<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BatVader</b></div><div>Domi would fit, but it would very much depend on the asking price.
I think it’s very likely Domi gets moved in the offseason as he’s the highest value player that’s easiest to replace, considering the Habs internal C depth. Most likely Montreal will be looking to fix their issues on LD in return so they’ll want an established player or an NHL ready prospect coming back as part of the deal.
There is also the issue of Domi being RFA this offseason, so a new contract would need to be worked out either prior to a trade or as part of the trade process. (It’s more likely an acquiring team would want to negotiate there own deal)
I can see Domi getting 6yrs at 6.5M, but more than that and I’d look elsewhere, personally.
As you said, shedding cap to bring him in would be required, so the Jets would need to include a player like Perreault or they’d need to trade one separately in another deal.
As for the sources you listed...
Dreger is mostly full of hot air. Usually just spewing what he hears from someone else.
Lebrun is a throw crap at the wall and see what sticks, kinda guy.
The Bobfather, McKenzie, is the most credible source there is, but he isn’t always the fastest.</div></div>
I get what everyone is saying on what they think Domi is worth and im not disagreeing with it. I do think he will get more though based on contracts that Kreider and Hayes have received. I think Domi has more potential at his age right now over those guys. So i am not so sure he gets less than 7 a season.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Birtle34</b></div><div>That Boston trade is terrible for the jets, Krug is good, but is on the back half of his career and the jets aren’t a single player away, and even if they were, you don’t trade laine to fill it. And Faulk doesn’t waive to Winnipeg, and even if he does, he’s older too and goes against everything winnipeg does with, draft develop, team control, before they have to pay or trade.</div></div>
Okay so i disagree with everything you are saying. Krug at 28 and points a year increasing is not on the back half of his career. In fact, they say a dman doesn't even mature until 25 or 26 much like goaltenders. I don't know what you are talking about Faulk won't waive. It was reported a long time ago that Winnipeg is in fact on his list of teams he would like to play for. All of this is found on TSN if you want to challenge me. Now please tell me your source.
