Week of December 3rd - 9th: Sunday Papers

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

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Jets: Mick E Moose and the Jets community team were at Valley Gardens community centre yesterday morning for a breakfast with Santa!


The Telegram: IceCaps swept by Falcons; dip below .500. Unlike their ECHL counterparts, the IceCaps were swept in their weekend series, for the first time on home ice.

The Coloradoan: Colorado withstands late charge to win second-straight road game. Don’t look now but these guys are becoming road warriors all of a sudden with their 2nd win in as many nights in California. Eagles return home for a 2 game series against Las Vegas.

CBA news:

CBC: NHLPA’s Donald Fehr says league, union were close to a deal. It appears both sides continue to speak a different language than the other. One side says they were close and the other says that a wide gulf existed. We will see over the course of the next few days which proves most accurate.

Globe and Mail: How Canadians are reclaiming their lives (and Saturday nights) thanks to the lockout. While many people I have spoken with are enjoying the free time in their calendars you can sense that almost all are eager to have the continuity of hockey in winter return to their lives.

TSN: Fehr anxious for return to the bargaining table. Another tactic to make it appear that the NHL is not serious about bargaining.

Sportsnet: Franchises in trouble. Should the prospect of failing franchises be enough to convince players to ‘do their part’ to get a deal done and to help the owners who pay their salaries?

World Junior news:

Edmonton Journal: RNH chooses Canada. Not terribly surprising that fans in Canada wanted to see RNH representing his country rather than playing in the AHL.

Toronto Star: Top 10 players to watch. Three of the ten guys on the list are from Team Canada, although the Jets Mark Scheifele did not crack the Top 10 list.

Sportsnet: Lockout poses big problem for Team Canada. The uncertainty with the lockout can pose significant ramifications to the composition of this team. Guys like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Jonathan Huberdeau, Ryan Strome, Boone Jenner, Mark Scheifele, Dougie Hamilton could end up in NHL camps if lockout gets resolved.

Hockey news:

Globe and Mail: US blanks Canada to win World Sledge Hockey Challenge gold. Canadians never like to lose hockey tournaments, especially not to our southern neighbors, but it sounds like the Americans had a well deserved victory yesterday.

Monday Papers

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

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Sun: Jets happy to have Mark Chipman involved in talks. It is clear his players respect him as an owner and perhaps this is the type of respect that can help make the atmosphere more cordial during talks.

Winnipeg Sun: Mark Scheifele the only Jets prospect invited to World Junior camp. The Jets #1 pick in 2011 has been ripping up the OHL this year and was a no brainer invite for Team Canada. Some thought Adam Lowry of Swift Current might be invited for try outs but Scheifele is only Jets prospect getting the chance to possibly shine on the World stage.

TSN: NHL owners and players to meet on Tuesday in New York. One of those present will be the Winnipeg Jets Mark Chipman, who will likely bring a level headed approach to these negotiations which appears to be missing. The other 5 owners who will be taking part in the talks are Larry Tanenbaum (Toronto Maple Leafs), Ron Burkle (Pittsburgh Penguins), Jeff Vinik (Tampa Bay Lightning), Murray Edwards (Calgary Flames) and Jeremy Jacobs (Boston Bruins).


The Telegram: IceCaps not out of the woods yet. When putting their win streak up against one of the better AHL teams, the Caps’ saw that they still have some work to do to get this season turned back around.

CBA news:

Montreal Gazette: Time for fans to mobile-ize. Quite the leap to paralleling the Arab Spring with attempts for fans to show their disdain for the present NHL regime as Todd seems to ascribe it. I still don’t see the point. Call it apathy or being pragmatic, but the fans of NHL hockey will inevitably return to the sport whenever it decides to make its return.

Toronto Star: Back to a Dark Future. Creating this level of distrust is short-sighted as neither the players or owners are particularly enamored with the other side right now. Levels of resentment are at unprecedented levels and are blinding both the players and owners from making any compromises.

