No there isn’t, that’s one poster pure speculation
I could get behind the idea of Anderson+Murray+Bemstrom for Ehlers+pick
From a Habs perspective, there is a risk in Laine. He's already shown a he can score 44 and drop to 30.
A 44 goal player is elite....and so is his salary. A 30 goal scorer is more in the 5-7 milion range.
Laine is going to want to be paid Marner and Matthews money. Obviously the strenious denials from Jets fans is that you know that it will hurt.
Don't worry, Laine is going to see that if he takes 6 million, Jet fans will love him.
Keep sleeping on that old pre Marner and Matthews Leafs pillow.....
I would recommend you stick to facts only.
The fact is Laine is signed now at 6.75 million and will absolutely get a deserved raise......to what level depends on many factors.....his performance, flat cap, his peers, term, etc. To-date there has been no approved source stating what those demands are.
If that’s true Domi is going to demand 8 mil right?
Awful for Winnipeg. Absolutely awful.
If you think you’re getting a better player 1 for 1, for Laine, you’re dreaming in technicolor!
That offer wasn’t even 1 for 1. Laine is far better than Hischier and yet Winnipeg is giving up more value for him?
The jets are getting their #2 center, locked up for 7 more years at a team friendly deal whereas Laine will want to break the bank and has two less years of team control.
Those are things Gm’s look at but might be insignificant to the everyday fan. They don’t only look at points!
What 30 goal scorers make 5mil?
If you don't have a good enough top pairing D or 2C, how does that address the need?
Laine will end up being paid more because he’s two or three tiers above Hischier. The Jets would rather just sign him than to give him up for a lesser piece of while moving down in the draft.
If the jets trade laine, they will regret it for the next decade+
Classic HF: Guy offers a 3rd line winger and calls him a 2nd line C.
the return for laine would have to fill the team's need.
a proven #2 centre younger than shief and a top 4 d that will clear the net.
i do not believe a trade is going to happen at the present time, unless that exact type of trade is made.
if there is 1 thing chevy has proven is that he is a patient man.
i can see the season starting and trying to fill the positions in-house.
there is the available cash to give laine a decent raise, if need be.
i do not see any major trades for the jets till the deadline.
BILLECK: Jets GM Cheveldayoff could benefit from a little ruthlessness this off-season | Winnipeg Sun
Lets not trade Laine.
A different coach will most likely use hims as a goal scorer not a 2way player.
Then he will score all those goals.
And torch the Jets for the next decade...
I am starting to feel sorry for Jets fans as posts like this about their player must be really taxing. You are the second absolutely out of touch poster that I have posted about in this thread alone.
Brooklyn called their bridge has an opening.
Glad to know I wasn’t totally off at least from a CBJ perspective on adding Bemstrom.
I feel like Ehlers would make such a big difference. Of course, he already does — in Winnipeg.
Prove to me that Hischier is better than Laine.
Why not fire Maurice, and see how Laine does then?
A Finnish Five staple for sure.
A star player doesn't need the coach to perform. Laine played with Scheifele for the most part, and on the #1 PP. He had the 6th most ice time of all RWs in the league. Oh, and Connor managed to score 38 goals last season with Maurice as his coach.
Laine has had remarkable success as a scorer under Maurice in his first 4 seasons, starting at age 18.
Ok. Forget Laine.
How about firing PoMo because he has a ceiling as a coach? And he can't get it done? Not to mention the fact he's been there for like seven years.
