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 Friday, November 16, 2012:
Michigan Wolverines head coach Red Berenson has been vey impressed with Jets' prospect Jacob Trouba thus far: "He's been an impact defenceman, come in and played pretty well. I would say really well at times. But like any young defenceman, he's going to make mistakes. At some point, he tries to do too much but that's a good thing rather than a bad thing. As he gets more experience, he's going to be a terrific player." [WFP]
