What a bananas trade. I feel like CBJ made this trade from an asset standpoint and not necessarily because they think Laine will fit. Roslovic is a very underrated part of this deal, as I think he is a perfect fit for CBJ/Torts in the long term. Laine I think fits well for about 3 months and then looks to leave again, which CBJ can cash in again on.
PLD will do well in WPG, I could see his frustrations carrying over there however, WPG must have some knowledge that he will be happy back in Canada and wasn't necessarily needing a bigger stage.
4 years from now I think we look back and its obvious CBJ won this in a landslide, with Roslovic a staple in the CBJ lineup and tons of assets acquired from flipping Laine.
