Winnipeg Jets
- Nickolaj Ehlers ($6m x 1 year)

Columbus Blue Jackets
- Damon Seversen ($6.25m x 7 years)

Winnipeg acquires a top 4 RHD with significant term who can be paired with Morrissey with identical cap hit. The contract term would also be beneficial for the Jets who have had some difficulty in the past with attracting free agents to Winnipeg. The Jets would have their top line center, starting goalie, and top line defense all locked in for the next 7 years.

Columbus has a logjam at RHD with Gudbranson, Seversen, Boqvist and Jiricek. What they lack is a scoring top 6 forward like Ehlers. Trading Seversen frees up a spot for Jiricek to be on the NHL roster next season and gives the Blue Jackets more financial flexibility to sign their top players to long term deals.

I would hope Chevy steers clear of that contract. It wasn't good when it was signed and will continue to look worse and worse all the way until Severson is 36.

Plus, Severson is an offensive defenseman that is below average defensively, the exact opposite of the type of defenseman Winnipeg needs beside Morrissey.

Ehlers should not be in play for that type of player and contract.

I like the trade. Gives covers both teams needs. Only downside is Severson is another small defenceman. But if the Jets could sign Dillon & Demelo Their Defense would look great.
Morrissey Demelo
Dillon Severson
Samberg Pionk.
Plus Ehlers gets re-united with his buddy Liane (maybe) . Ehlers has a M-NTC contract.

The Jets need at least 2 big, physical d-men not Severson.

Seversen is listed as 6'2" 202 lbs on NHL. com.

On the current Jets roster he'd be the 3rd tallest defenseman and their tallest right handed D.

Not sure you can call him an offensive defenseman when his best season of his career was getting 11 goals and 39 points 5 years ago.

But maybe this summer will be different and for once free agents will actually want to sign with the Jets and won't have to get overpaid to live/ play in Winnipeg.

It’s good value wise but needs wise not so much. Jackets don’t need another winger and Jets don’t need another offensive defensemen.
