Thoughts? Made this awhile ago and didn't get much feedback, haven't seen many Jets posts lately, hope all are well! Also hope I didn't miss any Jets fans,
sorry if I did.. Lol</div></div>

I think Potato was only supposed to be an AHLr until our defence core wound up the way it did and we were forced to use him.
I agree, I would rather have had Djoos than Dahlstrom and wonder if he could have been better than Poolman, although on some nights Poolman was a nice surprise, just inconsistent.
Sbisa played well enough as a waiver pickup while he was heathy.
No thanks on Scandella, and our D didn’t really start playing well until we got DeMelo, which I think is maybe the steal of the TDL (although Boston’s is right up there, how they ditched Backes and his contract and still managed to get Ritchie and Kase is beyond me)
Eakin was a decent pickup, good penalty killer and plays with some bite which we would have needed in playoffs.
Most of the waiver pickups did relatively well considering they were throw aways, and I’m at the stage I don’t want Chevy to spend any assets unless it’s long term fixes to C or RHD positions. Hopefully we can sign Demelo.
All things considered, Troubas agent gaming the trade, Buffs unexpected departure, signing Connor and Laine to deals and the few pickups at the TDL I think Chev did well and if things go the way they are expecting to, stagnant cap or reduction, Winnipeg is probably sitting in one of the best positions of any team, Cap wise anyways.
I would love to see Chev use some muscle to force a blockbuster or offer sheet. Use some cap space to pick up an asset or offer sheet someone along the likes of Barzal, Serg or Cirelli.
Come on Chevy, enough of being Mr Nice Guy
