Found it interesting that Chevy and Zinger were 'keenly interested' in watching Trouba at the WC's. And were especially happy with his play and the responsibility he was given on the 1st pp unit. Sounds like he's being penciled in on the Jets pp for next year.

Also, I wonder if the Jets are thinking now is the time to move Buff - if that is the plan one day - or do they wait until the start of the season to make sure Trouba is NHL ready? Would a RH d group of Bogo (assuming he's re-signed), Postma (limited NHL experience), Redmond (even less NHL experience), and Trouba (no NHL experience) be what they want to start the season with? Wonder if a Clitsome, Meech, or even Hainsey (though that's a long-shot at best, imo) is re-signed just as NHL-experience 'insurance'.

A Buff deal is best when he's still marketable and you have replacements, in-house, to step in. Jets might be close, but not quite there.
