Pretty sure Weegar would wave his NTC to move to a team that wants to win and has the tools to do so. Salary is pretty much the same.

26 May 2024 21:59:35
I think Chevy is smart enough to avoid that contract.

27 May 2024 17:12:20
Winnipeg adds, weager is worth quite a bit more. Signed on a great deal long term, a defenseman instead of winger and Ehlers will want a sizeable raise next season, then he's overpayed.

27 May 2024 23:01:08
No from flames.

26 May 2024 17:33:49

WPG would be smart to buyout Schmidt's contract.

Newhook gives Jets second line Center
Barron replaces Schmidt or Pionk. Cheaper.
Perfetti is a really good player. But with Lambert possibly making the jump to the NHL next year. With Jets not knowing where to slot Perfetti last year. They will really not know this coming season. Use him to get what's needed.
Jets don't have First round pick to use.
Barron for what I've seen can be a top 4 RD.
Morrissey Demelo
Dillon Barron
Samberg Pionk
JETS buyout Schmidt to resign Demelo and Dillon.
Perfetti would definitely get top 6 minutes in MTL.

26 May 2024 20:05:35
Winnipeg says no. There's no reason for the Jets to downgrade to Newhook to pickup a bottom pairing defenseman that will need to pass through waivers this year when they have plenty of bottom pairing defenseman and Barron isn't an upgrade on any of them.

28 May 2024 05:42:48

26 May 2024 16:12:34

BOS gets much needed help in offence
WPG get more size on defence and much needed grit with some offence.

26 May 2024 20:08:02
Easy no for Winnipeg. Bottom pairing defenseman and bottom sixers won't be targeted if the Jets move Ehlers.

23 May 2024 16:14:46
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.

23 May 2024 16:53:33
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.

23 May 2024 17:02:18
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.

23 May 2024 18:09:49
The Jets need at least 2 big, physical d-men not Severson.

24 May 2024 19:00:36
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.

24 May 2024 19:42:10
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.

23 May 2024 14:17:41
I don't know what truth there is with Ottawa wanting to trade Brady Tkachuk. But. WPG should be all over that. Perfect line mate for Scheifele.


I'm sure WPG would have to add like maybe Heinola or more.
But Connor gives OTT speed and scoring.
WPG get tougher/gritty and scoring.

23 May 2024 16:44:04
No way Ottawa would do this trade.

23 May 2024 16:55:36
I can't see Ottawa moving Brady, unless he demands a trade and if he does he won't be interested in Winnipeg.

23 May 2024 01:26:51
Detroit Red Wings
- Robby Fabbri ($4m x 1 year)
- Justin Holl ($3.4m x 2 years)
- 2024 2nd round pick

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

Ehlers - Larkin - Raymond
DeBrincat - Compher - Kane
Rasmussen - Copp - Sprong
Bergeron - Veleno - Fischer

Ehlers is rumored to be available and I know WPG is losing 3 defenceman to free agency and 2 are rightys.

If I'm undervaluing or missing any of Winnipegs needs, what can Detroit add/what do you think the ask would be for Ehlers in a trade?

23 May 2024 03:37:57
Detroit doesn't really have the pieces Winnipeg needs. The Jets are looking for a top 4 RHD or 2C with term or team control.

A quantity package of bottom of the lineup players isn't likely to garner any interest.

23 May 2024 13:24:59
Fabbri can at least be slotted in a top 6 role and do alright. Not what Ehlers can do obviously though. Holl however is awful. Yes he's a RHD, but the Jets would be better off getting a LHD to play the right side lol.

23 May 2024 16:53:13
I would hope that the Jets would get a better return for Ehlers then this one. They really need to improve their defense and getting a big, physical top 4 d-man should be their #1 priority.

21 May 2024 21:38:20

I saw this trade in an article. Thought it was interesting trade. I think it fits both teams needs. Pretty much same salary going over. Only thing is Ehlers is a UFA after next year.
But that would give NYI a chance to see if he actually fits their system. But pretty sure he would look good on their #1 line.
Ehlers Horvat Barzal.
Pulock gives the Jets a RH quality defenceman.

21 May 2024 22:26:42
Needs wise that works for both teams. Obviously the Islanders would need to be certain that Ehlers is extending at a reasonable salary.

I can't see Pulock waiving though.

