Week of August 20th-27th - Sunday Papers

Sunday, August 26th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Anybody’s guess what it’ll cost Jets to keep Evander Kane. Ken is very right in pointing out that contract negotiations can take a long time and similar to Bogosian not signing until a few days before camp last season, hardly indicate a player wants out. As to term, we’ve removed the guesswork as our own Richard Pollock broke down the numbers and attempted to establish Kane’s market value back in January.


CBA news:

New York Post: Betting on a deal. Thank you Henrik Lundqvist for telling us that “it’s going to be good to go when it’s time to go”. Consider my mind blown.

Toronto Sun: A hockey fan’s guide to the NHL lockout. A must read guide to the lockout. Often times terms and people are thrown around and it is assumed that fans know exactly what is going on. This will help you get through the process.

Montreal Gazette: The fans, the players, and the disparity in NHL contract talks. While a letter to the editor isn’t usually put in the same spot as articles, Mr. Bender eloquently writes what many hockey fans from across North America are thinking/feeling.

Washington Post: KHL’s Dynamo would try to sign Alex Ovechkin in event of lockout. Not a surprise that the KHL will see this as an opportunity to gain some star power for their league.

NHL news:

Boston Globe: Tyler Seguin expected to get extension from Bruins. Hopefully with all that new cash he can afford a clock that will wake him up in the central time zone.

Buffalo News: Uncertainty disrupts Regier’s business plan. Like many teams, the Sabres are having to treat water while they wait to see what will happen in September. After last season began with so much promise, you can bet that the brass in Western New York State are hoping to have a much different 2012-13.

Monday Papers

Monday, August 20th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Business soars thanks to Jets suite. Jets games are not just an opportunity to go watch your favourite NHL team play. Many businesses use the games, whether it is in a suite or with regular season tickets, as an opportunity to sell themselves to their clients, or reward clients for their support with tickets.


CBA news:

Pioneer Press: NHL lockout talk is bad timing for Wild. What was looking like a season of ‘Minnesota Nice’ could turn into some serious ‘Minnesota Ice’, but not of the variety that players skate on, unfortunately. Regardless of when the season begins, folks in Minnesota are going to have a lot of fun for years to come with this up and coming team.

Edmonton Journal: How would an NHL lockout impact a young team like the Edmonton. Just what the rest of the league needs, these young gun Oilers having an opportunity to continue to develop.

Montreal Gazette: Gary Bettman’s labour of love. The tide appears to have turned on the NHL Commissioner who is taking it on the cheek during the most recent CBA negotiations.

Toronto Sun: NHL labour talks? Don’t know. Don’t care. Are you reading as much CBA news as you possibly can or has it already become a “wake me up when its over” type of situation?

NHL news:

San Jose Mercury News: As NHL bargaining heats up, a closer look at Sharks ownership group. Informative read on the Sharks ownership group.

Detroit Free Press: Niklas Kronwall must elevate his game. As Kramer once warned Jerry, “understudies are a very shifty bunch”, but in this instance, it looks like Kronwall should be ready to be the center of attention. I watched a lot of Wings games live and the expression “being Kronwalled” is something many opposition players learn they had best avoid.

Waterloo Record: Underhill works with Leaf prospects. Always interesting to read about the different methods teams use, both conventional and unconventional, to help develop their young players.

Globe and Mail: Markham arena developer defends economic model. This arena project continues to move forward despite the skepticism of many that without an NHL tenant, it is not a viable option.

Part 2: Interview with Bobby Holik of HolikOnHockey.com. Discussion on the remaining Unrestricted Free Agents. Off ice issues. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, August 21st Jets, ECHL, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Jets official site: Aiming higher in second season. Includes a video of E.J. Hradek giving his assessment of last season and what might be expected this upcoming year. He doesn't expect the Jets to get over the playoff line in the short term.

Winnipeg Free Press: Think-tank – spread it around, NHL. Not a surprising position to take. As an aside, I would like to know where all the experts are from last season who claimed to know that Winnipeg couldn’t be a money maker.


ECHL Affiliate news – Colorado Eagles:

Northern Colorado: Eagles bringing two goalie prospects to camp. Looks like the Eagles have found two very nice goalie prospects for their camp.

CBA news:

Dallas Morning News: If players’ strategy is small changes to current system, they have to be prepared to outwait owners. While many players are millionaires, it would be difficult to outlast billionaires. Will the players blink first?

Globe and Mail: NHL Stickhandles through a new media world. Great read on the new reality of life for the NHL and the players. Fans have a lot more of a voice than they ever have before.

The Province: Money is only language NHL owners understand. Like the old Abba song ‘Money, money, money, Always sunny, In the rich man’s world”. The power of the green is what motivates the owners.

Sportsnet: Panthers cancel rookie camp. We will be seeing a lot more of this in the coming weeks.

Edmonton Journal: Winter Classic may play a role in possible NHL lockout. You can afford to lose the All-Star game but no chance the league wants to chance losing the Winter Classic.

