Patrik Laine will move to Columbus Blue Jackets and several Jets supporters will not melt the barter.
Hockey Many NHL Winnipeg Jets supporters have expressed disappointment with Patrik Laine’s departure for the Columbus Blue Jacket, says Winnipeg Sun.. Laine moved to Columbus as part of a player exchange where Pierre-Luc Dubois moved to Jets.
In particular, the accusing finger of the supporters points to the sports director of the Winnipeg Jets To Kevin Cheveldayoff.
“Jarmo Kekäläinen [Columbuksen urheilujohtaja] took Kevin to school and made him look like a junior league. Kekäläinen is praised as a hero in both Columbus and Finland. I strongly doubt that anything like this would slip off anyone’s lips in Winnipeg. ” Larry Glenesk wrote an email to Sun.
Winnipegian Bob Dyce, who works as an assistant coach for the CFL League Ottawa Redblacks, expressed the matter by analogy.
“Two players wanted a move. One of them played one of their best matches. The other deliberately went to Honki to be traded. I know which one I would like on my team, ”Dyce wrote on Twitter.
Several fans were delighted, things were going well and thanks to Cheveldayoff who scored and doubled the distance with visitors’. Dubois is a central striker.
“The good thing about this is that I don’t have to pay this season to get to the matches. Let’s trade Chevy [Cheveldayoff]! ” John Schabert wrote to Sun.
Bart Carr expressed the matter bluntly: what a silly move.
“The Jets needed a quality defender named Seth Jones. It would have been a smooth transfer, after all. This move is a joke. ”
The arrival of Dubois was also welcomed.
“I hate to see Laine leave, but I like Dubois,” Peter Olson wrote to Sun.
Laine scored 36 goals during his debut season in Winnipeg. In the following seasons, the goal numbers were 44, 30 and 28.
“I was hoping to see Laine as a longtime player for the Jets. He was good. And his best games are yet to come, ” Amanda Halayko write on Twitter.