21 May 2024 23:59:14
Pulock might, being from Manitoba. Closer to parents and family. Jets have pretty much same chance as NYI to win the cup. Gives him a chance to go home.
Could go after Bolduc or Romanov . Younger and cheaper. But can’t see NYI trading neither one away. Bolduc LD and even though Romanov is LD he can easily play Rightside. Most Russian D play both or opposite sides.

22 May 2024 02:03:07
Almost all defenseman can play their off side, but the Jets need that right shot. So, trading their best trading chip for a square peg when you have a round hole, doesn't make sense.

They shouldn't consider Bolduc or Romanov if the ask is Ehlers.

22 May 2024 17:21:39
I like this trade but would like to see the Jets include Pionk for either Romanov or Bolduc as part of a 2 for 2 deal. I believe that this trade would help both teams.

22 May 2024 20:40:09
Islandjet, Winnipeg can't really afford to make a lateral move of an RHD for yet another LHD. The Jets have nowhere to play them.

21 May 2024 20:49:50
I know WPG will hire Scott Arniel as the next head coach. But why not go outside the box and hire an outsider. Rikard Gronborg! Great Coach in Europe. He would attract a lot of Swedish free agents (Lindholm).
Also adopt a strong playing style that I think could/would compete in the NHL.

Crazy Yes. But thoughts?

21 May 2024 22:28:41
I'd like to see the Jets and the NHL in general look outside the box and start bringing in new blood, instead of just shuffling coaches from place to place.

22 May 2024 17:38:01
I like the outside the box idea as I really believe that the Jets have to go outside the organization for their next coach.
They should also look at Quenneville, I know he still has to get Bettman's blessing, or Gallant as they are proven winners.
If the Jets hire Arniel it will more of the same soft Jets that never take the body, play a passive penalty kill and predictable power play.

21 May 2024 01:28:55
Off the wall. But.

According to Montgomery Boston needs more Offence (can't win a lot of 2-1 games).
Carlo provides a strong RH defenceman. And Frederic adds much needed grit up front.

21 May 2024 03:50:51
In think Frederic is asking a bit much, but something around Carlo fills a need for the Jets at least.

21 May 2024 18:57:06
Ehlers for Carlo and a high draft pick would do it for both teams. This is a good, fair trade proposal.

22 May 2024 11:52:42
Ehlers for Carlo straight up would be a really good trade

20 May 2024 21:14:51
Habs trade for Chicago 2nd overall
Giving up : guhle , Roy and (Winnipeg 1st or Barron)
Mtl gets to draft demidov 2nd overall
And draft lindstrom , or a defence 5th overall

21 May 2024 04:01:47
If I'm Chicago I'm asking for more lol. You want that pick you're going to overpay for it.

22 May 2024 00:58:14
Roy is a equivalent of a 1st round pick
Guhle is a 1st round pick
Barron is a 1st round pick
Or Winnipeg 1st round
That’s 3 first round picks , I dont think it’s an underpayment

22 May 2024 14:54:39
Never said it was, but Chicago has all the leverage in a trade for #2. Why settle for that package when they could probably milk them for more?

20 May 2024 16:55:09
Wpg trades Ehlers

Det trades Seider

Good straight up or picks involved?

20 May 2024 17:30:23
Why would Detroit do that?

20 May 2024 21:05:22
I bet there is only 2 or 3 players in the league whose name would have to come up before detroit would ever entertain the idea of trading seider.

21 May 2024 00:14:12
Swap Seider with Holl and Detroits 3rd round pick.

20 May 2024 10:39:55
To montreal

kent Johnson

to columbus

wpg 1st
Jordan harris

20 May 2024 21:09:38
Done deal for habs!!

20 May 2024 02:15:36
WPG - Nikolaj Ehlers
PHI - Travis Sanheim

20 May 2024 13:23:35
Winnipeg says no. You're about 3 years late with this trade. Winnipeg has no need for LHD. Especially at the cost of their best trade chip.

Top 4 RHD is the biggest need on D.

20 May 2024 13:44:33
@memarcus, if I was WPG, I'd do this in a heartbeat. Sanheim is a great top4 dman. Having him and Morrissey on the left side of the 1st and 2nd pair would have you set. He's a pretty big improvement on Dillon, Samberg, Schmidt, Stanley or Heinola

20 May 2024 15:09:18
Matador, Sanheim is a good player, but he just makes too much money to be a 2nd pairing defenseman. The Jets have Samberg ready to take over the 2LHD spot and Heinola for 3LHD, so the left side looks pretty solid.

