    Is this the biggest fall from grace we have seen in the last decade?

    Believe he is talking about total points as Hayes and Petry both have 38 points and Laine only has 36 points.

    Hayes has been a beast this season. Some team will be very lucky to get him for their cup run.

    I guess if Laine had 25 assists right now nobody would be calling him a washed up bum and popping threads to **** on him.

    Except Laine doesn't have 25 assists. Heck, the guy had just 26 assists all of last year!

    Two players have more assists than Laine or calling him a overrated bum.

    These two players combined have less goals than Laine.

    The thread is pointing out that those 2 players who are not known for getting points have more than Laine. He is not an over rated bum but his play of late definitely deserves criticism. He’s young, he’ll be back to normal soon enough hopefully

    Would you say that based on his play of late that Laine right now IS an overrated bum, but that his rating may fluctuate?

    Tomas Hertl has the same number of goals as Patrik Laine.

    Oh look, another poop-on-Laine thread. I'm not a big fan of Mr. Fortnite, but this is getting ridiculous.

    Hayes and Petry would look pretty good on the Jets!

    Dont think that’s fair to say yet. His first two years he did great, it’s not like he forgot how to score and play hockey, just in a bad slump and he is probably in his own head. He certainly hasn’t earned a 9/10 million dollar contract that he will probably receive, Yet I wouldn’t be worried that he will be worth it very soon. I wouldn’t call him over rated because of his age. Slumps happen to all great players as well.

    If he could just put forth consistent effort he could become one of the best goal scorers ever.

    My buddy scouted for Mckeen's for a few years and I remember him telling me about the scouting reports he read about Laine pre draft. Basically a lot said he was an extremely gifted goal scorer with amazing quick release but was a player with very low hockey IQ and positioning and if he didn't have such an amazing shot he wouldn't play in the NHL.

    I guess you'd be right on that he is just not having a good year up to this point which most players do at one point in time in their careers.

    He'll get out of the slump, young player. He'll figure it out.

    Has it been 15 minutes since the last "Laine sucks" thread already?

    Surprised the Canucks aren't throwing the Fortnite comments back in his face.

    Meh I feel like his comments were taken out of context anyway.
