Note: Been some buzz this week that the Jets are a team with interest in Minnesota defenceman Matt Dumba. It doesn’t seem very likely that a trade will happen but here is why this is in the news.
The Athletic Winnipeg: A Matt Dumba trade would in no way be a guaranteed win for Winnipeg. (Paywall). A bit of a wakeup call for those who think dealing Ehlers wouldn’t hurt the Jets in this piece by Murat.
TSN: Hockey Draft Primer – Winnipeg Jets. They look back at the 2019 draft, they grade the last five drafts, look at the Winnipeg trends, the Jets top 10 prospects, a lookahead to the 2020 draft, draft poll results and Craig’s choice.
Sportsnet: Why the Winnipeg Jets should be interested in trading for Matt Dumba. With news that the Jets were a team interested in the Regina product Ken wrote this column on why the Jets should be looking to acquire the 2012 7th overall selection.
The Athletic: 22 players who could be on the move this offseason. (Paywall). They’ve got Laine at #1 and Ehlers at #10. As we discussed in the first segment of last Saturday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show none of the three of us (Ez, Drew or myself) see the Jets moving either of these two forwards.
