    No reports existed..... Laine camp demanding that amount.
    After year 2 his demand was playing more minutes.
    He is getting more minutes now, in return for him to round out his 2 way game.
    And he produced 28+35 =63 points in 68 games shorten season.....
    And he will be only 22 years old next season.
    If Heinola/Samberg or Vesalainen dont make the team. He will still be the youngest roster player in the Jets lineup...
    He will actually be almost same age as Samberg who was drafted in 2017.

    Both players will be very expensive,to trade for...Ehlers has a ton a value,with cost certainty along with being a very good player...Laine is a superstar sniper in the making,but has some huge dollars coming his way shortly...I dont think they end up moving both,but maybe one

    Does not Aho has a lot of chemistry with Laine plus they probably are good friends? Maybe Carolina moves one of their top 3 D for him as they are loaded with talented D and definitely Winnipeg needs a top 3 D coming back plus another good bottom 6 forward for him.

    I surely do not want to see that happen though being an Isles fan.

    The issue with Carolina is as has been said many times is that Pesce is the only RD with term, Hamilton is UFA and they have Svec contract coming up.

    So it should be a deal around Dman not names Slavin/Pesce if it was Carolina

    Then it would be a deal around players not named Laine/Ehlers

    Exactly. How do you know what you have until you get a real coach? What if he is traded as if he has 75 pt value and he becomes a 100+ point player on another team for the next 10 years.

    Probably an improvement if he favors the right players.

    Well, I doubt he would be favoring a player like Laine. I just find this take interesting. Some Jets fans complain that Maurice plays favorites with guys like Scheifele and Wheeler but they are looking for the same approach with their favorite players.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Pulock but I shoot him into the sun for Laine. If Pulock +Wahlstrom gets it done I think you gotta make that deal

    It would be a bad deal for the Islanders. It hurts the team short term and long term. The defense would have a hard time competing till Dobson could take the reigns. Im not convinced Laine could fit into any of our forward schemes. The Islander also could not afford Laine cap wise. Its just not a good deal.

    If there was a deal to be made I think it would have to be for Ehlers not Laine. Something like Ehlers and Pionk for Pulock and Eberle/Bailey. Pionk could attempt to hold down a spot till Dobson can take it. Ehlers fits into our top 6. Peg gets its local boy top pairing D man and Bailey/Eberle can replace some of what Ehlers did.

    There would need to be a significant add from Calgary.

    RNH signed 7 years at 7.25 and Nurse or Klefbom for Laine and Lowry

    Remove Winnipeg’s 10th and you’re closer.

    Dobson's already gotten pretty decent experience. I think you can shift it up a bit to start, like Pelech-Mayfield; Toews-Dobson as your top-4 until you're convinced Dobson's ready to jump onto the top pairing.

    Overall though I don't think the idea of dealing Pulock is as bad as some think. While good, he clearly benefits from playing with Pelech. He's probably more of a #3 type, and dealing him could not only get us a legit 1st line scorer for Barzal, but it'll also allow us to protect Mayfield and his $1.45M contract.

    Actually I kind like this and seem fair and can be a win-win for both teams. Under Trotz, maybe Pionk can learn to play defense better and become a good 2 way D.

    Both Ebs and Pulock are from the prairies by the way so they would probably love the trade.

    Laine had the same C (Scheifele) and better PP opportunities than Kyle Connor last season but nobody ever says Maurice's coaching was holding Connor back (he was on pace for 44 goals and 85 points). Strange.

    So Nurse, Bouchard, and 14 for Laine? Hmm that seems steep. I like laine, but that’s downright awful for the oilers long term

    I guess I would be making that trade on the assumption that Dobson plays a full year test year - seems like a reasonable step from playing 30 or so this year. I think Laine would fit pretty well on the PP and with Barzal. Or put him on a line with Pageau so teams can't just key down on the top line. We don't have a sniper, he's an elite sniper and we have a surplus of RD. On second thought I'm not sure we add something as big as Wahlstrom but I'd rather pay Laine than Pulock for sure
