There are a few options that the Jets could be looking at that could make sense with their team.

The Potential Options The Jets Could Be Looking At

The couple names that have be thrown around for the Flyers are defensemen, Rasmus Ristolainen and Nick Seeler both players would be beneficial to the Jets lineup.

The Jets have been plagued as a team with defensive woes for the past couple of years, bolstering their defensive has been their focus for a bit of time now.
