Morning, folks!

It’s Labour Day monday here in Edmonton, which is typically a marquee weekend for the CFL and therefore the local EE Football Team.

However, the CFL has been scuppered for the year, so there is nothing going on right now. Sure, other teams are enjoying The House That Daryl (and millions of taxpayer dollars) Built and the road to the Stanley Cup, but we care not for them. So what’s there to talk about, you ask?

Well, how about Jesse Puljujarvi?


What would prompt such a question? Check out these tweets from the local MSM from over the weekend:

This one was particularly frustrating, given Zack Kassian’s path to 1RW. Keen observers will remember that Kassian was given permission to seek a trade last season — during the season, too, if you want to talk about distractions — and the Oilers couldn’t trade him. He was then rewarded with the best landing spot of his career, and a new deal worth twice the one they couldn’t trade one year before.

Again, recall that Leon Draisaitl didn’t find success in the NHL until he was recalled in November 2015 and put between Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.

It’s not just Stauffer, either, though his might be the most concerning given his connection with the team. Here’s Matty:

Which, obviously, sparked some debate:

It’s not just tweets, either:
