Week of September 3rd-9th: Sunday Papers

Sunday, September 9th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: As September rolls around and all this week we wanted to bring to your attention the Pass it Forward program which provides help to youth in Winnipeg who wish to play hockey but require aid in getting the necessary equipment. The program is in it’s 4th year, they have a brand new website, an active twitter feed @PassItForwardca, and they are giving away a team-signed picture of last season’s opening faceoff. Be sure to check it out.


Jets news:

Jets Gear Store: The Home Team. The 1st ever Winnipeg Jets childrens book “The Home Team” is now available at the Jets Gear store! The link is to the Jets Gear store hours and locations which is where you can purchase this kids book.


In Goal Magazine: Montoya’s new Jets mask. If you missed this yesterday, Al Montoya’s new mask was revealed. It pays homage to the old school WWII planes as well as his Cuban heritage and family members. What are your thoughts?

Winnipeg Free Press: NHLers play waiting game. Would be quite the scrimmage to watch at the IcePlex.

CBA news:

Buffalo News: Money issues again threaten NHL season. We are about to begin the most important week of the NHL season. Will fans be waking up a week ago today to a locked out NHL or will both sides come together and prevent another lockout?

Edmonton Journal: NHL moves to get back control of the league from players. Only problem for fans of the Winnipeg Jets and presumably for other teams is that most fans have already made payments on their season ticket commitments and you know they won’t be receiving any of that back.

TSN: Daly, Steve Fehr speak briefly as CBA expiration draws near. So much for that sense of urgency.

The Province: It’s time to consider getting rid of the NHLPA all together. A radical idea that has zero chance of ever happening but fun to consider nonetheless.

NHL news:

CBC: Who will win the next Maurice Richard trophy? One would have to consider the winner last season, Steven Stamkos, as the front runner again this season. Who would you pick from this list?

ESPN: Is Marchand’s extension a bargain for B’s? Perhaps I need to take off my 1980′s glasses so I can truly see the value in signing a guy who got 55 points to a 4.5 million dollar contract.

National Post: Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens’ future filled with question marks. Big question for the Leafs is what they will do in net next season.

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. Plenty of news ahead of Sunday's Banjo Bowl contest.

Monday Papers

Monday, September 3rd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

All is silent on the Jets front.

CBA news:

Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Lockout threat casts shadow. The league is having unparalleled success but the threat of a lockout is not good for business.

Montreal Gazette: Bettman is neighbourhood bully in NHL talks. No punches pulled in this piece. Is Bettman a bully in your opinion?


Edmonton Sun: NHL lockout makes absolutely no sense. When you see the contracts getting handed out to guys who get 40-50 points, it makes you wonder what the players who regularly scored 100+ think of all this nonsense.

The Province: 15 Stages of NHL Lockout Preparation: Day 2 – “Pray”. Something tells me that we are going to need more than 15 days.

NHL news:

USA Today: Ownerless Coyotes show signs of staying power. Perhaps just before the playoffs each season the NHL will parade out a new ownership group to get the Yotes revved up before the post season.

Globe and Mail: PQ referendum threat won’t help Quebec City’s NHL dreams. Mixing politics with hockey. Great idea.

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

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: Zach Bogosian out for a minimum three months after wrist surgery. CBA Negotiations (Owners table a new offer to players, new method of defining hockey related revenue). Off-season winners and losers, Central Division.

Part 2: Off-season winners and losers Northwest Division. Off-season winners and losers Pacific Division. Interview with Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe & Mail. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.

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. Additionally, all the latest on the Labour Day thrashing at the hands of the Riders.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, September 4th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

All is silent on the Jets front.

CBA news:

Toronto Star: ‘Together We Can’ video a smash with players and fans. If you have 8 minutes to devote, watch this video. Really incredible editing.

Ottawa Citizen: Sens preparing season-ticket-package owners for the worst. Makes sense that the teams won’t bother sending out more than the first 10 games or so, considering expectations aren’t high for the season to start on time.

The Province: 15 Stages of NHL Lockout Preparation: Day 3 – “Beard”. When all else fails, try and at least laugh and enjoy yourself as the sport you love spirals out of control.

NHL news:

Florida Sun-Sentinel: *Disgruntled Canucks goalie practices in Panthers facility and wants to be traded back here where he lives in offseason. *Quite the awkward skate out in Florida for that trio.

CBC: NHL Milestones – What to watch for next season. Some good milestrones to shoot for next season but nothing earth shattering.

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.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, September 5th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Sportsnet: Own OndrejPavelec.com for 1.25M. Ever wanted to own the Jets #1 goalie? Well you couldn't buy him but you can own his domain name for a cool 1.25 million dollars. At least one industrious ebay seller thinks there will be interest.

