    I'm surprised you would want to trade Laine for.. that...

    That's a no from Edmonton. RNH to little is a pretty big downgrade. Losing Larsson hurts our defense and we throw away the future. No thanks

    Little's NMC kills the trade immediately. No team is trading for Laine without a signed contract.

    Let's pretend Little modifies his NMC, as he is a hometown boy.

    If you took out the first from Edmonton......it would still be a no from me. (But I like RNH and Larsson, so I may be a little biased)

    Can you imagine Laine-McDavid-Draisaitl line? We're talking a line that would strike fear into the hearts of opposing fans. D-Men would be trembling in their skates, especially on the PK. Were looking at 50+ Laine for years. McDavid leading scorer for most of the 20s. Drai will be 100+ point player. It would be the the most dominant 1st line of the last 20 years.

    Don't know when the last time Little actually lived in Edmonton. I could see Little waiving if he was going to a contending team, but geez not the Oilers. It's almost a bad fit for a trade, two team that cap issues. At least the Jets have cap issues with good players, the Oilers cap issues not quite as pressing but with generally two great players and not much more.

    This thread bets against itself.

    No

    Trade away Larsson from our defense and that pick is guaranteed top 5. This trade also forces us to split up the best duo in the league - something we really shouldn't be doing.

    Not really worth it, even with Laine.

    Can you imagine the laughter at the other 3 lines? Little/Neal/Chiasson as a 2nd line and then try to name 3 other forwards if you're not actually an Oilers fan.

    After a thousand years of rebuilding and spending to the cap.

    Really funny to add Little who Laine absolutely can't wait to NOT play with.

    Point is to send Laine off for cheap, move his mortal enemy with him so he never gets a proper center?

    lol...too funny.

    Edmonton fans: Horrible trade for Oilers. Laine is overrated, Little is not close to RNH, and we cant give up Larsson, as we have no Defensive depth

    Winnipeg fans: Give up Laine??? Are you nuts??? He is the next Ovechkin. Horrible trade for the Jets.

    Our defence would be a complete shambles after this and we’d have added probably 4 mil in cap after it’s all said and done. Pass.

    The main reason I wouldn't do this trade as an Oiler fan is that Laine is about to get overpaid, big time.

    Laine is not going anywhere.

    What a pathetic fantasy trade return that would be for him.

    Oilers can't afford to do this at all.
