Mathieu Perreault wants to know "how much more" Jacob Trouba wants.

Per Perreault, "This guy plays big minutes, 22 minutes, and he's gonna complain some sort of way about his ice time?" Trouba is on record stating that he wants to be a top-four defenseman who plays on the right side, but that doesn't offer any more clarity to his current veteran teammate. Perreault went on to suggest that Trouba should come to camp anyway because if the Jets get off to a hot start, it could diminish his perceived value and therefore trade prospects.