Edmonton Journal: Will 2012 be Gary Bettman’s last stand as commissioner? Perhaps or perhaps not but it seems like a waste of energy speculating as to whether or not the commissioner will still be in his present role at this time next year. There can be no doubt that Gary Bettman is more than simply a pawn of ownership and he is likely well aware of the temperature of the room when his 29 bosses get together and has adjusted his strategy accordingly. It would be the height of hubris to think that he cares not one whit about the positions of his employers.

Calgary Herald: Fans going through the five stages of grieving. Are these feelings just in cow-town or have they spread to the 29 other NHL cities?

NHL news:

Edmonton Journal: Canada’s world junior team always dominates during NHL lockouts. One positive of the lockout is Canadian teams are almost unbeatable when they amass a firepower that is difficult to match.

Toronto Sun: Crown to argue more jail time for pedophile Graham James. The book continues to be thrown at James.

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

Illegal Curve Hockey Show replay:


Part 1: Jeremy Jacobs vs. Winnipeg Jets. Gary Bettman proposes a CBA meeting between players & owners only after mediation fails to provide any positive momentum. CBA discussions continued. More CBA discussion. Interview with Craig Button of TSN. Forbes releases 2012-13 valuations for NHL teams.

Part 2: Interview with Jeff Citron, Partner at Goodmans, former Associate Council of the NHLPA (1995-2000). The real finances of an NHL team. NHL News & Notes. Rapid Fire. Movember wrap up with Jeff Palson (Movember Winnipeg co-chair).

Dave and Ezra shave-off for Movember. It isn’t every day you have a live shave-off on radio but that is exactly what happened during the last 15 minutes of the show on Saturday as the boys paid tribute to the end of Movember.

Tuesday Papers

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

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets' Trouba invited to Team USA selection camp. The hard hitting Michigan defender is heading to Team USA in New York.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets players applaud Chipman’s presence at talks. Getting these two sides together is starting to look as monumental as bringing the Jets back to Winnipeg. Of course we know how that turned out!

Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele super-psyched. The Jets first round selection in the 2011 entry draft is a lock to make this year’s team. Expect more from him than you saw last year.


Northern Colorado 5: Eagles Week In Review. Taking a look back at the week that was and ahead to what the Jets ECHL franchise can expect.

CBA news:

National Post: A players’ guide to owners. A little levity is always nice to add to these somber proceedings.

Globe and Mail: New voices in NHL labour talks may provide last chance to salvage season. I would be shocked if this meeting doesn’t go the distance. While they certainly will not conclude the meeting with a signed deal, the discourse will hopefully change for the better following the meeting.

Globe and Mail: Player safety is the elephant in the NHL’s labour negotiations room. As per usual Roy makes an excellent point about an issue that is getting lost in the nuts and bolts of CBA negotiation.

Ottawa Citizen: Senators players jaded by lockout process. The players are sounding as resigned about the process as are 99% of the fans still paying attention.

Toronto Star: Owners and union fight but regular folks get bruised. The story is playing out across 30 cities in North America as people who rely on the game for their livelihood are dealing with the 2nd lockout in 8 years. It’s a shame their isn’t a ‘make whole’ provision for the people who truly need it.

Washington Post: Alex Ovechkin says his soul is in NHL, with Capitals. Caps fans can rejoice that Ovi still longs to put on their jersey and help them win the Stanley Cup.

NHL & Team Canada news:

Winnipeg Sun: No Manitobans asked to try out for Team Canada. The lockout is impacting this as there are likely a number of Manitobans who could have been invited had their been no lockout.

CBC: 10 thoughts on Canada’s world junior camp. Will the lockout trend continue? Can this team duplicate the feats from 1995 (7-0) and 2005 (6-0)? For anything you want to know about Team Canada.

Ottawa Citizen: Bettman inherited overexpansion woes to southern U.S. It is likely his stubbornness to relocate problem franchises, which is why people so often associate him with Sun Belt teams.

