Why give up additional contractual control over Little for one year of Pavelski who will cost more in the future - IF you even are even able to extend him that is?

I get that San Jose needs cap help; guess what, that comes at a cost as well. No way would the Jets be adding anything under this scenario.
I guess I see your point here but I think Pavelski is better offensively than Little is. But defensively, I think they are close. I agree that in terms of base value, they are close to each other but I also agree with Pinkfloyd in that Pavelski's minutes are way less and he's been put in a more defensive role. I think the Jets would have to add a bit with Little to acquire Pavelski.

But again, I agree with the Jets not actually wanting to seek out Pavelski. I mentioned that in my first post that we have no reason to break up our LLW chemistry and then to not give Scheifele a shot at 2C. Just rambling here in sake of conversation

I personally wouldn't give up the guy who could potentially be our #1-2 defenseman for a guy who's generally seen as not living up to expectations.
