NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers Actively Discussing Trade

The Edmonton Oilers had themselves a busy offseason and seem to accomplish a lot. From keeping Evander Kane in the mix to finding a number one netminder in all-star Jack Campbell, general manager Ken Holland should be applauded for his efforts. The work is far from done.

After last season Holland admitted he needed to figure out what to do with Puljujarvi. Even though the 24-year-old scored 14 times in 65 regular season games, he disappeared at times when it mattered most in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The team was not thrilled with only collecting three points in 16 postseason games. 

Being a former top-five pick oozing with potential, there's going to be a ton of suitors for acquiring Puljujarvi. It's actually surprising a deal hasn't been completed yet considering how long trade rumors have been swirling and how good Puljujarvi can be. For now, he's busy being a positive figure in the community.
