Wednesday, July 27 Jets Papers

Wednesday, July 27 Jets Papers

Winnipeg Free Press: Best words ever ‘Can I show you to your seats’. After waiting 15 years, when you’re finally walked to your new seats, it really is a special feeling.

Winnipeg Free Press: Got a spare room big enough to park a Jet. A number of players like Nik Antropov have already been in the city, touring properties.

Canadian News Wire: Scotiabank on board with AHL’s St. John’s. In addition to being a win for the Jets new affiliate, it will be quite the boon to hockey in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets ink Russian centre. While it’s a nice signing by the Jets, more interesting is the nugget that also appears in the story:

Meanwhile, a Russian news organization is reporting that winger Nikolai Zherdev wants to play for the Jets.
NBC Sports: New logo prompts Winnipeg Jets merchandise to fly off shelf. I’d suggest that a 15 year drought prompted the merchandise to fly off the shelves. They could have made the logo a seagull and people in this hockey mad city would have flocked to buy it. Remember that the Jets old logo still sells like hotcakes.

Around the NHL:

National Post: What the #!%*?: Is the NHL headed towards another lockout. After waiting 15 years for the NHL’s return, not sure Winnipegger’s want to see hockey stop, even if it meant the owners were able to get costs down.

Edmonton Journal: Northlands is viable, with or without the Oilers revenue. The President and CEO of Northlands suggests that the Oilers are nice but not solely responsible for the arena surviving.

Winnipeg Jets Afternoon Links

Winnipeg Jets Afternoon Links

Fort Francis Times: Byfuglien enjoyed his first FFCBC. The IC crew is hoping to get Big Buff to come fishing with us in Lake of the Woods this summer.

Fox News: Offseason assessment of the Southeast division. Can’t believe that Antropov is oldest player at 31. How do you assess Winnipeg’s chances are at this point in the season?

Game Rant: EA Sports 2012 Winnipeg Jets screen shot. Apparently this jersey showed up in the new game. Via IC twitter one of our followers (TheSamWladyk) suggests that this shot might just be Backstrom in a Capitals jersey which has been modified into a possible Jets jersey. We will need to ask IC’s technology expert Michael Remis for some follow-up on this.


Icethetics: Winnipeg Jets jersey concepts. As per usual, these guys produce some pretty cool concepts.

Around the NHL:

Arizona Republic: Glendale mum on life without the Coyotes. As Blues President John Davidson would say “oh baby”. With the interest of Matthew Hulsizer moving to said Blues, it would appear that the Coyotes might be down to often mentioned, tire kicker Jerry Reisndorf who has been referenced as a potential savior of hockey in the desert.

Sporting News: Mike Richards denies report of ‘lifestyle concerns‘. At this point it really doesn’t matter anyways. Both Carter and Richards have opportunities for fresh starts with new teams.

Doubt it, thats Tampa Bays old Jerseys, and if you look closely its Niklas Backstrom.

They already have a thread explaining that this is a dud.. it's a photoshopped image of a Capitals player. btw Those aren't actual players. They are CG'ed.
