Will the Winnipeg Jets trade Patrick Laine?
Twitter: Brian Lawton has stated that it is a possibility that the Winnipeg Jets are shopping Patrick Laine.
Like the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Winnipeg Jets are in a cap crunch and they might not be able to sign Laine if they want to re-sign other players on the team.
Lawton states, “hearing some really big names floating around out there today. A number of clubs have called the Winnipeg Jets about the moonshot of is Patrick Laine a guy they would consider moving? Believed the phone was not hung up………… ”
Will Mark Stone be traded or re-sign with the Ottawa Senators?
Though teams have grumbled about the high asking price from Dorion, league sources told the Ottawa Sun there’s likely as many as eight contenders are making a serious pitch for a guy who can help a contender at both ends of the ice.
The Winnipeg Jets, Vegas Golden Knights and Boston Bruins are among the teams that are believed to have made a strong push for Stone. The Calgary Flames and Nashville Predators are also believed to have held talks, but may not want to give up what the Senators are demanding in return.
Though the Jets have been the most aggressive team in pursuit of Stone, it’s believed the Knights have made a late push. There has been talk they don’t want to give up everything Ottawa wants in return but he’s a big piece and could be a difference-maker down the stretch for any contender.
