    I know there's already a Laine mega-thread; but what are Winnipeg hoping to get back for these guys?

    I feel like Winnipeg don't know what they want with Laine. Do they want a PF ? Sniper ? 2 way f ?

    Just deal him at this point and let him play his true role, sniper.

    I've wanted Ehlers in SJ for a while now but I don't really see a deal to be made that would fit Winnipeg's needs.

    The rumor that has swirled around Winnipeg is that Laine wants a big 2nd contract. Think Marner big. The Jets are really unsure if they want to spend that on him

    I’d love either on my team but I seriously doubt they would move them

    Would this package be fair for Laine?

    No it wouldn't. Montreal doesn't really have the pieces to land Laine.

    For 2 years now, I've wanted to see Laine on the Isles beside Barzal.

    I don't think Lou would want to pay the price (Dobson) though.

    I would think half that would be fair. Domi + 1st.

    It would be nice that Marner wasn't by himself on overpaid island.

    Laine+ to the Devils for Hughes.

    Hischier would be such a great C for Laine, I feel.

    The issue is that most teams would want those players, few has the pieces it takes to acquire them and fewer have the pieces and want to trade them. Like with most elite players you are likely looking at quantity for quality, not sure this will be of interest for WPG. Not sure WPG will be interested in picks and prospects.

    I think it would end up being something like Pulock, Wahlstrom, and maybe another smaller add. I think something with cap and value(Pulock) would have to be going back, especially if Laine is looking for a big raise.

    Domi + (16th or Caufield) + Mete + St Louis 2nd

    Sign Laine to 7 x 10

    The issue here is that so few teams, if any at all, have the depth necessary to trade a 2nd line center or a top pairing defenseman for a winger. Nothing will end up happening, imo.

    That's true, I often forget NYI will be up against the cap. They may need to shed another salary too.
