Elliotte Friedman had some comments regarding Matt Duchesne in Colorado ...."18. Duchene was benched March 22 (played only 7:21 vs. Phoenix) then saw almost 15 minutes two nights later. But then his time-on-ice falls off a cliff. Average for the final five games: 11:40. You can sense an uneasy relationship between he and Sacco. The Avalanche dealt Chris Stewart out of nowhere. If they think Sacco is the right coach, what do they think about Duchene?"

This could be a opening for Winnipeg , I would certainly be interested to see what may be the asking price , Colorado is also without their first round choice this year , which may come into play , as Chevy said he would not be adverse to trading to speed up the process. The return obvioulsy is the key. Interesting story to keep on top of , imo.

an 18 year old getting benched? never heard of that before...

I bet Colorado will have zero interest in trading Duchesne.

Unless it is some ridiculous over payment like our 1st bogo and kane...

Duchene is 21 years old. He put up good numbers in his first two years and is decent defensively, I don't think the Avalanche give up on him because of one injury shortened season. It would likely take Enstrom+

He could be a very good fit for Winnipeg , he won't be given up on or given away but he may not be the right fit in Colorado for whatever the reason(s) . IMO he can be a legitimate number 1 C , he would look really good going into next season penciled in that slot , just at what cost.

I think if he actually is available or could become so , Winnipeg would be very intrigued imo.

That would be fine with me , they also don't have their first round pick , if someone is sitting at 9 that the Avalanche love and have highly rated , that could be the cornerstone of Winnipeg's offer .

Cornerstone of Winnipeg's offer? I am sure Colorado would jump all over that.

1. Why? And for what return? No thanks, Enstrom is going to turn it around big time next year.
2. He won't sign here, and I wouldn't offer for him.
3. Ceci or Trouba, I'd definitely be in favour of picking a defencemen at #9.

No comment.

Usually ignore it unless they provide solid backing. I also don't meant the ranting and rambling kind.

To further my post from the season review thread here are some moves I think would benefit the team and compliment the team we already have.

($$ in 2012-$$ in 2013-$$ in ect)

Buyout:
Antti Miettinen (500K-500K)
http://capgeek.com/buyout_calculator...06&buyout_d=15

Resign:
Slater 4.2M/3 (1.6M-1.5M-1.1M)
Glass 2.85M/3 (1.050M-900K-900K)
Mason 2.8M/2 (1.6M-1.2M)
Kane 4.0M/1 (4.0M)
Fehr 1.1M/1 (1.1M)
Pavelec 13.2M/4 (2.8M-2.9M-3.5M-4M)
Mach9 850K/1 (850K)


Trade:

To NYI
Ron Hainsey

To WPG
2012 2nd
2013 2nd

Why: Hainsey is the perfect fit for the Islanders high cap hit, low salary, left handed all fits what they need. The Jets save 3M and can continue to add to the depleted farm system with the 34th pick and another likely high 2nd rounder.

TO CGY
2013 5th

TO WPG
Blake Comeau-RFA-sign 2.9M/2 (1.6M-1.3M)

Why: Has not worked out in Calgary played on the 4th line most of the time unlikely the Flames give him a QO may as well get a pick for him. Jets get a high upside winger with decent size who can PK and has a track record of being able to play tough minutes, also a RH shot.

To TOR
Nik Antropov
2013 3rd WPG
2013 3rd CHI

To WPG
Tim Connolly (4.00M)
Matthew Lombardi (3.5M)
Korbinian Holzer-RFA-sign 1.9M/2 (.9M-1.0M)

Why: Burkie is in a bind and this move helps him clean up his own mess, unlike with Finger these are both contracts ether signed or acquired by Burke, I see no way he can berry them in the minors especially with a new ownership group. While he might be able to move Connolly on his own Lombardi has no value so by taking him Jets get a discount on Connolly. Connolly is another guy that can eat the tough minutes he is another RH shot and is a UFA after this year.

UFA signs:
Jason Garrison 20.5M/5 (3.5M-4M-4M-4.5M-4.5M)

Why: Garrison has for 2 years now played some of the toughest competition in the NHL and done quite well with it, FLA seems willing to let him go as well. His offense is not going to stick at 15+ goals but 4.1M for a true shutdown D with size is still a solid deal he finalizes the top 4 and 2nd PP unit.

Call ups:
Cormier (855K)

Total $$ on new/resign players
27.885M
Total $$ on returning players
27.35M
Total $$ on NHL 23 man roster
55.235

CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $9,244,542

Tons of salary room to give Toby, Wheeler, Little, Burmi, and Kane raises as well as lots of financial flexibility for the 2012/13 UFA class. 8.25M in cap space opening after the 2012/13 season as well with Connolly and Lombardi off the books, may even be able to move Lombardi out during the season for a pick. Leaves the Jets with 1st, 4 2nds no 3rds in 2013 draft.

Still need to add a 1st line C and a 2nd line RW but this group looks a lot stronger to me than this years.

Good Work Wpgpage.

Although I wouldn't do your Leaf proposal in a million years.

Both Connolly and Lombardi are toxic assets that Burke will need to get rid of if he wants to sign any free agents.

The Jets should be getting a deal to take them off his hands, not the Leafs getting a good prospect in Klingberg / Postma, AND two picks.

I think most Leaf fans would be happy giving away Lombardi for a late pick, and with Connolly's production and salary it shouldn't take much more than that to get him either IMO.

