Wrapping Up: This Must Be The Place
So here we are, feet on the ground and head in the sky. All of these roads have brought us to the present day, where a postponed NHL season made all seem quiet on the hockey front. Except for the rumor mill’s dull roar regarding these two Scandinavian forwards. While Pulujarvi has done a bit more to show he’s worth the investment, Andersson certainly still has the chance to reach his potential in a new environment.

Edmonton’s reported asking price is currently set at Andersson and a first-round pick for Pulujjarvi. Oilers GM Ken Holland is trying to establish a high asking price from which he can negotiate down. There is little chance of the New York Rangers, or any team will part with a first-rounder in such a deep draft class.
If Gorton decides to sweeten the pot to make a deal, it should be with a lower round pick or a mid-level prospect. Will the two teams reach an agreement with these similar storylines? The mystery continues for us all. It seems like a perfect match, but who is to say that ever comes to fruition. We don’t know what the future holds in store for either player’s NHL prospects.
But before you go all “Psycho Killer” on me for leaving you with more questions than answers…. at least you got a good Talking Heads playlist out of the deal. Click the link on the song title link to see the video.
