Finnish sniper Laine is available.

Recommended Posts

This seems like a trade opportunity that is tailor made for Carolina to pull off. The Jets need defense very badly and Carolina has more than enough depth to part with. Not to mention Laine would get to play with two other top-tier Finns in Aho and Terovainen.

As for the Ducks, if Laine was criticizing the Jets because he wasn't playing with their best players, imagine what he'll say playing with a considerably worse forward group in Anaheim lol. His biggest asset would be to the PP but if Murray still prides his forwards to play defense, then Laine lacks that. So, I'd be surprised Murray would be targeting him given the cost of acquiring him and that he will need a new contract after next season with a $7.5 mil qualifying offer.

 Of course, the fun part of this is what it would cost the Ducks to land him. Lindholm or Manson is going the other way. If they think Heinola can step into their lineup at LHD, then Manson is who'd they likely want. With Bryan Little being injured and declining in production, they might want some center help also. So, I'd go Manson, Steel and the 27th overall, which probably get rejected by the Jets and NHL21 GM Mode.

I would disagree....imho Ducks need to look landing him and moving out some Big Contracts...ie Kesler. Important our team need to light the spark in our team and in their Soul.

Exactly. If Laine was upset with how the Jets were doing....well...he aint going to like Anaheim lol unless he likes the beach....which maybe he does. But then go to Tampa lol (don't go to tampa please!!)

But, Carolina would make sense...also sounds like Carolina might be making some deal with the Leafs for Freddie.....that could be a HUGE deal. With so many solid UFAs in goaltending...the Canes could give up some of their D for Freddie. Leafs then sign Lehner or Crawford or Holtby or who knows! That would be a scary Leafs team.

Selanne can show him the ropes in So Cal.

He would be our Ducks Spokesperson to bring Finnish Hockey to OC.
