Dustin Byfuglien talks about his defensive game: "It (his game) is a bit of a roller coaster, but for the most part I feel pretty good. Pucks don’t go your way, bounces, you fight it a little bit, but I seem to be able to come back and have a good shift afterwards and not let it hang on you." [WFP]

Claude Noel feels that Big Buff needs to add more consistency to his game: "It’s been like his game: up and down. It’s where we’d like him to be more consistent. He logs a lot of minutes." [Winnipeg Sun]

BREAKING: The Winnipeg Jets aren't good when giving up the first goal. [WFP]

Ondrej Pavelec is tired of answering your questions, mainstream media: "I'm going to be honest, I'm tired of answering those questions. You guys ask me every time how I feel when I'm not playing or I'm playing. I don't think it's a big deal that the goalie plays a lot of games. A lot of goalies are doing it. I don't see the reason why the goalie can't do it." [Winnipeg Sun]

Around the NHL:

Sidney Crosby will be out indefinitely after his now-fractured jaw ran into a Brooks Orpik clapper. [Pensburgh]

Welcome to Dan DeKeyser, the Detroit Red Wings newest defenceman. [Winging it in Motown]

Is Ryane Clowe the next NHLer to be traded? [SB Nation]
