Five Potential Trade Fits for Patrik Laine



Another day, another prominent forward appearing in trade rumors. It seems to be an annual tradition for mercurial Jets right winger Patrik Laine to pop up in the scuttlebutt. And maybe we who write about it are a bit guilty of stirring the pot. A source close to the situation has indicated the speculation comes more from the media side than the Jets or Laine’s camp…for now. But this off-season feels a bit different for the Jets and GM Kevin Cheveldayoff. They have some distinct team needs to address this time. Second-line center is a hole with veteran Bryan Little’s career in jeopardy, and the Jets desperately need help on the right side of their blueline after saying goodbye to Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers and Dustin Byfuglien over the past calendar year.
