The Latest On Jesse Puljujarvi’s Situation In Edmonton

from David Staples of the Edmonton Journal,

This in from Jesse Puljujarvi’s agent Markus Letho on Vancouver Sportsnet radio 650 with an update on Puljujarvi’s situation.

As to the suggestion that Puljujarvi was headed back to Europe this year, Lehto said, “First off, I’m not sure that Jesse is going to go back to Europe. I don’t think Jesse himself ever, or I don’t think I did, ever told anyone that unless he’s traded he’s for sure going to be back in Europe.

“What Jesse has been saying to (Oilers GM Holland) Kenny and everybody else, and what I’ve been saying, is we just don’t think it’s going to work out any more. He could definitely benefit from a fresh start. I think he deserves a fresh start. I think he has done everything that Edmonton coaches, management, they had a plan. He went down three times to the American League. Every time he played excellent and he was brought back up, right?

“It’s very unfortunate, I think that it’s been in the media a little bit, in Jesse’s mouth there has been put all kinds of words and in my mouth too. I never actually said anything. We’ve been having a really good dialogue with Kenny Holland about the trade possibility and obviously I’ve got so many teams calling me, asking what’s going on. Obviously nothing has happened yet.”

Asked about giving it a go with new Oilers GM Ken Holland in charge, Lehto said, “Well, that’s something that really kind of makes Jesse and really myself think that he should try and go back. But at the same time it’s a lot like a confidence issue here.
