Could the Edmonton Oilers trade Jesse Puljujarvi if Jake Virtanen makes the group?
Mark Spector: If Jake Virtanen has the ability to make the Edmonton Oilers lineup this season, and if gets an agreement near the league minimum, would GM Ken Holland trade Jesse Puljujarvi?
Without Virtanen the Oilers don’t have a great deal of depth down the ideal side, and it wouldn’t enable them to trade Puljujarvi for a draft choice. The Oilers aren’t truly able to trade Puljujarvi for anything of worth.
Not truly sure that Holland would move him.
