<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dopplsan</b></div><div>I don't disagree, but Seth Jones is also very overrated, and see how that trade worked out.

Laine isn't going to be cheap to acquire by trade, and CBJ aren't going to trade him for pennies on the dollar, particularly if a team values him high enough to put him on a top line of a Stanley Cup contender.

For Laine, a trade package with CHI would probably look something like a 2023 1st, PHI's 2022 2nd, and Reichel. Mind you, that's if he doesn't come with an extension.</div></div>

I disagree about Seth Jones. Yes, anyone could say that I've turned bias after the trade, but all you can do is take my word. I wanted Seth Jones ALOT more than Dougie Hamilton. 2-way Dmen and even stay and home Dmen are MUCH harder to find right now than puck movers. Puck movers also are getting paid WAY too much money. I 100% agree that trade value for Jones was bad. I would have preferred to keep the 2022 1st round pick...OR wait until he was a UFA in order to pay him that contract. BUT again...Seth Jones was #1 on my wish list entering into the summer. I actually think he's one of the more UNDER-rated Dmen in the league.

How does this relate to Laine. Laine is a one dimensional player. He has a HECK of a snipe. One of the best in the league, but he's lazy, he doesn't play any defense, and he wants a MEGA contract. I think once Laine gets his contract he'll be a very middle of the road type prima donna and that's the last thing the Hawks need.

As for the trade value. I stick to my guns. Two wrongs don't make a right. Don't trade for Laine.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dopplsan</b></div><div>Agreed with all. I think GMJK has kept tabs on Eichel both for simple due diligence reasons, and to see if his price will come down. The desire vs reality gap with Eichel has fluctuated a lot, so it’ll be interesting to see where it lands. There is definitely a point where Eichel may become so “cheap” that it could be worth it; but, Ultimately, this is the first true rebuild CBJ have ever gone through, so I’d hope they just stick this out.

Jarmo and JD are smart enough guys that if they keep this course, we may only need to wait 1-2 seasons to compete. With Eichel, and particularly considering the assets given up to get him, I really only see CBJ as exactly what they’ve been the past few years - a borderline playoff team that could surprise some people. For a team trying to build something, the only thing worse than bottoming out is mediocrity.</div></div>


Love that they brought JD back. A brilliant hockey mind..... you can see the track this team is in, and provided the prospects pan out as expected, I can see 2 years for sure.

The big thing in all this will be Werenski, Gavrikov, Bean and Boquist on the back end. All under 25. That's a quartet you can run with for 5-7 years with good cap management. Goaltending is in place. The blueline is in place.

The front end needs massaging, but even there, you can see where it's going.

I think they had one of the best offseasons in the league.... and they are rebuilding.
