That was my thought, but in honesty I don't think they move him until their window closes anyway. But, maybe he would come here. Did he like it here when he played for the moose? And Zinger could always tell him that if it wasn't for him he wouldn't even have an NHL career and all that money!

Not bad, IMHO.

Burmistrov - Jokinen - Peverley
Wright - Slater - Peluso/Tangradi


I think I'd just rather a forward (like Grabovski) who has a higher and more polished offensive ceiling and better offensive tools.
I like the look of the lineup with Grabo in it better as well. They are both upgrades to our team from last year, but I wouldn't be thrilled to have either one of Frolik or Pevs in the top 6 (if I could help it).

Agree with ya, Huffer. Though I tend to do that often.

Is there any chance O'Dell could be our answer to the 2RW? He scored the fifth most goals in the AHL last year and at the 2nd fastest rate.

If we could shelter the line and get them easy minutes Kane-Scheifele-O'Dell has the firepower to score goals.

With regards to Burmi to Phoenix, I'm going Gormley or bust.

Wouldn't the point of getting Klesla or a similar player be to put him with Buff so he can clean up Buff's mistakes?

Also can't Peverley play the left side well enough? Peverley - Burmi - Frolik seems like a pretty good 3rd line to me, and Burmi might see some offensive spark with those guys.

Also I may be hard on Jokinen but I can't see him returning to his old form and putting up those kinds of points again.

This at least indicates Chevy is willing to spend some money here.

Made contact with Nathan Horton's agent. #NHLJets inquired, but it's 'unlikely' he is coming here. He did visit Columbus. #bn

I'm not interested in Horton at all, but your point is valid.

Agree with you, neither do I. Too much injury risk there, in my opinion. Especially for the cost and term it will cost getting him as a UFA.

Plus I don't think his game suits what we want in a linemate for Kane.

Sounds like Peverly might be involved in the Seguin trade. Cross him off the Jets wishlist, unless we can find a way to squeeze ourselves into that deal

EDIT: Oops. Nevermind. Sounds like its Bergeron.

Good lord I hope no one is serious about picking up Aaron Asham.

At 35 is he really what this team needs? I honestly don't see us as having a grit problem. We have an ability problem and Asham doesn't help with that.

100% agree.

We have top 6 problems. Bottom six is a trainwreck of too many players.

Peverley's gone. That Boston/Dallas trade isn't helping my mood about our division this season...

With Rich Peverley off the market, don't be surprised if #NHLJets discuss bringing in bought-out #Sabres F Nathan Gerbe

Gerbe is undersized, but would bring speed and skill. Two years ago with #Sabres, he had 16 goals and 31 points in 64 games

You gotta be kidding me. I like Gerbe, always have, love his determination and heart and for a small guy his size to play in the NHL is damn impressive, but he is 5'5" for crying out loud... Jets do not need that, in my opinion.

Maybe he and Wheeler could patch up this disagreement:

Yeah that tweets makes all kinds of no sense to me. Out on Peverly so we move to Gerbe?

Don't see the logic.

Jim Nill is one heck of a GM, first year and he already wheeling and dealing. This won't be an easy divsion to play in.

Man does that ever look good. I sure like the look of the second line. This actually gives us depth and four good lines. Grabo had an off year but we could sure use his help.
I would really love to see Chevy make a splash like the BOS-DAL deal, but I know we don't have too many assets to do it. What could we get if we package two of the following with a prospect Burmi, Redmond, Little, Postma? Im sure something good, I guess I just want Chevy to make some sort of splash this summer to change the look of our top six.

Exactly. I just don't get it, and I have nothing against smaller players (I want Derek Roy), but I just do not see our team needing Nathan Gerbe at 5'5"...

I don't know, maybe my first reaction here to reading this tweet is a bit of an overreaction... I know he has some talent, but I just overall don't see the fit or need here, there has to be something else. Too much of a reach and bargain bin shopping for my liking.

I don't feel like we have enough grit in the bottom 6 really. And our ability problem is the lack of top 6 forwards. I feel like we got too many tweeners.

Because we're too small as is... But I feel like he would just be another Wellwood type. 2nd/3rd line tweener type, and we need more skill up front then what he would likely bring.

Burmi's value is at a low. Although I really do like Burmi and think he can rebound from a change in scenery, no way is Phoenix trading its top prospect for him straight up, regardless of our organizational needs.

We were one of the bigger teams in height and weight last season. Losing Antropov and Hainsey would effect that a little bit from a numbers sense, but on the ice it's not a big change headed forward. Ugh, just don't like the thought of Gerbe on our team.

He very well could, problem is we have a log jam on D. 5 RHD and 4 LHD either under contract or RFAs. Only Trouba is exempt from waivers, so that works against him.

Gerbe would have to be a 3rd line type scorer for us and we really don't need a small offensive upgrade or someone who would just replace Wellwood. We need more production from someone and I don't think Gerbe would be that, regardless of his size.
