    Hmmm, they could not reach an agreement yet. Chevy wants him on for another shot at the Cup this year. Will he be a UFA after this year?

    One more year of RFA. He's in the same position as Parise was with the Devils the last two years. They seem utterly reluctant to pay him anywhere near what he's worth long-term. I wouldn't be surprised if he went to arbitration again next summer and left as a UFA, just like Parise.

    Thanks. Hard to see him staying if he goes to arb next year.

    BTW, do you know this: If Skjei signs a 2 year deal is he a RFA or UFA after?

    He'd be an RFA still. One year away from UFA.

    Jets playing with fire here, but if the plan is to keep him for one more run before they trade him next offseason its a good deal for them. Trouba @ 5.5m is a steal.

    Btw, why didnt anyone offer sheet him? 6m AAV would mean just a 1st and a 3rd. From 6 to 8.1m its a 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Trouba is easily worth that for non-lottery teams.

    They don't even need to. They could do this again if they absolutely had to, or inexplicably wanted to, and just let him go the Parise route to UFA after the 2019 season having gotten the majority of his prime for very little. They've got a window to win the Cup these next few years, anyway.

    Because offer sheets aren't actually a thing.

    I guess, but he's still 26 in two years, losing a 26 y/old Trouba for free will hurt.

    I could see them signing him long term after the upcoming season when Myers 5.5m will be off the books. Still needs to sign Connor, Laine and Morressey next season tho. Wheeler aswell, but he'll be 32 next summer, so not sure what they'll do with him.

    Yeah, I mean, I'd have locked him up long ago. I'm just saying, I could see them just cutting bait soon. That relationship can't be that great after arbitration and his hold out a couple years ago.

    he's gonna go ufa and look for the 8 year deal, which again means you'll pay big money to a 34-35 year old. i'd rather take my chances with the kids and future drafts. no way you will get him to broadway offering 5 years in 2019

    He can only get eight years from the Jets. The UFA market can only offer as many as seven.

    Not if Hayes isn't signed long-term. The Jets have the same trouble as other clubs in not knowing if their big pieces, Trouba included, are in for the long-term.

    Hayes for Trouba doesn't answer the question for them. It just changes a variable.
