Week of November 26th - December 2nd: Sunday Papers

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

Note: Movember officially ended and the Illegal Curve team is pleased to say we raised $6,263.00. Our thanks to Dave, Ezra, Drew, #5 Mark Stuart, #44 Zach Bogosian and the other members of the team. Donations are still welcome all of December as we continue to support the increase of funds and awareness for Men’s health.

We had a lot of fun ending yesterday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show with an official shave-off event (You will be able to hear that audio as well as the entire show later today). Thanks to Movember co-chairs Jamie Hopkins who dropped off some Schick products for the shave-off and Jeff Palson who joined us on air to discuss the Movember Manitoba campaign.


Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Sun: Fan boycott a hard sell. In this city I would suggest it is an impossible sell. For anyone who would give up their seat, 100 fans would eagerly take his or her place inside the MTS Centre whenever play resumes.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets gear still flying off the shelves. As I’ve said since this lockout began, fans in this city are not planning on punishing this organization for a lockout that was set in motion before the franchise even had moved to Winnipeg. Walk around this city and you will see Jets gear on everyone, from little kids to parents.

Winnipeg Sun: Fans not going anywhere despite lockout. We saw evidence of this at the Goals for Dreams game, when 1700 hockey starved fans took in a scrimmage just to see some of their Jets in action.


CBC: IceCaps can’t catch Penguins. All good things must come to an end and despite pushing their win streak to 3 games for the first time this season, it all came to an end as they lost last night to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Reporter Herald: Idaho Steelheads keep Colorado Eagles reeling. Another road loss, and this was a drubbing as the Eagles got blown out Saturday 7-1.

CBA news:

Globe and Mail: NHLPA authorizes $10000 stipend for players as lockout drags on. For all the players who did not properly account for the ramifications of a lockout, the PA is smartly reducing their concerns, which will likely avoid any player speaking out as their bank accounts dwindle.

Toronto Sun: NHL lockout cold war continues as two sides exchange ideas. Gotta love how they cannot even agree to a meeting which is non-binding and is really just to get the conversation going again.

Tampa Bay.com: Lightning veterans don’t fault owner Jeff Vinik for lockout. Very tough for players to speak out about the owners who sign their pay cheques. Eventually that same individual will be responsible for paying them millions of dollars so being careful with what they say about their owners is not a surprise and why many have taken to lashing out at Commissioner Bettman.

ESPN: James Dolan wants to meet. With the amount of money the Rangers have spent to get MSG ready for the Rangers and with expectations that this team can challenge for the Stanley Cup, you can be sure that Dolan cannot be happy with the present state of affairs.

Monday Papers

Monday, November 26th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets & Affiliate news:

Jatkoai: Pavelec signs in Finland. Bear in mind this article comes to you via google translate, but it looks like the Jets netminder is off to Finland with a debut on Tuesday.

CBC: IceCaps goalie Pasquale earns shutout against Bruins. Well the Caps reversed their trend and won the 2nd game of the 2 game series. Pasquale with a very nice effort earning a shutout along the way. Both the power play and penalty kill clicked and while Alexander Burmistrov doesn’t get any points for his effort during the kill, it sure helped his team when they needed it.


Winnipeg Sun: Lockout causes tears in beer sales. What are Manitobans doing with all this money they have saved on beer?

CBA news:

FMCS: Statement by FMCS Director George H. Cohen on NHL Labor Talks. Finally some mediation. A little too little too late but perhaps better late than never.

Ottawa Sun: Daly hopes NHL labour talks resume this week. At least they are not waiting until the GM meetings next week which was speculated over the weekend.

USA Today: Lockout taking toll on Nashville businesses. The impact the lockout is having on businesses that depend on the game is huge.

Detroit Free Press: NHL season can still be salvaged. While there might still be a season, the likelihood is that we will not see Detroit or Chicago heading to Winnipeg this season as the games are likely to be “intra-conference matchups to cut down on travel and allow for more games”.

New York Times: Alfredsson trying to understand Owners’ strategy. Not difficult to understand….increase profits.

Montreal Gazette: Bettman becomes hockey’s worst enemy. Well we certainly know what side of the divide Jack Todd is on. If you are a member of the NHLPA you will be better off tweeting a link to this article instead of the usual anti-Bettman rants.

