    You guys honestly think Giroux's cap is too much? I think it's really fair to what he does. As a leader, two way player, even a hart candidate.

    Honestly, Giroux is better than Crosby. If the Jets want to get him, it’s going to start with at least Roslovic, Niku and maybe a first round pick.

    I find that Scheifele is too much of a shooter. I’d like a pure pass-first center who could also cover for his defensive lapses.

    Oreilly, possibly schenn, I believe you need a passer, but also somebody a little faster and a little more physical than laine, possibly domi. One can pray that it is roslovic with some confidence or copp coming into his own, probably all that is in the budget.

    Nah. But I just thought about Backstrom. Maybe the best playmaker the game has ever seen.

    You're choice is a guy that doesn't really play centre anymore.

    I'd like Domi but think O'Reilly is the smarter choice, two guys that could've been had eff sakes!!

    Scheiffele is a shooter/goal scoring center but he'd probably work.

    The center for Laine issue is the biggest thing the Jets need to figure out.

    I wonder what schenn would cost next summer if stlouis doesn’t have the dough to sign him, probably more than what the jets could afford, possibly option number 3 after oreilly and domi

    I agree the jets really need to find a center for Laine.
    I was SO hoping we would get o Reilly and we could’ve offered way better than St. Louis!

    Maybe McDavid but the other two seem less appealing. Really needs a pure playmaker with a strong defensive game.

    Schenn will be 29 shortly after he signs a fat contract with a lot of term, is that really a good idea for the Jets?

    Maybe 2 of them but I think Mack is too much of a goal scoring center.

    He was also top 5 c for assists and would create so much room for him tho