Wednesday Papers

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

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets check Burmi’s ‘upper-body injury’. While there is never a good time to be injured, the good news for Burmistrov and the IceCaps is they don’t play again until Friday. Gotta love that instagram broke the news of his return.

Winnipeg Free Press: Another go at the gold. The US finished 7th last season but with only 3 returning players, of which Trouba is one, they expect a big turnaround.

Winnipeg Sun: Big defenceman Trouba turning heads in freshman year. While the University of Michigan season hasn’t been too strong (off to a 5-8-2 record), the Jets 1st pick in the 2012 entry draft has been holding his own.

CBC: RCMP warn shoppers about counterfeit goods. Quite the decrease in counterfeit Jets jerseys from last year to this year.

Jets official site: Coach Claude Noel spending his time helping Winnipeg’s AAA minor hockey program (video). Most Jets fans would rather see him coaching the Jets but perhaps with his help, Manitoba will be sending more players to Team Canada.


Idaho Mountain Express and Guide: Winger Sides gets call-up to AHL St. John’s. Lots of excitement as the local product gets the call up from the ECHL to the AHL.

VOCM: IceCaps Visit Cancer Care Centre. Always good to see the players trying to spread some cheer to young fans who are suffering.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles’ Teegan Moore hopeful for weekend return. Let’s hope his inclusion in the lineup can help the Eagles with their woeful road record.

CBA news:

ESPN: Sides to meet again today. After yesterday’s productive talks, let us hope that another marathon session will produce some tangible results.

Toronto Star: Season could be saved as labour talks heat up. It appears that if this lockout gets resolved, fans from across the league should be thanking those members of the Penguins organization who appear to be bridging the gap that has grown between the two sides.

CBC: Daly, Steve Fehr make joint appearance after ‘constructive’ talks. A 10 hour meeting and then a joint-statement from the NHL and NHLPA. Perhaps we are getting somewhere! While it is too soon to get overly excited, ‘cautious optimism’ appears to be the sentiment around the league.

Globe and Mail: Enduing his third lockout, Teemu Selanne’s career hangs in the balance. It would be a real shame to have the career of the Finnish Flash end without him being the one to makie the decision. While the last lockout likely extended his career by allowing his body to heal, there are no illusions that another year off at 42 years of age would likely spell the end of the line. Fortunately for Jets fans they had one of the most unique experiences I've ever seen when Teemu came to town last December, so if in fact he does retire, they saw him go out on a high note.

NHL news:

Detroit Free Press: If new home built for Red Wings, will the beloved Joe have to go? As someone who saw a number of games live at Joe Louis Arena I have developed quite an affinity for the old barn but for Detroit to get a shiny new arena might be just what the doctor ordered. There is only so much Little Caesars a guy can eat.


Sportsnet: Bettman to hold press conference. The commish will address the media today at about 12pm following the league’s Board of Governors meeting in New York.

World Junior news:

Globe and Mail: Young Americans in the world junior hockey spotlight. The excitement of announcing their roster is over as they head to New York under the watchful eyes of former Jets defenceman Phil Housley.

Montreal Gazette: Set your alarm for this year’s World Junior tournament. Not sure how many people will be watching the game live (start times around 4:30 am) but with the reliability of PVRs, you can catch all the action at your leisure.

Thursday Papers

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

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Chipman brings respect to table. He is a recent addition to the NHL ownership group but his voice is already seen as a voice of reason.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets return a real possibility in December. The talk yesterday was a 56 game season in which you would play the other 14 teams in your conference 4 times. The excitement level is high but we should caution fans that we have been down this road before so we wouldn’t start counting our games before their scheduled.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets news and notes. Burmistrov gets checked by Winnipeg doctors, Yasin Cisse (5th round choice of the Thrashers in 2010) leaves Boston University to join Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, Pavelec finds form and in sad news Dustin Byfuglien’s uncle was killed in an accident.

Wall Street Journal: Thomson Reuters Tie-Up Pressures Canadian Scion. An interesting read about one of the owners of the Jets. The site has a paywall but if you click Media & Marketing, you can read the article.

