Will the Winnipeg Jets trade Jacob Trouba?

What will the Winnipeg Jets do with Jacob Trouba?

WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Mike McIntyre reports the Winnipeg Jets will likely face a salary-cap crunch next summer. Jacob Trouba, Patrik Laine, Kyle Connor, Andrew Copp, Joe Morrow and Laurent Brossoit will be restricted free agents while Blake Wheeler, Brandon Tanev, Tyler Myers and Ben Chiarot will be UFAs. Among McIntyre’s suggests options to address this issue could be trading Trouba, which “would not only be best for both sides, but a necessity from Winnipeg’s perspective. There will be several potential suitors if Trouba hits the trade block “but pinning down who and what is involved is anyone’s guess.”  The New York Islanders (who have Manitoba native Ryan Pulock on their blueline) or the Detroit Red Wings as possible options, though acknowledges that’s just pure speculation on his part.
