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.
Pretty close, except that we're pretty decent on size. Well, except for a goodly portion of our quality scoring prospects.

I don't think we even have any defensemen below 6'.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
