Meech and Postma, playing similar, offensive styles, can’t both stay, can they? Postma, not on Wednesday’s roster, likely has the agonizing chore of waiting for Friday to get his last chance.
Postma scored 12 goals and 45 points last season with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, earning a one-game tryout with the big club. He's proved himself ready for the NHL but it remains uncertain whether he will receive a chance with the Jets this season.
Postma is what they call a "bubble guy" — he could land on the big club, or fall back to the farm.
Postma could make the roster as a spare defender as he has little left to prove at the AHL level. The former WHL standout scored 12 goals and 45 points last season for the Chicago Wolves. With Tobias Enstrom and Zach Bogosian ahead of him on the depth chart, don't expect too much production from the 22-year-old.
