But like Dryden says, in no way do the Jets add in the pieces necessary to make the deal. The Jets need to build around players like Scheifele, as well as the draft picks / other players that would be needed to make this deal happen.

In regards to other offers, Scheifele + Kane, or Scheifele + Bogosian, or Scheifele + Ladd are all overpayments on Winnipeg's end for Kessel. Both Richards and Carter (from Philly), returned less, and are both better than Kessel.

Can't see the Jets doing that either to be honest.
To be fair it's annoying when people use this comparison on the board. Both Richards and Carter were traded from Philly for a vastly subpar return. This was done quickly to make a point, and is regarded as such.
