What people don't understand with this  quantity for quality proposals is that the Jets don't need any more Wingers, be it veterans or young ones their top 6 is pretty much set, Cheveldayoff will want a center with potential, of course that's Larkin. I have high hopes for Mantha but he doesn't help them at all, they are already big up front and they have Laine coming in. Nyquist, Tatar does nothing to help them out. A goaltender? really they are transistioning to Helleybuck and away from Pavelec and people think they'll take on the contract of another veteran?

 

When I'm looking at proposals I'm looking at both sides yes it WOULD be very nice to get him for a package of Nyquist/Tatar, Marchenko + first but that's not what the Jets need so why would Cheveldayoff trade him for that package or why do some superfans think others wouldn't top that easily? If Edmonton offers Nurse + RNH how do you top that?! If Tampa offers Kucherov ? wheter people here like it or not but the price is going to be high and the only chance to match that is to offer Larkin I would be thrilled if Mrazek + a 1 st would be enough but that doesn't fix their center or defense problem if they trade him.

 


Nyquist, Marchenko and a 1st.

 

Doesn't help the jets at all only the first might be of interest but man I would lottery shield that pick.

I'm not one to get misty eyed over prospects, but moving Larkin fills a hole by creating another. Mantha or AA plus a pick and prospect is better and should be comparable to other offers

that's the problem trading him means searching for a potential number 1 center. The jets are loaded at the forward position and they have Laine ready to take a spot I guess.

sad part is other than Larkin I don't think the jets are interested in anyone.

No you don't, we are not talking PK Subban here. He wants Larkin, 1st rounder, and a roster player you laugh in his face.
You have to make the right move, making a trade for the sake of making the trade is just stupid.

I wouldn't pay Larkin, a first (at least not if he isn't lottery save ) and roster player depends on which one.
But people are dreaming if they believe the asking price won't be high he is one of the best young defenders in the game and will only get better. A guy like Chychrun would have been a handy asset now wouldn't it...

Kenny better be on line one and make that happen bring him home.

DannyD - Trouba as the top pair would be a nice draft

whatever the jets want you pay it

It's so funny people are naming great young defenseman but then won't give up the asking price. And the ducks would be stupid to move one if not their best defender.

Birth place for sure is important having guys from Michigan helps to form a bond quicker and fans can better identify themselves with the team. I mean how cool would it be to have Larkin or Danny D. to one day captain this team? That's special and something sports in general need to find again more local patriotism
