With re-alignment moving the Jets to the West, the fact that they are currently in the division is irrelevant to any trade involving long-term contracts (now, with pending UFAs like Antropov and Hainsey, that's a totally different story). BTW, this also opens up the door to a trade with Tampa Bay or Florida, as they won't be in our division next year, and are too far back to catch up with us this season.

Another option for acquiring a defenseman may also be the traditional "buy-low" strategy, going after a young roster defenseman that are potential late bloomers for mid-low picks and B-Prospects. Examples of such are:

Keith Aulie (Tampa Bay)
Korbinian Holzer (Toronto)
Yannick Weber (Montreal)
Jonathon Blum (Nashville)
Adam McQuaid (Boston)
Grant Clitsome (Winnipeg)
