NHL Rumors: Winnipeg Jets Looking to Complete Blockbuster

After missing the playoffs the last season, the Winnipeg Jets have rebounded beautifully this campaign and should make the postseason because of it. As a result, they are expected to be big buyers at the trade deadline, and they already have been linked to several players because of it. Yet, and appears that they have the rise on a major prize, as The Fourth Period has reported that the Jets are one of the teams interested in star winger Timo Meier.

When looking at Winnipeg’s roster, it is clear that they could use another top-tier talent on offense. Meier would absolutely provide them with that, as he is a legitimate top-six winger who produces a plethora of offense. Yet, he has the potential to do even more with the Jets, as he would have far better offense of weapons to work with.

There are several teams making a push for the star, so it is clear that the Jets have a lot of competition to successfully acquire him. We will need to wait and see if these two clubs end up striking a deal before the deadline from here.
