When you're a second overall and you get traded. Something is wrong with your performance. Patrick Laine réalises that he need to be better.

«I still want to be better. It doesn't matter if I scored 70 last year I just want to be a better player than I was the last year. It's gonna be pretty easy this year because I was pretty (crap) last year, but I just try to kind of build on last year and try to be better and have fun this season.»
When he got traded to the Blue Jackets, he realized that it was time to grow up:
'That was kind of when I had to hit the reset button for myself,» Laine said, per NHL.com. «It was a tough one, but there's nothing you can do about it anymore. You know as an athlete you'll go through ups and downs. It would be pretty boring if you were playing good all the time. You've got to have bad stretches and even sometimes you're going to have bad seasons. You just can't help it. You've got to fight it and try to get out of it.''
«Now I have 82 opportunities, and hopefully more, to play good. I'm excited about that.»