Winnipeg picks 9th , Colorado doesn't have their first , if a player slides they had rated 5th or 6th and absolutely love , which isn't a stretch , why not? I did not say straight up , I said cornerstone , Duchene is obviously not seamlessly fitting in for whatever the reason(s) and he was a 3 overall pick . Pick nine plus could certainly get conversations going if indeed Colorado are open to moving him, which is the key of course.

good stuff, but how can we sign fehr at 1.1M?
His qualifying offer has to be 2.2M

55 points as a rookie (24 goals) and 67 points in his 2nd season in the NHL is big time production. He has had a terrible season this year and missed 24 games with injury and been out of favor with the coach for some reason?? If there is any way we could work a deal to take him off Colorado's hands for reasonable value then we would have an instant upgrade to our 1st line centre IMHO.

I have trouble imagining the Colorado dealing such a bright young talent though?

I think the idea is that we don't qualify Fehr, so he becomes a UFA and then we sign him for something less. 1.1M still seems steep after this disaster of a season from him...unless it's a 2-way contract and we can send him down to St. John's for half-price?

I'd be interested in getting Kane for longer than one year. Lombardi is awful. Connolly has only one year left so it's not the worst thing in the world if we grabbed him but not for that return, no way. I remember some posters were disappointed we didn't get Comeau on waivers earlier in the year (why we got Miettinen probably), but he's been lacklustre in Calgary as well. I would rather just risk it with Macachek in that spot (give him more than a year, maybe 2 years).

Keep Ladd with Little and Wheeler, that line works. I like the Hainsey trade, might be steep for NYI but it works out. I also am in favour of signing Garrison but I'm sure a lot of teams will be interested. Florida offered him a deal and he turned it down, but it was about $2.5 million or something.

I think Comeau might be done. I don't know if the Jets want to take a chance on him.

You lost me! I don't see how this makes any sense for Winnipeg. The Jets are doing Burke a favour - why pay through the nose for it. Connolly is done, Lombardi is 30 and in decline, both are overpaid...how good is this Holzer, anyway? Couldn't we just trade Klingberg or Postma for him straight up?

I like Garrison. This would be a nice pickup. I imagine we're not the only ones looking at him. You'd think his first preference would be to stay in Florida now that they're on the rise...

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $55,055,459; BONUSES: $912,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $9,244,542

Tons of salary room to give Toby, Wheeler, Little, Burmi, and Kane raises as well as lots of financial flexibility for the 2012/13 UFA class. 8.25M in cap space opening after the 2012/13 season as well with Connolly and Lombardi off the books, may even be able to move Lombardi out during the season for a pick. Leaves the Jets with 1st, 4 2nds no 3rds in 2013 draft.

Still need to add a 1st line C and a 2nd line RW but this group looks a lot stronger to me than this years.
Interesting stuff. We just pry Duchene out of Colorado, maybe send NYI some of that talent you had allocated for the Leafs to get Okposo out of there and all the Jets' problems are solved!

Hey Wpgpage,

If the Jets were going to do Toronto a favor and take a guy like Connolly or Lombardi off their hands, a guy I would be interested in possibly buying low on is Kulemin. What do you think a deal around Connolly and Kulemin looks like?

Both had bad years, and in the case of Connolly, have bad contracts. We obviously be hoping that they rebound.

I don't know Kulemin's advanced stats, but I would think he would be a nice big body to put on the 2nd line RW spot.

Kuli's advanced stats are very good although he plays with Grabovski so much its hard to tell if its really Kuli or if hes "ridding the coat tails" so to speak. I would really like to get him and dropping Holzer for him is probably a fair deal.

The Original deal was supposed to have Kulda there not Postma/ Klingberg but I thought I might be undervaluing Connolly I think I went to far the opposite direction, and made it a little leaf heavy. Connolly gets an unfair rap because he signed that big contract, its not his fault Burkie signed a 3rd line C to play on the first line but now hes taking the hit for it. Lombardi is awful and hes basically the real cost of the trade, maybe he gets minutes of sheltered ice time and rebounds, maybe you play him as the 13th forward doesn't really matter hes gone at seasons end. Holzer is a very solid defensive D prospect will be lucky to see double digest in points on a year to year basis but plays very well in his own end and is a hard hitter. Was the best defender by a mile on a fairly stacked Marlies team.

As for Comeau I don't think hes ever going to be up above 40 PTS again but the idea with him is to get someone who can play tougher minutes. I like Machacek quite a bit but we have no idea if hes going to be able to handle difficult minutes in the NHL at this point we don't even know if he can handle soft minutes in the NHL. Comeau is a very low cost insurance policy.

I think I went to far the other way on that Leafs trade, removing Postma/ Klingberg makes a lot more sense, these moves were really based around trying to acquire some guys with NHL experience that could take some of the heat off GST and the Little line.

I wouldn't do that Leafs deal.

We'd be doing the Leafs a favor by taking Connolly and Lombardi's awful contracts. If anything, the Leafs would be the ones who would need to add a sweetener to get us to bite. There's no way I'd deal away picks or especially Postma/Klingberg for those players.

Well yeah if we don't qualify him.
But can we resign him right away? I wasn't sure if we had to wait until a later date.
I sent capgeek a tweet about that.
Hope they can provide an answer

The Jets can re-sign him at any time from now until the end of the season for less than the QO (or more ). He won't sign though, since he may as well wait until the QO comes or doesn't.

Now if the Jets do not give him a QO he becomes an UFA. There is no later date, he is UFA on July 1, 2012 if he fails to receive a QO and he can sign with any team at any time.

Take for example the Chicago FA fiasco in summer of 2007 (I think that was the year). The screwed up and never sent in their QO's, so they went out and immediately signed all their should be RFA's to new contracts, no wait time.

Also, thread full. New one started.
