Maybe Scott Brown melted his phone somehow? When would we have official confirmation Yuen is gone?

This Yuen situation is surprising. If he really doesn't want to be part of this franchise it's better for both sides.

Let's not kid ourselves. If Yuen goes unsigned, it's since Jets did not sign him. Not him rejecting contract.
oh ya...
I'm just confused...

It's like the Jokinen/Antro/Burmi thing... it's not that I though Antro/Burmi were superstars but logically one deserved something over the other and the decision didn't follow that...

If that's true he should've been traded.

Trade a prospect for what? He was unproven and who knows how many years before he gets a sniff of the NHL? If he opts to go back into the draft, don't the Jets get a consolation pick in response to that?

Weird situation. We have three options:

a) we signed him but it's not official yet (for whatever reason)
b) we wanted to sign him but he doesn't want to be part of the franchise
c) we didn't sign him because we chose not to (no idea why)

A pick. Any pick. 5th rounder for all I care

Only 1st rounders. You get a compensation pick in the same position a full round lower.

If memory serves me correct, the Coyotes traded Jared Staal to Carolina just before the signing deadline and got a pick in return. So it wouldn't be unprecedented if the Jets traded Yuen for a pick.

Until Pronman tweets we didn't sign him, I'm taking it easy. He's tweeting a bunch of unsigned prospects right now.

And there we have it:

Corey Pronman ‏@coreypronman 1m

I was waiting on this one to be sure. Winnipeg did not sign 2011 4th round pick D Zach Yuen. Think he will certainly be picked as a re draft

Will we get an explanation for this decision from TNSE do you think? Or will this remain a mystery?

Is he right handed or left handed? If its right, not signing him makes more sense to me

If we do, I'd be very surprised if there was any decent insight into it.

This will all become somewhat clearer come draft day. If he goes undrafted or in the 7th round, meh, no big deal. Just another prospect we parted ways with. If he goes around where he did in 2011, then the explanation will have been made for us. Yuen clearly did have some trade value, and the Jets front office lost sight of that.

LH.

Very curious, this. It'll be interesting to see if the media will delve into this at all, and if Chevy will discuss the non-signing.

I don't anticipate we will hear much. Probably won't get much more than a dismissal of the issue by Rick and Gary.

yes, because we all know the draft and drafting slots is highly correlated to guaranteed NHL success - especially when you are looking at picks after the 1st round

The sky is falling .....The sky is falling........ The sky is falling........... Yes I think we should have signed Yeun . I have been following him since we drafted him, I liked his plus/minus +40 stat 2 yrs ago but that tailed off this year when his team was no longer such an offensive threat. All said this is not a Justin schultz situation like Anahiem faced last year, its a minor setback. I think the fans in St Johns should be more upset as I saw him spending most of his 3 yrs Elc on the Rock. I would have liked his depth on D (at this stage I give him a 1/4 chance of playing more than 10 games in the NHL).

If you would have asked me a month ago I was extremly concerned that we may be in this situation with Lowry at this time, when he was not signed with a month to go until June 1st. I do think the Jets should identify who they want to ELC sooner and not procastinate so much............. I Know Chevy "there is a process that must be followed"............. but sometimes, for the fans the process sucks.

I liked Yuen, I remember on draft day he was touted as being great value in round 4. That said, I think if the choice was Brassard OR Yuen, Brassard makes a bit more sense due to organizational depth (or lack there of on RW). Sure, LHD is kind of weak too, but D overall is pretty strong right now so I'd like to have some added RW depth.

Not signing him is a little odd, although perhaps they're hoping to get some great guys in the top 3 rounds this year and don't want extra spots towards the 50 contract limit being taken up.

So, the 2011 draft has produced:
Round 1 - Mark Scheifele, C - signed
Round 2 - no pick
Round 3 - Adam Lowry, LW - signed
Round 3 - Brennan Serville, D - NCAA
Round 4 - Zachary Yuen, D - not signed
Round 5 - Austen Brassard, RW - signed
Round 6 - Jason Kasdorf, G - NCAA
Round 7 - Aaron Harstad, D - NCAA?

The Jets defensive depth doesn't really exist. The defensive group in St. John's is pretty sad.
