Didn't he just sign an extension like 2 weeks ago? WTF?


He also purchased a home/condo property in the city just this summer as well. Hoping he settles in as he's played well to start the season and winning soothes the tensions that were likely created during drawn out negotiations over the summer/fall with Jarmo.

Dude will be a stud. Texier looking like he'll be badass going into the future too. Looking forward to see what Domi and Koivu bring. Del Soto and Grigorenko have looked to be very skilled creators thus far.

Dubois is a bitch. Was being so lazy last night. This team needs to figure out why these players want to keep leaving though.

Well, I don’t think PLD is a Bitch; but it just burns me all these guys who consider themselves “too good” to be in CBus!

Bread, Bobs, and now Dubois were/are stars here and the Jackets spent a lot to sign and develop these guys and then they leave for the “limelight”.

I expect Pierre is gonna get traded soon enough; I just hope the Jackets get a fair return!

He was clearly dogging it out there last night, hence why he got benched. So much for him not being a distraction.

Latest rumor has Dubois, Nathan Gerbe and a 2022 Second Round pick going to Winnipeg Jets for Patrick Laine and Jack Roslovic (a Columbus native).

We shall see!

Seems like a pretty good deal given the circumstances, no?

Love this trade! At the very least, both Laine and Rostovic will add some much needed scoring.

However, Laine is quite the freelancer and will probably cause Tortorella to either commit murder or suicide!

It's good to move off of PLD but I am just as concerned that Laine won't want to stay in Columbus. At least it'll make the rest of the year interesting and then maybe money will talk for one of these guys finally.

Laine is arguably the best player in the deal by quite a ways, but he’s currently hurt and a free agent.

Roslovic has already agreed to a 2 year contract. Maybe Patrick Laine wants stay here and sign long term.

That would be a great thing in light of all the Divas that wanted to move on to greener pastures.

Laine has a lot of Finnish connections on the team and in Jarmo. He's originally who he wanted in 2016 to begin with. It is a bit different of situation than Panarin, IMO.
