The first one is reasonable but I don't think it would happen.

While I don't necessarily understand it, the Jets see Antropov is a moderately valuable player going forward. Ponikarovsky was brought in, in no small measue due to his relationship with Antropov. Perhaps most importantly, the organization sees them as mentors for Burmistrov. Schroeder would be of interest to the Jets, but between Ballard's contract, lack of confidence, and the fact the Jets are more/less set on D, there isn't a good reason for the Jets to pull the trigger.

The second one is just a no go for the Jets.

Edler's contract status drastically reduces his value from the Jets point of view. Buff, for all his issues, seems to be one of the few guys that actually makes the Jets' offence work. Little may be a 2nd line winger to the Canucks, but last year he was the Jets 1st line center. Even with the addition of Jokinen they'll still need a lot of minutes out of Little on the 2nd line. He's a guy they really cannot afford to trade.
