to winnipeg
Madison Bowey

to Det
5th round 2021

Bowey played 36 games as Morriseys defence partner in Kelowna and they looked pretty good and comfortable together

worth a shot to have morrisey play with someone familiar until winnipegs figures out thr RHD situation. not giving up much to give morrisey someone he's had success with.

Wasn’t Bowey on waivers or am I mistaken? I’m thinking he could be bad for practically nothing.

10 Oct 2019 15:53:12
@Ebs, Bowey wasn’t on waivers at all. Detroit got him as part of the trade with Washington for Nick Jensen.

@Craigger, What’s Poolman’s upside? I haven’t really seen him. So I can’t judge whether I like this or not.

10 Oct 2019 15:59:28
Lol. The Jets are adding to the better defenseman to get the worse one.

10 Oct 2019 16:08:27
Poolman and Bowey are from the same draft year. however, poolman is a year and a bit older. As a prospect Bowey had much more upside but as they developed it appears they are pretty even in their abilities. both are nothing special but put in right circumstances they could very well strive more than they have. they also are both the same size. You lose or gain nothing with this deal except Bowey has played with morrisey before so could be a better fit than poolman in winnipeg. Due to Bowey being a bit younger that's why the 5th is included.

10 Oct 2019 16:38:27
actually these 2 dmen are pretty close in how they play. no real downgrade or upgrade for either team. what winnipeg is adding is bowey is younger by a year and a bit. that's the value here. bowey has more upside. may not be a lot but its enough to add a 5th rounder.

10 Oct 2019 16:43:08
Bowey's trade value may be low at this point in the season, and with Detroit having Daley and Ericsson on IR I believe he's more valuable to the team than he would be at the trade deadline.

Hold onto him until February and if contract negotiations don't produce anything by then, perhaps trade him at the deadline.

10 Oct 2019 16:57:36
Okay Craigger, that's fine. Winnipeg still says no though. It's not worth giving up a 5th for a 6/ 7/ 8 defenseman. We have plenty. The Jets need top 4D, not bottom pairing guys and press boxers.

10 Oct 2019 17:18:30
Maybe a poolman for Jack Johnson trade could be worked out to appease the Jets faithful.

10 Oct 2019 17:36:35
How about Ristolainen as a top 4 Dman? confusion settles in.

10 Oct 2019 17:57:04
The Jets would be better off keeping Poolman as he is playing now and the team doesn’t need another 6/ 7 d-man.

10 Oct 2019 23:05:41
@Craigger, Thanks for the insight into Poolman. While as you mentioned the difference between the two isn’t much, from a Detroit perspective we may just keep Bowey then. There’s incentive for the Jets in terms of him being a RH Dman and playing with Morrissey.

For Detroit, I don’t see a 5th being really a major add at this point. So in terms of trading Bowey, I like DRWDave’s approach of waiting until Trade deadline to see best deal available.

Overall a good post but rather aim for the highest return possible.

no problem. i can see where you are coming from and great response. both sides seem to not want this deal. lol. it happens.
