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, December 11, 2012:
Gary Lawless sure knows how to start off an article: "Go ahead and boo Ron Hainsey. But do it because he's a soft, overpaid defenceman and not because of his union politics." Credit where credit is due, Lawless knows plenty about being soft; an expert in the field. [WFP]
Bryan Little expresses his disappointment over the cointinued lockout: "I was really disappointed. Listening to Don talk, for the most part it was positive and first and then he came back and it kinda went downhill from there. And then when Gary came up it didn’t look good and you could tell he was frustrated. When he was talking you could tell there is still a lot of work to be done and there’s a huge gap still." [WFP]
Mark Scheifele is looking to make amends for last year's failure to win gold at his first World Juniors: "It wasn’t what we wanted. It was very disappointing. Having that happen to you, I definitely think it makes you stronger. You don’t want to go through that feeling again. You want to get the gold that much more." [Calgary Herald]