Washington Post: Labor dispute may be ‘worse than you think it is’. A statement fans never want to hear.

NHL news:

FS Detroit: Red Wings, Kings engage in minor twitter war. Reminds me of the time Patrick Roy and Jeremy Roenick got into it. Love that the Kings twitter is not bland.

Delaware County Times: Hartnell happy to carry on with Flyers. He is the face of the franchise and is a great leader on the team. Good for the Flyers to lock him up long term.

Ottawa Citizen: Stop changing rules in the NHL. Humans love to tinker and the NHL continues to play with the rules in hoping of perfecting the game.

Toronto Star: Markham arena partner casts doubt on project’s viability. When trying to put a project of this size together a united front is needed to project that image of the strength of your idea. If one of the guys on the inside is casting doubt about the viability, it bears noting.

USA Today: Veteran Mike Fisher signs two-year extension with Predators. His wife must sure be happy that they will be in ‘Music City’ for another couple of seasons.

Other hockey news:

Waterloo Record: Junior hockey players forming union. Some interesting ideas from this fledgling and not yet born entity. Do you like the idea of a Union for Jr. players?

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.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, August 22nd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Hockey’s Future: Lukas Sutter carries on the family line of work. Hockey, like horse racing, can sometimes pick a winner based on the bloodlines and in this instance, the Jets feel like they have made a solid pick with their 2nd round choice. He is right in that fans will be happy to hear that he and the Jets number 1 pick in the 2011 Entry Draft, Mark Scheifele, have developed some chemistry.


Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

AHL.com: Caps agree to terms with Kaunisto. Perhaps the Jets Chris Thorburn, a fellow Sault Ste. Marie resident, convinced him to sign with the organization.

AHL.com: Wolves sign Negrin. The Jets got Negrin as part of the Akim Aliu trade last season.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Time for NHL fans to tune in for the sounds of bargaining. Fans would be naive to believe that they will be the beneficiaries of this process. Despite the fact that they drive this vehicle with their attendance, this is simply between the players and owners and whom will get a bigger share of the pie. A pie produced by the fans of course.

The Tennessean: Predators are optimistic NHL can avoid lockout. Can any small market team in a non-traditional market afford a lockout? Not in actual cost, but in the loss of fan support.

New York Post: Restart in NHL faceoff. We are under a month till the CBA expires and you get the feeling neither side is any closer to a deal than they were when they first started this process.

The Province: Winter Classic, $200m NBC deal at risk as CBA talks stall. Which is why most observers feel the NHL has a position of strength until such time as the above game is in jeopardy.

ESPN: NHL labor talks to continue. The talks re-start today.

Other hockey news:

National Post: Junior hockey’s union plan looks shaky. The CHL could remove this dilemma if they change the post playing career education funds for players. With just 2% of CHLers making it to the NHL, this isn’t such a bad idea.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, August 23rd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Team 1040 Sports Radio: Evander Kane audio interview. Evander appeared on the BMac and Taylor show to discuss a range of topics (interview starts at approximately the 10 minute mark) including the current status of the CBA, last season with the Winnipeg Jets and ends the interview with a brief response (not revealing anything) regarding the current status of his contract negotiations.

Winnipeg Sun: Jaffray sticking with IceCaps — and maybe Jets? A solid utility player who can be called upon if needed. Hopefully he can have an injury free 2012-13 season.


CBA news:

Boston Herald: Bruins hold out hope for deal. For now the players stand united. Will that remain once the money stops flowing and the lower tier players start needing that income source.

National Post: NHL, players seem to lack urgency in labour talks. The September 15th date continues to creep up on us. While normally I wouldn’t mind this as it is my birthday, I think I may be overshadowed this year.

Ottawa Citizen: Little talk so far, but here’s what matters. Meetings were cancelled on Wednesday afternoon and that is probably not a good thing.

NHL.com: Top CBA negotiators meet, set stage for Thursday. The focus on Thursday will be “core economic issues, as well as some systematic issues” according to Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

NHL news:

Phoenix Business Journal: Key dates approaching for Phoenix Coyotes in sale process. Interesting to note that the new Mayoral candidates are anti-Yotes, so it appears that potential owner Jamison has until January 8th, 2013 (when new council gets sworn in) to get a deal done.

Edmonton Journal: Oilers lock up Taylor Hall with seven-year, $42-million contract. The leader of the next crop of Oilers young guns, they have locked him up.

Edmonton Journal: Oilers prospect Yakupov fighting leg infection after tumbling off treadmill. Speaking of Oilers prospects, it appears they had a scare with the 1st overall pick in the 2012 Entry Draft.

Toronto Sun: Doan deal? The amount of money being thrown at Doan is almost comical. Clearly this speaks to his loyalty to the Coyotes as he could have abandoned ship and been well compensated long ago.