Winnipeg Free Press: Fans paying for NHL’s greed. Players and owners are banking on fans grumbling but not doing much else in the way of showing their displeasure. Reality is whenever NHL gets going in the Peg’, whether it is October 13th or later on, both sides know the MTS Centre will be packed.


The Coloradoan: Eagles sign Colorado native. The ECHL affiliate of Winnipeg added some local content to their roster.

CBA news:

Sportsnet: KHL braces for windfall, will welcome NHLers. If you are the KHL, I’m sure you would be happy to welcome back the Russian superstars (i.e. Ovechkin, Datsyuk, Malkin) but would you want your league overrun with NHL players? Players who may just be there for a very short period of time.

Globe and Mail: With NHL labour talks at impasse, players cast glance overseas. Of course they are looking overseas and with good reason as all this unity talk will quickly dissolve once players start missing a few pay periods.

ESPN: Amid uncertainty, GM focuses on season. Whenever this deal gets done, what scrambling teams like the Bruins will have to do in order to get their team in order.

Washington Times: Transcript of Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin talking NHL-NHLPA labor dispute. Aside from giving us ‘The Bettman” as a new cartoon character, reading the transcript of his interview makes you question if Ovechkin understands that the average fan cannot empathize with his situation?

CBC: No NHL lockout in 2012. Always interesting to read what the host of Hockey Night in Canada has to say and in this instance his gut appears to be that both sides will get a deal done. We are approximately 10 days away from finding out if he is right or not.

NHL news:

ESPN: Suitor secures financing. A deal for the Coyotes is not a deal until the Ice Edge Group has been mentioned. Good for Jamison & Company for potentially finally getting this done and just in time to sign Shane Doan before his September 15th deadline.

Denver Post: Gabriel Landeskog succeeds Milan Hejduk as Colorado Avalanche captain. A fairly significant achievement, considering he eclipsed the mark set by some Penguins captain named Crosby by 11 days.

The Province: How much longer will Luongo linger? Looks like he could be blowing in the wind for some time as the Canucks do not seem overly eager to get anything done with the options currently available. Or perhaps his monster contract continues to scare off potential buyers, especially given the CBA uncertainty.

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. Additionally, all the latest on the Labour Day thrashing at the hands of the Riders.

Illegal Procedure: A Season on the Brink - Penalizing yourself into peril. The Bombers gave up more yards on penalties than were produced by the Bombers offence. In an effort to better understand the penalties, and in the spirit of this being the ‘back to school’ article, provided below is a grading scheme for conceptualizing new head coach Tim Burke’s focus on discipline (that has been the focus of the management and the media for the last week) having made any noticeable difference.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, September 6th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets plan for fans to miss games. Many fans were wondering “when will I be receiving my tickets” so it is good that the Jets are planning on notifying their season ticket holders in the near future.

Winnipeg Free Press: Checking out their options. As we get closer and closer to September 15th, we will be hearing more and more about Jets players plans to play elsewhere as a lockout looms.

EB Sports: NHL 13 Launch Events. Here is your chance to meet Evander Kane as he will be at the EB Games on Regent on Tuesday, September 11th.


TSN: Expiry of CBA significant for group of young RFAs. Speaking of Evander Kane, here is a good read from Bob McKenzie on what could happen to current RFAs.

CBA news:

ESPN: Players more unified than ever. Paul Kelly, formerly the executive director of the National Hockey League Players’ Association, gives his thoughts on the state of the players.

USA Today: NHLPA gives players lockout preparation memo. The PA sending this memo on how to handle a lockout, while prudent planning, is another sign which does not bode well for labour peace.

Los Angeles Times: Bill Daly questions players’ urgency in labor talks. The dialogue has continued but again, as has been stated here previously, there is no appearance of urgency on either side.

The Hockey News: Bring sanity to CBA outrage. Bottom line, be skeptical of everything you read. (Unless it is on Illegalcurve.com of course).

NHL news:

Edmonton Journal: John Graham convinced Saskatoon is ready for the NHL. Perhaps we will get a chance to see Saskatoon and its suitability for NHL hockey if the pre-season game between the Jets and Bruins set for Saturday, September 29th goes off as scheduled.

Montreal Gazette: Quebec City’s NHL hopes take a hit. Until a deal is signed in Phoenix, nothing is certain, although it is looking up for hockey in the desert.

NHL.com: Seven of the most unlikely single-game performances. Quite a span of time elapsed between remarkable single-game performances.

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. Plenty of news ahead of Sunday's Banjo Bowl contest.

Message from True North to fans on Waiting List

Message from True North to fans on Waiting List

Nothing terribly informative. Would appear that fans won't be hearing until after the 15th.

