Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Winnipeg Jets-related news and notes

Bruce Bennett

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 Monday, December 3, 2012:

Our friend Ed Tait talks about Evander Kane's KHL debut and some of the other pitfalls the NHL lockout has had to offer. [WFP]

More discussion from the Freep on Kane's shortened visit overseas: "To be honest, I never planned to stay over there for a whole year. It was a month-to-month contract... It's a different league. It's quite opposite of how things work in North America and that's a big reason why a lot of European and Russian players come over to the NHL: It's the best league in the world and nobody disputes that." [WFP]

If anyone actually believes the Winnipeg Jets will feel any kind of fan initiated push back after the lockout ends then they are stupid babies... [Winnipeg Sun]

... As evidenced by the large amounts of Jets' gear flying off the shelves. [Winnipeg Sun]

Hey, remember that three game winning streak the St. John's IceCaps were on? Well the Wilkes-Barre Penguins finally ended it. But hey, it lasted three games! [CBC]

A beautiful parody from our pals at Lighthouse Hockey: When Judge Judy mediates NHL lockout hearings. [Lighthouse Hockey]

The beautiful story of how a small Thai restaurant ties in to the grand scheme of the business of hockey. [Winging it in Motown]

Oh man, it's actually happening. The NHL owners are going to try to corner union reps in a boardroom sans legal representation present. This should end well. [SB Nation]

Cam Charron offers some beautiful NHL-themed Shakespearean poetry. [Backhand Shelf]

Finally, God bless you, Calgary Hitman fans, for the greatest teddy bear toss ever. [Puck Daddy]
