The Winnipeg Jets have already made quite a few moves. Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers were brought in as part of the package deal in return for Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian. The Jets also purchased Jiri Tlusty as a rental from the Carolina Hurricanes for a third and a conditional fifth or sixth round pick.
This does not mean Kevin Cheveldayoff's job is done. As teams try to shuffle their roster and cap to fit new pieces, the Jets may be able to pry a few lower depth pieces in upgrading their own.
Let's take a look at a few defenders who should be on the Jets 2015 trade deadline shopping list.

The game was a battle of wills between goaltenders that continued even into the overtime.
Patrick Berglund opened up the scoring in the second off a pass from Paul Statsny, with Mark Scheifele responding in the third to tie it up. The game then continued tied until the shootout, where the Blues scored two in the first round and the Jets were only able to come up with one.

The Jets enter today's game *still* holding onto the first Wild Card spot in the west with a 31-20-11 record. This is good enough for fourth in the Central Division and fifth in the Western Conference. Divisional rivals St. Louis Blues meanwhile carry a 38-18-4 record.
Jets won their last game in regulation and are 5-2-3 in their last ten. Stars also lost their last game, although in regulation, and are 5-5-0 over their last 10.
