Not every trade works out in your favour and it's one that some Toronto Maple Leafs' fans would like to see reversed. Nazem Kadri shipped out to Colorado for Tyson Barrie and Alexander Kerfoot. Barrie has been a bit of disappointment in Toronto while Kerfoot has dealt with injuries and a suspension so we haven't really gotten the chance to see what he's got. Barrie is UFA after the season and it's pretty much guaranteed he's gone. Where could he go?Jake Rill of Bleacher Report believes he's headed back to the Western Conference. "One fit for Barrie could be with the Winnipeg Jets, who need some help on defense after losing stalwarts Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers, Ben Chiarot and Dustin Byfuglien in the past year. They have some solid youngsters, but Barrie could provide a veteran presence that leaves the team less reliant on goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.There may not be a ton of long-term deals signed this offseason because of cap uncertainty, but the Jets could be in position to feel comfortable inking Barrie to a three-year deal to lead their defense for the near future."Rill predicts a three year deal worth $20million in total.
