Boddy604 Posted January 25, 2016 Share Posted January 25, 2016 http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/decisions-on-byfuglien-and-ladd-can-make-or-break-jets-future/ Reports saying Byfuglien is a priority in contract negotiations over Ladd. So Ladd could be the guy headed to free agency over Byfuglien. If that's the case, might be a decent replacement for Vrbata. He's from Maple Ridge too so he'd be moving back home. He could effectively replace Burrows and Vrbata in one swoop. Produces points, is a leader, is local, pretty much everything Benning wants. Probably could be aquired for slightly more than Vrbata money. Unfortunate times for the Jets organization though. One way or the other, they're losing a guy that makes them a lot better.
