Inside the Nation: More Puljujarvi drama, Draisaitl goal predictions, and the #SummerOfLineys

Happy Tuesday, Nation! As always, Dusty Nielson is back with another edition of Inside the Nation to break down all things Edmonton Oilers and make sense of what’s happening with the franchise we’re all doomed to love.

To start off today’s episode, Dusty jumps into things with yet another look at the latest Jesse Puljujarvi comments that hit the Internet today, including his ideal situation for where he believes he should be playing. Seeing as this situation does not appear to be salvageable, does it make sense for the Puljujarvi camp to continuously beat the unhappiness drum to the media? Are the Edmonton Oilers doing anything to help? With the Puljudrama out of the way, Dusty moved on to fellow Finn, Patrik Laine, and what it would cost to get him out of Winnipeg. Could the Oilers ever make a deal like that work? Probably not but it is fun to discuss anyway. Speaking of goal scorers, what do we expect for goal production from Leon Draisaitl in 2019/20? Would 40+ goals seem to be about right? Lastly, it wouldn’t be an episode of Inside the Nation without looking at the #SummerOfLineys? This time around, Dusty throws Cooper Marody in the mix and wonders if he might work as the third line centre?
