Looks like the Jets are putting a premium on size.

Nice trade. The only way Paquette gets into the NHL is if he buys a ticket to a game.

Great Trade!! Although now we really need to know how his injuries are. Anyone have any insight?

I would rather he join the team when he is fully healthy, rather than rush back right away.

Maybe you guys needed more Georgians (Is that correct ?)

I like Fehr, never seen him play in the bigs but loved watching him as a wheatie !

This is good. After planning the Stanley Cup parade route after Ladd signed, I was back to ordering tar and feathers for Chevy.

Now I can return to planning the parade route. But I will continue to monitor the situation with extreme vigilance.

Fantastic trade.

Paquette is a well known pest. The kind of guy you love to have on your team, and the guy you hate to play against. He has a Sean Avery type mouth. He just needs to learn how to not take so many penalties himself. Realistically he wasn't really worth anything to this organization, that style of player is a dime-a-dozen.

If Fehr stays healthy, he can help our teams scoring punch tremendously. I'm just worried that he only averages around 60 games per year.

Fehr? really? Well, for the price it's not bad, but not really the player needed.

I think it's a smart move for the short term.

In a time when most players probably perceive Winnipeg as an undesirable place to play, who better to serve as ambassadors than former Winnipeggers/Manitobans?

It's hard to say right now. His shoulders are pretty rough in general. Two torn labrums two years ago and another that ended his season this year. Right now there's no arthritis, but with any more trauma he could be headed that way.

The last surgery was in May. At the time it was felt that he would probably be ready for camp. Don't know if that has changed or not, but nothing has been made firm either way.

I remember seeing his autographed jersey at my LASIK specialist. Good to see more homegrown talent returning to Winnipeg.

Maybe we should try and acquire Colton Orr and James Reimer from Toronto?

I'm going to assume that they wouldn't have traded for a player that isn't going to be ready for the start of the season.

Great pickup for a great price, if he can stay healthy and play up to his potential he could be a wonderful addition.

What other teams spent too much on free agents that we can take advantage of? hehehe

Solid pick-up at a bargain price. Cap or not he was long one of my favorite prospects...though I hardly shed any tears when he didn't go beast mode for them...hopefully he'll reach some of his former potential with you guys.

As someone related to Jame I can tell you that we would all be pretty pumped if he were playing in Wpg. I doubt it will ever happen though.

Love the pick up. We had talked about it previously and its nice to see we're not all out to lunch making silly trades. I think when healthy he can slide nicely in on our second line. Well done Chevy

Fehr said via media conference call earlier today that he doesn't expect to be ready for training camp, but it sounded mostly like a case of not wanting to rush things and end up re-aggravating his injury.

Even with injury risks it's hard not to like the trade given what went the other way. A Kane-Burmistrov-Fehr second line sounds pretty good to me.

A big top six RW who can pot you 20? Exactly what this team needs!

Glad to see we are getting bigger and tougher.

PS TNSE is slowly starting to show why you don't panic 3 days into FA... WTG Chevy and Co!
