Week of November 13th-18th: Sunday Papers

Sunday, November 18th 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 and awareness you are welcome to do so; Dave, Ezra, Drew, #5 Mark Stuart and #44 Zach Bogosian.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Blackhawk back home. Toews joined us to talk about how much he enjoyed being back in the city and being able to contribute to the charities. However you could also sense his mounting frustration as the lockout continues to grind on.


Winnipeg Free Press: Players miss camaraderie. As much as this game is work, the guys still have a ton of fun doing their job, and when you see the practical jokes going on in the dressing room, you can understand why they miss that aspect of the games.

Winnipeg Sun: Local lads missing their Winnipeg Jets. Even the young fans are sounding as jaded as everyone else.

Winnipeg Sun: Devils punish IceCaps. Much like they have done all season St. John’s split the series with Albany. These Caps need to get back to their sweeping ways if they want to content in the AHL.

Coloradoan: NHLers power Alaska to victory over Colorado. It is somewhat difficult when you’ve added AHLers and your opponent has similarly added NHLers to their roster to compete at that gun show.

Illegal Curve: Goals for Dreams highlights. Some pictures and videos from yesterday's charity game which brought together the NHLPA players and local law enforcement.

CBA news:

Star-Ledger: NHL, NHLPA schedule meeting for Monday. So much for that two week break that the NHL proposed. Perhaps they heard the grumblings of the fans and understand that their power play move may work against the players but fans were not going to approve of same.

Columbus Dispatch: All-Star Game might not be worth saving. Somewhat hard to justify anyone deserving of all-star status during this season.

New York Post: Union won’t decertify. Hardly a surprise. Another play by the NHLPA to show the unity of players.

USA Today: Claude Giroux’s injury is ‘very minor’. Whenever a marquee player is hurt, regardless of how minor the injury, the team and its fans cannot be happy that an important piece of their puzzle is now damaged.

NHL news:

Columbus Dispatch: Blue Jackets’ prospect Murray hurts shoulder. It is still too early to tell what sort of damage was done to the shoulder and Jackets fans are hoping it is minimal.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set. Conference Finals are here. Which game is more intriguing to watch?

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, November 13th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets-branded Budweiser flying off store shelves. Need a way to improve beer sales in this province? Throw on the Jets label and boom, it flies off the shelves.

Winnipeg Free Press: Pavelec Czeching out, ready to return to Canada. It was not exactly the homecoming he was expecting when he signed with his hometown team. Finished with a 4-10 record, an .896 save percentage and a 3.50 goals against average.


Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles’ goalie play getting overlooked. The Eagles have been on the receiving end of some very good goal tending during their recent 5 game winning streak.

Northern Colorado 5: Eagles away games to be shown at Stuft. Part of increasing the awareness of your brand is by expanding your exposure, and Colorado has found a way to do that via a partnership with Stuft restaurants in Northern Colorado.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Contract issues latest sticking point. This can be seen as a major problem for negotiations as both sides appear to be firmly entrenched in their position.

Sportsnet: #WeLoveHockey fans have their say. Another futile effort unfortunately as gimmicks at this point in the negotiations are quite ineffective. Both sides will only be motivated by one thing; money.

Ottawa Citizen: Senators seek ways to lure back fans. The Senators recognize that getting fans to return won’t be as easy as shooting fish in a bareel as it is for some teams in the NHL.

Globe and Mail: Tensions rising with no end to NHL labour impasse in sight. On one hand we are told to be optimistic and then with the other, we hear contrary information.

NHL news:

ESPN: Four enter Hockey Hall of Fame. It is a shame the evening had to be marred by lockout talk although the worthwhile inductees were given their time to shine.

USA Today: Blake Geoffrion’s dad - ‘We’re lucky that he’s alive’. It had the potential to be a life altering hit and luckily for the Geoffrion family, while it wasn’t pretty and turned out to be serious, he is going to be ok.

Edmonton Journal: Schultz impresses Barons teammates, Oilers brass. The teams he spurned to go to the Oilers are extremely regretful that they were unable to get a him signed. From the reports in the AHL he is excelling at this level.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, November 14th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Tuesday night the Movember Winnipeg crew held an event called Mo Food Mo Beer Mo Wine at Confusion Corner Bar & Grill which was hosted by Winnipeg’s own comedian Big Daddy Tazz. Ez and I had the opportunity to attend and it was a lot of fun. They raised a lot of money for charity with the help of some of the Jets players who were in attendance. Mark Stuart and Zach Bogosian ended up bidding against each other in the live auction for the curling jersey of 2008 World Curling Champion Jill Officer, which Zach Bogosian ended up winning. Mark Stuart’s Movember team has been amalgamated into Team Illegal Curve, so stay tuned as we kick our fund raising up a notch.


Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: A good ol’ hockey game. No NHL hockey. No problem. Stanley Cup champ Mike Richards and Jets captain Andrew Ladd decided to have an impromptu street hockey game at the top of the Forks parking complex. Along with Jets Mark Stuart and Jim Slater plus a few hundred Winnipeggers played some hockey.

Winnipeg Free Press: Next CBA crucial to Jets success. Cost certainty can go a long way to helping the long term future of the Jets franchise.

CBA news:

KTAR: Glendale copes with consequences of NHL lockout. For all the talk about how teams like Phoenix are saving money by not playing and losing money, the businesses around Westgate are losing out quite significantly.

Vancouver Sun: NHL cold war may be thawing. Larionov seems quite optimistic and let's hope for the sake of hockey he is accurate.

Globe and Mail: Hockey memorabilia seller suffers sales shutout from NHL lockout. As has been documented elsewhere, sales are down everywhere, including apparently in the memorabilia market.

Arizona Republic: Lockout reality checks the Phoenix Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette. Planning for the future probably started for many players last year as the reality of a lockout had to be present and you hope their agents advised them to put away funds for a rainy or snowy day.

Globe and Mail: An undercurrent of anger at the Hockey Hall of Fame. The thinking remains that the NHL is close to losing die hard hockey fans. I’m still not convinced this will be the reality as I think overall while fans might be furious, at their core, their love of the game will bring them back, regardless of the league politics.

NHL news:

Columbus Dispatch: Ex-Jacket goalie Leclaire retires. Always sad to see a 30 year old player forced into early retirement due to injury.

The Province: Retire Bure’s No. 10, says Larionov. The parting between the Canucks and Bure was not so sweet, but perhaps the passage of time will cool heads and have both realizing what they meant to each other.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, November 15th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: IceCaps have trouble finding the net. A lack of consistency has this club sitting at 6 wins and 7 losses just two months into the AHL season.

Winnipeg Sun: Burmistrov fitting in with IceCaps. The phrase ‘better late than never’ is appropriate but one can only be left to imagine what his development might have been like had Atlanta allowed him to mature in the minors.


Reporter Herald: Colorado athletic trainer Chris Porowski knows his wraps. Always interesting to read about the guys behind the scenes who often do so much work but are often unheralded.

The Province: Bronco’s captain sees big opportunity. Lowry looked solid when I caught part of the game in the 3rd period of the Subway Series last night, although he wasn’t a huge standout. Team WHL won the game in a shootout.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: NHLers raised to fight back. You lose the right to compare yourself to the 'average man' when you are getting paid millions of dollars to play sports. This does not in any way suggest that being a professional athlete is not a job because it is and it is extremely demanding, but you cannot suggest that "...those same hockey fans will ***** and moan about their boss and complain about how much money the company is making and taking advantage of them," said Kennedy" as if a guy making $50,000 working 9-5 is somehow akin to an NHL player.

Montreal Gazette: Both sides are wrong in NHL labour dispute. Fans are sick of picking sides. At this point they just want resolution. This article provides some interesting analysis.

Globe and Mail: Cherry still preaches, but has no pulpit. Many fans across Canada cannot wait to see the Coach back on CBC in his familiar Saturday Night 1st intermission time slot.

Globe and Mail: NHL and players’ association not even talking by phone as lockout drags on. Last week saw a rise in the optimism of fans as both sides spoke and met repeatedly. Now they have resumed their ‘normal’ levels of communication. On a positive note, last night it was reported that if there isn’t a new CBA in place in the next 7 days, the NHL may cancel games through to December 15th. Wonderful.

Ottawa Sun: Senators’ Chris Phillips rips Mark Recchi over CBA comments. Ironic how a player who has a pedigree like Recchi’s is now apparently no longer entitled to express an opinion and has his motives questioned simply because they run contrary to the party line.

Arizona Sports: Have you had your fill yet, Glendale? While the numbers who attend Jobing.com arena might not sound overwhelming, they at least are sufficient to bring life to the businesses that surround the arena.

NHL news:

Calgary Herald: Sutter back behind the bench as interim head coach in Red Deer. A Sutter coaching in Alberta. At least something is right in the hockey world these days.

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

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set. Over on the West side, players twitter accounts are being silenced. The East has ‘new’ fans thronging to the Argos banner.

Friday Papers

Friday, November 16th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: KHL's Dynamo Minsk releases Jets' Kane. Appears Kane will be pulling a reverse Rochelle Rochelle, as he heads back from Minsk. Kane played in 12 games for Dynamo Minsk, registering 1 goal, 0 assists, and a plus/minus of minus 8 with 47 penalty minutes..

Winnipeg Free Press: Vicious as a WOLVERINE. He certainly doesn’t hold back. The Jets appear to have quite the find in Trouba and his development under coach Red Berenson at the U of Michigan bears watching.

NHL.com: Khokhlachev outstanding as Russia wins Super Series. For the 2nd time in 10 years the Russians were able to pull off the series victory. Jets prospect Adam Lowry, who was captaining the WHL team, scored a goal although he finished the night -2.


