Overall can't complain with Danny's cap hit but I gotta wonder wtf holland is doing , aren't we significantly over the cap now with mrazek still to sign ? holland underestimated how much money it would take to sign these guys back

Just hope he somehow gets rid of Ericsson

Mark streit lmao forget jurco for streit if we get streit for free if be pissed offf , 39 yrs old during the season , 5+ cap hit for a 5'11 25 pt defensemen .... Ya makes total sense to get him instead of playing ouellet/sproul

If this trade happened and holland got the s*** kicked out of him by some fans I'd say he had it coming

LeftWinger, please provide a link to where any hockey "insider" has said that Fowler is Holland's target... I've seen plenty of speculation and sources saying that it would be a good fit, but I've yet to hear a single report that Holland is actively pursuing any specific defenseman... A forward, which I would assume would have to be Nyquist or Tatar, a defense prospect and a pick would be massive overpayment for Fowler in my opinion. Also, if Smith is going to be on the outside looking in (I don't think he would be), I'd prefer to move him in the trade. There's no way a guy that skilled should be any team's number 7 defenseman, and he wouldn't be on any other team. For whatever reason, this team has been terrible at utilizing some players the past few seasons...
nyquististhefuture, the Jets do have a solid forward group there, but Nyquist / Tatar would easily slot into their top 9 (likely even top 6) and make them even more potent up front. Trouba is a very good young defenseman, but they can't afford to keep him or Meyers on the bottom pairing any longer. Although I think he definitely will be, Trouba hasn't proven that he is a legit top pair defenseman yet. DeKeyser is a top 2, Smith is a top 4, and a 1st round pick? No matter what Winnipeg would want in return, that is massive over-payment. Not to mention it makes no sense from our perspective. The one defenseman that should be off limits in any trade to upgrade our backend, is the only defenseman we have that would be considered a top pair defenseman... I do agree that we may not be the best trading partner for Winnipeg, but I wouldn't be shocked to see one of Trouba / Meyers traded in the near future... Who knows, maybe Trouba wants out of Winnipeg. He is an RFA, and neither he or the team filed for arbitration. I'm betting he would love to be a Wing. Unfortunately though, he may have to wait another 10+ years before he can fulfill that dream...

I don't think we will trade dekeyser seeing as our big problem is defense l just saying what I think they'd want in return ... Unless we had blue chip defensemen prospects to offer, which we don't

I do think on the redwings he's a number 2 dman , don't know on most teams he would be ... I think he's a very good #3 dman but that's probably cause I see our a 1-2 being able to do it all and Danny's offensive numbers are limited

Drouin also wanted out of Tampa and he's sticking around, Unfortunetly rfa's don't have too many options and the jets know how great his potential is like anybody else and he won't go anywhere , I also checked and enstrom after this season has 1 year left on his deal so I can totally see him being bought out and trouba Myers byfuglien all 3 sticking around going forward , it just makes sense

Jets are also a budget team so can't see them dealing a top young dman for a nyquist at 4.75 when they got wheeler laine scheifele Conner ehlers perreault little and some other good young cheap forwards coming

Like you said the jets sadly aren't a good trading partner , ducks and wings are but sadly lindholm the one I'd want isn't going anywhere

I think you quoted the wrong person, I didn't say anything about Nyquist or Pulkkinen there... Although I do think he can be had for a similar package, as long as there's a defenseman going back the other way. You're massively over-valuing Trouba though if you think it would cost near that much... We wouldn't have to give up DeKeyser in order to land him, just like we wouldn't have to give up DeKeyser to land any of the other potential top pair guys rumored to be available...
Winnipeg probably don't want to get rid of Trouba, but they're going to be forced to trade one of Trouba or Meyers before the expansion draft. Byfuglien and Enstrom (NMC's) have to be protected and they can only protect 3 defensemen. If they wanted to protect 4 defensemen, they would then only be able to protect 4 forwards, which I'm sure they're not willing to do...
If we put together a nice enough package centered around Nyquist and add in a defense prospect, and a high pick, I think it could get done. It's a moot point though, since I don't think Holland is even looking at trade options right now...

Again ... Why would the jets want anything to do with nyquist? The offense is stacked in Winnipeg if anything they'd want is a leadership presence up front and nyquist certainly doesn't bring that

If there gonna lose a big dman like trouba I'm convinced dekeyer would have to be included as they'd want a really good dman coming back and we don't have any dman blue chip prospects to dangle and ouellet isn't enough,smith is a ufa in one year

I'm trying to be realistic , we won't land him with a Tatar/nyquist ... But like you said and what I've always said the chances of the jets trading trouba are slim , they'd part with Myers before trouba and I could be totally wrong but I do think enstrom would have only one year left on his contract? I can see them buying him out and keeping both Myers and trouba

If it's anyone, it's going to be Fowler. It is well known that Holland wants him. More than one hockey insider has said that's his target. Things could change of course...
I still think it'll cost us a fwd, D and prospect. It'd be nice if we could get away with a fwd and prospect D. Of course that would make Smith #7 again.

I'd want trouba over fowler ... Not the biggest fan of fowler but I think most everyone here should be prepared for us to land fowler , the ducks are looking to ship him off for upfront help and I think it's just a good match

Tatar or nyquist with a getzlaf gets 25-30 goals
