Phil Posted April 22, 2019 Share Posted April 22, 2019 So we can start the watch on the Rangers? interest in Winnipeg?s pending free-agent right defenseman Jacob Trouba manifesting itself in trade talks, the Jets having been KO?d in six by the Blues. Winnipeg, the organization that built almost exclusively through the draft, is about to get hammered. Trouba, who had an extremely contentious second-contract negotiation that bled into the start of 2016-17, is a Group II with salary-arbitration rights; wingers Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor are Group II?s without arbitration rights who will nevertheless command massive increases coming off entry-level contracts; and defenseman Tyler Myers is a pending UFA. Trouba, who turned 25 in late February, is likely to command $7 million a year. The Rangers will be among those wanting to give it to him. This, I believe, would suit the Blueshirts just fine on their 2019-20 right side: 1. Trouba; 2. Adam Fox; 3A. Tony DeAngelo; 3B. Neal Pionk. The Jets, in their elimination game in St. Louis on Saturday, were able to muster just 22 five-on-five shot attempts through 40 minutes while outshot 22-6 at full strength. They neither had enough nor got enough. https://nypost.com/2019/04/21/silence-around-lehners-future-is-good-sound-for-islanders/?utm_source=twitter_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site%20buttons&utm_campaign=site%20buttons Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
