Jesse Puljujarvi thinks he should be a top 6 on any team

wow


Do you buy low?
I’d take a gamble. I think he could be a power forward in this league. Two bad hips and playing for Edmonton? Trade Goldobin straight up.
The only HW the Canucks need

No, no, no, just no.

Puljujarvi is dumber than Virtanen and Booth combined.

Not sure I'd give up on him just yet. This is a guy who had 17 points in 12 games at the WJC.
He has won WJC-18 and WJC-20 gold and the Finnish championship.

Last season he looked pretty bad (hip issues?), but the season before that he had 20 points in 65 games in a limited role (13 minutes per game).
If the hips are fixed and he can bounce back to form....

Come on, this kid is just 21 years old! He scored 12 goals in 65 games in the NHL as a 20-year old.
And at 6'4" and 200+ pounds he adds size to the lineup.

If the price is right, I say go for it!

Isn't it generally thought that power forwards take longer to reach their prime?
If he is at a 15 goal 25 point pace at 20, he could easy become a 40 point power forward in his prime.
That's not cat shit imho. :mex:

How about Eriksson and Goldobin for Puljujärvi? :look:

Juolevi for him would be more realistic

Nah, Juolevi > Puljujarvi, especially for the Canucks. They need defensemen, not another forward with question marks. I would not mind trading Goldobin plus a 7th rounder for Puljujarvi though.

Agree totally but the coil wont make that move. Theyll want another stumbling highly touted prospect.

For van staying away and just developing what they have is better than getting involved with whiney rookies

Is Goldobin not a highly touted prospect? :mrgreen:

Edmonton is loaded with young D prospects. I think they’d prefer a forward for Puljujärvi

For a few reasons, doubt the Oilers would do anything with the Canucks right now.
Unless it's along thines of sabotage. Too tight in the Pacific.

Brian Hedger:

Also heard Provorov's camp asked for $10m cap hit, which I'm hoping/guessing was attached to an eight-year deal.

-

Zach Werenski seeking three-year contract at $5 million-plus annually, source says
Quinn Hughes comp's in a couple years, more so Werenski imesho if we see QH shine bright like a diamond.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
