    Default [Just for Fun] Oilers and Flames swap #4's

    According to the article below, Puljujarvi could be on a short leash. Not to the minors, mind you, but right out of the organization! This seems premature and ridiculous in the extreme, but from what we have seen from GMs lately nothing can be ruled out.

    So...what if the Albertans swapped their disappointing #4's...Puli for Bennett? As a Flames fan I say - what the hell...couldn't hurt.

    As much as this would be fun to see... we would Never see it happen. Neither team is going to risk sending a player that is still young across the province to have him break out and become a star their. It would haunt the team that lost the trade for years and years.

    I still have Pulj's ceiling much above Bennett's. Don't think this would happen from either side as PH mentioned.

    Even though this article thinks he's on a short leash, I don't think the Oilers are going to rush anything with him or jump to any silly decisions with the 20 year old.

    Here's a follow up article to the one in the OP.

    Even if it made sense the deal would never get done, if only because these teams don't do big deals with each other and the downside for either GM would be too much to take the chance. I was more than anything marveling at the prospect of the Oilers already thinking of giving up on Puljujarvi.

    I agree. I just wanted to post a follow up column to the one you posted that kind of offers a bit more then what Stauffer said this morning.

    Dobber has these guys very close. I also wonder how much Pulj's ceiling will fall if he puts up another year this year like last year?

    I agree that a trade like this, between these two teams, seems very unlikely. But it's certainly a fun thought. Imagine the incentive that would light under each player....

    Can't see Pooljujube being dealt for Rhinefart. The city has a one failed Reinhart limit.
