February 18th, 2019 Poor Winnipeg, always getting the shaft. If it’s not Ilya Bryzgalov complaining about a supposed lack of parks, or the San Jose Sharks ripping on Winnipeg’s climate and alleged poor WiFi, then it’s the rest of Canada ranking the Gateway to the West (“Winterpeg,” for non-politicians)...

For many NHL players, being moved to the fourth line would be considered a negative and something demoralizing. For Andrew Copp, though, it's been a positive and revitalizing. His move to the middle was key in creating what's been an extremely effective Winnipeg Jets' fourth line. New Year, New Role On New Year's Eve, head coach Paul Maurice rolled out some new-look lines. The new fourth line consisted of Copp — who had been playing left wing on the hard-nosed, yet offensively capable 'TLC' line, but had just returned after missing nearly a month with a concussion — back at his natural position of centre between 2017-18 AHL Outstanding Rookie award-winner Mason Appleton and sandpaper forward Brendan Lemieux. The rationale for this was two-fold, according to the Winnipeg Free Press' Jeff Hamilton: the first was that it would allow the fourth line to shoulder more defensive zone starts thanks to Copp's adeptness in the faceoff dot. The second was that it would allow Copp to...

It's that time of the hockey season where every team brings out their wish list for the trade deadline, and much like last season, the Winnipeg Jets seem to have a need up front for a second-line center. That may not be their most pressing need, however. When the Jets dropped three straight games to the San Jose Sharks, Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators between Feb. 5 and 9, they exposed some holes in their defensive game. Fortunately, this is the time of the season to fill those holes. Unfortunately, doing so does not come cheaply or easily, and the best option on left defense, Jake Muzzin, is already spoken for, thanks to the Toronto Maple Leafs. If the Jets want to acquire a steady puck-moving defenseman with experience, it will cost them. There is no doubt, however, that the Jets need exactly that sort of defenseman if they are to be a complete team. The loss to Ottawa, in particular, highlighted just how badly the Jets need an infusion of new talent on the...

In today's rumor rundown, there are updates involving the Toronto Maple Leafs, there is news on the who the Winnipeg Jets might be targeting at center before the trade deadline and it sounds like a decision will be coming this week on pending free agents Mark Stone, Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel out of Ottawa. The Latest on the Maple Leafs There is plenty of news and speculation when it comes to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The biggest surrounds defenseman Jake Gardiner and a couple of the team’s young prospects. Maple Leafs and UFA Jake Gardiner While on the Fan 590, Nick Kypreos said, “I believe if they can get in around $5 million, Jake has a chance to get an extension here.” It seems unlikely Gardiner would take $5 million per season knowing that on the open market he could get more, but on a shorter term, perhaps he says yes knowing that he'll be on a competitive team and still have a chance to cash in after those two or three years are over. A deal might be structured...
