Dreger: Jets ‘Terrified’ Of Potential Trouba Contract

(Juan Salas/Icon Sportswire)

Darren Dreger was on Vancouver’s TSN 1040 on Tuesday afternoon.

On the notion of whether or not a Jacob Trouba for Travis Hamonic trade is in the ballpark:

“It’s in the ballpark. I just think that the Winnipeg Jets are still a little unsure as to what they have in Jacob Trouba. I think that they think they’ve got a real good young defenseman here. I think that they’re terrified of what his contract is going to have to look like (laughs) in the future.

“Look, you can always bridge and go through all of that nonsense, but a six-year term at what – 6.5, 6.75 – I mean, that’s a lot of money invested in a player that you’re still trying to get a handle on.

“I think it’s a considerable long shot that Jacob Trouba gets traded between now and Monday. And if Cheveldayoff is willing to consider that, and the Hamonic situation is still a good fit, then they do that in the summer if it’s still there.”
