They claim Laine is up for grabs, I don’t think this is true. A smoke-screen to hide something else. However, I’ll humour the idea by asking that it would take to get the Finnish Sniper-turned-2-way-forward.
He’s a 40 goal scorer. He’s done it before and he’ll do it again. But he going to cost a ton of money to keep ($9-10+mil).
How about something like this:
NJ Devils get: - Laine
- 10th overall
Jets Get: - Subban, 50% ($4.5m) retained by NJ
- 7th overall
- 18th overall pick
- 20th overall pick.
