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.
The D group will without a doubt get worse without Big Buff.
I wouldn't wanna bank on Trouba, Postma or Redmond handling tough minutes as well as he can.
I think the most likely scenario is that the Jets keep em all and one of Bogo, Trouba, Redmond and Postma is worked in on his off hand.
Trades are a possibility, but they are a lot easier to make in arm chair GM fantasy land than they are in real life.
