Carolina Hurricanes: 5 possible destinations for Micheal Ferland

4 of 6

Flying out to Winnipeg

The Winnipeg Jets are another team who like to make a splash at the trade deadline. Last year they acquired Paul Stastny for the princely sum of a first round pick, prospect and a fourth round pick. With the team a contender again this year, they will surely look to get over the hump, having been upset by the Western Conference sensations from Vegas in last year’s Western Conference Finals.

Ferland would, yet again, slot into a top six role on the Jets. They have a big team – the likes of Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien are huge presences – but Ferland offers them something no-one else on the roster does. He may also be able to spark some life into Bryan Little, who continues to disappoint Jets fans on the back of his $5.3m AAV extension that kicked in this season.

Potential package: 2019 WPG 2nd round pick + Jack Roslovic

Jack Roslovic is a former first round pick and is stuck in a bottom six role on the Jets; his acquisition would allow the Canes to play Jordan Staal as a middle six center, taking the defensive zone starts and allowing Roslovic the opportunity to make an impact at the other end. He can also play wing, which is always a handy trait. Due to his potential, the Jets would only send a second round pick along with Roslovic.
