Very straight and to the point

To Chicago:
Nik Antropov

To Winnipeg:
Bryan Bickell

Rental for Rental. Might have to be closer to the deadline for salary purposes.

Bickell is more physical and suits that 3rd line.

But Antropov is a C which Chicago desperately needs


I'd do it.

Although I'm an Antro fan and would like to see him stay, I expect him to be moved near the deadline for only a draft pick(s) or perhaps a young prospect.

Interesting trade proposal though.

If the Jets are dealing at the deadline, they're not going to want another rental in return.

Nah, I'm a big fan of what Antropov can bring to the table.

I'm actually hoping the Jets resign him.

Why would the Jets do this? I can't see how this was even considered slightly when coming up with the proposal. Antropov is good defensively, can provide scoring depth (as much as you'd hope a 3rd line would and far more than Bickell could) and can play C or LW.

Here's how you do look things up:
2011-2012 Winnipeg Jets Stats - Forwards
You'll notice Antropov was, amongst Jets forwards last year:
- 6th in points
- 7th in hits (despite how everyone says he doesn't hit)
- 5th in blocked shots
- 5th in PK TOI
- 3rd in FO taken (not that he's good, but that further illustrates a team need)
Now, tell me how Bickell would be more effective for the Jets in any of those capacities besides hits. Otherwise, explain why the Jets would even consider dumping a useful player who could fetch a decent return at the deadline for a lesser rental player who doesn't fit their needs.

Antropov is probably one of the least dynamic players in the league but he's actually an extremely useful one. He's a guy that the coach knows exactly what he can and cannot do and as long as he's not asked to do something he can't (like play a rush style game) he's quite effective.

For example, Noel often moves him around in the lineup to sort out underperforming lines. That's the kind of confidence he has in him. By no means is he an All-Star and he'd certainly be available for the right deal but I also think there's a good chance he'll be re-signed.

As far as the OP's offer goes, it is a pretty easy no for Winnipeg. Antropov is contributing a lot more than Bickell could and given he's headed to UFA too there's no point in making that trade. If the Jets are out at the deadline and they don't think they'll be re-signing Antropov then he'll be on the table for picks and/or prospects.

Antropov wouldn't really fit the style of the Hawks... I'd like him

From an outsider I don't think it a good deal for Chicago not cause the value is not there cause I think it a fair deal I just don't think it not a good fit for Chicago !!

IMO, Bickell is better than Antropov right now, so no thanks.

If we are trading Antropov he is going for picks or prospects not another bottom 6 grinder
