Those who I'd send packing:
Jokinen - didn't work out, we have Scheifele next year
- trade to Chicago for maybe a 2/3 rounder
Antropov - waiver wire
Wellwood - not getting enough ice time
- trade to Vancouver for 4-5th rounder; they need a centre with FO skills
Miettinen - injured only 99% of the time, waiver wire
Wright - has shown nothing, send him to the waiver wire
Byfuglien - offensive potential but no defensive skills at all
- at high end, could likely get a late 1st rounder and maybe another 3rd for him
and Columbus has a large number of picks to play with
Hainsey - put on waiver wire and send down to AHL when not picked up; he may eat
minutes but his giveaways are a significant factor
Enstrom - injured two years in a row, he's 28 and will get more injury prone but he has
significant offensive upside and defensive skills
- could be marketable to a playoff team that need scoring from the D (the Devils/
Ducks are a perfect fit and we land a 1st and a 3rd for him)
Clitsome - to the waiver wire we go but he's not absolutely horrific on D
Pavelec - we have 2 buyouts, use one and get rid of his terrible contract and let's move
This opens up the door to adding some salary at FA again with Corey Perry and many others available when other teams will be cap stressed. We can also pay Bogo what he's worth on say a 6-7 year deal. Burmi, Wheeler, Little can all get locked up for 2/3 year deals. And we have several more draft picks to add to this team in year or two. We get instantly better on D and look for SCORING HELP in FA and the draft. That's draft and develop.
I if you were Chevy... Well I am glad you aren't Chevy because you seem to have no clue about player contributions of values. If the Jets actually did take too little on every trade and waive tradable assets then he would far and away the worst GM in the league. Not to mention I don't understand why he would make holes that can't be filled internally.
