Dustin Byfuglien, currently on personal leave from WPG, is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future. I’m not saying Byfuglien is retiring; I’m not saying he’s coming back to play. Only that he’s contemplating his options and there’s no timetable for a decision.
Neither the Jets nor Byfuglien’s agent Ben Hankinson responded to a request for comment.
 
Byfuglien is 34 years old. He’s on the fourth year of a five-year contract with an AAV of $7.6M although he is scheduled to earn $8M this season and $6M next season.

Just when you finally start to appreciate the guy :lol:

 

Something must be up for him to leave all that money on the table. It would allow the Jets to pay Connor and Laine, but after trading Trouba their D would be one of the worst in the league. It's already ropey as is.

That is brutal for the Jets.  Hopefully Byfuglien is alright.  He's had a great career, even if a lot of his success came at the Canucks' expense.

 

Huge blow for the roster if Byfuglien does retire though.  Yikes.

 

There has to be a solid market for Laine and Connor though, if the Jets are forced to make significant changes and notwithstanding the overall cap crunch this offseason.  Might not be all bad.
