The Winnipeg Jets are another possible destination for Nick Holden’s services. The Jets could also use some veteran presence on the left side of the defense. The Jets are building up a nice looking defense on the right side with names such as Dustin Byfuglien, Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers, and Paul Postma.
Winnipeg’s left side of the defense contributed less than 12 goals all of last season and Holden could help give the Jets a boost in that category. Now it would take a Gorton heist to somehow land Trouba in a deal involving Holden but the Rangers also need help down the middle.
The Rangers could attempt to send a package of Holden + for one of the Jets’ center-men. Gorton and the Rangers need to improve down the middle after trading Derek Stepan to Arizona.
Winnipeg could be a potential suitor for Nick Holden’s services if the right deal was introduced between the Rangers and the Jets.
