There's no mention of it in the OP, but would the Islanders' 2015 1st be in play?

A deal that could work for both teams is Byfuglien and maybe one of Klingberg/Sutter for Nielsen the 2015 1st and Anders Lee. Even then, I think long and hard about it, but most JETS fans will likely say NO pretty easily. Guess it all depends how well the Islanders improve as the range for that 2015 1st is what can tilt the scales.

Buff is criticized by many on these boards, but he has made great strides in becoming more defensively aware and his pure offensive instincts coupled with his sheer strength are what really makes him so valuable. He'd be a great addition to the Islander's attack. Is he a perfect player? No, but when he's on your team, you do appreciate the things he does so well.

If it weren't for Bogo and Trouba, it would hurt too much to deal Buff. Winnipeg's crazy depth at R/H defense is what makes him expendable. He's got 2 more years on his contract after this one.