CBC: The package – Mark Scheifele. Over on CBC.com they are periodically checking in with prospects and they took a look at Jets 2011 1st round selection Mark Scheifele.


The Telegram: IceCaps get hat trick at award ceremony. While many think you simply have to put a hockey team into a Canadian market and it will be an instant money maker, the IceCaps have shown that it takes hard work to make this happen.

The Coloradoan: Collin Bowman a strong presence for Eagles. They say defenceman take a little longer to mature and it appears that Bowman is could be coming into his own this season.

CBA news:

CBC: Players in tough spot. There is a reason the expression at the casino is "the house always wins". The owners are in the position of power and at this point the players are scrambling to get as much house money as they can.

USA Today: NHL offer forces players to make big decision. Both sides are being forced to really do some soul searching to determine if their demands are not worth compromising. Here is a look at what the owners have offered.

Toronto Star: Owners almost abandoned talks before cooler heads prevailed. Another in a long line of bargaining tactics that have been employed by the NHL owners.

Sportsnet: NHL podium steals spotlight, hilarity ensues. This is the joy of the internet. Much like Clint Eastwood’s chair, someone decided to create an NHL podium twitter account, which just yesterday alone, cracked over 10,000 followers. And to the credit of whomever is running the account the tweets have been hilarious. Of course this isn’t the first time an inanimate object has gained fame on twitter. We shouldn’t ever forget @IllegalCurveHat.

Toronto Star: The nuts and bolts of getting players back on the ice. A pretty comprehensive Q & A on all things regarding the lockout.

Globe and Mail: Significant progress reported without Bettman and Fehr in the room. Kudos to Gary Bettman for removing the Fehr from the room. It was a masterful chess move and one that appears to be paying dividends as talks progress.

Montreal Gazette: NHL labour board hearing postponed. Good news that both sides are staying focused on resolution in New York and not becoming distracted.

World Juniors news:

Sportsnet: WHL style of play may be key in Team Canada’s WJHC roster. Will it be finesse or grit that wins Gold at the World Juniors this year?

Friday Papers

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

Note: Don't forget that tonight Jets coach Claude Noel will be at the St. Vital Jets Gear store location from 6:00pm to 8:00pm where he’ll be available to personally sign your copy of “The First Season”.


Note II: Don’t forget to tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 from noon to 3 pm tomorrow. The guys will be broadcasting live from the St. Vital Shopping Centre.

Jets & Affiliate news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Time for players to cast ballots. As per usual the vocal minority are usually the leaders of the pack while apathy reins in the majority. Time for that to change! While it is nice to have good intentions to see struggling teams survive, fans in Winnipeg need to worry about this market and Gary indicates that this deal is best for the long term viability of the Jets.

Winnipeg Free Press: Players not surprised. The comment from Adrian Dater seems to sum up the process so far: “”We were ready to play again. But Don came in (Wednesday) and told us we could get more and to hold out.” As a result it appears some of the guys who have stuck around Winnipeg are starting to initiate their plan B’s.

Winnipeg Free Press: Chipman expresses disappointment at NHL talks breakdown. The response from the 4 owners involved (Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Winnipeg) were the most substantial we have heard from any of the NHL owners in the last 83 days and they were universally disappointed at the lack of success they had this week.

Illegal Curve: Statement from Winnipeg Jets Governor Mark Chipman. We have the entire statement from Jets owner Mark Chipman and a link to the other 3 owners statements as well.

Winnipeg Sun: Hainsey perplexed by NHL response. It is rather interesting to hear Hainsey say they were told that bringing Fehr back into negotiations might be a “deal breaker” considering the players are paying him to run their union. If true, it doesn’t reflect well on the NHL as it is hardly fair to put hockey players against ownership and expect it to be a fair dialogue.


Ottawa Citizen: Lockout standoff continues to amaze. Even the players were buying into the optimism says Ottawa native and Jets defenceman Grant Clitsome.

