How do the Jets re-integrate Laine into their room after his comments?

The OverDrive guys discuss the latest twist in the Patrik Laine saga, his comments and the challenge the team is going to face even if they are able to get him signed.




  • Laine is NOT the next Ovechkin. He's lazy, not a great player, has a bad attitude. The kid is coming into his 5th season in the league and hasn't hit that 50 goal mark yet, then he's not going to. Ovechkin had 50 goals 4 times in his first 5 years so the comparison isn't even close. He's looking more like Evander Kane, everyone has been saying for 11 years that he's gonna be a 50 goal guy and he hasn't hit it once .

  • Whatever, he's right & who cares if he hurt some hoo... He deserves to be on any 1st line. Trade him to Montreal & quit your bitching.👍🇨🇦🏆♥️ But I love the work your doing, keep it up.

  • I've never heard of this Laine nor witnessed tape of him through the grapevine. So my point being...He's not the next Ovechkin. Winnipeg better get rid of him or Laine better fix this mess. teams are families and this Laine guy sounds similar to a home wrecker trying to change the family of someone she's recently started dating.

  • Laine was sent home from national team tournament at age of 16 after he showed finger to coach and said he could kill him. It was when finns played 6 on 5 and they didn't put him on ice. That was first time I heard about him. Nothing new.

  • I doubt if there's a man in their locker room who doesn't want Laine to play on the team. Hockey is business, and every man in the room knows that. They are all professionals. He'll reintegrate just fine. Wheeler has already said it's a non-issue.

  • One of my favorite players of All Time and arguably the best Jet ever is Dale Hawerchuk. He played on a way worse Jets teams surrounded by even worse linemates and he didn't complain and he was still very successful. He loved playing for Winnipeg! Take notes Laine!

  • He doesn't want to be a Jet. Period. He's essentially Evander Kane with some skill. He's got a superiority complex, the Jets are bellow him. He feels he should be playing with Ovenchkin or Crosby. He's young and hes got skill, money doesnt mean much to him, wherever he goes he's going to be a millionaire. Jets are just throwing good money after bad. - Let him go, use the cap space to rebuild for 2021.

  • Everyone is overblowing thses storis about buff, connor and Laine, truth be told Jets dont need any of these 3, but if the Jets need one guy above all them its Connor, the most upside potential on the team, could just trade Laine. Buff will do what he wants if he has to retire then just retire, i doubt Buff will just retire though he would have said so long ago after last year was done.

    • @#Anton #FIN ovi had a 52 goal season and 46 goals before Backstrom was even drafted. Ovi only stands on the left side during the power play as does Stamkos, laine and any other guy with a good shot. You're knocking a guy for having a good shot. Ovi is a 6 foot 3 250 pounds hockey icon who will dangle you in his sleep, beat the fuck out of his opponents and fuck up opponents along the boards. Maybe you should watch a game or better yet search ovechkins top 10 goals or better yet enjoy his mvp Stanley cup winning performance along with his 411 even strength goals.

    • But aint Ovechkin just sitting on the left-side and waiting puck ...And not more than 2 seasons ago he was -53 ? Moreover you have Backstrom and now Kuznetsov as a centers all your career... ( HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THEM PLAY BTW ? ) Backstrom could make me 50 goal guy in his sleep

Laine is worth his money most nights. Selanne was the same. Wasn't on every night. But when on a streak...carry the team.

  • Laine is 21 yrs old its far too early to know if Matthews is the better player when the Leafs has yet to win shit ever and wont this yr either. Little is a good player but his best yrs are behind him, and Wheeler and Scheifele tell Maurice how to run his team and he obliges. I hope Laine gets his trade, where he will no doubt be on his new teams top line shittier team or not.

  • Funny thing is that Laine is completely right in this whole issue. Considering that he is only 21 and being regarded as an elite forward with his uncanny abilities as a scorer and having the best shooting in the game of hockey right now, it absolutely matters who is playing on the line with him. He needs a quality playmaker that can get him the puck and a power forward who can create open ice for Laine and the center, not counting the guys on defense. Oh wait. Think about it: A top-6 forward like Laine is playing with Little, who is bottom six at best. He needs to be on the same line as guys like Wheeler. People that are complaining about Laine have no idea how offense works in hockey, clearly.

  • You got it all wrong my friends. What Laine clearly meant to say was that he could always come back to Finland and play with the best players in the world. Finland is, as a matter of fact, the world champion of ice hockey in 2019, as the Finnish national team with zero NHL players defeated Canada 2-0 in the final (no, Patty wasn’t there).

  • They don't ... Winnipeg trades him for 2 first round picks, a young prospect, and a serviceable veteran who can get them 15 to 20 goals a season, preferably a hometown Winnipeg boy. They have to start stocking up on Manitobans who LOVE & WANT to PLAY in WINNIPEG! That's the way they are going to have to operate going forward ... like it or not! THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE THE FRANCHISE FROM HAVING TO RE-LOCATE ONCE AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!

  • Look at all the guys they had him on a line with throughout the year. Little, Connor, ehlers, Taney, Lowry, Perrault, roslovic, and I may have missed a couple. You know who’s missing from that list? The top two forwards on the team. How many of the top 4 scorers in the league are on second lines on their teams? Many of the players I listed are 3rd line guys. I can see his point here and I think you guys are way off. You remember the leagues top line when Laine, Scheiffle, and ehlers we’re out together? TSN had them at top the league. Wheeler didn’t like it and the coach was forced to juggle the lines. Both ehlers and Laines numbers both suffered as a result. How long does the offence have to sputter before the obvious change is made?

  • As a sad sack Canucks fan, I didn't appreciate his jabs in the past, so I'm obviously not on his side here. Laine seems to comment in slightly hotshot-arrogant ways. His whiny comment here is unsurprising. I don't think he is purposely trying to offend teammates, but he is sure doing so in the name of business leverage and personal gain. Best of luck here, Jets. I'm hoping young Patty get's a lot of time to try out Fortnite during his lost preseason.

  • These desk jockeys are clueless, he believes he is better than Matthew's, so he feels like he should be on top line. He never trashed his linemates. And everyone knows 2nd line and 1st line are vastly different. Stop stoking drama you cowards. Taking it out of context. And before these clowns fanboys try to white knight for these hacks, I'm not a jets fan. Listen the littles response. He knows what's up. Stop getting your opinion from hacks who arent involved
