Things aren’t looking good in Winnipeg. Several core players want to leave the Jets. We’re talking about Pierre-Luc Dubois, Mark Scheifele and Connor Hellebuyck.
The news that Pierre-Luc Dubois wants to leave the Jets doesn’t come out of nowhere, and he’s the one most likely to leave. His contract expires this summer, and he certainly won’t want to extend it.
He’s not even interested in a one-year contract → https://t.co/xQ8VmZYRhY

He becomes a compensated free agent, but if he doesn’t want to play with the Jets, they’re going to have to trade him. If the Jets trade him, they can get something big in return for a player who wants nothing to do with the team.
Dubois has 63 points in 73 games this season. That’s a very good total, especially for a 24-year-old.
We recently learned that Connor Hellebuyck really doesn’t want to come back to Winnipeg.
Another rumor concerns the 2024 draft, which could take place in Vegas → https://t.co/yrG0b0giRT

As for Scheifele, we’ve suspected as much for a while, especially since rumors of a deal involving him have been flying everywhere in recent weeks. According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the Jets are already listening to offers for Scheifele.

That said, don’t forget that the Jets still have other good players on their team, such as Nikolaj Ehlers, Josh Morrissey and Kyle Connor. They’re likely to have their work cut out for them when the other three leave the team.
Kevin Cheveldayoff refuses to talk about a rebuild, but we have to be realistic. If he doesn’t manage to get a good return against Dubois, Scheifele or Hellebuyck, it’s going to be a rebuild in Winnipeg.
– Will Kent Hughes hit a home run with the Panthers’ pick?
#GoHabsGo fans were hoping the Florida Panthers’ pick would end up closer to the top of the first round.
But now that the Montreal Canadiens know the pick will be 31st or 32nd overall, it opens up several interesting options for GM Kent Hughes.

– It’s pitiful.
The last time the Edmonton Elks won at home, they were still called the Eskimos and the COVID-19 pandemic was still only illusory!
