Probably, if he's willing. Doubt he would be though.

He seems to love scoring against us.

Is there a salary cap in the AHL?

IceCaps need to re-sign Trotter.

No salary cap in the AHL, that's why teams can hide huge NHL salaries there.
Phoenix owns his rights, nothing to re-sign. We'd have to trade for him; I'm not sure what Phoenix thinks of him but he's definitely too small for their system so he might go for one of our lesser prospects.

I personally think that if he were better on faceoffs and more consistent defensively he could be a Darren Helm type player with wings like Klingberg, Cormier or Telegin. Might be worth looking into him just for what he's shown in the AHL thus far and giving him a chance on the Jets in the future. It probably helps that he's local, too.

Yeah there is no hurting bringing him into the organization

Im sure him being a Manitoban there is a good chance we could get him if he is a free agent this summer. He knows that he has Zinger in his corner he just needs too continue too prove him self

Worth a Shot!

Be nice if they could add him for not a lot but don't see what him being local does if everyone thinks he'll never be in the NHL.

There's no room for him on the Jets. I'd like to see him boost the Ice Caps though.

Trotter finished 5th in AHL scoring two seasons ago playing on a line with David Desharnais and Ryan White, both of whom have made the jump successfully. The Habs wouldn't give him a contract so he went to Russia, that's Gauthier's mistake.. He is a scorer, but finding room for him on the roster could be difficult, not sure I would annoint him as a 2nd liner without any practical results yet, and with Machacek, Miettenen, and Thorburn on the roster for next year, there isn't a lot of room. I would take him over Fehr though, no question, he is coming into his prime whereas Fehr may be passing his. Hope he signs a two-way with the Jets, he could give us some depth, maybe form a top notch AHL line with Telegin and Rosa next year.
