You guys have 3-2nd round picks and 2 thirds. Including 2-2nd rounders in a Trouba deal plus a couple player/prospects is a drop in the hat for you guys right now. Leaving the draft with Hughes as you starting 2nd line Center and Trouba as your top pair Right D is huge.

Jets fans seem to be looking for a 2C; it makes sense. I'd like Trouba, but I don't think NJ is an ideal trade partner unless the Jets have interest in Zacha. NJ isn't giving them Hischier or 1OA/Hughes, so that's out of the question.

The only other alternative would be trading Smith. Unless Trouba is willing to sign long term, Smith isn't happening. I find it hard to think NJ wants to move Smith either.

He kind of reminds me of O'Reilly, who wanted nothing to do with Colorado and eventually got moved out of Buffalo. Trouba might have some teams he wants to play for - that means there's a great unknown with him, especially if he wants to be paid Subban kind of money. Maybe he's just not happy in Winnipeg or maybe he has character issues. I won't pretend to know.

The guy I'm looking at is Nolan Patrick from Philly: I could see a swap there, especially if Philly are real about wanting to move Gostisbehere.

Appently he doesn't want to play in Canada because his dad has a criminal record and can't enter Canada. Also would prefer to play on the east coast according to jets fans.

The Jets would want a very good roster player plus a #1 pick or an "A" prospect for Trouba. Having more than 3 teams in the same conference wanting Trouba means they will overpay to get him and to keep other teams from getting him. NJ possible offers mentioned here won't do it to get Trouba from the Jets.

Let’s turn this into a blockbuster:

To NJ: Jacob Trouba, Nikolai Ehlers, Adam Lowry

To WPG: Damon Severson, Taylor Hall, one of NJ 2nd round picks

This deal wouldn't happen as it not nearly enough from NJ for those three players. Also it does not improve the Jets as they can get much better deals trading them individually. Plus Hall will want more money to resign then the Jets have cap space for.

Comparable trades:
Adam Larrson for Taylor Hall
Seth Jones for Ryan Johansen

This is the type of trade the Jets are looking for. Trouba is being way under-valued in all the trade proposals (not just this post) Quality over quantity - Jets need a 2C, unless other pieces are added to the deal, which is highly possible with Chevy’s track record.

Na wouldn't trade 2 2nds AND and a prospect for this guy screw that..rather keep it and see what ty becomes..would not give up bratt, NJ is not far off from a good team the real key is goaltending imo the defense is underrated really don't want to give up a top 6 forward

NJ's best defenseman and the MVP of the league is "not nearly enough" ? Wow.

Not giving up Smith for Trouba. I get it, Trouba is "great".. but I like what we saw from 18y/o Smith last year. I'm not giving up Smith, Nico, Hughes.

would we do Hall for Trouba straight up, if Trouba re-signs here? Trouba is only 2yrs younger. Hall is 27.. so it's not like he's "old". He's in his prime, and worth re-signing. Hischier will be entering his prime soon, and it's not the worst thing in the world to have a few rookie studs on the team in Smith, Hughes, Boqvist, etc in the next few years.

I think some of us, including myself, debate on Hall because of his age. He'll be 28 in November. He should be elite for at least 4 more seasons, and then still a 70+pt player for another few, while Hughes takes over as the 80+ pt guy. It could work, and I think worth keeping over Trouba.


This is all on the assumption that Hall is an option to bring back, verses him denying a deal, in which case you obviously trade him.

I have to think the Rangers are likely to get this done since they are sitting with Winnipeg's first rounder they got for Kevin Hayes and have a lot of other assets they could trade. They aren't in quite as good a cap situation as NJ but this is the type of move they'd likely go balls to the wall on.

would we do Boqvist + Bratt for Trouba? WITH some of our picks?

You gotta lose some to get some. Bratt + our early 2nd won't get it done.

Severson + Bratt for Trouba? Vats+Bratt+2nd? hm.

Severson is on the books for a pleasant 4mil for the next 5 seasons. Vats only has next season left, so he won't have as much value in a trade as Severson.

I'd love to send Wood the other way in a deal.

Trouba and Smith in our top 4 would be a nice foundation. Severson in there wouldn't be bad, but do you feel confident when you think of Severson? eh. We'd need a 3rd guy in that top 4. Severson, to me, is a #4 dman. Smith or Trouba would be his better half. But we'd need someone to play on the top pair next to Smith/Trouba.

Ray could take advantage of ALL the cap room we have with Hughes, Hischier, Smith, and whoever else that will be on ELCs. It's a gamble to go all-in this year or next because the kids are just that and maybe not worth to take the risk on being more than that in this year's playoffs.

Nico has 1 year left, Blackwood has 1 year, Smith has 2 years, and Hughes.. 3 years? They won't get huge deals off the bat, but they'll definitely eat up at least 15mil pretty soon. Zajac off the books after seasons will help.

so.. we couuuld spend smartly while we have the room.

Bratt and Boqvist doesn't really make sense for a team looking for help up the middle or a replacement on D. The Jets are pretty wealthy with wingers having Ehlers, Wheeler, Laine, and Connors.

Just about every trade proposed here is ridiculous. People here have lost their minds. Let some one else (looking at the Rags) overpay for this guy. He is NOT worth what they are seeking. Move on Devs.

True. Would be lovely if they'd take Zacha, McLeod, Wood and our 2nds for him.
There's your center help lol.

Somewhat agree with this. Bratt doesn't make sense as they already have a lot of highly skilled wingers. Boqvist, makes some sense as they could flip him or decide to stand pat with Scheifele, Little, Lowry and Copp as their C depth and let Boqvist develop.

NJ not having a first hurts them for this trade. I could see the Jets taking a RHD as part of the package (Severson) as they having nothing behind Buff currently. Word in Winnipeg is they are trying to include either Little or Perreault as part of the package. Also, Roslovic could be had, but a first or higher end C (higher than Zajac) would have to be included.

So in saying that, maybe Winnipeg would look at something like Trouba and Perreault for Severson, Boqvist, Wood and two seconds. But honestly I don't see these two teams being a good match for a trade.
