Week of August 13th-19th - Sunday Papers

Sunday, August 19th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Illegal Curve: Yesterday’s news. While it appears the writers are taking a day off, there were a lot of Jets links in yesterday’s news in case you missed anything.


CBA news:

Columbus Dispatch: A lengthy lockout could cost Columbus All-Star game. As if Columbus hasn’t had enough to deal with, they could miss out on an opportunity to showcase their city.

New York Post: Can’t Bett’ on honesty. Honesty in collective bargaining? Perish the thought.

Chicago Tribune: Players ‘interested, focused and sober’ over contract talks. Fehr is trying to ensure that he has his players unified behind his plan. And based on what former Devils star Bobby Holik said on yesterday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 (listen below), it would seem like the players have a lot of confidence in Fehr.

NHL news:

Kenora Daily Minor and News: Kenora’s King, Mike Richards brings Stanley Cup home. It appears the entire town of Kenora turned out to see their favoured son return home with some impressive hardware.

Detroit Free Press: Wings’ chances for success healthier with a healthy Helm. Helm has blazing speed and it appears the St. Andrews, Manitoba product is becoming more important for the Winged Wheel.

TSN: Islanders say Visnovsky uninjured after auto accident. Good to hear that he is well.

Monday Papers

Monday, August 13th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

No news

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

The Telegram: No plans for IceCaps to play games in Winnipeg if NHL lockout occurs. There was speculation that the Caps might plays games in the Peg’ but this puts that to rest. But if no Jets and no IceCaps, this might be a pretty empty arena.


CBA news:

New York Times: A clause that could salvage the Winter Classic. Not very surprising that Bettman & Company would plan for any and all consequences that would impact that 2012-13 season.

USA Today: Discipline another issue in labor talks. The players will likely outline how they would like to see the process work more fairly this week.

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: Intro, CBA Discussions. Jeff Skinner signs contract extension with the Carolina Hurricanes. Interview with Frank Provenzano, Assistant GM of the Dallas Stars. Where will Shane Doan sign? Why would the Flames trade Jay Bouwmeester? Where would he go?.

Part 2: Interview with Tom Lynn, former Assistant GM of the Minnesota Wild, currently of Veritas Hockey. Rapid Fire. Interview with Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospectus. Jets predicted to finish 14th by The Hockey News, Cheers & Jeers.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, August 14th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Remis took over papers from Tuesday to Friday.

Not much Winnipeg Jets news this morning, but we expect to hear from the NHLPA later today and learn what their “alternative view” on what the CBA should look like.

CBA News:

Globe & Mail: NHL, union taking different routes. If he locks out the season, does Gary Bettman still earn his $8 million per year salary?

The Canadian Press: NHLPA executive director Fehr: Union will present ‘alternative view’ to league. Anyone else having flashbacks of 2004? If only we had a World Cup to look forward to.

Detroit Free Press: NHLPA expected to give owners a counter proposal today when CBA negotiations resume in Toronto. We should get some real news today from the NHLPA, and then the negotiating can officially begin. Hopefully the two sides can come together before the CBA expires…with so much at stake, you think they’d be able to…right?

Detroit Free Press: NHL could wait almost until game time before canceling 2013 Winter Classing in event of a lockout. If there is a lockout, will there still be HBO’s 24/7? Would the show be more or less interesting if there was a lockout. At first thought, you’d think it would be less interesting because the players wouldn’t be playing hockey, and the arenas would be empty. But HBO’s team is so good at making anything interesting, I think I would still watch.

NHL News:

The Gazette: Canadiens sign Max Pacioretty to a six-year contract extension. It’s a six year deal for the 22 year old, worth $27 million ($4.5 average annual value). He would have been a restricted free agent with arbitration after the end of this season. Last season was his fourth NHL season and he scored 33 goals and 32 assists for 65 points. For comparison’s sake, Evander Kane had 30 goals and 27 assists for 57 points.

Raleigh News Observer: Hurricanes make significant progress, but aren’t done yet. Their off season included acquisitions of Jordan Staal and signings of Alex Semin and Joe Corvo have made the Hurricanes playoff contenders. Hopefully for Jets fans their division rivals are done upgrading for this season.

