The latest on Ladd

Trade speculation has begun swirling around the Jets captain after a report surfaced Monday morning that the team had broken off contract talks. Ladd has been with the franchise since he was traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Atlanta Thrashers in 2010, one year before they relocated to Winnipeg.

It’s time for the Jets to trade Ladd

Purgatory for Andrew Ladd has turned into hell for the Winnipeg Jets.

There needs to be resolution regarding Ladd and his future for the Jets to move forward.

McKenzie: Byfuglien, Ladd Hot Topic for NHL Execs

“The No. 1 question I was asked this week was, ‘What’s Chevy going to do?’ And everybody wants to know what Chevy is going to do… what’s he going to do with Ladd and Byfuglien. Two guys, unrestricted free agents. They’ve had contract negotiations. I think Ladd seems to be further down the road than Byfuglien, but neither one of them is close to being done.

Heika: What it could cost to trade for Winnipeg defensemen Dustin Byfuglien

Do you think the Stars will make a play to get Dustin Byfuglien? What’ll it cost? Also, do the Stars start looking for a new goalie prospect since Jack Campbell isn’t doing too well?

Heika: I do think the Stars are in the market for a high-end defenseman, and they will be in talks with any that are available. Alex Goligoski, Jason Demers and Jordie Benn can all become UFAs in the summer, and Jim Nill is in the process of assessing those players. He also has two capable youngsters in Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleskiak, as well as three great prospects in the minors.

Are the Caps interested in Dustin Byfuglien?

According to TSN’s Elliotte Friedman, the Caps at least have interest in a big name defenseman to take his place. In his 30 Thoughts column, Friedman writes, “With Brooks Orpik’s health situation uncertain, a couple of sources indicated to check Washington’s interest in Dustin Byfuglien. There’s logic to this, as their cap hits are within $300,000 of each other.”
