The Winnipeg Jets decided to healthy-scratch Nate Schmidt early in the season. This can be hard on an athlete, and some believe he could ask for a change of scenery.

Two teams could be interested in acquiring him, despite the two seasons left on his important $5,950,000 AAV contract.

Chicago Blackhawks


The Blackhawks are building their team around Connor Bedard. For the moment, it's the blue line that's struggling in Chicago.

Getting a reliable veteran defenseman would be a great move.

The organization sits on a lot of potential trade assets and have the necessary cap space to get him.

Philadelphia Flyers


The Flyers are slowly starting to cause a surprise in the NHL. They currently have a 3-1-1 record and let's face it, they look good on the ice.

With Sean Couturier's return, the addition of Garnet Hathaway and the rise of Cam Atkinson, they are turning into a silent threat in the NHL.

Daniel Briere is in a good position to made moves. They have many assets to trade, and getting Schmidt would be a great addition to the Flyers' blue line.
