Assessing the risk of Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor signing offer sheets



  • Winnipeg possesses $20.4 million in cap space to sign the two mentioned above plus Pionk and Copp.
  • Those two filed for salary arbitration.
  • If you trust Evolving Wild’s contract projections, there’s plenty of room:
  • Laine at seven years and $7.1 million AAV
    Connor at six years and $6.8 million AAV
    Copp at two years at $2.2 million AAV
    Pionk at two years at $2.9 million AAV
    All this totals $19 million of Winnipeg’s $20.4 million remaining cap space.
  • That means some wiggle room exists.
  • Mike Liut is also the agent of Patrik Laine.
  • Would a $9 million AAV offer sheet cause Winnipeg to walk?
  • It could with Laine but not with Connor
  • If Patrik Laine signs an offer sheet somewhere then things get interesting quick.
  • Bob Mckenzie has speculated this week that they won’t be any Offer Sheet made until september.
  • So the waiting game continues.
