Quick News on Puljujarvi

''Over a total of five tweets, Mitchell (Lowetide) effectively says he believes there's an offer on the table from a team like Carolina, Puljujarvi's agent knows it and he's trying to put pressure on to force the Oilers hand to accept the offer. If people in Edmonton hate Puljujarvi just enough not to want him back, perhaps the team will take a trade they don't like just to move the player out''

Wow. I understand that the Oilers screwed up his development, but this is just classless. Having your agent force a trade and what seems to get hate on purpose so he'd get traded is... unbelievable.

If he wants a top 6 role, the Oilers are a perfect fit. They need a bigger winger, and he'll probably play with RHN the entire season simply because there is nobody better. Basically the entire coaching staff is brand new except for Gulutzan.

What was the excuse for him playing 4th line minutes last year? He wasn’t given a chance to succeed last year so I understand why he wants a change. He’s definitely handling it wrong though. Why not play in the NHL and wait to be traded. There’s no way him making a scene increases his trade value which will make it harder for him to get traded.

I don’t think the Oilers really did anything that wrong with Puljujarvi.
A) they got tons of hate in the past by rushing prospects into the 2nd/ 1st line and not letting them develop properly.
B) Oilers wanted to ease him into the NHL. They wanted him to get used to the speed, skill and size of other NHL players. That’s why he was put on the 3rd/ 4th line in the beginning.
C) Throughout the year the Oilers wanted to send Puljujarvi down to the AHL but his agent and him wanted for him to play in the NHL.
D) Oilers believe in putting out the best lineup every night, and Jesse Puljujarvi WAS put on the 2nd line and he could not keep up. If you can’t keep up on the second line, you get dropped to the third and so forth. That’s just how it works. Other players outplayed him.
E) Almost all of the scouts and experts expected him to be NHL ready by his rookie year, Oilers didn’t rush him.

To summarize
Oilers thought he was NHL ready in his rookie year just like everybody else, he showed he wasn’t, they wanted to send him down to the AHL but his agent wanted him in the NHL. In order to give the team the best chance to win, you have to put out the best lineup every night. That means Jesse being on the 3rd/ 4th line. he was given the chance to be on the 2nd line with RHN, he blew it.

Mtl- alzner 1.5m retain- hudon - 3rd pick 2020


Believable2 Unbelievable4

21 Aug 2019 16:36:14
No from Montreal:

- too much is given up for what is essentially one less year of bad salary on the books.

- Alzner has been a good influence on the kids on the farm team with his good attitude.

- Kovalchuk is not a good team mate, especially when he's not happy with something, and I don't want his attitude around all those young players in Montreal.

Agree2 Disagree4

21 Aug 2019 16:52:45
I don't see the reason Habs would do this. I think Kovalchuck is jus done. he's no longer an elite player, with that being said. being average with small bursts of the old days is jus not enough. Obviously I don't know him, but seems like he has a me first attitude and with all the youngsters on that team, don't need that.

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 19:03:55
Kovy is still unreal LA was just trash and he didn’t fit in. The coach also didn’t like him. Elite hands, elite shot, surprisingly high compete level and above average skating. Zero defensive abilities but he’d be solid ( 60+ Points ) ’on a line with a Playmaker and a high compete player.

Debrusk-Krejic-Kovy would be good.

Edmonton Trades
Jesse Puljujarvi

Florida Trades
Mike Hoffman
2020 7th

Edmonton gets rid of a player that didn't with their and gets a player who can fit with their team. They also get a draft pick. Florida gets a good young player that could do really good with them and gets rid of good but slightly overrated player

Uhhhhh big nooooo from florida are serious and how does florida add ahahah

Agree8 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 06:28:29
Why would FLA do that and even add a pick?

Agree5 Disagree2

21 Aug 2019 12:21:33
Because maybe Florida sees potential value in Pul and Hoffman is a UFA at seasons end? Just a possibility.
But Edm doesn’t have the cap space to add Hoffman with only Pul going back anyways. This deal is a no from Florida most likely and it can’t work on Edms side.

Agree6 Disagree3

21 Aug 2019 13:52:23
No chance from Florida. Pulji isn't worth that much.

Agree4 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 17:18:28
Pulju is worth more than one year of Hoffman, there is no way he resigns with oilers so that's not a deal for oilers.

