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, April 10, 2012:

General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff is open to the idea of trading Winnipeg's first round draft pick: "One thing I will not do is mortgage the future but if I can accelerate the future, I will gladly do that." [WFP]

Ken Wiebe gives his final quarter and overall grade on the 2011-12 Jets. [Winnipeg Sun]

Jets RFA's and UFA's offer their thoughts on the city of Winnipeg. Said Jim Slater: "I've nothing bad to say about the team. Definitely the management here, they want to win and will do anything to make it that way. That's obviously very appealing. I know these guys very well, been with them my whole career. That's obviously another plus. Hopefully it's something we can talk about in the summer." [WFP]

Zach Bogosian reminisces on his first year in Winnipeg. [Winnipeg Sun]

Gary Lawless interviews part-owner David Thompson. [WFP]

Mark Chipman believes that following the Nashville Predators model will be best for the Jets future. So, what about when their team gets decimated next year? [Jets Nation]

Six questions that should be asked heading into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Question One: "Will this be the best Battle of Pennsylvania ever? It's the series everybody in the NHL hoped for -- except perhaps those who both have a rooting interest and value their health. The Flyers and Penguins will do battle in the playoffs for the third time in five years, and there's no doubt the teams will build up quite a bit more hatred for one another as this series likely stretches to six or seven games. But this year is much, much different than years past for two very big reasons: Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot." It's going to be awesome! [SB Nation]

Finally, Ellen Etchingham on hockey fandom. [Backhand Shelf]
