The Winnipeg Jets have already pulled off a big trade this season when they shipped out Patrik Laine for Pierre-Luc Dubois. GM Kevin Cheveldayoff appears ready to make a NHL trade deadline move to make a run at the Stanley Cup.
The Jets currently sit four points back of the Toronto Maple Leafs with two games in hand. Right now Winnipeg has just over $2.8 million of cap space available from LTIR to make a trade.
Cheveldayoff stated, “The deal has to feel right from a fit perspective,” he explained. “But then the deal also has to feel right from an acquisition cost perspective. The quarantine is something that we just have to deal with. If you can find that deal you like and it fits, then you just do it whenever.”
