Week of November 19th-25th: Sunday Papers (Former NHLPA boss Paul Kelly audio)

Sunday, November 25th 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 ($4,104.00 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:

Globe and Mail: Mark Scheifele scores hat trick for OHL's Barrie Colts. Good to see that he is continuing to tear things up in Jr. He is now 3rd overall in OHL scoring with 20 goals, 23 assists for 43 points in 25 games.

NHL.com: Kosmachuk with four points as the Storm beat the 67's 7-5. Another Jets prospect who had a hat trick last night.

The Telegram: P-Bruins beat IceCaps in a shootout. This is a new type of pattern the Jets AHL team could do without.


Reporter Herald: Brown steady in net as Colorado Eagles claim victory. Despite having never played an Eastern Conference team, the Eagles were able to take 2 out of 3 games in Colorado after last night’s 4-1 victory.

CBA news:

Illegal Curve: To listen to yesterday’s interview with former NHLPA executive Director Paul Kelly.

Boston Globe: Victory is there — now NHL owners need to claim it. The owners want victory but they need to be magnanimous as they achieve same or they could alienate their players and more importantly their fans even further.

USA Today: Locked-out players put on a show for fans, charity. At least they can use their time to help a good cause.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts. We have all the latest news from both the Calgary and Toronto perspective.

Monday Papers

Monday, November 19th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Kosmachuk hot and cold. After a torrid pace in October, his goal scoring has slowed in November but he still leads his OHL team in scoring.

TSN: Winnipeg’s Keane Classic provides a taste of the NHL. With all the hockey being played in Winnipeg last week it was almost enough to make you forget the lockout…almost.


The Telegram: IceCaps keep doing the splits. No time to dwell on the loss this past weekend as they have a date with the Hamilton Bulldogs on Tuesday and Wednesday.

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

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: NHL commissioner discusses lockout issues. Gary had a 30 minute chit chat with the league commissioner and the entire contents of that conversation are included in the article.

CBC: 30 Thoughts - Season of growing discontent. Always an excellent/informative read, although this week it is understandably down to 20 instead of 30 thoughts. Looks like Jets defenceman Ron Hainsey got a bit heated with the commissioner.

Globe and Mail: NHL talks resume, but optimism doesn’t. After reading Eric Duhatschek’s column this past weekend which used 2 months as a deadline for how much longer this lockout could stretch before the season is cancelled, I think the reason for a lack of optimism is justified.

Philadelphia Daily News: Snider’s statement. Snider reaffirms his hawk status as he disavows the story that was reported earlier this weekend.

New York Times: Week later, more talks, and perhaps some shifting. We are to be optimistic that they managed to agree to a meeting but can they actually agree to the issues that face both sides?

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

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: Evander Kane released from contract with Dynamo Minsk of the KHL. NHL proposes two week moratorium on CBA discussions. Contracting issues. What to do with HRR split? CBA discussions. The role of the agent.

Part 2: Interview with Shea Weber. Interview with Andrew Ladd. Interview with Jonathan Toews. CBA discussions. Hall of Fame inductions. Rapid Fire, Cheers & Jeers.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Grey Cup Finals have been set. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, November 20th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele learning the hard lessons about how to move up to bigs. Learning from one of the best has continued to help the Jets 1st pick overall from 2011.


ChrisD.ca: NHL Players to Join Firefighters, Police in Charity Hockey Game. While some players around the league have made questionable PR moves (i.e. hats that say Puck Gary or calling the commissioner an “idiot” and the latest one a “cancer”) the Jets players have been pretty quiet on that front. Instead they have wisely been participating in charity games or impromptu pick up games which have helped to cement their place in this city.

The Telegram: IceCaps dealing with power-play outage. Scoring just 2 power play goals in 56 opportunities is not going to help your team win many hockey games.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles look on the bright side. After a 5 game win streak, the Eagles came up short on their Alaskan adventure but the team took some positives from the trip.

CBA news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Negotiations? Yawwwwn… just let us know when it’s over. The apathy that fans are feeling is palpable. Whenever we talk to people these days the sentiment is just as Ed conveys in this article, they just want to know when it’s over and they can head back to the rink. The constant PR games by both sides are pretty useless as fans seem immune to the moves.

Comcast Philadelphia: Versteeg wants ‘cancers’ Bettman, Fehr gone. It is this type of vitriol which is completely unnecessary. Perhaps Kris Versteeg needs to head to his local hospital to see what real cancer looks like and perhaps then he won’t be so casual when referencing such a serious disease.

Globe and Mail: Will the real players in this lockout drama please step up. At this point would the intervention of the best players on both sides have a real impact?

