I don't see how people view this as a win for Columbus. With Laine, they're getting a borderline 5-on-5 liability whose numbers are better cause of his PP play. Roslovic will be a good future middle-six winger/center but won't ever be known for posting many points rather known for elite defense. Dubois is an elite play driver and could easily post 80+ points in the future especially if he plays with Scheifele. People are overrating Laine's value here. The only way Winnipeg loses if they utilize Dubois in the wrong way. I would love to see a line of Dubois - Scheifele - Ehlers.
Overall it's a fair deal for both. Torts will have a negative impact (or maybe positive you never know) on Laine's 5-on-5 play but will make Roslovic one of the best 2nd liners in hockey.
