    Laine Trade=Domi? Pens Making Pitch for Gardiner, Marner Tensions Mount...
    July 21, 2019, 12:53 PM ET [10 Comments]


    Eklund
    Quick hits for your Sunday...

    #1. I am hearing the Pittsburgh Penguins are one of three teams who are believed to have serious interest in Jake Gardiner, to the point one source (with another team who is interested) texted me today..."Everyone is hearing the Pens are making a huge pitch which at this point will be very hard to pass on for Gardiner...

    #2. As I have written previously, the end of July has been set as a deadline internally for the Maple Leafs with Mitch Marner, and there is word today that the growing concern has made both sides more concerned (and hopefully more proactive) about the future...The Leafs are turning away trade proposals but a source tells me that will all change a week from now...

    #3. Max Domi looks like the key piece in any attempted trade to land Patrick Laine in Montreal...makes a ton of sense, but Domi, being a center who has really worked well for the Habs, is a tough price to pay....even though Laine may very well develop into the best goal-scorer since Alex Ovechkin. Would you include Domi to get int done?


    Holy crap...not Domi!!! I say NO!

    I don't even have a big problem with a player like that. Scoring goals is what it's all about. I just don't want to pay a player like that $9m+ and give up a bunch of good assets for it.
    I feel like they were still arguing he's better than Matthews as recently as last summer.

    You know my friends? I assume you're talking about HFBoards... that's a really shitty sampling of hockey fans. Surely you wouldn't want me using them or LoF to speak for Leaf fans.

    I'm sure there are plenty on morons out there who were arguing that. However, I bet even most of those morons wouldn't still believe anything of the sort.

    Pretty sure you just used your friends as an example of Jets fans in general hating Laine but okay.

    Merely expressing surprise at how quickly the fanbase seems to have soured on him if that's the case.

    Didn’t Zeke argue Laine was almost as good as Auston?

    He’s only right when he argues with you about politics.

    My friends aren't HFBoards level morons. They're the bottom of the barrel.

    You're right though, if Laine has a 50 goal season they'll love him again. Fans are fickle.

    One year ago if someone suggested we could trade Galchenyuk for Laine everyone would have been ecstatic.

    Obviously. And one year ago Domi was trash (relatively). Maybe it's an anomaly and Laine will be back to 40 goals level next year and maybe Domi will drop. But yeah right now I wouldn't do that swap either, that's how good Domi was for us.

    Exactly , not a chance I make a 1/1 swap .

    Domi carried his line and was consistent most of the season . I hope he has another gear left in him but if this is it .....thats great too.

    It is tempting but at 9-10 mil not worth pursuing for a motor worse than Drouin and non existent for too many games.

    This will be a tough negotiation for Chevy
