Report: Oilers listening to offers concerning Jesse Puljujarvi

Rumors surrounding Edmonton Oilers' 2016 4th overall pick Jesse Puljujarvi haven't died yet. The winger hasn't lived up to the Edmonton's expectations so far in his career. And yet, according to TSN's Ryan Rishaug the Oilers are willing to listen to offers concerning Puljujarvi.

According to Rishaug's report, the Oilers have spoken with Puljujarvi's agent Markus Lehto about the possibility of moving the winger. Rishaug stated that the Oilers are willing to trade the 4th overall pick if the right return presents itself.

His career within the NHL has been disappointing for the 20-year old as he has scored 37 points throughout 138 NHL games. Rishaug believes that Puljujarvi's state is so bad that if a trade doesn't happen, the Oilers will send him down to the AHL where he has more success than difficulties.

Rishaug continued by saying that the Oilers still believe in the Fin and would rather keep him within their system than give him away at a discount.

However, the question remains that what would team be willing to give up for the 6'4, 212 pound winger?