Eye on Hockey: Incredible photo from Willie Mitchell’s day with the Stanley Cup. I might have to start following @KeeperoftheCup on twitter.

Fire & Ice: Devils’ debt deadline likely to pass with no action from lenders. The Devils are $77 million in debt, that’s a spicy meatball!

The Tennessean: Nashville Predators CEO Jeff Cogen knows team’s money limits. Apparently signing Shea Weber was within that limit.

Tampa Bay Times: Lightning’s Mattias Ohlund better, but ice time is still distant. He’s six months removed from major knee surgery and won’t be ready for the start of the season. The Swedish defenseman will make $5 million next season and has four years $11.75 million left on his contract.

Vancouver Province: Tanev working hard on becoming big shot. The former Manitoba Moose defenseman is trying to improve his offensive game.

Junior Hockey Tournaments:

The Canadian Press: Russia edges Canada in Game 3 of junior hockey exhibition series. Russia now leads 2-1.

The Canadian Press: Canada opens Hlinka tournament with win over Swiss. Nathan MacKinnon, who is projected to go first overall in next year’s draft had a goal and two assists.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, August 15th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Jets News:

Winnipeg Free Press: A blend of agendas best for Jets fans. I’d like to believe the two sides can agree how to split $3 billion before September 15…sounds like an easy task, no?

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets rep feels deal can be reached. Glad to hear Ron Hainsey thinks the same, maybe there will be hockey in September.

Winnipeg Free Press: Businesses brace for the worst Lockout a dismal prospect. Don’t forget how the lockout would effect the third parties, aka. the downtown businesses who saw a boom last year due to the return of the Jets.

Winnipeg Free Press: True North and Jets extend ECHL affiliation with Colorado Eagles. Looks like the Eagles will be a part of the organization for one more season.

CBA News:

Globe & Mail: NHLPA tables offer to league, says players are willing to accept less. At first glance, this sounds like a step in the right direction. Hopefully the owners see it that way too.

The Canadian Press: NHLPA tables offer to league, says players willing to accept less. While the headline may be the same, this is in fact a different article from above.

USA Today: NHLPA makes first proposal in labor talks. Each day they talk, we get a bit closer to hockey.

The Detroit News: NHL players union’s proposal cause for optimism. We might be getting somewhere.

CBC.ca: Star-studded NHL cast stakes their ground in labour dispute. Player involvement can only help negotiations, right? I’m sure many of them are well versed in collective bargaining...

CBC.ca: Vote: Will the NHL season start on time? As of Wednesday morning, 62.9% expect some of the season to be lost.

NHL News:

The Hockey News: Free Agent Freeze. While there are a few quality free agents left, I wouldn’t expect the Jets to go after any of them, they appear to be done for the summer (aside from signing their restricted free agents).

The Detroit News: Detroit Red Wings fans: Thanks for the memories Tomas Holmstrom, but it’s time to retire. Tough to see fans turn on a guy who helped the franchise to four Stanley Cups…but maybe time is running out for the 39 year old. As a Mariners fan, I can relate to this as they went through a similar situation with Ichiro who was on the final year of his contract at age 38. It was definitely tough at first when they traded him to the Yankess, but in the name of winning, players are just commodities.

National Post: Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle extensions are Oilers’ next priority. It could be tough for the Oilers to be able to fit all that talent under the cap. They could be in for a situation similar to the one Pittsburgh was in this summer when they traded Jordan Staal.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, August 16th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

It’s a slow week for Winnipeg Jets news, but the NHL and NHLPA continue their meetings in Toronto this week. On yesterday’s lockout watch, the needle was pointed in favour of hockey by September 15th, but today our needle starts closer to “lockout” on our imaginary “lockout watch” meter.

CBA News:

The Canadian Press: Wide gap, says Bettman. Yesterday it appeared that the two sides were close, but apparently not so.

The Globe and Mail: Gary Bettman says ‘wide gap’ remains in NHL labour talks. They have thirty days to close that gap, can they do it?