Toronto Star: Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke new face at talks. This process needs new ideas and perhaps with the addition of new voices at the table we can start to see some progress with talks.

Globe and Mail: When it comes to NHL lockouts, nothing changes but the names. That’s why Bettman has to be somewhat immune to the name calling. He experienced it back in 94′ and again in 05′ although with social media this time around it has become much more wide-spread.

Columbus Dispatch: All-Star Game nears cancellation. Looks like the game is scheduled to go along with the next segment of cancellations by the league which as far as I’m concerned is appropriate given that neither side deserves reference as all-star this season.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Grey Cup Finals have been set. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, November 21st Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets news:

The Hockey Writers: Zachery Yuen interview – Getting ready for Yuen-sanity. Probably a bit soon for Jets fans to be planning to get excited over Yuen-sanity but he is a nice defensive prospect for the Jets system.


TSN: Pasquale stops 45 shots to help IceCaps defeat Bulldogs. Perhaps Pasquale can help turn things around for the IceCaps who have been in a malaise to start the season.

The Coloradoan: Defending ECHL champs face off against Eagles. Interesting that the Eagles have never before faced a team from the Eastern Conference. But that changes when the ECHL champion Florida Everblades come to town.

CBA news:

Columbus Dispatch: Dreaming of the draft. Looks like 6 teams, including Winnipeg, would have a pretty, pretty, pretty good chance of landing the number 1 pick overall.

Globe and Mail: NHL’s corporate wall showing signs of cracking. This time around the NHL has more major NHL sponsors that they need to appease.

Globe and Mail: The NHL should learn from its ‘socialist’ cousin, the NFL. Would you prefer to see a more balanced NHL? It is difficult to compare yourself to the most successful league in North America, but perhaps they have been able to achieve this via the “League Think” approach.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Lockout costs Pittsburgh area economy $2.1M for each home game lost. You can expect that this situation is going on in all NHL cities.

Sportsnet: Making sense of nonsense (video). John Shannon, Nick Kypreos and Scott Morrison discuss what to expect from the upcoming negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA.

USA Today: Time for NHL, players to negotiate or face disaster. Really appears that the players end game is in sight.

Montreal Gazette: Without fanfare, former Hab Spacek retires. The first NHL player casualty of the lockout.

NHL news:

Delaware County-Times: Flyers’ Giroux to visit concussion specialist. The big concern when your player goes off to Europe to play hockey is they return to North America sporting an injury.

TSN: Blue Jackets prospect Murray may require shoulder surgery. Hopefully for Jackets fans it turns out that he doesn’t need surgery.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Grey Cup Finals have been set. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts.

Thursday, November 22nd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: We are introducing the newest IC Contest; Guess the day the lockout is officially announced as over by the NHL. Send us an @ tweet to @illegalcurve with the date you think the NHL will publicly state the lockout has ended and you can win IC Gear as well as some gifts from our sponsors.

Note II: While we usually don’t have previews of the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 until Friday, the guys have informed me that they will be having former Executive Director of the NHLPA Paul Kelly on the show. So be sure to tune in for an action packed show on Saturday, November 24th from noon until 3 pm.

Jets & Affiliate news:

Globe and Mail: Cedrick Desjardins makes 29 saves to lead Bulldogs over IceCaps. And just like that, St. John’s is back to splitting series. This team just cannot seem to put together a streak.

Reporter Herald: Florida Everblades slice Colorado Eagles up. The first visit by an Eastern Conference team to Colorado ended badly as the defending ECHL champs won big 7-4 last night.

CBA news:

NBC Sports: Neuvirth supports Hamrlik, thinks lockout is about “several superstars with big contracts”. At least the Capitals team is sticking together.

Globe and Mail: Hamrlik's comments put him in middle of NHL firestorm. Regardless of what side you favour in this dispute, Hamrlik's comments are refreshingly candid. Also appreciate that he didn't backtrack because he took some heat for his statements.

Columbus Dispatch: All-Star Game might get axed Friday. Appears we might lose another 2 weeks worth of games tomorrow and as expected the All-Star game will likely be cancelled as well.

Globe and Mail: NHLPA’s hard-liners hint at decertification. Negotiation tip 101 – when the other side rejects your offer, default to nuclear threat.

TSN: Hamrlik not happy with Fehr; Cole calls comments selfish. The first big crack comes from a veteran player and not surprisingly he gets jumped on for voicing an opinion. Of course he could have easily shared this privately but perhaps he had and felt he needed to make the comments public. Hamrlik is probably concerned that at 38 he won’t be ever able to get back his 3.5 million dollar salary that he was set to draw this season.

