New York Islanders RFA Target Patrik Laine Won’t Commit To Winnipeg

It’s been dead quiet in the NHL right now, particularly with the New York Islanders, but Patrik Laine continues to feed the NHL offseason with some juice. At least enough juice to get us through August.

In an interview with Sportsnet, he talked about his current contract situation with the Winnipeg Jets and honestly, he wasn’t too convincing that he is going to sign there.

That doesn’t sound like someone who wants to stay with Winnipeg. Do you hope it’s Winnipeg? Followed up by an elongated pause is enough to make the skin crawl for any Jets fan in Western Canada.
