Even with that contract and extensions for Little, Bogo and Wheeler, Jets would still be hovering around mid-cap territory.

Have to say, as much as these Columbus-Winnipeg trade proposals have been very civil and reasonable, I'm not sure we're the best trading partners. Winnipeg has a slight surplus of offensively skilled defensemen, gaps at C and RW in the top 6, and lacks overall team size. That seems to be about the same as Columbus.
