Trade Rumor: Jesse Puljujarvi to Ottawa Senators

According to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston, the Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators have been consistently discussing a trade involving former 4th overall pick Jesse Puljujarvi.

The former 4th overall pick demanded a trade out of Edmonton this past off-season and will not return from Finland to the NHL until a trade happens.
I'm hearing he's comfortable all year in Finland. Obviously, the Oilers might have a decision to make for what's best for them, as they get closer to the Dec. 1 deadline where he has to be traded and signed if he's gonna play in the NHL this year. I get the feeling that's comfortable situation for the player. He's trying to get his confidence back, trying to get his game and he might be the best player right now in the Finnish Elite League, Johnston stated.
And according to Ottawa Senators insider Bruce Garrioch, Puljujarvi may very well be heading to Ottawa. Garrioch believes that the Oilers are looking for a 2nd round pick in return.

Elliotte Friedman added that Puljujarvi is looking to resume his NHL career outside of Canada, a place where it's a little quieter. He mentioned the Boston Bruins, the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Carolina Hurricanes.

Where do you think the former 4th overall pick will end up?
