<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ArakinSkywalker</b></div><div>I don't know what the pricetag is on puljujarvi, plus AA is a rental here, where i think we'd want to keep puljujarvi and i donno what the money will be like next season.

Chicago isn't bringing out the best in anyone right now. I think AA is deep enough in his career where he knows he would be a role player and accept the role he gets on this team where younger guys like puljajarvi still want to show they can be top 6 players, plus his speed i think would work well with our 3rd line.</div></div>

How much would Edmonton as for JP? I know they've soured on him but he still has that 1st-round pedigree. If they'd do a "change-of-scenery" swap for someone like Kaut, that would be cool.</div></div>

I don't think the price for JP is very high. There have been. Rumblings that Edmonton went from thinking they'd need to attach an asset or retain on him to optimism they'll get something in return without retention. So my guess is Kaut or a 4th or something like that. My speculation (with nothing to back it) is that they may want to send him to the East though.

In any case, he does have some untapped skill, and I like him in a third line role more than AA. To me, AA is a top six guy who isn't good enough to be in the top 6. One of those no man's land players.
