Their D is very weak unless Pionk or Heinola step it up as big time minute eaters.I don't see them not making the playoffs now
Are the likely playoff teams
So what's the Habs equivalent to this deal? Is there even one for that matter? Suzuki and Caufield? I don't even think that's equal, Laine is rated better than both, for now. Roslovic I don't know much about.
Jarmo already said they’ve started talking long term contract extensionIf Laine doesn't sign with Columbus he can be flipped near the trade deadline for a 1st round pick/high end prospect(s) at a minimum. Once we get closer to the deadline a whole lot contenders will have banked enough cap room to be able to add Laine in time for a late season/playoff scoring boost.
