So while the potential for a bigger-name addition remains at the top of the wish list for Cheveldayoff, let’s take a closer look at several under-the-radar candidates who could end up on the Jets’ radar during the coming week:
D Patrik Nemeth, Detroit Red Wings
2020-21 stats: 39 GP, 2 G, 6 A, 8 P, 14 PIM, 18:32 TOI
Contract status: $3 million AAV, pending UFA
The skinny: A sturdy defender at six-foot-three and 228 pounds, the Jets would be familiar with Nemeth from his time in the Central Division with the Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars. Some of his underlying numbers need improvement, but he could provide a valuable insurance policy.
