And you know this from what?


If he doesn't produce 1 solid campaign to merit his 2-yr deal, then he won't get his 9-11M AAV on the next deal... he'll stay in the 5-8M AAV window to round out his career. He wouldn't be the first star to fade away after a few disappointing years [if he doesn't produce].

Thus, his current $ and his prospects for future $$ is Laine's #1 motivator to produce. He's not the all-around kinda hockey player (defense, offense, cup-winning, on-/off-ice captaincy sorta thing)...... yet.

This is absolute carbage. He's always been your mvp type of player who wants to win more than anything. Him not being an all around player has nothing to do with his motivation.