Friday Papers

Friday, September 7th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note II: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 tomorrow as we return to our Fall/Winter noon to 3 pm schedule. We have an action packed 3 hour show with a 4-man booth, which will include @ICdrew, @ICezzyg, @mremis and yours truly @ICdave. Guests include: Bill Lindsay (Florida Panthers Radio Analyst), Kalen Qually (Pass it Forward).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets come up with ‘contingency’ plan. Not much news on the ticket front. The Jets were just alerting their season ticket holders and those on the Waiting List that they likely won’t be receiving anything until after the 15th. Let’s hope the only calls going out on the 15th are Happy Birthday wishes to me and not plans on what to do if the league locks out the players.

CBA news:

Toronto Star: Gary Bettman, Donald Fehr to forfeit pay during lockout. The assertion being made by the players was that Commissioner Bettman would still be paid even if there was a lockout, but it appears that is no longer the case. So perhaps the NHLPA can focus on the issues and ignore the inflammatory statements.


TSN: Common ground needed to advance CBA negotiations. As antithetical as this suggestion is gonna sound, perhaps it is time the two sides spent time negotiating with each other instead of worrying about controlling the message via the media.

ESPN: The state of CBA negotiations. I don’t think anyone is surprised about the current status of the negotiations although I did expect to see more of a pretense of urgency.

TSN: CHL, AHL prepared for locked out and post-lockout NHL. The lockout won’t just impact the NHL as the ripple effect will be felt in other leagues.

NHL news:

Arizona Republic: Phoenix Coyotes’ Shane Doan breaks his silence. There still appears to be some uncertainty with the Coyotes situation but Doan is not saying what we long suspected would be the case, that he will remain with the Coyotes organization.

OC Register: Ryan drama is all NHL has right now. Ryan attempts to back tracking from his earlier comments.

National Post: Roberto Luongo still participating as member of Canucks … for now. Can this situation be any more awkward?

USA Today: Sabres owner Terry Pegula has Buffalo buzzing. Love reading about the type of positive impact an owner can have on the community.

ESPN: One year later, loss still painful. It seems unbelievable that a year has already passed since this horrible tragedy.

Globe and Mail: Ice Edge back in the mix to purchase Phoenix Coyotes. Will this finally be the time they get the deal done?

Globe and Mail: Canadian NHL clubs sacrificing revenue. Last week’s guest on the IC Hockey Show Bruce Dowbiggin with another informative piece.

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. Plenty of news ahead of Sunday's Banjo Bowl contest.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, September 8th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 today as we return to our Fall/Winter noon to 3 pm schedule. We have an action packed 3 hour show with a 4-man booth, which will include @ICdrew, @ICezzyg, @mremis and yours truly @ICdave. Guests include: Bill Lindsay (Florida Panthers TV Analyst), Kalen Qually (Pass it Forward), Ed Willis (Vancouver Province).

Jets news:

In Goal Magazine: Montoya’s new Jets mask. That is a pretty slick looking mask for the new Jets goalie. What are your thoughts?


The Telegram: How an NHL lockout would affect the IceCaps. Quite a few names on the IceCaps could have been wearing Jets jerseys. If there is a long lockout, which player would benefit most from playing in the AHL?

CBA news:

NorthJersey.com: Respect can get NHL out of neutral zone. The only side given zero respect in this battle are the fans unfortunately. They are being taken for granted by both sides.

MassLive.com: Boston Bruins cancel rookie camp and tournament. Considering that rookies were scheduled to start in a week, not a surprise the B’s cancelled, based on the state of negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA.

Edmonton Journal: Owners of Oilers, Flames may hit legal snag if NHL locks out its players. Gotta love legal challenges. While the NHLPA is free to use the law to its advantage, perhaps they would best be served spending more time negotiating in the boardroom instead of at Court.

NHL news:

Vancouver Sun: Espo’s historic rant inspired by Vancouver boo-birds. We will be talking a lot about the best Canadian team to ever represent our country. Many fondly recall 72′ but my personal favourite was the 87′ Canada Cup.

Arizona Republic: Phoenix Coyotes, Shane Doan have a deal in principle worked out. You cannot be surprised that the Coyotes captain wants to remain loyal to the only NHL team he has ever played for, however it will be interesting to see how that team rewards him for that loyalty. As was reported he did have an offer from a mysterious Eastern Conference team (reportedly the Buffalo Sabres) for 4 years, 28 million so it will be interesting to see if this new deal is anywhere close. A report out of the Vancouver Province has the contract at 4 years, 21.5 million.

Bostn Globe: Brad Marchand signs four-year, $18 million extension. I was discussing this yesterday and had to check capgeek to see if his contract was actually 4.5 million per after next season. While his grit is well regarded, apparently 55 points (70th in the NHL last season overall) sure counts for a lot in today’s NHL.
