Pretty fair trade that gets rid of problems for both teams. I’d like either package.

Hull was ripping lazer beams when defenses were far slower than today. He also had little to do with possession or forechecking. He always thrived with an Adam Oates or Modano type driving the play

Still...I would take Laine over Boeser all day...all things being equal and all

I did not know that Berry Picker. He’s an assistant with the Moose. That is huge.

One for one? Value seems pretty damned close to me. Columbus with a slight add.
I was wondering about a trade centered around PLD and Laine... 2nd overall for 3rd.

Both want to be traded and PLD's dad is an assistant coach for the Moose.
Also Roslovic is a Columbus boy and Laine + Jarmo have a Finnish connection.

Interesting trade, both teams unloading their problem players.

Could turn out to be fantastic for each team... or horrible lol.

... so PLD gets traded out of the ‘Manitoba’ of the US cities because he hates it there.
... Liane gets traded out of Winnipeg because he hates it there...

So PLD goes to Winnipeg, and Liane goes to the Manitoba of the US....


What could go wrong??!?

I think Torts will bend over backwards to make it work.

Cuz if it doesn't, it'll be Torts going out the door next.

Having said that,,, no, no I don't. :D

They'll have a nice little honeymoon until the end of March. Then the games will really start to matter for the last 6 weeks and any coasting by Laine will see the young couple headed for the rocks.

Laine's contract is up too. LK must have an inside track with his younger countryman on this for any sense to be made of the trade in the long-term outlook.

It won’t last. Torts will lose it over one of Laine’s classic long dry spell

idk but both Laine and PLD should be motivated to play top tier again ... for the time being.

NHL says fuck Chayka, the former young analytics GM who quit the Coyotes just as the playoffs were about to begin to get a lateral position with the New Jersey Devils with extra powers to control other sports teams under that owners umbrella.
Elliotte Friedman: “John Chayka was offered a position by HBSE, owners of the New Jersey Devils, who also run the 76ers, Crystal Palace + are serious bidders for the NY Mets. Some kind of analytics/sport science leadership role across some/all those platforms.”
NHL comes down hard on former Coyotes GM, John Chayka.

He has been suspended by the commissioner for conduct detrimental to the league and game.


Chayka cannot be involved in NHL business through Dec. 31.

And as a parting gift from Chayka, the team lost numerous draft picks.
Well, punishment came down from the league on Wednesday, in the form of forfeited draft picks.

Specifically, the Coyotes lost their second-round choice in 2020 as well as their first-round selection in 2021, leaving the cupboard extremely bare when it comes to future draft picks
an NHL owner asked Meruelo for permission to speak with Chayka, which the former denied. Chayka reportedly then lied to Meruelo, telling the owner that he wasn’t seeking a position with another team, but seeking to “build relationships with owners in hockey” and “get market knowledge,” according to ESPN. Afterwards, Chayka told Meruelo he sought to be released from his contract, so he could accept a new position with the team, which he said allowed greater opportunities within the Devils’ owners vast sports portfolio.

Meruelo felt “betrayed,” according to ESPN, but offered to discuss the situation after the season. Chayka was skeptical of ownership, and felt that was “unreasonable,” according to the report, which said tensions elevated when Meruelo learned the position Chayka desired was more similar to the one he held Arizona then Chayka had led him to believe.

“This is where things fell apart. The Coyotes felt it was a pattern of misrepresentation,” a source told ESPN. “He tried to finesse it. There are some people that just think they’re the smartest people in the room, and every now and then it comes back to bite them.”
