<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Windjammer</b></div><div>The bottom line is, the Jets own Laine's rights for 3 more years and Chevy is patient. If someone wants Laine now, they will have to pay what Chevy wants, or very close to it, or they will have to wait at least two years and hope Laine is still available.
It may upset some people and they will refuse to accept it, but the least likely outcome for now is Chevy panicking and trading Laine for far under market value or at any real discount. The most likely outcome is Laine plays this entire year with Winnipeg and trade talks are revisited next summer if necessary. You would definitely be in the minority as this wouldn't be a small loss for Winnipeg it would be a massive loss in value and team control. Dumba doesn't play the style of defense Winnipeg needs and has looked terrible after coming back from injury and Greenway ends up being Winnipeg's 6th best forward at the very most. When you are trading away a guaranteed first line winger on and team that is only 22, you don't trade him to round out your depth.</div></div>
Well I guess we disagree then. Dumba has "looked terrible" coming back from injury, well that won't be an issue going forward. You are also sleeping on Greenway since he is still a developing power forward and is only 22 or 23. As far as he is not the dman you need, I think most of the dman on Win are lefties except Pionk (I think) and I expect him to regain his form. As for "not a small loss", I disagree in the long run but whatever. If the reports of him sulking and the work ethic are true, I would see that as a huge red flag, I want Marner off my team for various reasons even though he is a great player because I want the team chemistry to be good.
"<strong>It may upset some people and they will refuse to accept it</strong>," I am not even sure what you mean by that since I am not saying do it...or really care one way or the other.
Well you are the Jets fan so I will leave the analysis to you, those are just my 2 cents. I hope you are right though because they are fun to watch.
