Uh, yeah...the clock has started. Even if a deal is reached, I don't think he's staying there long-term.

IF things are in context and have correct language interpretation that is some awful excuse making and teammate tossing under the bus by the young Fin.

Would think if he was a poor victim of circumstance that big money offer sheet would be in his mailbox.

He's a good player but I wonder if he'd be shopped around given that attitude. Winnipeg has enough trouble holding onto players, you would think if there were an opportunity to do some horse trading of problem Finns (cough-cough-c-Aho-gh) some options would be possible...

Statistically, Laine's claim that he's playing with worse linemates compared to if he were on another team seems to have some merit. They don't play him with Scheifele and they've had trouble finding a number two centre. Can he achieve his best with Little and Roslovic feeding him?

Things like that do affect contract negotiations, so even if it's a little selfish, it's obvious Laine or any goal scorer would want to play alongside his team's best playmaker.

It does but If Laine wants a ten million deal or so deal then the players he has been with should have been enough for him to produce.
