Huge trade to kick off things in Winnipeg. We're very happy to have acquired Goligoski to help solidify the depth of our blueline, and add a prospect in Merkley who definitely has potential to be a top-6 forward down the line.
... But our biggest need was that of an Elite goaltender NOW and not hoping that Hellebuyck could be that for us. Seeing the chance at getting Rask was just too good to pass up, and while the price was a little more than we'd really like to give up for a goalie, someone of Rask's calibre isn't on the block too often so we couldn't give away this chance. Connor and Roslovic will likely be huge pieces for Boston down the road but we had the young forward depth to sacrifice them for a current organizational need.
As of now, the Jets will be looking to mainly alter their offense, picks and prospects are still readily available, as we'll be looking to deal Little, and Burmistrov as the main pieces, and are looking to revamp our bottom-six, as well as acquire a more complete 2C.
