Winnipeg Jets like flying under the radar as best NHL team in Canada

  Winnipeg Jets like flying under the radar as best NHL team in Canada Mark Scheifele doesn’t care if the Winnipeg Jets aren’t big news in Canadian hockey circles. While a lot headlines this season have focused on the success of Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs or the plight of Connor McDavid and the lowly Edmonton Oilers, the Jets have quietly climbed up the NHL standings.Winnipeg (16-6-4) moved into first place in the Western Conference with Friday’s 7-4 thumping of the Vegas Golden Knights and stayed there — tied with St. Louis — when the Blues lost 2-1 in overtime to Minnesota on Saturday night.

OTTAWA - The Trudeau government is adding a new requirement to how it picks the winners of major military contracts by assessing a company's overall impact on the Canadian economy.

The government is also launching a full competition to replace Canada's aging CF-18s with 88 new fighters, a move that comes in the midst of an ongoing trade dispute with U.S. aerospace giant Boeing.

"After extensive consultations and careful analysis as part of the defence policy review, it was clear that a full fleet of 88 planes are required to fully meet our Norad and NATO obligations simultaneously," Defence Minister Harjiit Sajjan told a news conference.

Innovative Design: Incredible passing key to Jets' lethal power play

  Innovative Design: Incredible passing key to Jets' lethal power play There are plenty of reasons why the Winnipeg Jets are flying high these days, but perhaps none more important than their success on the power play. With a win over Ottawa on Sunday, Winnipeg moved into a tie with Tampa Bay for the most points in the NHL (38), and the two teams are rolling at an almost level clip with the man advantage - the Lightning enjoy a 27.8 percent success rate, while the Jets barely trail at 27.4.Winnipeg's opening goal Sunday against the Senators came on a power play less than three minutes into the first period, and served as the game-winner. It also demonstrated lethal passing and a finish that's becoming commonplace.

"Our government will not risk-manage our national defence commitments."

Boeing has been eager to submit its Super Hornet to compete for the contract, which is valued at up to $19 billion and expected to start delivering jets in 2025.

But the government's change to how competitions are run could have an impact on Boeing if its trade dispute with Canadian rival Bombardier is still alive and ends up being deemed harmful to Canada's economic interests.

"Getting a new fleet of aircraft represents a once in a generation opportunity for Canada's aerospace and defence industries," said Procurement Minister Carla Qualtrough.

The Liberals are also officially abandoning a plan to buy 18 Super Hornets to temporarily boost Canada's CF-18 fleet, saying they plan instead to buy 18 second-hand fighter jets from Australia.

"We have received an offer for sale of F-18 aircraft from the government of Australia, which we intend to pursue, and we have received an offer of Super Hornets from the U.S. government, which we intend to let expire," Qualtrough said.

Officials briefing reporters on background say that while details are still being worked out, the used Australian jets will cost significantly less than Super Hornets and can be put into action two years faster.

Since Canada already flies a version of the same fighter jet, "the supply chain and maintenance lines required to support these aircraft are already in place," Sajjan said.
