from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, During a summer of relative inactivity, the local populace has become edgy -- a natural emotion when you consider that moves by their rivals in the Central Division appear to strengthen each of the other six teams the Jets are competing with for a playoff spot.

Home is where the Mark is

The smooth, unmarked, clean-shaven face gave Mark Stuart away on Thursday. It has been a useful summer of recuperation and re-energizing, the rigours and abrasions of opposition glove leather and stick tape and the marks left by flying NHL pucks long-healed. Most of that recovery and training time for the Winnipeg Jets' warrior defenceman has been spent in Winnipeg. And by...

Ondrej Pavelec could tie an ugly NHL record with another bad season

Since 2011-12, Ondrej Pavelec has allowed a lot of goals.

Evander Kane makes little sense for Predators

If the Predators want to get more offensive via trade, there's one more player out there who could help them. Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets is a young scorer who would complement first-line winger James Neal on the second line. If character wasn't an issue, Kane, a former 30-goal scorer who is just 22 years old, would be a great fit. Sadly, character is an issue for...