NHL news:

Edmonton Journal: Is the Edmonton Oilers’ Jordan Eberle the best sniper in the modern NHL? While it appears he is in the upper echelon, he has not quite hit the top spot just yet.

For the Jets, CBA and General NHL news click here.

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: The week in CBA negotiations. The NHLPA’s latest offer to the NHL. Interview with Paul Kelly, former Executive Director of the NHLPA. Recap of the interview with Paul Kelly. Evaluating the NHLPA’s latest offer. Roman Hamrlik’s comments and Erik Cole’s response.

Part 2: Interview with Michael McCann, Director of Sports Law Institute at Vermont Law School, Legal Analyst and Writer for Sports Illustrated. The NHLPA and decertification. Don Cherry rips the players. The state of negotiations update. NHL News & Notes. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. Well the 100th Grey Cup is all over with the hometown Argonauts winning in convincing fashion over the Calgary Stampeders and we have all the news from Toronto.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, November 27th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Sun: Hainsey cautiously optimistic about NHL mediation. The Jets team rep has been on the inside of negotiations pretty much the entire lockout so perhaps it is good news that he is feeling some optimism.


Hockey’s Futures: Scott Kosmachuk named OHL Player of the Week. The Jets 2012 3rd round pick finished the week with 8 points and a +6 rating.

Winnipeg Free Press: Pavs joins Finnish cellar-dweller. In case you missed the news yesterday, Pavelec is off to Finland for a 6 game stretch with the Pelicans.

The Telegram: IceCaps off the schneid… whatever that is. Can Coach McCambridge ensure that the 6-0 victory was more than just an anomaly?

Northern Colorado 5: Eagles Week In Review. Taking a look back at the week that was and ahead to what the Jets ECHL franchise can expect.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Mediation raises hope for NHL. Better late than never. While non-binding, hopefully they can get the two sides talking and more importantly compromising.

TSN: Crosby, Ovechkin weigh in on Hamrlik, lockout frustrations. Crosby is a bit more diplomatic than Ovechkin who doesn’t seem pleased with his teammates comments.

Edmonton Journal: Smyth remains hopeful as NHL, union agree to mediation. Captain Canada might not have much left in the tank but he hopes that he will still be able to get some games in this season.

Toronto Star: Labour talks mediator removed over Twitter postings. Gotta love that whenever something goes bad on social media the first declaration is “my account was hacked”. The guy had some bizarre tweets and probably should have been aware that he would come under scrutiny.

Daily Herald: NHL fate in Bettman’s hands, wallet. Just cannot see Bettman making a promise knowing he is going up against Donald Fehr.

NHL news:

CSN Philadelphia: How close was Doan to become a Flyer? Apparently close enough to get a mocked up Philadelphia jersey. Evan had option of two numbers.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, November 28th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. If you’d like to help the Illegal Curve team as we raise money ($4,769.00 as of this AM) and awareness you are welcome to do so; Dave, Ezra, Drew, #5 Mark Stuart and #44 Zach Bogosian.

Jets & Affiliate news:

CSN New England: Jacobs should be held responsible. Not sure what is worse, being told to be quiet at a meeting of your peers or being referenced as a NKOTB (new kid on the block). The story is that at a Board of Governors meeting a Jets representative was reprimanded and "put in the place" befitting someone newly arrived to the party by Bruins Principal Owner and Chairman of the Board of Governors Jeremy Jacobs.

Forbes: NHL team values. The claim is the Jets are worth 200 million. Since the books are not open to public scrutiny there is some guessing involved.

YLE Urhilu: Ondrej Pavelec drops first game 5-4. Pavs joined the Lahti Pelicans who are the 2nd worst team (13 out of 14) in the Finnish league and gave up 5 goals on 30 shots last night.


Winnipeg Sun: Inconsistent IceCaps stuck in a rut. About the only thing this team has done consistently is win 1 and then lose 1.

The Telegram: IceCaps winger leaves team for Germany. Look like they have too many cooks in the kitchen over on the East Coast.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles looking for better results on road. The team needs to learn how to win those close games on the road.