Wall Street Journal: Thomson Reuters Tie-Up Pressures Canadian Scion. If you missed this yesterday, the WSJ has an interesting read about one of the owners of the Jets. The site has a paywall but if you click Media & Marketing, you can read the article.

The Telegram: IceCaps are a hurting bunch. The joys of a long season is you can go from a plethora of bodies to short men in an instant.

CBA news:

Globe and Mail: Are players ready to roll over? Do you think we will see an uprising from the rank and file members of the union?

CBC: Implosion in NHL talks leaves players with few options. As always Elliotte Friedman ‘cuts through the baloney” and is today’s must ready column of the day.

TSN: The bizarre week of CBA talks. It has been a roller coaster of emotions for fans, players and owners alike who have gone from extreme highs back to lows and then back again. Unfortunately stay strapped in because the next couple of weeks will probably see more of the same.

Globe and Mail: Latest breakdown reminiscent of 2004. What is pathetic is that this has become about ‘declaring victory’ and not wanting to show weakness, in the form of compromise. Fighting for a fair deal is the right of any worker or employer but both sides need a reality check. The damage done to this game, if there is a 2nd lockout in 8 years, would be unmeasurable (actually having said that, both sides will be able to measure the cost in lost revenue/salary).

CBC: Don Cherry says he has never seen Bettman so livid. I also wasn’t left with the impression that the Commissioner of the NHL was putting on a show last night and if he was, he deserves an Oscar for that performance.

ESPN: Labor talks bring high drama. It is almost incomprehensible that at this point in the negotiations the shenanigans that are being employed by both sides are still regularly occurring. Looks like the best bet for hockey in 2012-13 will be a 48-game season which could begin around January 20th.

Saturday Papers

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

Note: Don’t forget to tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 from noon to 3 pm today. The guys will be broadcasting live from the St. Vital Shopping Centre. Guest: Ray Ratto (CSN)

Jets & Affiliate news:

CBC: Ron Hainsey: The NHLPA’s ‘bad cop‘? He certainly has become quite polarizing. How has your opinion changed (or not) of the Jets defenceman during this process? Let us know on site.

Winnipeg Free Press: Uncomfortably numb. From “cautious optimism” to “downright pessimism” this lockout has seen pretty much everything.

Winnipeg Free Press: Ready for takeoff. As much as coach Noel likes meeting with fans to sign autographs, you can bet that he would prefer to be back behind the bench coaching his team.


Winnipeg Sun: Jets lockout penalizes businesses. As I’ve been saying for awhile, these are the guys who deserve to be ‘made whole’.

Winnipeg Sun: Hainsey unsure how union gig will sit with Jets fans. Fans (at least those on twitter) seemed to turn on the Jets defenceman for some perceived slight on Thursday night. Reality is he has a job to do as Jets players rep, which clearly didn’t win him any popularity contests here in the Peg’, but one his teammates appreciate nonetheless.

TSN: Hainsey wonders where the NHL talks went wrong. He was candid with TSN after spending the last week quite tight lipped.

Winnipeg Sun: Lack of compromise in NHL lockout insulting to Canadians. Like many, I was absolutely glued to the television on Thursday night as the greatest soap opera on Canadian television played itself out in the most unreal way.

TSN: Atkinson helps Springfield beat St. John’s. The IceCaps had some new players in the lineup but it wasn’t enough to ensure victory for the Jets AHL affiliate.

Reporter Herald: Colorado Eagles break the ice in San Francisco. Who would think that at this point in the season the Jets ECHL affiliate would be celebrating their first road victory.

CBA news:

CBC: Bill Daly says he has ‘no new ideas’ for NHL labour talks. Standard tactic to get the NHLPA back to the bargaining table. The league does not want to be seen as capitulating once again to the players.

Globe and Mail: Beyond the smoke and noise, real disputes slowly getting solved. Same old tune and fans need to stop allowing themselves to be played in this same manner over and over again.

Globe and Mail: Owners have themselves to blame. For all the apparent unity within the 29 owners, reality is they are all competing with each other and once this mess ends, that competition for resources will renew.
