Pens and Jets making moves...
Within minutes Wednesday, UFAs-to-be Daniel Winnik and Jiri Tlusty were shipped from lottery teams to playoff contenders.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, seemingly always looking for forward depth at this time of year, acquired Winnik from the Toronto Maple Leaves in exchange for forward Zach Sill, a fourth-round pick in 2015 and a second-round pick in 2016.

The Winnipeg Jets, who also placed key contributor Blake Wheeler on injured reserve Wednesday, obtained forward Jiri Tlusty from the Carolina Hurricanes for a third-round pick in 2016 and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2015.

Naturally, Twitter lit up like it was March 2 already

I did not know that the Jets are considered a contender. They played two more games than the Canucks but both clubs have the same points.

They are in contention for a playoff spot, is I think the gist of that statement.

So that's the going rate for depth UFA's, and what we would land for Richardson for example if Benning wants another pick or two. But I doubt JB makes a move like that, cause everyone knows in the market he wants a hockey deal!

Holy crap! 1st rounder and McKeown for a rental. *edit unless it's an conditional 1st rounder, that makes a little more sense.

With returns like those we have to be trading Higgins, Richardson and Matthias!!

Christ we could get 3-4 picks and a prospect or two :mrgreen:

Not sure who started it. I don't see it happening, no cap space nor assets to make it happen, unless TO thinks Matthias is the next Lindross.

People are saying Dreger said it

How is Winnik worth a 2nd and a 4th round pick? Higgins is worth 2 2nd rounders and a prospect in that market.

I am starting to think <ack> that the leaves stocked up on UFAs last summer just to trade them for picks this spring.

That's what I'm talking about. In that market we need to sell. Higgins, Richardson and Matthias if he does not commit to an extension. Shit Weber could fetch a 2nd in that market. Sbisa a first and a prospect. Sell Jim, sell.