USA Today: NHL reviews proposal, says ‘wide gap’ remains. Grantland’s Katie Baker said it best yesterday in her “Bake Shop” column,

“This labor negotiation is about how to split up a pie. The last one, which cost the league a full season, was different: more like the bakery had burned down, and they had to figure out how to rebuild it.”

C’mon NHL and NHLPA, split up that pie! As Rob Schnider said, “you can do it!“.

CBC.ca: NHL fans should prepare for the worst. I’ve got my lockout emergency kit ready, I knew PVRing every Jets game from last season would come in handy!

The Hockey News: Players playing nice in CBA talks. In the case of billionaires versus millionaires, it’s easier to take the side of the little(er) guy. (Especially if they unanimously lost the last CBA negotiation.)

The New York Times: NHL Commissioner Not Impressed with Union’s Proposal. I think it was Richard Pollock who compared Gary Bettman to Inspector Gadget’s Dr. Claw on a previous episode of the Illegal Curve Hockey Show. (You know, if Gary Bettman were a cartoon villain.)

The Sporting News: NHL labor talks: Donald Fehr ‘s union counterproposal a forward-thinking stroke of geinus. Wake me up when this is over and we can just play hockey.

SI.com: NHLPA seeks cooperation in CBA talks. A nice summary of all the key issues at stake here. (If you didn’t get that from the previous seven CBA articles).

NHL News:

Philly.com: Report: 6-year extension for Simmonds. A six year, $24 million dollar extension for the 23-year old. That’s an average annual value of $4 million, a nice raise from the $2 million he will earn this upcoming season before his extension kicks in the year after.

Vancouver Province: Canucks fans remember Rick Rypien with gathering outside Rogers Arena. I’ll also recommend to everyone to visit the Canucks’ sponsored website www.mindcheck.ca

Friday Papers

Friday, August 17th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Not much No Winnipeg Jets news today, but a potential lockout dominates this morning’s news.

CBA News:

The Canadian Press: NHLPA members ‘disappointed’ league dismisses initial proposal. Well NHLPA, it wasn’t going to be that easy avoiding a lockout. The odds of Gary Bettman looking at the players initial proposal and agreeing to it were…slim and none.

USA Today: Canceled prospects tournament could point to NHL lockout. 29 days to go until the September 15 lockout…but who’s counting?

Toronto Sun: NHLers planning a European odyssey in case of a lockout may be tough. If NHLers go to Europe, I’ll have to pick a new favourite team, HC Davos is currently the frontrunner.

Sportsnet.ca: Brophy on CBA: Don’t Shoot The Messenger. The messenger in this article is Gary Bettman.

Sportsnet.ca: With a lockout looming, we solve the NHL’s crisis in five easy steps. If only fixing the CBA was actually that easy, if it was, I’m sure it would have been done by now.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Lockout suddenly seems probable. How many fans have a reminder set for September 15th in their calendar?

The Buffalo News: NHL in October? I don’t think so. Anyone out there think that there WILL be hockey in October? I personally would like to think that they’ll be able to come to an agreement.

New York Times: In NHL Negotiation, the Union’s Good Ideas May Not Matter. Well that’s no way to negotiate now is it?

MLive.com: NHL is headed for a lockout but it won’t last into 2013, according to a national hockey writer. That national hockey writer is Adrian Dater of the Denver Post & Sports Illustrated.

NHL News:

MLive.com: Red Wings cancel annual prospects tournament in Traverse City. It was cancelled due to uncertainty surrounding the CBA. Kevin Allen of USA Today thought that this was the sign of the apocalypse (apocalypse meaning lockout).

The Canadian Press: CRTC approves sale of MLSE television channels to BCE and Rogers. If the two rival companies can work together so well on the Olympics, this should be easy as pie.

The Hockey News: Many restricted free agents still without contracts. Jets fans know that Evander Kane has yet to sign. However, Jamie Benn, PK Subban, Michael Del Zotto and Ryan O’Reilly are just some of the other restricted free agents who have yet to sign. Did I mention there was 29 days until a lockout?

Sportsnet.ca: Domi added to Maple Leafs Alumni Roster. They can cancel the whole season, but please don’t cancel the alumni game.

