    Die By the Blade trots out two interesting scenarios with the Winnipeg Jets: perhaps the Jets would cough up transition machine Nikolaj Ehlers for Ristolainen. If not, what about the intriguing combination of young Jack Roslovic and analytics darling Mathieu Perreault? The Jets have been willing to shrug their shoulders at analytics before (see: Myers, Tyler), so after losing Myers and Jacob Trouba, maybe they’d want Ristolainen?

    Ehlers, in particular, excites as a buy-low trade, but he’s not the only option.

    Honestly, I was half-joking here, yet if the Oilers would bite on Ristolainen for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins trade, poor Edmonton fans might get another taste of Peter Chiarelli-style blunders even after Chiarelli’s been replaced by Ken Holland.

    I would be very surprised if a 30 goal scorer with great analytics on a 6 year 6M AAV gets traded for Ristolainen. It is more reasonable I think that you would get Roslo and Perrault. I'm not sure as they didn't want to include Roslo in the potential Stone deal at the last deadline but things do change.

    buy low on Ehlers also throws me off. Buy low as in he was hurt this year so his numbers are lower? Seems like lazy reporting.
