I think that for Trouba, he either signs a 6ish year deal with Winnipeg or the team that Winnipeg trades him to, if he is traded. Or a sign and trade type of thing. I think he will get a deal before he becomes UFA.
Trouba's value is at a peak right now, so I am expecting him to be dealt at the draft ... or sign long term for the Jets. Neither would surprise me but if he is moved, the return has to be huge. I'm not saying Lindros Huge but the Jets will need either a 2nd line centre (Trochek) or a blueline replacement for him (Ekblad) plus maybe a couple other parts on either side of the deal. Personally I really like Huberdeau. But I don't see him being moved.

A couple Jets fans chimed in last week with some similar thoughts into Trouba, Meyers, etc.
Always appreciate getting the insight from the fans of other teams
I could def see Trouba going down one of the avenues you listed. He had an incredible season. I thought Winnipeg was pretty solid defensively (both current roster and in the system), but it sounds like they would possibly want a replacement for him if moved?
What do you think is more needed for the Jets right now: a more cost-effective replacement on the blueline (I don't think that would be Ekblad, but maybe?) and some pieces or a 2C with some pieces?
