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
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
The truth is that Ken Holland is probably playing golf right now - with his cell phone turned off... So I'm not exactly refreshing my twitter feed waiting for a trade to break.
My point with the Trouba scenario was that this roster can take on an entirely different look if we can land an impact (top pair) defenceman... Yes its expensive, but we have young assets and all of our draft picks to make it happen. And if it happens, it may not be any of Trouba, Fowler or Shattenkirk - as there are several players available or soon to be available that we don't hear about as fans (Shea Weber).
I have to think that he went into the summer with this many forwards to make a trade - with the very real possibility it doesn't work out.
