So if i am looking at this right, including that last year qualifying offer that will at least be a 3 year deal with a 9 mill AAV.

A contentious negotiation between sniper Patrik Laine and the Jets ended with Laine signing a two year deal at 6.75 million per with the team still remaining control of his next deal, Laine will be a RFA again at the end of the contract. Essentially Laine is betting on himself by taking a super short deal and the Jets are kicking the can down the road.

 

  What a rough offseason it has been for the Jets. A few of the lowlights:

 

 They lost a wonderfully spirited first round series to eventual cup winner St. Louis. It was on the short list of top series for a neutral observer to enjoy for the pure hockey of it, but the Blues moved on and went on to win the cup and the Jets were left wondering what if.

 

 UFA trade addition Kevin Hayes had no desire to stick around and was moved out to the Flyers before free agency began for a 5th round pick.

 

Tyler Myers a safe steady blueliner, Big bad Dustin Byfuglien, and Jacob Trouba, all keys to the back end are gone with little coming in to replace them leaving the defense dangerously thin.

 

 Brandon Tanev, a wonderful 3rd liner who loves to hit and can score a bit as well left for Pittsburgh.

 

Laine complained to the media about not playing on the top line during his holdout. 

 

Breakout young star Kyle Connor continues his holdout as the season is days away.

 

As mentioned above Byfuglien is not with the team and it is a mystery if or when he will ever return.

 

  This organization looked poised to make multiple deep runs a few years ago, not saying the window is closed but man, it has been a brutal offseason. No team needs the puck to drop on 2019-20 more than the Jets.

I guess the positive is this: expectations, which were arguably too high, are now quite low as they do a mini-rebuild especially of their D.

 

The key for me is the state of the locker room. There were rumours of dissension swirling around the team late in the year, which was reflected in their play in March-April and into the playoffs. If that stuff is still in the room, could be a long, cold winter in the 'Peg.

Nice job by the Jets. Easy to get rid of this contract...and player.

 

And based on last season I'd suspect he will get traded. Especially when it seems he's one of the players causing mayhem in the locker room.
