3 Best Contracts On The Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets are a dangerous team this season because they have production coming from everywhere due to many really good contracts. There are a number of strong contracts on the team outside of the three best we go through below. So here they are.

Sean Monahan

Sean Monahan was brought over from the Montreal Canadiens this season and has done even better offensively. He has always had a strong two-way ability, but has 13 goals and 24 points in 33 games after 13 goals and 35 points in 49 games for the Canadiens. Monahan is the second line center for Winnipeg, averages 18 minutes per game, and his cap hit is $1.985 million AAV.

Gabriel Vilardi

Gabriel Vilardi has made the Pierre-Luc Dubois trade completely one-sided for the Jets in that Vilardi has been very good when he has been in the lineup. While missing time this season, he has still managed to score 21 goals and 35 points in 46 games. Over a full season, that is a lot of production from someone with a low cap hit of $3.427 million AAV. He is also on the top line and has another year left on his deal. If he stays healthy, the Jets will be reaping the rewards far more than they even have this season.

Josh Morrissey

Josh Morrissey goes about his business quieter than many of the team's top defensemen, but he is very good. He has put up a sneaky 69 points this season and logs over 24 minutes per game. The Jets are fortunate enough to have him on a great deal for a number one defenseman at $6.25 million AAV through 2028. His offensive potential has been unlocked under Rick Bowness and Morrissey won't turn back now.
