    He should be worth a lot. One of the most elite goal scorers in the league. Too bad he wants out of Winnipeg. Thriving hockey market with a hockey obsessed fan base. Hope he ends up realizing that and stays.

    Laine isnt getting traded anytime soon. Chevy will drag this out until he gets a excellent return. Now that laine will play with a legit center all year he should be able to increase his trade value significantly. Right now is a horrible time to trade him imo

    I’m really not sure if 35y C is really legit center, and how much support will the forwards get from that blueline

    While he is 35, he is also a phenomenal playmaker and has proved he can play to his lines strengths which is a great partner for Laine.

    At this point he’s looking like a max 50 point player

    They all get old at some point

    Best center we could get when nobody wants to sign here because of the severe winter weather.

    This is why it is not a good idea to move out our star players we drafted because they can not be replaced at all because we can't sign big name free agents because we are on the no trade list for many star players.

    That is why Laine is not getting moved and we brought in Stastny to play with him and Ehlers.
    If people think about it is pretty obvious.

    From Buffalo: Serious Sam Reinhart, not-that-Rasmus Ristolainen and a 2022 2nd.

    :eek2:

    Best value so far

    Why even make a proposal that has a 0% chance of happening?

    I still believe that the odds of him being traded are unrealistic, i'm still abit worried about the lockertoom rumors though.. All of this still might have a negiative effect on him if he don't get traded.

    What exactly has Pulock won? Unless you've won the cup you've won nothing. Guess they're both losers.. c'mon

    Which is why Pulock is a good base for a trade for Laine. A top 4 D with good two way game. Islanders would need to add. Probably a A- prospect ( K Bellows) and a protected 1st.

    Laine did Pulock, the 20th pick in the 2021 draft and Bellows

    Laine plus Heinola, and your 2021 1st unprotected for Barzal

    Barzal is a significantly better player.

    Barzal is more valuable but that’s too much from the jets.

    I’m not sure it’s even enough. Barzal is their best player. I’d add Samberg. But islanders say no. He’s just not someone you trade.

    gotta aim lower for Laine. He’s not getting a Barzal. Not even with adds.

    RNH (extension in place) + Klefbom + 2021 1st for Laine and Beaulieu.

    Trade happens after the Expansion Draft so the Jets don't need to worry about protecting RNH/Klefbom. Hard to project what Winnipeg's lineup would look like that far out (especially considering there's no obvious choice for SEA) but I think it'd be something like this if they went 5/3/1 and Connor/Scheifele/Wheeler/Ehlers/Laine/Morrissey/DeMelo/Pionk/Hellebuyck were protected:

    Connor-Scheifele-Wheeler
    Ehlers-RNH-UFA
    Perfetti-Copp/UFA if Seattle takes ($3 mill)-Roslovic/UFA if Seattle takes (~$1 mill)
    Harkins-Gustafsson-Appleton
    Vesalainen Suess

    Morrissey-DeMelo
    Klefbom-Pionk (~$5 mill)
    Heinola-Niku
    Stanley/Poolman (if SEA takes one of them)

    Hellbuyck
    Berdin

    Using best guesses for the RFAs and Nuge (expectation is he gets around $6.5-7 mill) that leaves the Jets with around $9-10 million in cap space with Bryan Little on LTIR. That's certainly enough to sign or trade for a top-end winger. The Jets would have a nice blend of future talent in Perfetti/Heinola/Berdin and of course their vet core, with no major piece up for UFA until 2023 at the earliest.

    Islanders just keep Barzal, they need him more.

    Is he? 37 goals per 82 game average so far. Matthews is seven months older and averaging 46 goals per 82 games.

    Nope. The Jets would rather play Perfetti at 2C and no interest in Klefbom until he comes back and proves he can play with no ill effects.

    I agree they wouldn’t move Barzal, but let’s not get carried away about what teir of player he is. He has 1 ppg season 2 years ago. And while I’m not trying to say he isn’t a great player he’s not in a completely different teir, so far away that he’s ungettable with a Laine as the base.

    I don’t know, I actually think that’s not that bad of a deal, perfetti then slides into Laines spot or takes over 2C and RNH plays wing. I’m a fan of Klefbom though so that may be a part of it
