Report: Jets still willing to offer Trouba 6-year contract
While it appears Jacob Trouba and the Winnipeg Jets have drawn a line in the sand, the club is still reportedly hoping to nail down a long-term deal.
The Jets are reportedly prepared to offer a six-year contract with an annual average value of $5.5 million, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Thursday's Insider Trading segment.
That being said, Dreger also noted that Trouba's camp is not in a crossroads about money, but rather they don't agree with the player's fit and usage with the Jets.
As far as potential trade partners, Dreger insisted that several Canadian teams are reportedly interested, but that Trouba doesn't feel there's a good fit with any of them.
Trouba has until Dec. 1 to sign a contract or be traded, or he'll be ineligible to play this season.
