Not long ago we discussed Team USA not taking their best players while looking at NHLEs. The NHLEs allowed us to compare the invited and non-invited players across the multiple different leagues, like the CHL and NCAA.

It should be noted that since that article went out, Jets' prospect Kyle Connor went hot and scored 6 points in 2 games, which would have given him the third highest NHLE on the team if he had been invited. So Kyle Connor is one of the 3 highest scoring eligible Americans.

Looking at the numbers though, there is another piece of evidence that suggests passing on Jets' prospect Jack Roslovic was an error as well.

Over the past two practices the Winnipeg Jets' coach Paul Maurice has tried something a little bit different: Jacob Trouba has been removed from his natural right-side to the left of Dustin Byfuglien, and away from Mark Stuart.

There are some indications that this is move in the right direction for the Jets, but also that there is one step further the Jets could take as well.

Let's take a look.

Report: Ladd, Byfuglien, Trouba looking for combined 152 million in new deals

The Winnipeg Jets' owners don't have the deep pockets of many of their peers around the league; the Jets have the least salary on the books of any NHL team this season. 

But it's hard to be spend-thrift when negotiating with franchise players. The Jets' captain, Andrew Ladd, and best player (right? we all agree on this?) Dustin Byfuglien are due to reach free agency this summer, while Jacob Trouba, Mark Scheifele, and Adam Lowry are impending restricted free agents.

According to Tim Campell of the Winnipeg Free Press, those negotiations have started out with some very big numbers:

League and player sources have confirmed that Jets captain Andrew Ladd has asked for a six-year deal worth at least $41 million, that defenceman Dustin Byfuglien has requested $55 million over eight years and that defenceman Jacob Trouba wants more than $56 million over the maximum eight years allowed in the league’s CBA with its players.
