Protecting 7 forwards means they can only protect 3 dmen, which means they would lose Borgen or Risto for free, so get assets back for Risto and protect Borgen Dahlin Jokiharju

Jets have cap space. Besides, that trade is bad for Winnipeg. Chevy says no

How? If they dont need to trade Lowry, keep him. Theyre giving up a low first in a weak draft

The Jets can move Beaulieu to LTIR (season ending surgery), then the space will be around $3.7 million which is plenty for an acquisition if it isn't money-in/money-out.

Next season, Stastny and Perreault come off the books, so that is $10.6 million. Little (out since Nov 2019) may be on LTIR so if they spend the $10.6 million, then can use Little LTIR relief.

Not because you were anticipating an expansion draft
