Bruce Bennett

Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Winnipeg Jets-related news and notes.

Hey all! Here is our feature running Monday through Friday that will bring you up to date on what's going on in the media pertaining to the Winnipeg Jets and elsewhere in the NHL.

Here is what's in the news for Tuesday, November 13, 2012:

More coverage on the dissolution between Ondrej Pavelec and Bílí Liberec. [WFP]

Robin Short chronicles the laundry list of issues currently plaguing the St. John's IceCaps during their sluggish start to the season: "The IceCaps have been shut out in three of their last five games, and very nearly made it four in five if not for Alex Burmistrov’s tally with 74 seconds to go in regulation time Wednesday night in Manchester, N.H., which wound up a 4-1 IceCaps loss to the Monarchs. They’ve managed to score more than three goals in a game only once in this young season, and their 25 goals-for are fifth-fewest in the Eastern Conference (and keep in mind, St. John’s has played at least two more games than the other 14 teams in the East). And then we come to the power play: in their last 39 man advantage opportunities, St. John’s has connected only once." [The Telegram]

Despite sitting third in the ECHL's Mountain Division, the play of Colorado Eagles' goaltenders has been overlooked amidst the teams' five game winning streak. That, and the fact Michael Forney could probably be a huge asset to the IceCaps right now. [Reporter Herald]

Mark Scheifele was held off the score sheet, but Team OHL relied on the stick of Ryan Strome who, with a goal and an assist, led them to a 2-1 victory over Team Russia. The series is tied 2-2 heading into the final two games featuring WHL stars. [Globe and Mail]

Trouba was back in action this past weekend and scored his team leading third power play goal in Michigan's 5-1 win over Michigan State. He managed an assist in Saturday's 7-2 loss along with another ejection for a hit to the head. [Friday Recap, Saturday Recap]

Hark! What's that off in the distance!? Why, it's a semblance of NHL hockey, as pure as a winter's snow. SB Nation covers the 2012 NHL Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies. [SB Nation]

The tragic story of how money ripped apart one of the most dynamic duo's ever to grace the NHL. RIP Hull & Oates. [SB Nation]

Michael Traikos explains why Adam Oates has the best Hall of Fame story. [National Post]

Perhaps a glimmer of hope from Steve Fehr and Bill Daly about the current state of negotiations: "I think one thing Bill Daly and I agree upon is that, when the moment is right, we'll get a deal done very quickly. One day, three days, whatever." Daly confirmed he shared the sentiment, but with a caveat. "This isn't all that complicated," he wrote in an email. "But the clubs feel strongly about these issues, and feel like they have moved a lot already. There's not much more to give." [Montreal Gazette]

An odd story given the timing of it but resident bandaid goaltender Pascal Leclaire has decided to retire from the NHL after a career mired with injuries. Et tu, Rick DiPietro? Speaking of timing, more Pascal Leclaire jokes! [Puck Daddy]

Finally, we close with a bit of good news as Blake Geoffrion has been removed from intensive care after fracturing his skull Friday night against the Syracuse Crunch. [HEOTP]