Agree0 Disagree3

21 Aug 2019 18:30:39
1 year of Hoffman playing wing for mcdavid might convince him to re-sign.

Hoffman > puljujarvi
1 year left as opposed to a player making ultimatums.

Jets: Ehlers,Niku

MTL: Caufield,Hudon, 2rd2020

Believable2 Unbelievable11

21 Aug 2019 06:16:53
Caufields size worries me, ehlers is proven and niku has really good potential. Hudon ain't nothing special and winnipeg doesn't really need the 2nd but they need cap space. Very tricky but i'd say no from winnipeg honestly

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Aug 2019 13:54:11
What incentive is there for Winnipeg to downgrade twice? No chance from Winnipeg.

Agree2 Disagree4

21 Aug 2019 13:56:23
Not a good deal for the Jets.

Agree3 Disagree4

21 Aug 2019 15:33:52
I actually think Caufield will be better than Ehlers. Not sure why, but I like Caufield and wanted Edm to take him if they were taking a winger instead of Broberg. I also really like Broberg so I’m happy.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Aug 2019 16:29:22
I see the concerns with Caufields size, however, with that much offensive talent, it's hard to let that go. If Habs could NOW start getting some more balance if Big and Small guys, that would help . Lots of skilled forwards on the team, just easy to push the little guys around.
I'd hate to give him up without seeing what he may be. Ehlers, is a damn good player, but if Habs are going to move some of these prospects, I'd prefer to see the D get upgraded
I think they will be ok up front, it's that D that worries me.

21 Aug 2019 17:31:39
I agree with Sosa, i would prefer a LD for sure.

Heard it here first folks.

Derrick Brassard to Oilers on a 1 year deal.
Georges Laraque reports via twitter.

Believable5 Unbelievable6

21 Aug 2019 12:24:27
I’ve really wanted Brassard as our third line center for a while now. Worries about him wanting too much but maybe there’s no other interest for him for the price he wants. He’s got a perfect third line center fit and opportunity in Edm.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 15:35:12
I thought the oilers had a prospect that was ready to jump to 3rd line center? Cooper Marody?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 17:08:18
@Thunder Turkey

I think the new Oilers team is more patient with prospects. I believe Holland is known for giving his prospects lots of time to develop. He can also play wing so we'll see him in the NHL this year for sure.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 17:34:17
Fair enough Barrie. I thought i remember reading a few months ago that he was the projected 3C and the oliers were set down the middle and looking for wingers. Better not to rush him and maybe get more playing time in the AHL compared to the numbers he would be getting on the 3rd line.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 19:07:41
I’ve said he’d be a good fit on the oilers before then someone said he wanted 4 million from the oilers but he’ll probably sign on the Islanders.

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2020

Ottawa Trades
LBrown (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2020 (Sharks Pick)

I have tweeked a previous post and took out Holl and DeMelo and changed the 1st Round Pick to San Jose from the Karlsson Trade.
Still think it's a possibility in today's NHL.

Thoughts ?

Ottawa is too cheap. I can't see them considering this at all.

21 Aug 2019 00:41:19
No Ottawa would rather keep their 3 first round picks.

Logan Brown is a big boy. At least a #2 big center

BT 6'3" 23 goals 22 assist at 19. Going to be a star.

1st round pick

Too much from ott.

Marner and his camp have contacted the zurich Lions of the Swiss elite league overseas as an option if he doesn’t have a contract before the start of the season.
Source: Rich Dhaliwal of Sportnet.

Do they know Dubas will give in like he did Mathews, Nylander and Tavares?

Marner has lead the team in scoring the last two seasons.
Mathews last season: 73P, $11.6M.
Tavares last season: 88P, $11M.
Marner last season: 94P.

Good move from Marner and his camp? Let me know.

For the record, I haven’t stated any opinion, just questions, sorry Leafs17 don’t get upset.

Believable5 Unbelievable3

20 Aug 2019 19:28:12
Dubas caved on Tavares? What? He turned down more from San Jose to come home. Easiest day Dubas has had at work.

