Murat Ates of The Athletic: Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has just recently stated that he’s had an open discussion with goaltender Connor Hellebuyck which they will talk in person when he gets to Winnipeg. hasn’t discovered any proof that the concept of a short-term offer is closed. The Jets intend on doing a reconstruct, a short-term offer would be not likely.

If the Jets hang on to Hellebuyck and Mark Scheifele, they have a shot at the playoffs. They are much deeper than they were in 2015 upfront. If they move them, the return they get would figure out if they would stay playoff competitors.

Both Hellebuyck and Scheifele will be on the opposite of 30. For 2 or 3 years you’d anticipate them to continue to dip into a high level, however after that? At the trade due date, the Jets need to still have the ability to get an excellent return for the possible leasings.

The Jets have about $2.5 million in predicted income cap area, which number tasks to $10 million at the due date. That is another trade due date property. If they remain in the playoff race at the due date they might be in an excellent position to include.
