2 good offers in for Schneider. He's shown elite talent this season and he's ready for a big workload next year. A perfect #1A for any team.
2 offers for Luongo in the past hour, keep in mind he's not likely to waive his NTC unless he is going east, (Likely the Southeast as his family is there). Top 5-10 goaltender in the league, Olympic gold medal and an excels with a heavy workload. We were interested in moving him and rolling with Schneider but underwhelming offers have us considering holding onto a guy like Lu.
EDIT: Mason Raymond has been moved pending a players NTC waive. More to come. David Booth, Manny Malhotra, Kassian are still available in regards to forwards. Looking for a Top 4 defenseman.
The Winnipeg Jets made a major move today, sending Defensemen Tobias Enstrom to the Islanders along with a 5th round pick for stud prospects Nino Niederrieter and Kirill Kabanov
"This was a 'big picture' trade for he organization" GM T_Cage explained to the media, "we know some fans may not like losing Tobias, I sure didn't, but with Enstrom being 1 year away from UFA we decided to shore up our future top 6 with 2 dynamic wingers that will bring an exciting brand of hockey to Winnipeg. And with the NHL's most enthusiatic fans, they deserve an equally dynamic product"
The organization thanks Tobias for his years of service. Sources are unsure weither T_Cage will look for a replacement, but many feel Bogosian is ready to step into an increased role.
Sources also say this might be the first trade in reent memory where IR4 actually ADDED a draft pick
