    I would trade anyone.......for the right price and I do mean anyone.

    But to your point, yes this year he's been much better player & attitude & work ethic then his first three years. A bit of maturing & self reflection can do wonders for young players. No one has doubted he had big potential, let's hope he keeps it up for the benefit of the team.

    Laine leads NHL in points, assists and also leads NHL in +/- (what the..?).

    8 hits on people in today's game. Way more than anyone else.

    I love this motivated Laine. More minutes with Scheifele and Wheeler found his motivation.

    Somebody is ready for prime time. He’s be a huge addition to that first line, his play in all areas of the ice has been great to watch. He was a beast tonight.

    He keeps this type of play up or even close to it the coach can't remove him from the line......which is what many fans said Laine had to do.....aka make it impossible to remove him. Of course if the line ever gets cold, the blender should rightfully come out, but that should be for a short time period only before Laine would get another chance. Laine was given a chance again this year and he's running with it, good for him & the Jets. Ironically he appears to be turning into the power forward & excelling at it.....haha. Full marks to Laine on his performance & improved work ethic/maturity this year.

    Love Laine with Scheifele and Wheeler. This will be one of the most dominant lines in the league if kept together. And I can see both Scheifele and Laine each pushing 100 points if they are kept together.

    Maurice could also consider separating Wheeler sometimes if it comes down to that.

    Copp has been given fave games so far, hasn't been super impressive to-date. Yup I would like to see Jack get a similar chance at 2c. KC & Ehlers with Jack would be a sick fast line.......but not the best defensively.

    What is frightening is that statistically he is going to hit his prime 2 years from now and stay there some 5-6 seasons before slow decline.

    At least that is what happens on average, and for a long guy that might be the case.

    Ha, ha, It’s ironic how mad you sound. You’ve been wrong about him. It’s ok.

    Well, I for one believe that there were real issues with his back last year - and in any case he is ridiculously young and just recently growing into his big size, and the physical training programme has clearly been planned for the long term. I have never understood the weird and irrational criticism of him. Obviously there is always room for reasonable criticism and improvement but with Laine people for some reason go over the top - well, to be fair, to both directions.

    We will see lots of this as long as Scheifele and Laine are on the same line :DD

    The Wild fall back with 4 players and be like "we got this, it's just a 2 on 4", and then BOOM! Scheifelaine strikes out of nowhere.

    For those type of crazy goals there is no other option than keep these two together, this team simply has no other player than Scheif who can deliver such a pass

    Ha, looks like coach Wheeler has just locked Laine onto the top line :sarcasm: I certainly don't mind seeing Wheeler and Scheifs feeding Laine for the next 77 games, especially considering whenever Laine joins the top line, Wheeler starts scoring goals himself instead of just setting up his linemates. I remember this happened last season too.
