As I battle a cold, I’m also trying to prep for my epic welcome the Jets back bash for the home opener. I’ll be sharing some awesome recipes a little later. Getting the roster down to 23, conflicting reports about the old jets logo and its availability, Wheeler looks for a big year and Scheifele picks a number. These and other stories in today’s links.

The underlying narrative for this season will be the return of the NHL to Winnipeg. The league and it’s broadcasters are smart to capitalize on what will be the feel good story of the year. [Globe & Mail]

The Jets get close to the magic roster number and Tim Stapleton is injured. [Winnipeg Sun]

If you want any retro Jets merchandise I would suggest you get it now. There’s a good chance you won’t see it for a while as TNSE pushed the new look. [Winnipeg Free Press]

Here’s a conflicting story saying that TNSE has no plans to ice the old logo. But, if I had to bet, I would guess you won’t see as much of the old stuff for the next year or so. [Winnipeg Sun]

Blake Wheeler looks to build off his strong finish to last season. If he can stay healthy Wheeler could be an important piece to the puzzle. [Toronto Sun]

A good signing as the Jets lock up David Aebischer and assign him to the Ice Caps. [TSN]

Mark Scheifele picks number 55 to honor his brother. As each day goes on I find myself liking this kid more and more. I know I said I think he should go back to junior for the  year (and still do). However, I find myself pulling for him to have a monster year with the Jets. [Canoe]
