Jets news:

Global News: Jets, Leafs fans have plenty in common this off-season. Let’s hope Jesse Pollock isn’t seeing that headline or he may take issue with Kelly however the focus of this piece is have the cores of these two clubs run their course and require changes.

The Athletic Winnipeg: NHL offseason trade board: What we’re hearing about Jets stars, Leafs’ Core 4 and other targets. (Paywall). Michael Russo and Eric Duhatschek teamed up for this article. They think if Hellebuyck is available then Buffalo and/or New Jersey are the teams to take big swings. With the usual speculation about Wheeler, Dubois and Scheifele thrown in for good measure.

New York Post: Bidding war for Connor Hellebuyck. The article by Larry Brooks starts with a potential new coach for the Rangers. Eventually it gets to teams who might be interested in the services of the top netminder of Winnipeg. The ones he mentions include New Jersey, Ottawa and Pittsburgh.
