FWIW, Laine strikes me as a guy that probably doesn't care that much about money. He's rich now, he's going to be very rich no matter what, but he strikes me as a guy that wouldn't care about maximizing his money, or even where he plays. We are where we are today because of the depth we have. Hopefully he realizes that eating up 1/8 of the team salary would change that. This is just my musings of course, I have no idea how much he'll get.
