so here's what FotWJ has to say about contracts coming up:
These are the Jets RFA's & UFA's
Among the RFA's Trouba is the big question mark. The Jets are not going to allow him to walk away after next season and it seems the Jets and Trouba's agent have until the draft to work out a long term deal. if not, a trade is very likely.
With the UFA's many will be gone. Unlikely the Jets can afford Myers & Hayes next season.
Tanev and Chiarot will be at the top of the list to resign but both could opt for free agency and get more from another team. Of the other NHL experienced UFA's Lindholm is a possibility to resign.
With serious cap issues next season, the Jets need players still on ELC's. Poolman, Niku, Vesalainen and Appleton fit that bill. Roslovic should get a regular spot in the lineup
Mathieu Perreault while having a modified no trade clause, may still be on the trade block as they look to save on his 4.25 million salary.
It will be an interesting off season and the benefit of being out early is more time to negotiate with the free agents.
bummer, I'd hate to have to retire this GIF though