Montreal Gazette: Four points for Gionta in Habs fantasy win. With the lack of conversation between either side, turning towards analysis of a fantasy game is really looking like the closest we will get to NHL hockey in near future. Last night was supposed to be the Habs first visit to the MTS Centre of the 2012-13 season. If you’re keeping track of the Jets season schedule, they were next supposed to be on the road in Boston on the 17th.

Illegal Curve: Goals for Dreams Charity game– Team Ladd vs. Team Stuart. Stay tuned on Saturday to the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 as we will be live from Max Bell from noon to 3 pm.

Sportsnet: AHL’s IceCaps look to regain winning touch. This team was 11-2-3 at this time last year. Of course Jets fans were enjoying NHL hockey at the MTS Centre so quite a lot can change in a year. Hopefully this 6 game home stand will help the Caps turn things around.

Northern Colorado 5: Eagles win streak snapped. Helps that the Aces had two NHL calibre players in Joey Crabb and Scott Gomez score some goals to end Colorado’s 5 game win streak.

CBA news:

Edmonton Journal: Why do billionaires keep buying teams that lose money. Creative accounting can do some wonderful things, especially when it gives you the ability to write a lot of things off. Which reminds me of an exchange between Kramer and Jerry Seinfeld;

Kramer: all these big companies they write off everything.
Jerry: You don’t even know what a write-off is.
Kramer: Do you?
Jerry: No, I don’t.
Kramer: But they do – and they are the ones writing it off.

While we might not be privy to the inside books of NHL teams, owners are not buying teams out of the goodness of their hearts. They have gotten where they are because of business acumen and throwing money away is generally not in their DNA.

Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Bill Daly – “Maybe they should get a reality check”. Missed pay cheques and harsh language signal this is gonna be a bumpy ride for fans.

Globe and Mail: Bettman suggests to NHLPA that sides take a break in negotiations. So on one hand the deal can be done quickly but on the other, the thought is to delay this a couple of weeks. The posturing continues as both sides battle for leverage.

Globe and Mail: Season not in danger of being wiped out – yet. It remains a ‘who will blink first’ situation between both sides.

NHL news:

Edmonton Sun: Oilers’ Fab 5 can’t wait to do it in the NHL. They might not be lifting the Stanley Cup next year (if there is a season that is) but it isn’t hard to see once they add a few more pieces to the puzzle, the label City of Champions becoming appropriate once again.

Columbus Dispatch: Jackets brass getting early jump on Amateur meetings. You can see the imprint of JD already as he attempts to get the Jackets organization up to his standard.

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

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set. Kevin Glenn will be leading the Stamps in the Western Final. Over in the East it looks like Owens could come back to haunt Als.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, November 17th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Stay tuned for a special edition of the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 today from noon to 3 pm live from the Max Bell Centre at the University of Manitoba. The guys will be interviewing players throughout the show before the players take part in the Goals for Dreams – Team Ladd vs. Team Stuart at 3:30 pm.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Euro-Flops. A little humble pie is in order after the failed European adventure taken by some members of the Jets.

Winnipeg Free Press: Trouba tweaking his speaking. Part of the maturing process is recognizing your limitations and attempting to improve on them. Good for the Jets draft pick.

Winnipeg Free Press: One step at at time for Serville. Gotta love how Michigan’s Red Berenson’s never sugar coats the truth.


Winnipeg Free Press: The missing rink. Who knew arena food could inspire such loyalty.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets think proposed two-week break ‘ridiculous’. Taking time off at this point is a calculated move by the NHL.

Winnipeg Free Press: Dynamo Minsk releases Evander Kane. Clearly Kane was not getting into the KHL mode.

The Telegram: IceCaps start homestand with win. Burmistrov scores the game winner in the shooutout. Hopefully this is going to get the Caps back on track.

CBA news:

TSN: Red Wings D White calls Bettman ‘an idiot’. When White gets his pay cheque he might want to evaluate his statement as Bettman has helped increase player salaries to unprecedented levels.

New York Daily News: Bettman backtracks as NHL lockout continues. So apparently it was just done to test limits. Boy that NHL PR machine is really doing its job. Bravo.

Globe and Mail: Welcome to the half-way point of the NHL lockout. Duhatschek thinks two more months until the drop dead date. Oh dear lord.

NHL news:

Arizona Republic: Council to review plan for Coyotes. The saga continues as Glendale council sees the payments to Jamison as too generous. At what point does Ice Edge get mentioned?

Seattle Post Intelligencer: First design concepts for Seattle’s Sodo arena project. Pretty cool and with the NHL arena problems in Southern Ontario, perhaps Seattle might be in line if a certain team in the above story doesn’t get things figured out soon.

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

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Finals in both the East and West have been set. Conference Finals are here. Which game is more intriguing to watch?
