It's rare that we see this, but in the last few hours, a reputable journalist has put forward a big concrete trade proposal, and it involves the Montreal Canadiens as well as the Edmonton Oilers.

Plus, it's coming from a reporter who covers the Oilers. (Mark Spector) So it's really interesting to get his take on it, because he's well connected within the Oilers organization.

So check out his suggestion:

"This trade would not require the draft picks, in my opinion.


Puljujarvi goes to Montreal to make room under the salary cap. Montreal asks for Bourgault, Holland (Oilers GM) counter-offers with Lavoie.

Maybe neither: maybe Puljujarvi and a high pick instead." - Mark Spector

Here he was responding to another reporter's comment (Ryan Rishaug) that Joel Edmundson could be traded to Edmonton, for a second or third round pick, Bourgault and Puljujarvi.

So here is Spector's realistic suggestion:

To Montreal - Jesse Puljujarvi + Raphaël Lavoie (or a high draft pick)

To EDMONTON - Joel Edmundson

We obviously remember that this summer, many rumors linked Puljujarvi to the Habs. What do you think of this proposal? Would you do it? Would you prefer Lavoie or the top pick?
