Seth Jones CHL rights were owned by Everett. He was headed for North Dakota. Jones told Everett to trade him to Portland or he was going to college. The WHL wanted Jones in their league even it was only one year. Everett wasn't going to get anything for the rights if Jones played at North Dakota for one year. The trade was made. Everett got 4 players in return. Three of the players are playing for Everett this season. The fourth player is playing at Cornell. Jones will be in the NHL next season. Tyler Wotherspoon(Flames 2nd round pick(11))will be playing pro hockey next season. There is a fit in Portland. US based team. Mike Johnston is an excellent coach. Johnston was suspended for the entire season by the WHL. Violation of team benefits. Ex-Islander Travis Green assumed Johnston's duties. If Regina wants to get something for Brady Skjei's rights,they won't have much leverage. The Rangers can tell Regina where Skjei wants to go. The WHL will want Skjei playing in their league. Jones and Skjei played together at the US program. Skjei is wrapping up the semester in the next few weeks. Rangers prospects camp will be in July this year. It will be interesting to see what happens.
