Horvat to Capitals Trade Rumors, Penguins Go Red Carpet
WINNIPEG, Manitoba It was fun, even through the chaos of the “seat of your pants” practice. The Pittsburgh Penguins walked into the Winnipeg Jets practice facility on the outskirts of town to find a small locker room and a bustling youth tournament. The kids lined the runway like an Oscars red carpet. The boys couldn’t help but get excited, and practice reflected that. We have full coverage in the Journal. Also, Jacob Chychrun will finally return from injury, sparking another round of NHL trade rumors. And the Montreal Canadiens are being highly sought after, not by walking scouts, but by executives, which usually means real NHL trade talk.
I want to tell you how much this concert and your trust mean to me. Since there were no scheduled flights, I drove through the night of St. Paul to Winnipeg through snow, wind, cold and gas station sausage muffins. It was the same landscape for eight hours; a perfectly straight road with no scenic scenery, just flat land and snow as far as I could see. I usually enjoy an impossible challenge. This was no different as I arrived in Winnipeg just minutes before the Penguins 1pm practice.

Side note, not all markets are big enough for a Hockey Now outlet. We had a young writer who would call and email us every few months, pushing for a New Jersey Hockey Now. So we approached him, explained the financial constraints of the small market with his expected compensation levels…and never heard from him again.
