    Myers (re-signed at 5 x 4m?) and Ehlers (6 x 6m) for

    RNH (3 x 6m) and Larsson (3 x 4.2m).

    Myers is the puck moving D man and Ehlers is on McD's wing for the next 6 years at 6m per. The fastest duo in the league.
    The Jets get a replacement for Trouba for when he leaves and sign Stone next summer to replace Ehlers. In the meantime, Vesalainen will fill in for him.
    Stone is going to cost another 2.5m per but we save about that much on Trouba's next contract over Larsson's and we also get back a haul for Trouba not counting RNH for a great, still youngish, center.

    I think the Oilers add but not sure what/how much?

    Oilers need more good D not less and WPG has zero interest in moving Ehlers.

    No interest in this at all from an Edmonton perspective. Just focusing on the forwards, I prefer RNH and his ability to play the middle when needed over Ehlers, who probably doesn't add much more in terms of offense next to Connor McDavid.

    The defense doesn't need to be explained. That's just a ridiculously bad trade off.

    Pretty bad for Edmonton. This literally does nothing for them, not that it’s an amazing deal for the Jets either. But we lose the more versatile forward that already has chemistry with our best playerz And Larsson is already signed to an awesome deal, why give that up when we are in a cap crunch?

    myers isnt signing for 4m unless he has a horrible season.

    I dont think edmonton would take this deal, i think the like the versatility that nuge can provide to the team, and larsson is a bit better then the oft injured myers.

    I think this makes a bit more sense for jets but i think they might say no too. At least with Nuge the jets would have solid center depth.

    Larsson was traded for a Hart trophy winner. The minimum return would be another Hart trophy winner. I guess we could do Larsson for Laine+

    lol.

    Sunk Cost Fallacy much?

    Larsson would be lucky to return a Masterton Trophy winner.

    Absolutely no interest at all from Edmonton.

    For what seems to be the five millionth time, the ‘but think about XXX with McDavid!’ argument is NOT A SELLING POINT. McDavid is the best player in the league already. We don’t need your winger to make him better, and we damn sure don’t need to weaken our centres and defence to do so.

    Myers has zero business being on a top pairing, which is what we’d need him to do if we didn’t have Larsson soaking up tough matchups and defensive zone starts.

    Selanne was a Masterson winner and a great goal scorer. So once Laine returns from multiple kneee surgeries and makes a comeback in his mid 30’s, he’s all ours.

    Edmonton says no, Winnipeg hesitates because of Ehlers but they would be stupid to say no so they accept.

    I think I like Ehlers the most in this. I can understand to a point while Edmonton wouldn't do this but I can certainly see why Winnipeg wouldn't.

    McDavid is fine with Rattie .. Edmonton passes up on this great chance of acquiring Ehlers.

    No, the Jets still decline. Ehlers is the best player in the deal on the best contract, and he's good buddies with Laine. When the team is doing well, you don't make trades just for the sake of it, though Edmonton's history would point to that possibly even being a bad idea when the team is bad.

    Myers is better offensively than Larsson and a lot worse defensively. Neither one is a top pairing defenseman. Oilers fans keep overrating Larsson just because of what they gave up and how awful their D is. You see it with Nurse too. Larsson doesn't sway me on the Ehlers/RNH swap at all. Steady but nothing special.

    I agree with rebar. Easy no from Winnipeg. Ehlers is the best player in the deal.

    WPG would be extremely stupid to trade away Ehlers. That offer is pretty bad tbh. Easy pass for them.

    Don't like giving up the best player on the best contract so that makes it a no for the jets although value wise it is pretty even. All in all pretty good proposal.

    Ehlers at 6 could be our next Schiefele-like contract. Nylander is an identical player and hes asking for millions more. These long term savings mean a lot to a cap team like the jets

    Myers > Larsson
    Ehlers > RNH

    Why would Winnipeg do this?
