Opinions are like..
noses. We all have one.
Social media, as it always does, had a variety of reactions following Saturday's blockbuster trade that saw the Columbus Blue Jackets ship Pierre-Luc Dubois to the Winnipeg Jets for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic.
Here are some of them, from the the insightful to the thoughtless, and the angry to the joyous.
Good trade for both teams. But I like it more for CBJ. Laine a legit sniper and last year he took big strides in his overall game and Roslovic will get more opportunities in CBJ.— Jason Gregor (@JasonGregor) January 23, 2021
Dubois give WGP a great 1-2 centre lunch with Schiefele. #Jets #Bluejackets
Laine > Dubois— Mitch Gallo (@MitchyGallo) January 23, 2021
Connor, Wheeler, Ehlers already on the wings in Winnipeg.... They get a Center and Stasny slots to the third spot.
But Jarmo hit a HR. Got the better player and got a C with untapped potential.
Of course many Jets fans are upset with the tradeLaine was a star, exciting to watch AND a delightfully colorful and likeable character. But Jets brass are convinced Dubois, a center, can avg 70-80 pts a year over a 10-yr Jets career, making the trade a success. We shall see.— Bob Irving (@BobIrvingCJOB) January 24, 2021
Some perspective. PLD is an excellent addition to the Jets. Roslovic made it clear he was never playing for Winnipeg again. Laine didnt see a future with the Jets beyond this season. This is asset management. 20+ teams expressed interest in Dubois. https://t.co/peOay7yCnj— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 23, 2021
That seals the deal. I am no longer a Jets fan. This team is a pure and utter embarrassment to the city of Winnipeg. I officially will not be renewing my plan next season nor will I watch on tv ever again. Imo going to Manhattan where they know how to run a mega dynasty— Kevin Malone (@Kevin_Malone_11) January 23, 2021
You can thank this guy for continuously running young talent out of town. No idea why Chipman continues to let a school bus driver steer his Ferrari into the guardrails. pic.twitter.com/AJ8NYzSKEX— BJ (@BudweiserJets) January 23, 2021
F this franchise, so happy I cancelled my season seats before corona, burning my jerseys. Fire pomo and Chevy into the sun. Embarassing.— Mark Dornan (@MD26_) January 23, 2021
Can you guys pump the boos into the arena tonight? And show Chevy on camera at the same time?— Casey Hilderman (@caseyhilderman1) January 23, 2021
PLD should receive the "Jeff Carter" treatment from #CBJ fans on the way out of town. Different from the Panarin and Bob situation. They didn't quit on the team like PLD did.— Ed Bauman (@mistered27) January 23, 2021
Seems like an incredible trade for the Jackets especially in a situation where they had no choice but to get rid of PLD.— Jon Griffith (@JoncGriffith) January 23, 2021
