I'd have been keen on the Leafs somehow landing him but I also like laughing at the Oilers so...partial credit.

Puljujarvi is still an RFA. He just now has a place to make money and get into game shape until the decision deadline of Dec. 1st. If Edmonton trades his rights, or can otherwise convince him that they're not a trash fire vortex, he has an NHL out clause up until the deadline day. Otherwise he gets to play out the Liiga season and rebuild some confidence.

All the unsigned RFAs should just form a European super team.

Tkachuk-Point-Rantanen
Boeser-Kempe-Marner
Connor-Zacha-Laine
Fiala-Barbashev-Konecny

Werenski-McAvoy
Provorov-DeAngelo
Pettersson-Carlo

Honka

I mean Honka might get lit up in net but nobody wants him playing defence so attempting a position change might be in his best interests.

Now if Matthews and Aho drew out their negotiations, this team would be going (even more) places, lack of goalie notwithstanding.

I guess under those rules (all the RFA drag it out), they'd also have Binnington, Trouba, Meier, Ho-Sang, etc.

Bam!

Oulu is quite a nice spot. Visited there in summer so had pretty close to 24 hour daylight which was a bit bizarre. Fantastic beer festival and home to the air guitar world championships

Where do you thing Gards ends up? Sounds like he really likes Toronto and I'd assume would want to reap the rewards/win here but he'd have to take a massive discount to fit. Friedge mentions several teams with interest. It's an interesting case of the NHL's middle/upper-middle class. If you want to cash in it's going to be somewhere who has the space.

You'd have to figure that Gardiner has to get off the pot soon if he wants to get paid in the vicinity he feels he deserves. Eventually any team still kicking his tires will tire and move on to a slightly less attractive option. It's just about last call.

 I know he says that his back problem is no longer an issue. I'm just not sure everybody else is buying it.

He's not the first player to come back from injury and potential downside has never stopped a team from making a signing. I mean we took Joffrey Lupul!
