Say what you will, the Winnipeg Jets will be a weaker team in the near future if Andrew Ladd is traded in the next few days. Despite coming out of an injury funk to lead the team in scoring over the past little while , it would seem that the  Winnipeg Jets brass are going fishing for picks and prospects while using Andrew Ladd as bait.  But what if there is no takers?  What if the asking price for the left winger is too high?  Would the Jets have no choice but to sign him if there are no willing trade partners? I would think so, because losing Andrew Ladd to free agency would be the final nail in the Chevy coffin. In the meantime, the Winnipeg Jets have a game to play, and again it's against the Dallas Stars, in the second of a home and home series.

*Announced today, Bryan Little is done for the year, due to a T6 vertebrae compression fracture. It'll take a bit of time, but it will heal up in the next few months, so he'll get his training in and he'll be ready to go next season. However, it will be interesting to see how this impacts the Andrew Ladd contract/ trade situation.  Matt Halischuk has been recalled from the Moose.
