McKenzie: Winnipeg is actively trying to sign Byfuglien

TSN Hockey Insider joined the TSN 1200 Ottawa Senators pregame show and was asked about the pending UFA Status of Winnipeg Jets Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd:

“I don’t think there has been a lot of dialogue with Ladd, although the lines of communication are open. Both sides understand where each side is at, they know the gap they are dealing with and it remains to be seen whether anyone chooses to close that gap. At this point, it doesn’t appear that’s the case”.

“The sense does seem to be that Dustin Byfuglien is the player that Winnipeg is actively trying to sign. But whether they’re able to do that; that determination probably won’t be made for a while. I can assure you of this, if they determine they can’t sign Dustin Byfuglien, or Byfuglien is not prepared to sign back for what Winnipeg is offering, and he becomes available in trade. That’s the big buzz in terms of a rental that would generate significant interest amongst a lot of the big boys in the National Hockey League looking for a big boy like Byfuglien.”

Curse of the Winnipeg Jets Bobbleheads

Curse of the Winnipeg Jets Bobbleheads

From IllegalCurve.com

Bobbleheads are a great collectible for sports fans. They can be preserved in the box, or taken out to show it’s bobbling glory.

Unfortunately for the Winnipeg Jets, they haven’t had much on-ice success on bobblehead nights.
