The Thrashers were decent (ie. winning at a playoff pace) until the second half the season. We basically have the same team (Stewart out, Fehr in) so it's possible the team sneaks into the playoffs. Or the team misses completely and finishes 9th-15th.
Giving up a 2nd in a deep draft for a guy who is going to be a UFA in 1 season is a horrible deal IMO. Especially when you consider that our prospect depth is already one of the worst in the league. The Jets need to ADD more 1st and 2nd round picks, not subtract them.