While Sanheim might be a bit better in the short term on the 2nd pair, he's not $4.85 mil better than Samberg.

The Jets are better off trying to find a top 4 RHD of spending assets.

20 May 2024 15:28:35
* IF spending assets.

19 May 2024 06:17:34
3 Team Trade Proposal :

WPG - Martin Necas

CAR - Jakob Chychrun

OTT - Nikolaj Ehlers

Brady Tkachuk - Tim Stutzle - Drake Batherson
Nikolaj Ehlers - Josh Norris - Claude Giroux
Ridly Greig - Shane Pinto - Dominik Kubalik
Boris Katchouk - Zack MacEwen - Mathieu Joseph

Thomas Chabot - Artem Zub
Jake Sanderson - Jacob Bernard-Docker
Erik Brannstrom - Travis Hamonic

Kyle Connor - Mark Scheifele - Martin Necas
Cole Perfetti - Gabriel Vilardi - Alex Iafallo
Nino Niederreiter - Adam Lowry - Vladislav Namestnikov
Mason Appleton - Rasmus Kupari - Morgan Barron

Josh Morrissey - Neal Pionk
Logan Stanley - Nate Schmidt
Ville Heinola - Dylan Samberg

Jake Guentzel - Sebastian Aho - Andrei Svechnikov
Teuvo Teravainen - Jesperi Kotkaniemi - Seth Jarvis
Jordan Staal - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Bradly Nadeau
Maxime Comtois - Jack Drury - Jesper Fast

Jaccob Slavin - Jakob Chychrun
Dmitry Orlov - Brent Burns
Jalen Chatfield - Scott Morrow

19 May 2024 13:10:25
While I don't see the fit for Chychrun with Carolina, I do believe Ehlers for Chychrun would benefit both Winnipeg and Ottawa.

19 May 2024 15:45:46
I'm not sure the Jets would look for a winger if they move Ehlers, but value wise that is pretty good.

Chycrun to Winnipeg doesn't work though as the Jets can't afford to spend their best trade chip on one year of an LHD they don't need, because if Chychrun won't extend in Ottawa, he won't extend in Winnipeg.

Really the Jets need a top 4 RHD or a 2C with term or team control if Ehlers is moved.

18 May 2024 00:52:08
Looking at the draft order and seeing that there’s a few teams that just had an off year. Mainly speaking about:

New Jersey - 10th overall
Buffalo - 11th overall
Detroit - 15th overall
Ottawa - 7th overall ***

I don’t know if Montreal will trade up from the 5th overall so let’s pretend they keep their pick and likely take at that point Lindstrom.

Seeing that Eiserman is project to go anywhere from 9th to 13th (I mean he could go second for all I know at this point) I would love to see him go to Montreal to have a 1-2 with him and caufield.

Let’s say we get to New Jersey’s pick (or really any one of the above mentioned excluding Ottawa right now), I think there could be something that could happen with one of those teams. I think Buffalo could be the key team here in a trade proposal if Eiserman is still there.

Thinking of two potential trades:

Montreal receives
Buffalo’s 11th overall

Buffalo receives
Winnipegs 24th-27th overall


Montreal receives
Buffalo’s 11th overall

Buffalo receives
Winnipegs 24th-27th overall

Looking at what buffalo needs/ wants, it’s a right handed defence-man. Looking at the first trade, they get a young right handed guy and a first round pick. It all depends on who is still around when the pick comes up but if there’s no solid right handed Defence, I could see them wanting Barron as all their Dmen are left handers.

Going to the second choice I think taking on skinners 9 mil for Anderson a 5.5 is a win for buffalo for cap plus they get a reliable veteran right handed Dman. Savard could mentor the younger guys and provide some stability for all the offensive minded guys. Anderson could use a change of scenery. Skinner could do really well in Montreal too. I believe a few years ago there was talk that skinner might get traded to Montreal. Now buffalo could be a bit closer to the playoffs but at the same time if Montreal gets Lindstrom and eiserman plus skinner, they could push for a spot as well. If Montreal is faltering they could trade away skinner as well at the deadline to a contender and retain salary for two years only.

