What would I do? Would I decide to take a flier on the Finn?

 

Have you met me?

 

SUOMI!

 

🇫🇮

 

But, like brelic says, it is a tough call. Rationally, if you're talking about a low lottery pick from Edmonton or, if the "rental" player (say, Simmonds) helps Edmonton into the playoffs and your pick gets into the middle-to-late round, I'd rather take the "disappointing" 4th overall.

 

I agree i take the project in Jesse...is it risky?? Sure.

 

However for Simmer it's worth the risk....for the upside hopefully it can present.

 

 

They have a nice stable of kids already coming this kid is already here.

 

Question is will the Oilers do it?? Hell i'll even throw Andrew Macdonald in to sweeten it... :ph34r:

There was a Simmonds to EDM rumour which somebody in Philly flat-out lied about, according to TSN. Bob McKenzie excoriated the guy on twitter over it. That's all that I've heard.

Yeah, so that.  Turns out Carchidi (local Flyers beat writer) retweeted a fake tweet from TSN.  Still, there have been rumors that EDM may have an interest in Simmonds.  Curious if anyone had heard something similar up there.  

 

Simmonds does have a modified NTC.  Believe he can submit a list of 12 teams he does not want to be traded to.  Wonder if EDM would be on that list.  Probably not, but folks probably need to be mindful of the NTC when thinking about what might be a good fit.

Nothing to do with Puljujarvi as return for him, but 30-year UFA wingers playing the back nine of their careers don't always fetch a value which is commensurate with what they can still do on the ice.

For sure.  Though, I imagine there is going to be a bit of a bidding war for his services and a team that thinks they can sign him may be willing to pay handsomely. 

 

I would love to see him end up in Nashville, which is rumored to be interested.  He would be a nice addition to their PP in particular.  Wonder who/what they would be willing to give up.  I think the conversation needs to start with Tolvanen, a guy I wanted the Flyers to select.  Any picks they give will be late rounders.

I would be interested in Dante Fabbro too though it doesn't have to be Tolvanen even though i would prefer a forward.

No problem with Fabbro.  I'd prefer a forward, which is why I said the conversation starts (but doesn't end) with Tolvanen.

The only scary thing with Fabbro is he is a college prospect so he could always opt not to sign with the Flyers and just walk to another team ala Jimmy Vesey....and then the Flyers would be left with nothing...

Good point.  Wonder how he'd feel about the Flyers given the other young players in the system.

He is a righty.

 

They already have Myers, Friedman, Wylie and St. Ivany as righties in the system not to mention Gudas already on the roster.

 

So yeah he could look at that and think about his path to a starting spot and prefer to go somewhere else.

 

You just never know. It why i prefer Tolvanen besides he is a natural LW which the Flyers could always use.

      @vis @radoran   I think that a lot of people see that draft position and picture a pure point producer, and that (imo) isn't Puljujarvi's drawing card. There isn’t a without-the-puck facet of the winger role during 5v5 that Puljujärvi doesn’t show strength in. He helps zone exits, entries, disrupts breakouts with well-time poke checks, forces dump-ins with backpressure, forcing turnovers. He does all of those things at the NHL level right now. He was a very strong (but not elite) produ

      Good character win last night.   Down 2-0 and 3-2, and with their rookie goalie having an off night, the team dug in and came up with some goals to help him out. That's a nice change. It's good for Hart to have nights like this - where the team bails him out - and good for the team to score more than 2.    The 5 forward PP looked good, but I feel that it's just waiting to be exploited by a more aggressive PK team.    JVR, Simmonds, and Patrick all needed this scorin

      Agreed with Bre that seeing some scoring was welcome relief.  It may not matter much at this juncture but at least it makes for watchable hockey.  JVR's hat trick was "unusual." It was more being in the right place than show of skill.  But as they say, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

      I think they definitely feel he should be further along as a #4 overall. But @brelic is right that it's too early to declare "bust."   In some respects Puljujarvi hasn't gotten the good look in the right place in the lineup. In others, he's 20.   If anything, EDM might be more inclined to move him if they are "disappointed". If he even turns out to be a Teravainen-type player (20/60), that's not bad.   Obviously, I'd like JR's insight as well!

      Oh, I'm sure they would be interested in him. HOW interested? I couldn't hope to say. Trading Puljujarvi represents extreme risk for Edmonton. Making trades (Hall, #16 for Reinhart, Eberle, etc) is how they've gotten themselves into this pickle. For my part, I have zero confidence in them being able to get something like this done correctly.   There was a Simmonds to EDM rumour which somebody in Philly flat-out lied about, according to TSN.
