This isn’t YouTube.
It’s not? I guess that’s why I’ve been having trouble finding videos.
It’ll be ok. Just keep your nose clean.
Is there any chance Laine refuses to report to Jet’s camp?
No, as confirmed by his agent. This whole situation is totally overblown.
Getting maximum return for trading Laine is a very hard thing to quantify.
I would say the jets have three really good scoring wingers which should be enough without including Laine.
Jests prospects in the pipeline look like good complimentary pieces.
My take is that it would be good to get players we need right now to add to the team (top 2 defence and maybe a really good tough forward that has a two way game.). But the jets are in no place to be desperate at all.
Worse case scenario is Laine walks when he is a ufa. I’d be ok with that rather than getting something in return that we don’t need.
If I was in Chevys position just wait until a trade comes your way that makes the team better. If not no big deal.
I remember this happening in Vancouver with Bure. It got pretty ugly, and the Canucks had to trade him. They did get Jovo in return, so hopefully the Jets get similar return for their young scoring star.
I agree. The Jets bent the Rangers over in that trade. They essentially moved Trouba for Pionk (which seems like a wash at worst) and got a blue-chip prospect on top of that.
I'm sure the Jets would be pleased with a similar return for Laine.
To CBJ for Werenski and Foudy.

The place is full of insightful comments like that. And lots of ads.
One deal I heard yesterday would send Barzal and a pick to Winnipeg for Laine...
HockeyBuzz.com - Eklund - Source: Patrik Laine Will Be Traded. And The Isles Could Offer Up Barzal.
Laine is a guy who I see as being a lot like Boeser in Vancouver, put up massive numbers as a rookie and then injuries and changes in usage led his stats to slip quite a bit...difference is I think that while Laine has the higher upside in terms of tools and raw talent, with Boeser it seems like he just goes about his business even when the puck isn't going in for him or he isn't getting the opportunities, Laine tends to get frustrated and sulky and it affects his play. That's not good because he's a pretty streaky guy with his production.
It's a bit strange because who does Winnipeg really have who is gonna bump him off of a top winger spot? It's not like they have any kind of crazy depth at wing, sure Maurice likes to go with a more balanced and less top-heavy lineup than a lot of coaches do but it feels like there is something else going on there, some kind of personality or team chemistry issue. Probably gonna impact the leverage and therefore his trade value if other GMs feel like Winnipeg is looking to make a deal.
There are definitely some teams that would be a good fit and have the assets to do something, Carolina and Boston are two that come to mind. Edmonton could certainly use a scoring winger but what would they have to give up to get Laine, that's the big question.
I’ve never seen that first one. Usually it’s just people bragging they were first to post, without adding anything else. Like it’s such an accomplishment that a person was the first to comment on a video.
As long as McDuff doesn’t show up you should keep your head.
Barzal is worth more than Laine so the + is on the wrong side.
Isles don't even do Barzal for Laine straight up. Not going to happen.
I heard the same thing. Please visit my website. Thank You
Why would the Islanders trade their young number one centre for a winger?
the plus is on the wrong side and not enough pluses to boot
Cause they are getting Stammer
queue warning in 5 3 1
Not a single GM in the world would take Laine over Barzal
