Detroit: Zadina, Cholowski
Winnipeg: Laine

That’s about what I expect Laine would bring right now. And I really don’t think I’m far off either. You Winnipeg guys can drink the tears in your beers all you want. He sucked last year, but pretending like he didnt. In my owns excel spreadsheet he comes in between 75-100. An unsigned 50 point getter asking asking over ten million just doesn’t bring home the bacon.

I try to practice patience with the Jets fans that are countering trade proposals here, because I get that the team itself isn't looking to trade Laine to anyone unless the offer is too good to refuse.

But time will tell if/ when Laine is traded and the players/ picks that come back will definitely come as a surprise with how underwhelming the return will be. that's just what happens when you watch a player regress or disappear for half the season. He has upside, but hasn't proven his worth compared to what he expects to be paid.

Add to that his comments in the media, the fortnite addiction, the fact that Laine didn't know how to do his own laundry when he was 18. there's character issues with this kid that any other team would have to address when bringing him into the organization.

As a Wings fan, I would rather keep Zadina and Cholowski. This deal may be close but we are in a better position with both of those young players than the one player in Laine right now.

So we will pass because in our rebuilding state, not comfortable making this deal at this time.

Ya I don’t see Liane a good fit in Detroit. I see him a good fit in Carolina first. Maybe Buffalo. Maybe Montreal but as soon as he takes a few games off and is terrible defensively he’d be ripped to shreds by fans and media.

Those would be decent add ons to a major piece, but on their own get you laughed at. Two prospects that have shown absolutely nothing at the NHL level. Lol

Outside of Larkin, Detroit had nothing even remotely interesting to start a conversation.

I’d value Zadina and Cholowski over Laine tbh.

Quality over quantity eh? Maybe if Laine put up better numbers than Keller he would deserve more.

“Brodie isn’t worth that much? You got to b kidding me. That’s got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read. I would really like to know what you have thinking here. This one I got to see buddy. You’re too much. Keep trash. That’s all you doing. Nothing but trash and s*t out of your mouth. Frolik alone almost brought back substantially more than this. Twice. So I got to see how you value this. I got to see how you can say something like that sndnpt get called out. Well I’m calling you out now big mouth. Explain to me how Brodir don’t get anything? This I got to see.

I think it’s a great prop. White and Suzuki are very similar players. Habs have lots of depth at center right now. They can afford to swap out for someone else to fill in the bottom six guys. Not sure Suzuki is the one, but he’s got the ball started rolling. It might just end up the way it was supposed to be.

Ottawa also has Poehling. I honestly don’t know if he actually plays center, or is just listed there for whatever reason. That contract of White’s is ridiculously team friendly. How they keep convincing players to accept less than market value is beyond me (*ahem*) Gardiner.

@vertius

Wendell Clark had more heart and soul than anyone who ever played the game. Compare his stats to Daigle, who could have been the best player ever. He really was that talented. You can look his videos up on YouTube. You’ll see what I mean. Do a check of the ppg, etc. Not just the headline numbers, which are actually not that bad,

I love heart and soul. But skill and talent is what gets the results. Jagr was crucified for not being “heart and soul”, but he is generally agreed be top 5 players of all time.