The Coloradoan: Colorado’s top line lighting up the ECHL. That is some significant firepower for the Jets affiliate as they have the 1, 2 and 3 guys in most offensive categories.

CBA news:

Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Lockout prompts Wild to cut employees’ pay by 20 percent. Pay cuts are never good but when the alternative is being let go, they are a necessary evil.

Globe and Mail: When is enough enough? I would have said it was enough 74 days ago but here we are.

Edmonton Journal: Owner and NHLPA mediation attempt will leave both sides in ruins. After all that Adler ‘optimism’ who is ready to watch some puck? Anyone? Anyone?

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: Frankly, Glendale, we don’t give a damn anymore. When will the drama ever end? I would suggest that there are still some places that care what happens in Arizona. (i.e. Seattle, Quebec City and Markham).

USA Today: Glendale council approves Phoenix Coyotes deal. Sports fans the deal has been approved. Now the ball is in Jamison’s court to finalize the purchase of the Coyotes.

Seattle Post Intelligencer: Seattle NHL target one step closer to staying put. The NHL is merely an extra bonus for this NBA town, but one that would help justify the arena expense.

Thursday, November 29th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Last night was the Movember Winnipeg Gala Party at The Pyramid. Great times were had by everyone in attendance and even more importantly they continue to raise money and awareness.

Jets & Affiliate news:

CBC: Elliotte Friedman’s 30 Thoughts. Always a good read from Friedman. #3 and #18 are Jets related and 18 will have Jets fans breathing a sigh of relief.

Province of Manitoba: Province launches After School Network with Jets True North Foundation as flagship partner. A bit of positive news during all the lockout nonsense.

Winnipeg Free Press: Reprimand ‘fabrication’ denied by Jets, NHL. Not surprisingly both the Jets and NHL have denied the veracity of the story and once again the reporter is standing by his story. Here is the Jets official response:

Quote:
Mark Chipman, Chairman and Governor of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club, issued the following statement on behalf of True North Sports & Entertainment Limited regarding the report from Comcast Sportsnet New England:

“I was disappointed to learn today of a report which claimed an exchange took place between an Alternate Governor of the Winnipeg Jets and Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting. I was present throughout all BOG proceedings and can categorically state that no such exchange between Mr. Jacobs and either one of our Alternate Governors – Patrick Phillips or Kevin Cheveldayoff – ever took place. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false.”
Winnipeg Sun: Forbes pegs Jets value at $200 million. While the actual numbers can be debated, it is clear that some teams can continue to succeed in their market while others will continue to struggle.

Winnipeg Free Press: Ladd welcomes addition of mediators to bargaining. Something different is better than nothing at this point but nobody seems to be holding their breath that this method will lead to a breakthrough.

TSN: Pasquale solid in IceCaps’ win over Phantoms. Two wins in a row for St. John’s!! I wonder if they can stretch this streak to 3 games. Next game is Friday night in Albany.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles lose late again. When you lose one of the best defenceman in the ECHL, you can expect to be behind the 8 ball and the Steelheads scored a 4-3 victory.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles forward Kyle Ostrow has speed to burn. Another one of those ECHL young guns to be aware of.

CBA news:

TSN: NHL, NHLPA make no progress after talks with mediators. Just terrific.

The Detroit Free Press: NHL deal might be near, but not lasting. The biggest mistake either side can make it not to ensure that this CBA is long lasting. Fans do not want to have to deal with renegotiation anytime soon.

Globe and Mail: NHL lockout ignores the golden goose. This time around things might be vastly different when and if the game returns this season.

NHL news:

CBC: Wild goalie Josh Harding diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. A real shame whenever you hear someone is diagnosed with something of this nature but hopefully for the Regina native he will be able to persevere.

Arizona Republic: Making the winning choice. Folks in Glendale are hoping short term pain can lead to long term gain.

Today is the last “official” day of Movember. Hopefully we have helped to raise some awareness of the issue of prostate cancer and men’s mental health. Remember to not take your health for granted. We are going to have a “shave off” on tomorrow’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290. Tune in from noon to 2:45 pm and listen as we discuss our Movember memories.

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Sun: Prospect Kosmachuk takes Guelph by storm. He has been streaky throughout his career and while he attempts to develop more consistency, he is also trying to enhance other parts of his game.

