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 foe 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 bonfire franchise centre. Plus he wanted out so overpayment in my opinion.
I agree here. Throwing in Roslovic gives the edge to CBJ. It's funny how people say if Laine can get back to scoring....Yes he hasn't matched his rookie output but this guy still scored 28 in 68 games last year.  I actually think he'll do well under Torts and he'll be on the 1st line.
Probably a good trade for both teams in the end though.

Seems like I?m one of the few who actually likes this for Winnipeg.

While I think Winnipeg totally botched up Laine and gave up way too soon on him, nor did they get full value for him, I think they are better because of it.

Dubois to me seems like a dynamic talent who was just in a wrong situation (yes, through fault of his own too), and should thrive on the Jets. While I think Laine is going to a situation/team as well as under a coach in which he won?t realize his full offensive potential. He has Rocket Richard potential ? the Blue Jackets nor Torts seem like the place for him to go for it.

I suppose the most ironic thing of it all is that Dubois is exactly the type of centre Laine needs, and vice versa.

I can't get over Laine being under Tortorella now. LOL. He thought Maurice was bad.......

I think Columbus wins this trade hands down.  I like Dubois and he could develop into more but I?m just not convinced he is going to reach PPG heights in his career.

It's hard to see this as a bad trade for Winnipeg in the sense that while I think Laine is a good player I'm pretty skeptical there's a fair big money long term deal you could sign him to right now that would look right. Everyone here is "Well, if he gets back to scoring what he did..." but do you sign him on that basis? Because Laine at, like, 7 years/10.5 per is a pretty dicey proposition even if you think the last few years were just a hiccup.

That said while I think Dubois can be an excellent #2 C it's really hard to think Winnipeg couldn't have done better here. Only getting a third thrown in seems pretty weak.

They both waited too long, asset value-wise given they knew the players were angling to leave.

I think Philly revisits a Laine trade in the off-season but this time with Columbus, and Montreal starts pitching Dubois for defensemen

I was wondering if either team would flip the players but I don't think they would unless forced.  Winnipeg has been reported to be looking for a solid #2 center for a while and just got a perfect 22 year old one.  Laine has the chance to be a star player with an organization containing a couple of respected countrymen.

I mean anything could happen but I think it would be highly unlikely

Me neither. I suspect Dubois will do better in Winnipeg than Laine does in Columbus. It would not shock me to see Laine on the move again in the next couple seasons, but suspect Dubois is a Jet for the forceable future.

there both crybabies, f__kem

I agree. That?s a lot of athletes now have the owners by their balls. Sign contracts then not happy or not on a championship team they want out. NBA players are the worst.

I'm sure it's not what he meant but Dubois and Scheifele at 11 million definitely puts Winnipeg up there.

Don't that the narrative quite applies here...players with no arb rights have no option not to sign contracts. Its either sign with the team or don't play.

Roslovic took the latter, but Laine and Dubois had to sign for the sake of their careers and signed short term deals.  Doesn't mean they were happy, and they said as much
