If the  Winnipeg Jets fall out of the playoff race, all bets are off. Which brings us to to the possibility of a selloff, according to The Winnipeg Sun. With seven players due to become unrestricted free agents in the summer, there’s a threat of losing them all without receiving anything in return. That would be bad management. So if the Jets are out of the running, expect Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff to dangle Ron Hainsey and Nik Antropov, probably his two most tradeable UFA’s. But what if Winnipeg remains in the hunt, does that automatically preclude Cheveldayoff unloading one? “It doesn’t preclude it,” the GM said.

However if the team doesn’t fall out of the playoff race, Cheveldayoff would be looking for more scoring. “I’d love to be able to acquire something that could inspire some more scoring for us,” Cheveldayoff said. “Our left side with Ladd and Kane has played well. Wheeler on the right side has played well. And the guys that have been auditioning up and down the lineup on the right side, you’ve seen some good things and you’ve seen some times where you wish you had more.”
