from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,
It wasn’t a declaration, but more of a memo from Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff to his rivals in the biz and NHL rumour-mongers everywhere:
Back off on the Bogosian-trade talk, s’il vous plait…
“I can’t really speak to what happened last year with respect to rumours, nor will I speak to any rumours regarding our team moving forward,” Cheveldayoff said. “What I can speak about is Zach is a tremendous kid. He’s a very young defenceman, and anyone who follows the game knows that defencemen mature at a different rate than other players.
“I had the fortune of having Zach on my team with the (Chicago) Wolves for about a week on a conditioning assignment when he was 18 and he was head and shoulders above everyone else out there when he was 18 years old.
The best is in front of a lot of these players, and we’re going to get a chance to watch them and hopefully (they) grow in front of our eyes.
