Don't know anything about this Negrin dude, but anything more than a box of tape for Aliu sounds pretty good to me.

John Negrin backwards is Nirgen Nhoj.

That's pretty much the scope of my knowledge on him.

Decent deal for the Jets. Negrin reminds me somewhat of how Stuart was before he cracked the Bruins roster. A shutdown defenseman who can skate well and contributes to the PK.

Aliu isn't much of a loss in my opinion.

Needs to stay healthy!!!!!!!! Injuries have slowed his development.

Aliu has done nothing but regress these past few years.

A depth signing on D.

If one was a speculative type one could surmise that this means they are intent upon moving Oduya (and/or perhaps another D as well), and are looking to replace Flood (and perhaps more) on the Ice Caps when he/they are needed as replacements with the big club.

I'm also guessing that Zinger saw something he liked in Negrin from both his AHL and WHL days. He is a d-man with some size, young, and with lower pairing (5/6) NHL potential down the pike.

Negrin is not a guy that has developed like Calgary was hoping. Big guy, but poor skater, he has regressed alot since he got into 3 games in 08-09 (Injuries were a big part of it). This is the final year of his ELC and he has spent time in the ECHL this season. TBH, I don't even see where he fits into the IceCaps blueline right now. Expect him to leave unqualified at the end of the year. Especially with O'Neill, Sol, Chiarot, Melchiori, McFaull, Owuya all looking to crack the IceCaps roster next year on the blueline (Owuya, O'Neill, Melchiori, McFaull are all UFA's if they do not sign this summer, I expect only 1-2 to be signed.)

The funny part about this trade is that for the Heat they just lost a guy for nothing (Aliu is already playing for the Heat, so the trade is just going to have Negrin go from Heat to IceCaps)

Jets win this trade.

Now, who's John Negrin?

Negrin is a two-way D who was shaping up to be a quality bottom 3 to us. Injuries have really derailed his career. His knees have taken a huge beating and have slowed him down a lot...the last little while, the depth in Abbotsford has been looking better and a few players will be making the jump next year. Negrin would have been out of a job quick here.

I hope he can pick it up again though...I've liked him since his WHL days and it always bugged me when he started to regress into nothing special in the AHL. Aliu looks to be much the same (for different reasons), but I'm hoping he gets his head on straight and becomes an agitator. He hasn't been a bad bottom 6 player for the Heat so far.

I'm wondering if Heisinger (or whoever from St. J) telling Abbotsford they were going to recall Aliu from his loan was what prompted this trade.

This almost makes up for the offer sheet Calgary gave Selanne back in the day.

Almost.

Negrin and Ben Maxwell were also teammates for 3 years in Kootenay.

Defense in St. John's now looks like:

Paul Postma
Arturs Kulda
Zach Redmond
Derek Meech
Brett Festerling
John Negrin
Jason DeSantis
Travis Ramsey
*Mark Flood
*Ben Chiarot

Even with Flood in the NHL and Chiarot in the ECHL, they have too many defensemen. My guess is Oduya is traded at the deadline and Meech gets called up.

Meech is gone for a few weeks as he injured his knee so that buys Chevy abit of time.

Apparently Negrin was a pretty good prospect before a whole lot of injury problems.

Negrin is a pretty good player. If he can rebound from these injuries, he could be a decent pickup.

John Negrin was once thought to be a great prospect for the Flames comparable to Jordan Leapold.

Unfortunately, he seems injury prone and has not developed as expected.

Did the Jets get the best player in the deal? Yes.

Should we plan the Stanley Cup Parade? No.

This trade would indicate to me the Jets are stocking up on defensemen because they expect to lose some through a trade or free agency.
