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.

Here are your headlines for Wednesday, February 1, 2012:

Ed Tait on Winnipeg's victory in Philadelphia: "This isn’t an easy town for anybody in enemy colours, be they Giants or Cardinals, Celtics or Penguins, Apollo Creed or Santa Claus. And so when a visitor can escape with a victory — as the Winnipeg Jets did Tuesday night courtesy a 2-1 shootout over the Philadelphia Flyers — then it’s cause for a little celebration, short-lived as it may be."

Up to date NHL Conference Standings. Don't look now but Tampa Bay is getting hot in the Southeast! []

Gary Lawless pens article "Jets Fans Love Big Buff" in which little is discussed on how fans perceive Byfuglien but rather his Lawless' opinions on Byfugilen's summer transgressions with the law and his commitment to a fitness regiment: "There's no question he's an all-star, but Byfuglien could be elite. One of the game's top five defencemen -- mentioned in the same breath as Shea Weber and Zdeno Chara. Not, however, unless he discovers a way to reach a higher level of fitness. Elite doesn't happen for players in so-so shape. Byfuglien can't be too gassed to get back in the play after a rush and he can't use game action as his conditioning regime. He needs to commit to an off-ice program that takes his game to that next level." Zing. [WFP]

Evander Kane has been silenced on Twitter by the Jets amid rumors and speculation of his off-ice lifestyle. [Winnipeg Sun]

The Winnipeg Jets really need more Cam Charron's writing for them. His take on the Trade Deadline: "Cheveldayoff isn't the type to string together a bunch of assets to lure Shea Weber to Winnipeg for a few months. His quotes from the story sound like something right out of Moneyball, and Billy Beane's second rule on making trades: "The day you say you have to do something, you're screwed. Because you are going to make a bad deal." " Spot on, right there. Arctic Ice Hockey will have a ton of juicy trade deadline items for you including a Trade Deadline Day Live Chat. [Jets Nation]
