If the Jets were to trade Byfuglien away, and I think they will eventually, it would most likely be for their areas of need. As a team with a young core they'd most likely be looking for youthful pieces as well.

The most glaring areas are three things:
A decently proven centre who can hold their ground as a 1C. I'm not talking elite 1C but capable of creating offence and setting up a high volume shooter like Ladd or Kane.
A youthful defensemen who plays leftside (rare case in the NHL for needs), who is tracking an ability to beat tough minutes and dominate the PK.
A league avg-to-above-avg goaltender (I'm not huge on Pavelec, yet)

Someone mentioned Vancouver's Kesler and Tanev... that's basically the idea, although I don't think we have any pieces we'd be willing to give up that Vancouver would want.
