Jets’ GM Cheveldayoff: ‘Tough Decisions’ Coming This Summer

WINNIPEG — General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says an upcoming summer of “tough decisions” means changes are on the way for the Winnipeg Jets. Young stars such as Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor are due hefty raises now that their entry-level contracts are coming to an end, but the team was already near the US$79.5-million salary cap so some familiar faces may be gone to free up cash. “We have some tough decisions to make this summer, a lot of them,” Cheveldayoff said Monday after exit meetin...

Blues’ Improbable Run Continues

ST. LOUIS — Last in the NHL in early January, the St. Louis Blues keep making history and celebrating an unlikely run.

St. Louis Blues: 3 Notes for Success Against the Jets

As has become tradition in the Gateway City, the St. Louis Blues squandered a two-game series lead in the playoffs (this time against the Winnipeg Jets) and now find themselves tied at two, with the series returning to Canada on Thursday night.

2019 NFL Draft preview: If past decade an indicator, Vikings have draft approach for quarterbacks

Leading into the NFL Draft starting Thursday, April 25th, the Star Tribune will assess the Vikings roster, draft history and college prospects during this eight-part series. The Vikings' commitment to quarterback Kirk Cousins, a three-year, $84 million bet on the team's readiness to win now, has ripple effects throughout the roster.

Blues Must Move Dunn to Top Power Play

While the St. Louis Blues managed to escape with a victory after the first game of their best of seven series with the Winnipeg Jets, some troublesome trends emerged. Most significantly, the team’s power play looked anemic, going goalless on three attempts. One player stood out by his absence: Vince Dunn, the team’s most talented, young, offensive defenseman. Instead of deploying Dunn on the top power play pairing, the team decided to utilize four forwards and one defenseman. That strategy yi...
