Three Jets asking for combined $152 million: report @NHLdotcom

Winnipeg Jets forward Andrew Ladd and defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Jacob Trouba have requested contracts that add up to more than $152 million, the Winnipeg Free Press reported Monday.

According to the report, Ladd, who is the Jets captain, has asked for a six-year contract worth at least $41 million. He has eight goals and 10 assists in 30 games this season. Ladd, who turned 30 on Saturday, is in the final season of a five-year, $22 million contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Byfuglien, who turns 31 in March, reportedly has asked for an eight-year contract worth $55 million. His 20 points (eight goals) are fourth on the Jets. Byfuglien's five-year, $26 million contract expires after this season; he too can become an unrestricted free agent.

Trouba was Winnipeg's first-round pick (No. 9) at the 2012 NHL Draft. According to the Free Press, the 21-year-old is asking for more than $56 million over the maximum eight years allowed in the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement. Trouba can become a restricted free agent next summer; his entry-level contract expires after this season.

Jets forwards Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry, along with goalie Michael Hutchinson, each is playing on a contract that will expire after the season and can become a restricted free agent.
