Why not just trade Laughton+ for Buff? They are looking for center depth up there in Winnipeg. I like Laughton though, I think he would be a nice piece to hold on to for some time.

I am just really throwing names out there for options. Not saying if I agree or disagree with a trade for those players, just thinking of some who could become available.

Throw in Mezsaros with Cousins and you have a deal.
How about a guy like Seabrook? or Phaneuf?

That is a laughably one-sided proposal.

+ means Laughton is the main piece, which means Winnipeg wouldn't even consider it.

Because three way trades are cool.

Why not? Laughton has been compared to Crosby as far as his skill and he's 19yrs old. Youth and potential sells in the NHL.

I don't think anyone has compared Laughton to Crosby except you just now.

This is after the year too. I was proposing making a trade at the draft. Laughton could have a great year. Also, what would you offer? Schenn or Couts?

Our first rounder would most likely be available at the draft for some sort of upgrade.


Laughton+1st rounder+(something) for Big Buff isn't as bad as you are making it out if Laughton has a good year in the NHL.

Yeah, I've gotta say that post is the first time I've seen that comparison made anywhere by anyone.

Laughton will be lucky to top out as a second line center at the NHL level. The only similarity to Crosby is that they're both Canadian.

It was back when he played with the Toronto Marlboros
I might be a little high on this kid because he's from my hometown but I hope he does better than 2nd line center in the future.

If Laughton is going to be as good as Crosby then we can trade Giroux for a franchise defenseman

Geez, I thought the Gill thread was already full of crazy banter. Now we have Laughton compared to Crosby?

All-around worst thread of the early season?

Come to think of it, I have yet to see Laughton and Crosby in the same room together. Hmmm .....

If Laughton was considered to be a Crosby type even in his GTHL days he would have been granted exceptional status & drafted at age 14 instead of being drafted at age 15.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=76690

Just for comparison sake here's other forwards who were considering phenoms heading into the OHL:
-Connor McDavid
http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=183442
-John Tavares
http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=9223

I'm not one to put everything into stats but there's a big difference in their numbers compared to Laughton.

I wouldn't even trade Laughton for Crosby. Some guy I knew just compared Laughton to Gretzky. I'll take Gretzky any day. Lemiuex too. Is Gordie Howe available?

Can a mod go through the last page and clean all this out--it is technically off topic. We as a board will live to regret this page if the Penguins fans every find it...

I nominate you to go over to the Penguins board and say that we've been discussing how comparable Laughton is to Crosby and ask them to come over and contribute to the thread.

And I thought jagrfan68's fanboyism (or whatever his name was), and wolfy's Tollefson love was blinding. Flyersfanz wants to get into their league, and he is doing work lol.


But as crazy as that post was, let's not feed him to the Pens fans. At least not yet.

I'd actually like to see him get torn apart by Pens fans. Would be fun. After all, I'm not the one who compared Laughton to Crosby.
