How on earth could we deal our Captain and most talented goalscorer to our biggest rival and a team just minutes down the road and in our same division? This is why I am in the belief that the Ottawa Senators organization may advise Puempel to stay put or loosen his demands. It would be like Jason Spezza from Ottawa saying "trade me to Toronto, that's the only place i'll go". That just isn't easy to do. It's near impossible to do.
This is why this trade is near impossible to make. Like I said, unless he loosens his demands, he'll likely remain a Pete. This is also why it has not hit the media, nor has the Petes side commented or leaked anything to the media and neither has Puempel or his agent, it's all being kept quiet by the parties involved, for obvious reasons. Either it's being dealt with internally and quietly to get done OR it is simply not going to be done. The latest I was told was Dave Reid has stated bluntly that he is not trading Matt Puempel.
well you must be real close to the source to know all this. Hoping that its not true and he stays. This will be a very good team this year and he would flourish under some talented centermen