18 May 2024 22:17:50
Barron and 24th overall for the 11th overall??? oh boy that's god awful

16 May 2024 14:34:19
Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2024(23rd overall)

Winnipeg Trades

Hearing Jets looking to unload Ehlers, if so Treliving should be all over it and with Ehlers on an expiring contract next season my proposal imo is about right.

Thoughts ?

16 May 2024 16:40:11
Why don't you have the decency to have the Leafs offer a fair package instead of players that haven't proven they can play in the NHL. If these 2 players are so good then the Leafs shouldn't trade them.
I would believe the Jets would say no as they are in a win now mode.

16 May 2024 16:59:01
Sorry Pinball, the Jets would be looking for a hockey trade involving a top 4 RHD or 2C with term or team control, even if they need to add.

The Jets have plenty of bottom sixers and replacement level defensemen, so neither player does anything for the Jets.

16 May 2024 21:53:37
Watch what happens, pinball will deny this proposal sucks because we all know that the one thing a stacked team like Winnipeg has been missing is the 23rd overall pick, a depth defenseman and Nick Robertson.

15 May 2024 17:04:33
Montreal receives

Mason Mctavish
Jackson Lacombe

Anaheim receives

1st round pick #5 overall
Wpg 1st round pick
Jordan harris
Luke tuch

15 May 2024 18:41:19
That's a pretty aggressive offer for McTavish. He fits with the age of the Habs and is already NHL ready. Interesting idea for sure!

16 May 2024 04:02:31
Imo. That's to much. I think McTavish, Carlsson are the building blocks that Anaheim will build around. So can't see Anaheim moving him, as well, can't see Hughes moving 2 firsts on the same guy. Even if one of them is a late 1st round pick.

09 May 2024 15:42:03
i know trade between leafs and Habs rarely happens but i think this could be a win-win

Toronto receives
David Reinbacher
Josh anderson
1st round winnipeg

Montreal Receives
Mitch marner
Roni hirvanen

09 May 2024 23:23:47
Marner to habs makes no sense for either team.

07 May 2024 15:42:47
How about

Heard about this one !

Jets need help on D. And need size.

07 May 2024 19:30:23
I can't see the Jets trading Ehlers for one year of an LHD to play behind Morrissey. They need RHD not LHD and it needs to be someone with term or at least team control.

07 May 2024 20:58:48
Chychrun can and has played right side. I get what you’re saying about term. But Chychrun would be a great addition to the blue line. Providing Jets could lock him up long term. Or a possible sign and trade.
I just thought this was interesting. I saw it on YouTube.

07 May 2024 22:54:26
I like it.

08 May 2024 01:58:59
Muzza, all defenseman can play their offside, Chychrun just isn't any good at it.

But the main thing is that the Jets need a right shot defenseman. They can't keep trying to jamb a square peg into a round hole like they have been doing over the part few years.

It's time to try something different.

08 May 2024 02:48:16

08 May 2024 20:49:33
When you put it that way. It’s really hard to argue your point memarcusjoe.
Really wish that True North could make some hard core deals. They run the Jets like a small team (business) . I don’t think you can run a successful NHL team (business) like that. Hard, harsh decisions have to be made.
I don’t see much improvements coming this summer.

08 May 2024 21:22:59
Chychrun plays the right side better than most lefties. I think if there's an extension in place it could be a potentially great trade. Maybe a little add from the Sens.

09 May 2024 11:54:21
Chychrun prefers to play on the right side. Similar to TJ Brodie.

07 May 2024 02:39:05

McCann goes to the net a little more and is better defensively.
Sign Pesce and Stephenson if possible.

Be nice to be able to trade Hellebuyck.
NMC in his contact makes it impossible. Or does it? Find the right move. ? Wishful thinking.

I was hoping that they would have traded Hellebuyck last year. Made Brossoit a starter.
Look at Brossoit's numbers. Not bad. Stamina would be the only question. Obviously have to find a quality backup.
Look at Hellebuyck's numbers. Great regular season stats. Poor playoff stats.
Personally think Jets made a mistake in signing him. Helps get to the playoffs. But nothing after that.

07 May 2024 13:14:46
I can't see why Seattle would do that and it's unlikely McCann waives for Winnipeg.
