Monday, October 3rd Jets Papers (with a Picture of the Official Jets Beer Can))

Monday, October 3rd Jets Papers

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets sign Scheifele to entry level contract. TSN just released the terms which would see the Jets 1st round pick earn $925,000, plus $700,000 in average bonuses, with cap hit of $1.625 million per season..

Winnipeg Free Press: So much more to life than stopping pucks. One has to appreciate the Jets netminderís outlook on life after last seasonís health scare. Now that his health concerns are behind him, he can be the workhorse the Jets are going to need him to be.


Winnipeg Free Press: Postma, Gregoire go with the floe. Getting some seasoning in the AHL isnít the end of your career, and it appears that GM Cheveldayoff has plans for these guys.

NHL.com: Jets ready to take off for NHL return. NHL.com gives its readers an assessment of the Jets team in their 30 in 15 series.

National Post: The East suits the Jets just fine. Some Down Goes Brown humour as they breakdown the Eastern Conference.

Winnipeg Sun: Decision on Scheifele looming. This kid is just having a great time with this experience and seems like he will handle any challenge (either Jr. or NHL) with that same gusto.

Winnipeg Sun: Jetsí Bogosian willing to battle it out on front lines. I was one of those doing a double-take in the press box. I leaned over to one of the guys and said ďIs that Bogosian as a forward?Ē. Gotta like the Jets versatility. Hopefully he improves his defensive play under assistant coach Charlie Huddy.


McGill Daily: Itís hockey year in Canada. With the season about to begin, will Winnipeg remain the darlings of Canada, or will the city become another rival to hate?

Globe and Mail: Puck ready to drop on NHLís season of uncertainty. The NHL might have some black clouds hanging over it, but the citizens of the Province of Manitoba are going to be partying all season long. I cannot overstate how electric the atmosphere is at the MTS Centre. We are going to be making our season predictions today and we want you to participate as well.

Winnipeg Jets Afternoon News

Winnipeg Jets Afternoon News

Winnipeg Free Press: 1290 becomes TSN Radio. Effective Wednesday, the brand switches over to TSN. Illegal Curve radio show merits a mention.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets ready to fly. Cool story on how the fan recognized Ladd and bought him a coffee. Really exemplifies ‘Friendly Manitoba’.

TSN: Jets sign first-round pick. He will earn $925,000, plus $700,000 in average bonuses, with a cap hit of $1.625 million per season.


Yahoo Sports: How the first two months of the season can royally screw your NHL season. I like the idea of the Jets being spoilers.
Quote:
The New York Islanders and the Winnipeg Jets. If they can get out to an above .500 start and remain there through the first two months, they could be spoilers. The Thrashers were notoriously fast starters; the Jets become an interesting case because early momentum could carry through the season thanks to the unparallelled enthusiasm from the fan base.
Arctic Ice: Mark Scheifele, or why an 18 -year old kid should be in junior. Our friends over at Arctic Ice Hockey also think it would be wise to let Scheifele develop further in junior. IC’s Richard Pollock wrote about this when he said fans need to ’Scheifele their expectations.

Jets Nation: SWOTing the Jets defence. An analysis of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats of the Jets.

Jets Prospects News:

Hockey Futures: 2011-12 OHL Eastern Conference preview. Might not want to count on Scheifele just yet but looks like former Jets 1.0 great Dale Hawerchuk is going to have quite the team in Barrie this season, including another Jets prospect Ivan Telegin.

The official Winnipeg Jets beer can

In case anyone was wondering what the "official" Jets beer can looks like, IC's Michael Remis just tweeted this picture from the press conference:



Does it make your thirsty?

Budweiser shells out big bucks for that. Looks tasty.

I agree. American beer sucks. People who drink US brands basically admit that they are spineless suckers for advertising.

At least it's not Coors Light.

I don't mind bud (not a beer fan either though) and would like to have a can like that sitting on a shelf in my new Jets Office. (Similar to a man cave - but my office upstairs... )

No worse than people who buy beer and put fruit in it or just buy beer with the fruit flavor already added.

DGB rules. I love that site. This Colin Campbell parody is good:



Here's more quality samples:

Tips for dominating your fantasy hockey draft

Quote:
When it's time to collect everyone's $20 for the prize pool, ask Terry Pegula if he'd be willing to kick in an extra $10 million up front for no reason. He usually agrees to that.
An in-depth review of NHL 12

Quote:
# In a nice bit of realism, the "Make an offer to another team's restricted free agent" feature is permanently greyed out. ...

# The game features goalie fights, allowing fans to send their team's top goaltender after a hated rival. Penguin fans can have Brent Johnson challenge Rick DiPietro, Bruin fans can have Tim Thomas pummel Carey Price, and Canuck fans can send Cory Schneider after Roberto Luongo. ...

# Players can now read and react to what's happening around them. Goalies read the rush and react by cutting off a cross-crease pass, forwards read the defence and react by overloading the zone, and Winnipeg Jets read the local newspaper's nightlife section and react by demanding a trade to Buffalo. ...

Finally, when you play for the first time the game will search your hard drive for any saved game files from NHL09. If it finds any, it will take the most pathetic team in the league and import half their roster as this year's Calgary Flames.
Offseason winners and losers

Quote:
Winner: Minnesota Wild - Revamped their roster by acquiring Dany Heatley and several other San Jose Sharks, whose well-known penchant for disappearing during long playoff runs is unlikely to ever be an issue in Minnesota.
2011-12 Season Preview - Eastern Conference

About the Southeast Division:
Quote:
What to watch: The awkward silence after self-proclaimed diehard hockey fans from the other four teams congratulate Winnipeg fans on having an NHL team for the first time ever.
About the Northeast Division:
Quote:
What to watch: The Ontario provincial election returns on opening night, since it may be the only chance all season to see anyone from that province win something.