You keep talking (trolling) about the Leafs "cap problems" but at the end of the day the Oilers and Leafs are both going to spend close to the cap ceiling.

One of those teams is a lock for the playoffs and a legitimate cup contender. The other is most certainly not.

But the Leafs have cap problems? LOL what a goof.

Dubas out here dunking on GM's and you're just seething with jealousy HAHAHA.

Agree5 Disagree7

20 Aug 2019 20:10:47
If a team is over the cap by 3 million and have a guy to sign that wants 11+ mil, they don't have cap problems? Interesting.

Agree6 Disagree4

20 Aug 2019 20:10:52
Doesn't even justify a response.

Agree3 Disagree4

20 Aug 2019 21:50:36
On sorry. Take out Tavares if you need. But is that the only thing you respond on then bash my team? Chia was an efin goof. I’ve said it a millions times the last 6-8 months. Lol. Get over it. And lmao. You don’t even have enough to sign the guy and have to wait until the LTIR guys help you out. But you don’t have cap problems? A year or so ago when all you were calling Drai an overpayment I kept saying just wait until Mathews and Marner. Just wait. Now you’re in this circus and you don’t think you have cap problems? Lmfao. Yes my team has been trash. I agree. Go off topic and bash some more. Lol.

Was this a good move for Marners camp?

Agree5 Disagree1

20 Aug 2019 21:51:46
Lmao. Dubas “dunking on GMs”?
Lmfao. Most homer comment I’ve heard in a bit.

20 Aug 2019 21:54:45
And why is that Donscherry?
Do you believe Dubas is doing an amazing job with signing your players?
Was this a smart move on Marners side?
Just curious a legit response, tru not to bash, my team sucks I already know.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Aug 2019 23:06:52
Tavares left money on the Table. Nylander gets payed less then Kevin Hayes. Mathews gets payed less then Paniran Marner deserves more then McDavid hands down with the cap increase and him being the best player in leafs history ( all though it’s a pretty Pathetic Franchise historically post original 6 )

Agree1 Disagree5

20 Aug 2019 23:47:00
When the Season Starts and Hyman and Dermott are back from injury the Cap Hit for Marner can only be 10.2m for a 22 man Roster or 9.5m for a 23 man Roster. If you do the math and who you picture on the Leafs you will see I am right.
I see a bridge deal and in all honesty if Marner wants to play with the most competitive Team he will either understand and except that or not, if he wants more I really believe Dubas will Trade him.
My guess is if this is Labour Day and nothing signed I say they will Trade him at that point.

Agree1 Disagree5

21 Aug 2019 00:10:24
Hahahahahaha haha.
Still no one can answer the question in the post. It was a very simple topic that will go so far off hand now. I’m shocked.

Hayes was even caught saying himself that the only way he signs with Philly is if they overpay him. Lol. And that happened after Nylander.

So, I’ll ask for a third time, Was this a smart move from the Marner camp? Will it put a little more pressure on Dubas now?
Pinball thinks he’ll be traded. I think they should have traded Nylander two weeks before the season for anything. Just to get the headache out and not have that kind of culture there. Now Marner is going to try and pressure Dubas to get what he wants. And it’s changing things for other RFAs right now and for the future. Interesting times.

Agree4 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 00:43:47
Till don't worry about fstinks, leafs will just lose in the first round again lol.

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Aug 2019 01:34:55
Yupp, . While you have recanted the Tavares signing the Leafs had to pay up on Matthews. Every team would kill to have him on there team and in there lineup. He is considered one of the best centers in the game. And just like when people were saying Draisatl was overpaid (I disagreed) Matthews will earn that money. Nylander for all the crap spoken had stats that mirrored Pastrnaks stats at the time Pastrnaks signed. The only reason people bailed on him was because he struggled last year because of the late start. If he comes back this year and gets 70-80 points everyone will flip flop just like they have now with Draisatl. I choose not to listen to fans opinions on players. I listen to those involved in the NHL and all of them would take those 3 on there contracts.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 12:29:28
Ok, The Topic here was if Marners threat of talking to a Swiss team is a good tactic or not people. Not a single response on that. Lol.

