PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers have signed centre Kevin Hayes to a $50 million, seven-year contract. Hayes becomes the Flyers’ third-highest paid player with a deal worth $7.14 million per season and should step in as their new No. 2 centre behind Sean Couturier. General manager Chuck Fletcher announced the signing Wednesday, saying the 6-foot-5, 216-pound Hayes "plays a smart, two-way game and is just entering the prime of his career." Philadelphia acquired Hayes’ negotiating rights from Winnipeg for a fifth-round pick during the Stanley Cup Final. The Jets got him from the New York Rangers at the trade deadline in February. Hayes

Center Kevin Hayes is close to signing a seven-year, $50 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, removing another key player from the free agent pool, TSN reported. The Flyers acquired Hayes on June 3 from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a fifth-round selection, simply to have the first shot at signing him. "By gaining the rights to Kevin at this time, it provides us with an opportunity to negotiate with him prior to July 1 when he is due to become an unrestricted free agent," Flyers executive vice president and general manager Chuck Fletcher said when the trade was completed.

Jets Can’t Win a Nikolaj Ehlers Trade

Date: 2019-06-19

In hindsight, the Winnipeg Jets lucked out when they selected Nikolaj Ehlers ninth overall in the 2014 NHL draft. Only five players from his draft have outscored him, with all of them doing so in more games played. Ehlers is an ultra-skilled, speedy, crafty, scoring winger. He is 23-years-old and is coming off his third consecutive 20-goal campaign. He is on an extremely team-friendly contract with term and cost certainty and has proven he plays well with the Jets best line. So, should the Jets trade this player? If you answered yes to this question, you have unfortunately missed your chance to be part of former general manager Peter Chiarelli’s management team with the Edmonton Oilers.

Morrissey has been great. Can he remain that way without Trouba? The Winnipeg Jets best defenceman is Josh Morrissey. For the past two seasons, Morrissey has played on a pair with Jacob Trouba to great success. That will end this upcoming season as Trouba has been traded, but hopefully Morrissey’s success will continue with whomever he is partnered with in this upcoming season. Player Season Team Position

There Are Three Ways To Look At The Trouba Trade

Date: 2019-06-18

I’ve been told that it’s not crazy if you talk to yourself, or even if you answer yourself. I have been told though it is when you argue with yourself and unfortunately in the wake of the Jacob Trouba trade to New York for Neal Pionk and the 20th overall pick, I found myself Monday night debating the pros and cons of said trade. Some are incredulous over the deal. Some actually support it. Before I fully commited either way, I had to talk things out and what followed was a Mick “three faces” type conversation between the side of me that always likes being hopeful that these types of deals work out, the pessimistic side of me that has maybe spent way too much time on Twitter, and the neutral side that tries to be the voice of reason in the end… Pessimistic Art: This is an awful trade. I refuse to believe Kevin Cheveldayoff made this deal. Are we sure Peter Chiarelli didn’t steal Chevy’s phone? Hope
