It seems strange as there was talk of many teams hotly pursuing Trouba. This was the very best deal??

Thought of Pionk, who was never Drafted, about a month ago, but greedy me, wanted the Ranger's 1st pick (a real pipe dream) not the 20th overall that we got back

Pionk, age 23, actually had a decent start, in his 2nd year as a Pro, but flailed in the latter 1/2 of the season in his numbers.
His plus/minus was not good but he logged a lot of short handed minutes which were quite comparable to Trouba, who played 9 more games.
The kid laid out more hits then Trouba but blocked less shots. However, his Turnover difference was only at a -22, whereas Trouba was at a BAD, -38.

Chevy did okay ...... but Pionk needs to blossom & the 20th overall pick has to become a decent player to completely satisfy the masses.
Onward Chevy ..... now land us a good 2nd line centerman & dump Kulikov.

Cap space. Trouba was never signing long term in Winnipeg. This will give us 5.5 - 7.5 in cap space to sign other players that want to play in Winnipeg.

Excuse me for sounding like a Huge fan of Pionk but ..... the Rangers, on the Turnover Ratio, only had 4 players at 0 to a +8 whereas the Jets had 12 players above zero .....
then down to Trouba at -38 & Chiarot at -43.  Found that interesting & maybe part of how Chevy viewed the kid's upside.
