fight. Appears to the average fan that it is greed vs. greed under the guise of cost certainty vs. livelihood.

SI.com: Lockout seems all but certain. After the disappointing lack of urgency this past week it seems all but inevitable that the pre-season games will be lost. Hopefully the NHL and NHLPA have some marathon sessions next week but that seems unlikely.

CBC: NHL vs. NHLPA: Fans react on Twitter to Friday’s talks. Not surprisingly the fans are taking to the twitter and unleashing their wrath on both the NHL and the NHLPA.

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: NHLers are not players, they’re entertainers. A good read ahead of Bruce Dowbiggin’s appearance on today’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290.

The Tennessean: Predators lose charter airline flights for season. Will the Preds be busing it around North America? Would be more cost effective. Based on the current CBA negotiations, I don’t suspect there is any urgency to getting this resolved before September 15th.

Toronto Star: Which NHL team had the best summer? Not a good spot if you are a Jets fan.

CFL Report:

Illegal Procedure: Winnipeg Blue Bombers Papers. If you are a fan of CFL football, check out our other site, which gives you all the latest Bombers news as well as their next opponent (Saskatchewan Roughriders) and links from around the CFL.
