The Jets can be patient and add prospects and take the 2 or 3 more years to see how close they are.
But i like the moves the Kings made, moving young virtually unproven players for key support guys that helped win the cup. Boston did something similar, the year before with Kelly and Peverley - and Horton & Campbell prior to the season.
I look forward to when the Jets are in that type of situation, where a deal or two makes the difference in being a playoff team to a legit cup contender.
Those teams also had pieces to move. Most experts have our prospect pool graded among the worst in the league.
We would be moving Burmi, Scheifele & Postma in a package to get anyone good. That would cripple the team going forward.
