Rapidly ageing Bryan Little receives a 6-year/31M contract. Yikes. 5.3M AAV.

He's been around forever (OG Jet, Thrasher vet), he only turns 30 in November. That being said, he's been unable to clear 60 games in recent seasons.

The Jets were finally rolling, but now Scheifele is out 6-8 weeks. Goodbye playoff spot...

I dunno, first game with Wheeler at center didn't go so badly.

Something still seems very much off with this team though.

The Jets' first-round draft record is pretty remarkable:

Scheifele in 2011
Trouba in 2012
Morrissey in 2013
Ehlers in 2014
Connor and Roslovic in 2015
Laine in 2016

Trouba goes to arby's, gets 5.5M. The Jets do not like him, they keep having contract issues.

About 24 of the 48 hours have passed without them agreeing to the arbitrator's deal. If they walk away, does he start from scratch with another team, or is that $5.5 million the starting place? I mean, I know he wants $7/year, but I don't know that he gets that, even on the open market.

He'd be a UFA which means that anything could be the conceivable starting point, but I'd almost guarantee he'd get more on the open market so Winnipeg will accept the ruling. Either way I think this marriage will end in a trade, neither side seems particularly enamored with the other.

These rulings are getting ridiculous. They just split the difference so often that some teams are coming in with super-lowball offers they know are insulting just to drive down the mean.

This lineup is unreal.

Connor - Scheifele - Wheeler
Perreault - Little - Laine
Vesalainen - Roslovic - Ehlers
Copp - Lowry - Tanev

Morrissey - Trouba
Chiarot - Byfuglien
Morrow - Myers

Hellebuyck
Brossoit

Conceivably they could deal Perrault and Little and still have a filthy forward corps and free up a ton of salary to boot.

They could use some more depth on the blueline, and I'm still not convinced Bro-Swah is an NHL goalie, but it's likely gonna come down to these guys and Nashville for the Central crown, and possibly the Presidents Trophy.

Patrik Laine is such a strange player. He's currently at 8-2-10 in 17 games, which is respectable but nowhere near what you want from your most talented scorer. I read he has yet to register a single point at even strength.

Vesalainen heading back to Europe. KHL?

I wonder if there was some fallout by not including him on the roster during their trip to Finland. Seems kinda dumb in hindsight that you scratched him in favor of Brendan fucking Lemieux.

Either way, if there was one guy I'd consider selling high on it's Mathieu "Two-Way Jesus" Perreault. Dude is an absolute force out there and signed to an insanely cap-friendly contract. But he's 30 and has missed significant time in the past due to injury. Then you free up a lineup spot for Vesalainen. But I suppose this is the "downside" of having an embarrassment of riches in your developmental system.

Their blueline is going to be a thing to watch. Unlike their forward corps, which has a lot of guys locked down long-term, the Jets don't have a lot of their defensemen signed for much past this season.
