Jets still open to 'hockey trade' possibilities
TheFourthPeriod.com

Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff hasn't ruled out the possibility of trading one of his core players, but don't expect him to sell any of them for draft picks and prospects.

Teams continue to inquire about the likes of such Jets players as Andrew Ladd, Evander Kane, Dustin Byfuglien, Blake Wheeler and Zach Bogosian, among others.

Cheveldayoff appears willing to move just about anybody, if the right offer presented itself.

"(Cheveldayoff would) make a 'hockey trade', I'm sure," one league source told TFP. "Talent for talent, maybe even try to upgrade."

The Pittsburgh Penguins have expressed an interest in Ladd, while the Montreal Canadiens have eyed Kane, who is set to return to the lineup this week battling an injury.

As attractive as Winnipeg's assets may be, they're unlikely to be moved without equal, or better, talent coming back their way.

The Jets would like to obtain a good, young talent with first-line potential, and there were whispers at the beginning of the season that the team was interested in Edmonton Oilers right wing Nail Yakupov.

With the Oilers in need of defensive upgrades, Bogosian, whose no-trade clause doesn't kick in for a few years, was reportedly a prime target.

It's unknown if the two teams have resurrected those discussions.

Meanwhile, some players the Jets may sell include center Olli Jokinen, defenseman Mark Stuart and winger Devin Setoguchi, all of whom are set to become unrestricted free agents July 1.