Friday Papers

Friday, August 24th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Don't forget to tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 for two hours of hockey talk from 9 to 11 am tomorrow.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets, Bombers plates hot items for thieves. Cannot say I am overly surprised. It was/is a status symbol to steal a Jaguar or BMW logo off a car and now in the Peg' it appears that sports licence plates has joined this list of items to pilfer.

Winnipeg Free Press: Kroppy is the King of Kenora. He always received a roar whenever he was featured on the jumbotron at the MTS Centre.


Dmitry Chesnokov: Good Deeds. Here is an interesting read from Dmitry Chesnokov who usually writes for yahoo.com and has a close connection to the NHL’s Russian players, about Red Wings great Pavel Datsyuk helping out a young Alexander Burmistrov.

Jets official Site: Remaining Optimistic. If you missed the Evander Kane audio we posted yesterday morning or are unable to listen to audio at work or in the car, Kristi has put together a lot of the quotes from the Jets sniper.

CBA news:

Overtime: Why limiting term is a bad idea. Can the NHL afford to lose creativity? Our own Richard Pollock with some great insight on why the NHL won't want to go the same route as the NBA. Or perhaps he is worried that if it can happen in the NHL, perhaps it could happen on IC and we might try and limit his term.

Arizona Republic: CBA dealings add new wrinkle to Phoenix Coyotes’ Shane Doan. While Greg Jamison might have until January (before the new council takes office), it appears that the team only has until September 14th to get a deal done with their captain.

National Post: Gary Bettman is out to make amends for NHL owners. You cannot really fault Bettman for wanting to fix things that he see’s as broken. His position is to steer the ship and to do so in a manner consistent with how his 30 owners want him to. He will do whatever it takes to please those he reports to as would most employees.

New York Daily News: NHL and players still far apart on core CBA issues. If anything these negotiations should be remembered for the snails pace at which they have moved along. NHL proposal July 13th with an NHLPA counter-proposal on August 14th and a CBA deadline on September 15th. At this pace we should be back on schedule October 16th. Perhaps we will have a new IC Contest; If there is a lockout, guess when the lockout will end.

Globe and Mail: Bettman’s gaffe implies fans are mere doormats. Based on our poll it would appear fans are with neither the players nor the owners.

Toronto Sun: No alternate schedule in works yet. Unfortunately for Jets fans they better hope they don’t lose October as that is when both the Chicago Blackhawks (16th) and Detroit Red Wings (27th) come to town for their only visits of the season.

NHL news:

New York Times: Based on donations, N.H.L.’s American owners prefer Republican candidates. Jeff Klein with some interesting, although not terribly surprising numbers for the NHL owners and how they choose to donate.

thescore: 15 Years Gone – Remembering the Hartford Whalers. Count me as someone who still has nostalgia for the garish green jerseys the Whalers used to wear.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, August 25th 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 an action packed 2 hours of hockey talk. Today’s guests is Ryan Rishaug (TSN Edmonton).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets return sees no sign of crashing. Well I’m not sure what I will be doing in 2035, but I’m glad to know that I will still be able to watch the Jets play and that Illegal Curve should be still providing the most up-to-date Jets coverage around.

Winnipeg Sun: Kane agent shoots down trade rumour. Will the rumours never cease? It is interesting to see reporters use their ‘reporting capital’ to go out on a limb and report a rumour of this nature. But since this feels like the 50th time this has been done regarding Kane and Winnipeg, we can just add it to the list (see below).

Yahoo’s Puck Daddy: Brief history of Evander Kane trade request denials. That is one long list, albeit compiled in a short period of time.

ESPN: Uni Watch Power Rankings. The Jets jersey was seen as middle of the road in the NHL rankings and got lost within the 4 sports leagues (72nd out of 122). Is this merited? If you recall (IC: Reactions to the Jets jersey with Reebok designer Dominique Fillion) the Jets only had a short window of time in which to design and put together a new jersey. Where would you rank the Jets out of the 30 teams in the NHL?


CBA news:

Edmonton Journal: Five burning questions surrounding NHL labour talks. Unfortunately we might not ever get straight answers but these are some important questions to be asking.

National Post: ‘Players aren’t afraid of a lockout,’ Donald Fehr says. Is this headline best summed up as “say the complete opposite of what you are really thinking”? Of course the players fear a lockout. A short term blip might be passable but anything that goes long, and I think you will start to see some division in this unity.

Montreal Gazette: NHL bargaining – Elusive magic number. It really seems like bargaining 101. Get some numbers, meet in the middle where nobody is happy. That’s how you know you’ve reached a compromise as neither side feels as if they’ve won.

Toronto Star: Owners daft to think US fans will miss NHL. The NHL popularity seems to be at an all-time high in the United States, but is that sufficient to prevent the league from trying to fix the breaks in the system, even if that means a stoppage? Devotion to maintaining US popularity doesn’t appear to be impacting Bettman & company just yet.

SI.com: A 2004-05 NHL lockout timeline -then and now. How is it that we are just 8 years removed from the previous lockout. Have you picked up on any similarities or differences this time around?