The Sporting News: Five Hole: Union unites, Canadiens rebuild, 2014 Olympics. My vote is to send the players to Russia.

The Star-Ledger: Devils’ David Clarkson says emotions got him through playoffs despite fractured foot. Another story about a player toughing it through an injury during the playoffs, major props to David Clarkson.

Dallas Morning News: What NHL, players can learn from Stars-Jamie Benn negotiations. Jets fans can take out Jamie Benn and Dallas Stars, and replace it with Evander Kane and Winnipeg Jets.

Dallas Morning News: A look at Mike Heika’s top 10 stars players of all time. The Stars had some great teams in the late 90′s/early 00′s – Mike Modano, Sergei Zubov, Darian Hatcher and Ed Belfour are the first four names that come to mind. (Can you name the other six?)

Saturday Papers

Saturday, August 18th Jets, IceCaps, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Big thanks to Michael Remis for stepping up and handling the Morning Papers responsibilities.

Note II: 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. Guests include; Chip Alexander (Canes beat writer, Raleigh News & Observer) and Bobby Holik (former New Jersey Devil).

Jets news:

TSN: Prospects Scheifele, Sutter ready to step it up. Always good to get a feel for how the Jets young prospects are doing and Dennis gives you some insight on these two notables.


NHL.com: Aiming higher in second season. Can it really get any better than what we experienced last year? About the only thing that could inspire an already nuts fan base would be a post season appearance.

NHL.com: Jets’ top 10 prospects get boost from recent drafts. The cupboard, which was left mostly bare following the move from Atlanta, is being steadily refilled by the Jets as they commit to building this team via the draft.

NHL.com: Kane’s future at top of Jets’ six questions. I think of all the questions the easiest to answer is number 6.

NHL.com: Lineup altered by addition of Jokinen. Not a ton of flash during free agency, but the addition of a big player like Jokinen was a solid move by Chevy & Company.

Kuklas Korner: A little background on the Jets’ newest amateur scout, Max Giese. A Q & A with the newest member of the Winnipeg Jets family.

AHL Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

The Telegram: 2012-13 schedule released. Interesting that the Caps will face non-conference opponents like Hamilton and Toronto 8 times each. Always nice to also see some new teams like Albany and Adirondack.

CBA news:

Timmins Press: Cherry expects two-month NHL lockout. Jets fans might want to factor that in when selecting their games. Might be best to wait until after September 15th before you select your season tickets.

Comcast Philadelphia: NHLPA not surprised by lockout threat. You don’t bring in Donald Fehr if you aren’t prepared to play some hardball.

Montreal Gazette: Bettman betting that NHLPA will cave and fans will forgive and forget? Fans have short memories. Yes there would be bitter feelings but at the end of the day, if the NHL and NHLPA forgive and forget and it costs part of the season, the overwhelming likelihood is that the fans will return.

Mlive.com: Owners and players beyond foolish for willingness to jeopardize NHL’s future with another lockout. As the saying goes ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it’ and it appears this might be the case once again as both sides strengthen their positions.

Overtime: Big market success should be determinative. Another interesting read by IC’s Richard Pollock on which teams should be driving the ship.

Sportsnet: United in dislike, NHL fans start boycott. At the end of the day, it is the fans who support the NHL and players at the gate. Unfortunately, aside from movements like these, which may or may not have any noticeable success, there is very little that fans can accomplish to have their plight heard by either side without being paid anything more than lip service.

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: Minnesota Wild star Dany Heatley sues ex-agent, others for $11 million. On one hand he gave someone he trusted his money but at the same time, you would think that there have been enough tales of woe for players in sports to ensure that players would check in and make sure that their financial affairs are in order. Anytime you are promised a deal that will make your investment back that quickly, it is likely too good to be true.

FS Arizona: Doan, Coyotes playing the waiting game. As the guys discussed on the show last week, is there a team in the NHL that Doan hasn’t been connected to? If the reported 28 million dollar is still on the table, he would be well advised to take it and run. This contract situation has become as painful as the Coyote’s ownership drama.
