Bryan Little for your big RW

Little has been playing at wing and we'd like to upgrade him. He's a great C but current team philosophy seems to be put the big bodies at C.

Would prefer someone with higher point production than Little, we can throw in some picks. Obviously a team with an elite #1C but questionable #2 would be perfect for him.

His current contract has a very economical hit of $2,383,333 and expires into RFA status this year.

I don't see any reason to upgrade him, he's a very good all around player. If he's moved I'd rather it be for a good LH 2nd pairing defenseman.

We could do that also, and slot in Scheifele in his spot. Problem is I'd prefer Scheifele as a C in the top 9. Two 6'3" C's (Jokinen and Scheif) plus Antropov at 6'6" sounds killer to me.

Hmm. Not too many teams are looking to make lateral moves. He's the kid of guy that could play third line if we got someone better to bump him down.

I don't see any reason that the Jets need to move him.

He's a very good #2 RW, with Wheeler being the #1. Plus he's extremely versatile also being able to play C and being decent at faceoffs as well. He can essentially play 4/6 positions in any teams' top 6. Plus he's very good defensively, that's a lot of versatility.

I don't see any reason why the Jets would upgrade him or any justification as to why they would.

Not to mention he finally got slotted back on RW and has looked fantastic already this season. Remember he had a 30 goal season as a winger in Atlanta? Give it some time man. No one's going to value Little as highly as the Jets do.

Little is 5'11. Same height as Crosby. He's not small, he's just not big.

My thoughts exactly. He's looked very good on the wing so far.

Not a fan of either team, but what about something around Little for Okposo?

I don't think that's an upgrade to be totally honest.

Okposo can barely stay on his skates.

I don't know man. I'd say he's pretty little.

Any interest in a guy like Colin Greening? I've always been a big fan of Little.

I've watched Little ever since he played for Barrie, wouldn't mind him and Postma on the Sens.

To

RW Drew Stafford ($4M)

Jets get a big bodied winger for the 2nd line.

To

C/W Bryan Little ($2.4M RFA)

Sabres get some much needed help in the F/O circle (currently batting around 30%). Also allows Buffalo to move Ennis back to a wing.

Both are coming off 24 goal seasons.

Why do the isles, deep at center with Tavares, F. Nielsen, Strome, B. Nelson, Sundstrom and Cizikas, want Little?

Moulson-Tavares-KO
Grabner-F. Nielsen-Boyes

Isles need to get bigger and tougher in their top 6.

This is the only one I would possibly consider. Stafford IMO is better than the previously mentioned Okposo, Greening, Stewart, etc.

Problem is that Little's versatility in my mind is going to be important if this team contends. When injuries strike it's good to have a guy that can rotate all over your top 6 the way Little does.

Weird... This thread has no anger or frustration or terrible terrible options. If i'm the jets, I'm considering the Stafford/Little one for a long time... But I think the Jets say no.

But it's a good option!

I don't think size is a deciding factor. Little has always been productive, even more so now that he's back on the wing.

I know the Jets are trying to ice a "bigger" team, but every team has a couple of small forwards (ex. 5'9" Marchand on Boston and 5'11" Richards on LA)

I think Okposo for Little could work. Not too inclined to move K.O though (up and down on keeping him personally)

Honestly the poster who asked who this"we is" is spot on. I like Brian Little's effort, faceoff work, speed, play making, defense, penalty killing and much more! No reason to trade him. end of thread.

We don't need to get any bigger.

The Jets are the tallest team in the league and 3rd overall in weight.

Little is a great 2nd line RW and "we" don't all think we need to upgrade him.
