    Well Friedman said less than a week ago that Florida/Colorado we’re discussing Weegar/Jost but Sakic ended up trading for Toews which ended those talks. His value is obviously much more than a 7th although I still doubt it’s very high.

    If you sign Jost to a contract that is 1M or less, then it doesn’t really matter. He can be demoted to the ahl at no cap cost if required. No need to trade him. He can be a 13th forward.

    If 22 is the cutoff to figure it all out before it's too late, Nichushkin (another 10 OA pick) shouldn't have performed like he did this year. If Nuke can improve at 23/24, why can't Jost?

    Cause Nuke is 6'4 and 210 lbs so he can throw his weight around in the cycle game. Jost is 5'11 187 lbs and softer than soft serve ice cream.

    Saying that Nichuskin had a good season only because of his size and ability to 'throw his weight around' does him a massive disservice.

    He was 6'4" and 210 lbs in Dallas last year and struggled so badly he was bought out. I don't disagree that Nuke's size helps, but something else changed between last season in Dallas and this year in Colorado. And there's a long list of other players who didn't succeed in the NHL until after turning 22, so pretending that Jost should be a finished product before turning 22 is silly. Maybe he won't improve, but the window of opportunity is still wide open.

    His game fits our style of play, but he is the antithesis of what we need. We need everything you say he lacks. We already have an overabundance of slower, defensive and possession-minded forwards. I wouldn't mind adding Jost for a throw away pick, but he'd just be added to the pile of nondescript defensive forwards.