Winnipeg Sun: Manitoba government, Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation team up. While the lockout is curtailing some of the positives we see during Jets games, at least the Province and TN Foundation were able to figure out a way to team up and help out our community.

The Telegram: Sides becomes Icecaps' first call-up this season. He was good for a point per game in the ECHL.

The Coloradoan: Eagles scoring show needs to hit the road. This team can score goals but for whatever reason they just are not getting this done on the road.

CBA news:

Toronto Star: Fans leave money with NHL teams. I suspect that fans do not want to go through the hassle of requesting a refund, then receiving the money, inevitably spending that money on something else and then having to come up with additional funds when the game inevitably returns.

ESPN: Where do CBA negotiations go as mediation fails? LeBrun is still maintaining a sliver of optimism for the season and see’s the NHL offer to remove Bettman and Fehr as a viable one.

Globe and Mail: As mediation fails, NHL suggests a meeting between owners and players. An idea just radical enough to work. There are still plenty of owners and players who have excellent relationships to try and make this happen. Could this be the secret ingredient that has been missing from the mix?

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: Contraction a necessary evil for survival of NHL says economist. Will never happen. Neither the NHL (prestige/pride/etc.) and NHLPA (jobs) want to see the loss of any teams. Relocation is a lot more likely.

USA Today: Clippers, Angels, Kings PA announcer David Courtney dies. A sad loss for the LA teams. He had been with the Kings since 1971.

I heard someone mention yesterday if they lock the owners and players "only" in a room when the day is done the owners will probably offer Kevin Westgarth a 10 year $100 million dollar contract

Saturday Papers

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

Note: Movember is officially over and the Illegal Curve team is pleased to say we raised $6,263.00 as of this AM, our biggest single day increase ($886.00). Our thanks to Dave, Ezra, Drew, #5 Mark Stuart, #44 Zach Bogosian and the other members of the team. Donations are welcome all of December as we continue to support the increase of funds and awareness for Men’s health.

Note II: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 from noon to 2:45 pm today. We will be celerbating the end of a long month of Movember with a live shave off of our mustaches on air (video will likely make its way to Illegal Curve.com). We also have plenty of hockey related talk. Guests: Frank Seravelli (Philadelphia Daily news), Craig Button (TSN) and Jeff Citron (Partner at Goodmans, former Associate council of the NHLPA, 1995-2000)

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Career interrupted. The Jets have to hope that Kane will be ready to go and that the kick at the can in the KHL was just an anomaly.

Winnipeg Free Press: Couldn’t find the net, fathom ‘nyet’. Good for Ed to ask Evander about his KHL experience. Clearly he never took to the style of play over in Russia. Finished with 12 games, 1 goal and a minus 8.

Winnipeg Free Press: Players, owners shooting breeze the answer? While I agree it is not an even playing field perhaps to change the nature of the conversation it isn’t such a bad idea.

Illegal Curve: The Winnipeg Jets and Winnipeg Free Press are pleased to offer “The First Season”. Free Press reporter Randy Turner continues to churn out some excellent books and this looks like it is another must buy.

The Telegram: IceCaps, Pasquale win again. Don’t look now but St. John’s is on a winning streak as they pulled off their 3rd victory in a row last night in Albany. Also appears that Edward Pasquale is taking the role of #1 net minder.

The Hockey Writers: Can OHL scoring forecast success for Jets Scheifele? In the end we won’t know the answer for another 5 years, at which point we can look back and say yes this was a good move, or no it was a terrible selection. While looking at historical trends can sometimes give an indication there is no guarantee of success or lack thereof.


Reporter Herald: Idaho goalie Robinson shines against Eagles. Once again this Colorado squad showed an inability to win on the road as they ran into a hot goalie in Boise.

CBA news:

USA Today: NHLPA must decide if decertification is worth risk? Can you say goodbye to the season?

ESPN: However lockout ends, Bettman must go. Rogers has had enough of the ‘my way’ or the highway approach that is often attributed to Commissioner Bettman.

Montreal Gazette: Martin Brodeur slogging through his fourth work stoppage. That is a lot of lost money and time for the future hall of famer.