CBC: Still too many hard lines being drawn in NHL talks. Friedman seems incredulous that both sides can continue to play these games but considering that we have reached this point, nothing is really surprising about this process anymore.


Globe and Mail: The NHLPA proposal by the numbers. Mirtle breaks down the key details, other issues and of course, the fine print.

Globe and Mail: Read the NHLPA offer. If watching paint dry isn’t exciting enough for you, why not give this a read.

theScore: Angry Fan Confronts Bettman. I’m actually surprised we don’t see more of these types of incidents.

Sportsnet: Ryan signs overseas despite comments. Back in September Bobby Ryan said “I’m an NHL player. I’m not going to take somebody else’s job overseas”. Hmmm.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. While the Bombers season might be done there is still plenty of CFL news as the Grey Cup Finals have been set. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts. We have all the latest news from both the Calgary and Toronto side of things.

Friday Papers

Friday, November 23rd Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Jets & Affiliate news:

Illegal Curve: Lockout audio. Spoke with Andrew Ladd and Blues Ryan Reaves. Ladd has quite a bit to say about Hamrlik as well as decertification.

The NHL has cancelled another 2 weeks of schedule today. The Jets games that are lost are; Home Games - Lightning, Bruins, Hurricanes &, Islanders. Away Games - Penguins & Leafs.


CBA news:

Toronto Star: Don Cherry to players - smarten up. Gotta love Cherry. He is bang on, the personal attacks by players on Bettman are completely counter-productive and do nothing to align players with fans against owners, which appears to be the intent. Also love how he gets in the Kadri plug.

Montreal Gazette: Habs’ owner Molson optimistic about season. A great interview with the owner of the Canadiens.

Globe and Mail: Exasperated Ryan Miller heartily endorses decertification of union. Always seen as a bit more cerebral, the Sabres goalie lets it all out in this letter to the Globe and Mail.

Toronto Star: Cracks appear in players’ armour after Hamrlik comments. As I said yesterday it is not shocking that a 38 year old player like Hamrlik, who was slated to make 3.5 million this season, made the comments he did.

Los Angeles Times: NHL follows NBA only so far. Will the NHL be able to come to a resolution like the NBA did to save the season? Remains to be seen.

TSN: Three CBA-related issues to be talked about soon. With regards to issue 1, it could mean another 2 weeks of games, which for Jets fans would see 7 games cancelled (assuming NHL cancels games until December 15th when Winnipeg would have played Pittsburgh at MTS Centre).

NHL news:

CBC: Hamilton Bulldog Blake Geoffrion thanks fans after serious injury. While this could have turned out much worse, Geoffrion was quite lucky and had the benefit of excellent medical staff.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts. We have all the latest news from both the Calgary and Toronto perspective.

Saturday Papers

Saturday, November 24th Jets, CBA and General NHL news

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 from noon to 3 pm today for an action packed show. Guests: Paul Kelly (former Executive Director of the NHLPA), Michael McCann (Sports Illustrated and SI.com Legal Analyst).

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Sun: Jets captain Ladd faces off with Hamrlik over lockout. Ladd was not at all impressed with the comments made by Hamrlik or Neuvrith. He also referenced “decertification” saying “…..I think it would be a good one for us. At some point, you have to start fighting back. We don’t have much leverage and we know they’re just trying to wait us out. We might as well try to do something.”

Winnipeg Sun: Toby Enstrom signs with Swedish team. Signed to play with his brother in the Swedish 2nd division.

Illegal Curve: Lockout audio. Spoke with Andrew Ladd and Blues Ryan Reaves. Ladd has quite a bit to say about Hamrlik as well as decertification.


CBA news:

Montreal Gazette: NHL proves rich people are different. It is quite interesting to see which owners show up to the CBA meetings and which do not.

ESPN: NHL behaving like ‘bullies’. Whitney has been through 4 of these work stoppages and voices his opinion as to what he sees as problems with the current situation.

Globe and Mail: Bettman and Fehr should put their jobs on the line. Not really sure why either would ever willingly put their careers on the line in such a way.

CBC: Why NHLPA decertification is a bad idea. You can hear all you want about decertification today on the show as Michael McCann will give you all his insight into the process but this article will be a good prior to listening.

NHL news:

Montreal Gazette: Some wild and wacky NHL contracts. Those Islanders sure have some odd contracts that they have signed over the years. This book sounds like it would be a good/entertaining read.

CFL news:

Illegal Procedure: CFL Playoff Papers. The 100th Grey Cup will feature the Calgary Stampeders heading east to play the hometown Toronto Argonauts. We have all the latest news from both the Calgary and Toronto perspective.
