I'm surprised Columbus didn't have to throw something else in here. If Laine can get back to his rookie scoring days this could look like a terrific trade for them. I guess the flip-side is can he get those numbers playing under Torts and with Domi as his 1C.

I mean it is pretty hilarious that these players got moved for each other after they were drafted one after the other.

This deals leans Columbus imo. Dubois is good but Laine is such a crazy scoring threat.

I'm not so sure Laine and Torts will be long for each other.

This is a very even trade, insofar as both players are likely to be equally unhappy.

Value wise yes, but I also think it'll work out better for Winnipeg. As everyone says, Laine and Torts isn't exactly a match made in heaven. While for Winnipeg this trade drops Dubois into a 2C position behind Scheifele and puts them in the upper echelon of teams with the best centre depth.

Also, I've got a feeling that Dubois is going to really appreciate being in a lockerroom led by Blake Wheeler.

Wonder if Jets fans still think Laine is better than Matthews?

Yeah. I can?t see that being a great relationship. Laine?s going to want out of Columbus in a year or two if Torts is still around.

That's the first thing I thought.    :o

Smart deal for Winnipeg in the sense that Laine and Roslovic weren't really in the lineup for them to begin with, so when Dubois does actually pass the quarantine, it's like adding without subtracting.

Of course not.  That would be silly.

They now think that Dubois is better than Matthews.

Winnipeg got rooked. I've never cared for Laine something about him with his cockiness saying he should have been drafted first but I think a one for one deal was fair. He's had some issues but if he can get back some of his scoring which I think he can Columbus wins this deal. I always said he's a one trick pony, great shot and PP specialist but he's a game changer when on his game. Throwing Roslovic in doesn't make sense. Dubois hasn't lived up to his billing in my opinion and don't think he's that bonafide franchise centre. Plus he wanted out so overpayment in my opinion.

I'll take Columbus in that trade.
