(Proposal) Canucks- Edmonton


Recommended Posts

As long as we can just sell them as pending free agents (don't permit the Oilers to talk to them before trading them, or you'd be helping the enemy) I'd be down; that is quite the haul to be getting back (they can keep Puljujarvi though, I don't think he'll reach his potential at this rate, and he'd come at a pricey QO when we don't need more pricey, underachieving wingers).

Puljujarvi balances the cap. I don’t think he has much trade value right now. Considering he’s playing with some highly elite players he should have more points.

 

He might succeed here and that’d be great but his next contract will be low.

 

I see Kuzmenko being worth a 1st+ and Schenn a 2nd+ so an added third and Puljujarvi seems fair

That bold explains exactly why I think he wouldn't meet his potential (according to reports he started the season with McDavid... and had 1 point in 10 games - if you can't produce with the elites then the rest of your game better be competent to keep such a coveted spot, and lately he's been on L4/ PP2).  If he can't produce with 97/ 29 you'll have a tough time convincing anyone that he'll do better with Petey (I'd rather wait and see if the Oil even qualify him or if they want to give him a fresh start as a UFA, which if they do then I'd be open to signing him for league minimum to see what he has to offer).  Unless we can flip his rights for another pick, I don't see why we should take him on as a project when we already should find space for Hoglander/ Podkolzin next year.

Tons of guys hit higher potentials once traded. Plus he’s more in the power forward mild so better chance he develops later.

 

but as I said he’s not the main piece of this trade but adds allows cap compliance and some potential value

Got the right idea but the wrong team.   Isn't the "late great"  Steve Staois the high water mark for a trade with EDM?  We won't be trading with anyone in our own division unless the return is something amazing...hasn't happened yet anyways.
