  • Times Running out to Trade Drew Stafford

    The Winnipeg Jets are slowly getting injured player, by injured player back into their lineup, and its starting to pay dividends in the win column. The more players who come back, the more that will be forced to leave the Jets lineup, and Drew Stafford may be one of them. : Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports More from Jets White OutWinnipeg Jets Need to Protect Blake Wheeler1 d agoWinnipeg Jets Need Four Straight Wins Now2d agoWinnipeg Jets: Final Skills-Comp Predictions4d agoWinnipeg Jets: Did Media Hype Up Laines Mistake?1 w agoKyle Connor Should Flourish in Time for Next Winnipeg Jets Call-Up1 w ago The urgency is because if Stafford finds himself on the outside, looking in on a non-playoff team, his trade value will plummet to virtually nothing. Sure the Jets have unbelievable depth up front, but no playoff team is going to want Stafford if he doesnt have a roster spot. The team must be willing to absorb his $4.25 million contract for the rest of the season Tobias Enstrom Jersey. This price for a 20-goal scorer isnt too pricey, but as a bottom-six role player, Stafford is way overpayed. What could the Jets get for their winger? Each and everyday Drew Staffords trade value is falling more and more, but that doesnt mean he still wont bring a large return. If the Jets are looking into the future, maybe a second round pick could be fair value. If the Jets want an actual player in return, youd have to believe theyd be asking for a top-six left shooting defenseman who has upside. Whether the fit be in Chicago, Dallas, Montreal, Columbus, or somewhere else off the map, the Jets should consider all option with their winger. Drew Stafford and the Jets will both only have negative effects of eyeing each other in the press box.