Mathews $11.5M is a good number, it’s the term that Dubas gave in on, everyone locking their stars up for longest term possible like 8 years, (Chia with Mcdavid and Drai 😉😉) . But he gave him 5 years to be a UFA sooner and now Marner wants huge numbers on 3 and 5 year deals and that’s a big cause of this RFA circus now. Everyone is waiting on Dubas and Marner because of how Nylander hold out went and the shorter term for the superstar. That’s been said by so many people not just me. Tkuchucks agent, Friedman, Patrick Marluea in person, and many other analysts have said everyone is watching the Leafs and Marner.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 14:55:38
To be honest, it could all just be a front. Everyone is waiting on the leafs to make a move. Maybe they have something worked out already and are just going to make everyone else sweat it out. Have Marner sign the day before the season starts so you don't take that additional cap hit to the season like Nylander put on them and then let the other teams sort their contracts out and incur that additional cap hit to the season for sitting games out. Marner goes and practices overseas with the same team that Matthews practiced with and join the camp for the regular season.
I don't know but it is just a thought.
Hope this sticks to your original post Yupp. Not really sure the direction others were taking on this one.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 15:36:38
They don’t have anything worked out yet. Lol.

Lol. They don’t like their situation so they always turn to off topic bashing of my cr@p team. Like they think it hurts my feelings or something. Classic deflection. That’s all. That’s the entertainment of some of the biased delusion on here 😉😉🍻.

If you follow Darren Ferris' historical approach to negotiations this is neither surprising, nor has it been very successful. This is pasted from an article from JUNE (written by a Mike Stephens) :

There’s a distinct method to Ferris’ madness:

Declare your client to be in “no rush” to sign an extension, deferring instead to their “respect of the process”.

2. Partake in a high-stakes game of chicken by carrying negotiations throughout the entire offseason and into October, therein handcuffing your client’s team during the July 1st free agency period.

3. As MLHS’s Kevin Papetti so wonderfully summarized in his tweet above, threaten the “very real” possibility of your client beginning the regular season overseas (most likely in Switzerland, a Ferris locale of choice) in the hopes of forcing said team’s hand.

4. Have the team inevitably call your bluff after one final boardroom stand, and proceed to sign your client to what is ultimately an underwhelming dollar figure when accounting for the path which led you here.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 16:06:58
Because it's a tactic that's been used tons of times. If he goes, he goes. oh well. Not enough to worry about. I think he is a great player bit of he's asking to much then bye bye. Teams have to stay within a cap and if he doesn't want the team to do that than its his loss.

Typical overvaluing of Montreal assets. Easy no from the Oilers.

Easy there Jets boys, you guys overvalued Trouba and now Liane.
Edm wouldn’t trade those three pieces for Caufield tho. And I’m a big fan of Caufield.

Agree8 Disagree1

20 Aug 2019 19:11:39
Why would Montreal trade a player they just drafted 2 months ago?

No from Oilers too. Oilers are trying to get good NOW. Benson and Bear are fringe NHLers while Caufield is years away.

Yup, I appreciate your answer makes sense, but value wise is it clost?

Agree2 Disagree2

21 Aug 2019 00:13:07
That question can’t be answered right now, they are prospects with nice projections. I think Caufield could be the best of the four myself, I’m a fan of his, but I don’t think any GM would give up those three pieces for just one. Also, how many top end 1st round draft picks have been traded after being drafted after the draft but before the season even starts? I’m legit interested if there’s even been one. Teams draft those players top 15 ish for a reason, they really like them and see a fit.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 06:18:44
So oilers best forward prospect, a rw with elite potential and a solid rhd prospect for a player whos a big gamble due to his size. No from edmonton

To wild: Jost and timmins
To Colorado ; Parise

Colorado gets a wigner who can play on 2nd line with Kadri and make Colorado a Cup contender.

In what world would Colorado accept this? Although parise did have a bit of a bounce back, no one in there right mind will take on that contract as is, not to mention the injury histroy. Let alone for a potential top 6 forward and top 4 d that are both 21 from a division rival.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Aug 2019 00:41:04
I read an article that parise was almost traded at 50% retained a week or two ago. No way minny trades him. For an accepting team or Minnesota. Just to much of a gamble.
