    Hopefully he has a strong finish to his season and either fetches us the return that we want or comes back next season ready to do well as an Oiler.

    Hahahha... well good riddance. You put zero effort in learning English and aren’t prepared mentally to play in the NHL and you knew you were going to be a top choice... then have fun playing in some substandard league overseas... We own you Jesse.

    Keep scoring Jesse. The more you score the more we get back for your whining hairy ass.

    He'll become a UFA after the 2023-2024 season. So he will be 26 I think.

    So if you're Holland do you sell him for as little as a 2nd round pick or do you tell him that either he comes back or as long as you're GM of the team he will stay in Finland if he won't come back to play for us?

    I think the page has turned on this BBO... he is not going to come back and play for the Oilers. Incidentally, I always did find it rather weird that Puljujarvi actually hitched a ride after practice from a random dude outside the rink. Why on earth he didn't drive or otherwise get a lift from one of the teammates is... strange. On the other hand I remember one video where he was doing some Finnish(?) rap song in the back of Caggiula's car, which I thought was good to see team bonding like that.

    Just a really strange saga. I was genuinely pulling for the kid but with all of this, frankly it's better to move on. Whether he returns what Holland has set out as a minimum.. I'm dubious of that.

    Incredibly stupid on his part to piss away $900k+ worth of salary when you haven't really earned that much in your career, that's a lot of money to throw away for 1/3 of that in Finland.

    He would have gotten a decent share of time on the 2nd line too if he had been willing to work.

    The CBA is kind of confusing with age.

    He'll be 26 for basically the whole season, but it's technically his 27 year old season because he turns 27 that year.

    Love having a savvy veteran GM who doesn't flinch in situations like this and panic deal a disgruntled player. Past management and Puljujarvi share accountability for a failure to launch career for a blue chip pedigree player. This European 'Vacation' is also the best situation for both for Pool Party to rebuild confidence and his game against right size competition. The physical toolkit is without question but there are real questions - did his development stall out because of mental maturity of facing overwhelming culture shock (language, N. America lifestyle and NHL competition too early) or is there a deficient hockey IQ that was masked by dominating smaller, weaker junior competition? The player gets a do-over to control his destiny thousands of miles away from NHL scouts, media and fans.

    Best case is Pulujarvi knocks it out of the park this year attracting NHL interests and a trade return that recovers sunk costs asset wise for Edmonton's investment of a top five pick. With marginal success of picks outside of the first round (really late first round and beyond), I believe Holland will return a player versus a draft pick(s)/lottery ticket when and if the right trading partner steps up. And if not, Pool Party can enjoy carving out a professional career in his homeland.

    Really a shame that both parties got this so wrong on a talent not ready for elite competition as a teenager.

    Not if he stays in Finland. He has to accrue 7 NHL seasons or turn 27. I believe the poster I responded to was assuming he was going to stay in Finland.

    That's not the issue though. Here is the actual rule:

    Puljujarvi turns 27 in May of 2025. And as of right now he has two accrued seasons in the NHL. the earliest he could become a UFA would be 2025 since he needs 5 more years after this one to meet the 7 years.

    I recall reading somewhere that pro leagues seasons count for European players wherever they play.

    At this point I’m hoping he decides to play for us next year, Holland says the door is and always was open to come back. He needed a full development year in another league, should have had it last year in the AHL and we wouldn’t be here. But I really think there’s still a solid 20 goal winger there once his confidence gets up.

    Hopefully he steps it up a notch. He's not exactly lighting the league on fire. Mediocre numbers to be honest.

    I don't have any faith that he'll be an impact player... for us. His game isn't suited to the NHL and he didn't seem to have the maturity/commitment/whatever to adapt.

    Depending on the placement of the second round pick and your confidence in our scouts, a high second would be a decent cash out option. That said, I don't really do either. I tell him the same message Holland has been this whole time (AFAIK): we still have a need for a winger, so if you're ready to work and think you're ready for NHL action, come back. Otherwise, we're still looking for a trade, but it needs to be a trade that works for the organization. If you want a trade to happen, the best thing you can do is demonstrate NHL quality dominance over there in Finland.

    I dont think Jesse ever will be NHL material. He lacks several characteristics, both as a player and person, and has displayed that he has no idea how to address his weaknesses, he has, as I had projected, a Magnus Paajarvi 2.0, but with better hands.
