Morning Line- On The Cap Situation For The Winnipeg Jets

On Nov 29 #NHLJets Patrik Laine scored his 20th & 21st goal of the season, which had him in first place in the league for goals scored.

Since then Laine has scored 4 goals, and currently sits 34th in the league in goals scored.

Why is that important?

Anything outside the top 10 means Laine misses out on a $1.8M 'B' bonus.

It also mean that the $1.8M the #NHLJets had earmarked as a possible bonus in Nov, can maybe be used at the trade deadline instead.

$1.8M at the deadline is equal to an $8.37M cap hit at full value.
