No quick fix for Jets

If you’re waiting for Kevin Cheveldayoff to pull the trigger on a couple of blockbuster deals and completely blow up the roster because the Winnipeg Jets are off to a slow start, it’s time to give your head a shake, take a deep breath and adjust your thinking.

It’s simply not going to happen, especially not eight games into an 82-game season.

Rumour mill churns full-time around Flames

Here they come.

LeBrun: I heard from sources on other teams Monday that Gauthier was phoning around looking for help on defense. The thing is, he’s not alone. Tampa and the New York Rangers are among the other teams also looking for blue-line help.
