Tkachuk should get more than Laine. 

Would you trade either of those players for Boeser?

Laine had 50 points 82 games

Boeser had 56 in 69 games

Tkachuk has 77 in 80

Marner had 94 in 82

 

despite being in the same age group, Laine is in no business asking for Marner type money or the rumored 10 million he is after.  He is not even on the tier of Tkachuk although Laine's agent can attempt previous years negotiating.  Players are negotiated on teams more recent performance.

 

If anything they are acutally waiting on what Boeser will sign for then Chevy will use that as the basis of what he will offer.

Yes but the real question is would you take MT for OJ?

 Laine is trash just like the jests

Laine had a tough year for the high standards he set for himself with his first 2 seasons. He might lack that edge or compete but man can he rip a puck. He's only 21. He's not a phenom but a very gifted scorer. If he can add some speed and tenacity to his game, he will become extremely valuable to the Jets or whatever team he skates for.

 

And the numbers don't lie when it comes to his top end shot. Laine has scored 110 goals since 2016-17, sixth most in the NHL in that span. Accomplishing this from ages 19-21 is in a word, impressive.

 

Keep in mind, his goals and assists would increase if he were to find a permanent home alongside Scheiffle and Wheeler. Unfortunately for him, Connor has claimed that spot in their lineup over the past year and a half.

 

I'm banking for Laine to bet on himself this coming season and score 45+ goals. I think he is a proud guy and wants to put the rest of the hockey world on notice.

 

*Not worth 10 million. Not even close. I think if he wants that type of money he should sign a bridge deal and prove it with his play and show consistency for a few years and crack 80-90 points per.

Treliving wouldn't even finish his sentence before I pull this trigger.

Tkachuk?  Absolutely.  Laine?  I'll stick with Brock.

I think people are underrating Laine on these boards. He's a perennial 30 goal scorer, and scored 44 goals in only his second season. He had a bad year last year, other than his ridiculous November, but I'm sure he'll find more consistency in the future. Is he worth $10 mil a year? No, not yet.

No ones questioning his goal scoring potential. They’re bringing up that that’s the ONLY thing he brings to the table, and he’s inconsistent with it. Which is why he isn’t worth the exorbitant price tags people are throwing around.

Rumours of Laine for Svechnikov floating around. 

I'll take Svech.  All things considered.

 

Who knew?  Among Aho, Juolevi, Laine & Puljujarvi; Aho would be the hands down best player...

 

Something rotten in all of them except Aho?

I’d pay him 7

The guy is a beast. 

And yes, MT has more value than BB. I don’t think any poll outside a homer forum would suggest otherwise. 

Nothing against BB, nothing at all.

That's a trade I would do if I were the Jets.

But goal scorers like him get paid.

And that might be too much.  Laine is looking like a serious flake.

Not sure what's going on with Laine, don't see him staying in the peg long term.  Selanne 2.0?
