The Jets traded the defenceman to the New York Rangers on Monday for defenceman Neal Pionk, and the Rangers' first round draft pick (20th overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft. "I would say all of last night I was a little thrown off, but now that it's settling in, I'm excited for the opportunity in Winnipeg".
Trouba intends to marry his fiance in the near future and wants her to be happy in her career.
On the contrary, some other GMs are not like this and like to get trades done quick, whether it means getting a good return for the player (s) or not. The Rangers will need to extend a $5.5 million qualifying offer for the 2019-20 season before working on a long-term extension, as Trouba can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. "So I don't think I'll have a problem adjusting to Winnipeg".
Pionk, who turns 24 in July, has appeared in 101 games for the Rangers in the past two seasons, with 33 assists and seven goals.
"It's amusing, I grew up in a town called Hermantown, which is right outside Duluth", Pionk said.
"Of course, it is cold up in Duluth".
It's a surprisingly cheap price to pay for the 25-year-old Trouba, even with his status as a restricted free agent in need of a new contract. Gorton said he has a ballpark idea of what it will take to sign Trouba to a lengthy contract.

Before playing the match against England, India will be up against Afghanistan on June 22 and the West Indies on June 27. It is also expected that there will be splattering of blue on the collar of the said new jersey.
He's coming off one of his finest seasons as a pro, recording a career-high 50 points (eight goals, 42 assists).
This was as much a life decision as it was a hockey decision, and the Rangers ended up being the beneficiary - and might be for a long time.
He didn't want to commit to anything in the hours after the first trade of his professional career.
Trouba didn't have any trade protections, so Winnipeg could have traded him anywhere. But Trouba sounded open to the possibility of staying with the Rangers for a while. As it stands, that will hamper the Rangers' chances of going all-in on free-agent star winger Artemi Panarin - who has been linked most often with the Rangers and Florida Panthers. I'd say that's a decisive advantage for NY.
It didn't have to be NY, but it doesn't hurt.
"It's a great opportunity for myself and my fiancée", Trouba said. "That was definitely important to me - both of us".
