Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: Oilers Get Left Behind at Deadline in Holland’s Last Kick at the Can

Well, it’s been a helluva run here. As I write this the trade deadline is about four(ish) hours away and I don’t think the Oilers are going to do much. I hope they do but it’s looking unlikely. Holland doesn’t want to upset the apple cart here and he’s happy with the group on hand. So, if that’s it, I think Edmonton is in a really good place as long as the health bug doesn’t catch up to them. They’ve not been as deep as they are right now for a really long time. They’ve got solid goaltending, the defense is one of the best in the league, the offense is one of the best in the league and the ros ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: Is Eberle About to Come Home?

King Kenny’s decided to go for depth as opposed to a top-heavy club going into the playoffs and I have to say, I kinda like it. They know they’re going to face 4-line teams and without one of their own they’d be skating uphill both ways. If you’re a longtime reader, you know that my whole thing with roster construction is the strength of the spine. Meaning how strong is a club right down the middle with its four centers, it’s top-4 defense, and the goalie. Well, with the additions of Henrique and Carrick, two players who will have ZERO questions with regards to their roles on the team, the Oil ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: Stauffer Lays Out the Entire Plan

The news today should be all about how Bob Stauffer’s basically laid out what the Edmonton Oilers are going to do at the deadline and how they’re going to do it. Now, your choice as fan here is to either believe it at face value or consider it misdirection and believe Ken Holland is going to take one more massive swing before he sails off into the sunset. There’s a bit more chatter on Adam Henrique, too. Three days before the deadline, and the following tweet get dropped… Remember when the Ekholm whispers begun last year?… I’m just saying. I’m sensing with the D market quickly shrinking actio ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: Stauffer Says Big Deadline Deal this Year Will be “Difficult” to Replicate

Are the Oilers going to do all their shopping with one team this year? It sounds like they’ve got their eyes on a romantic coming home story featuring a former Canadian World Junior hero. Also, I’ll say this, Ken Holland and his team have their work cut out for them because they’re competing with other top clubs who’ve got actual trade capital and prospect depth and aren’t bent over a barrel because they’re handcuffed by the salary cap. As you’ll see in the tweet below, we’re probably not going to get Pavel Buchnevich going to Edmonton nor will the team see Jake Guentzel. I’m still on the boat ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: This is One Oilers Trade Target We’ve Not Talked about Much But Should Be

During today’s 32 Thoughts podcast, Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek Discussed the upcoming trade deadline plans that the Edmonton Oilers might have. We’re going to talk about that and we’re going to talk about a winger I’ve not spoken to much in recent weeks, but he’s somebody who’s won a Stanley Cup, he’s a guy who’s definitely a fit for what the Oilers need, and he’s somebody who is very familiar with playing in a Canadian market. I should start prefacing these blogs with the fact that I write them a day in advance and because we’re getting so close to the deadline there’s a good chance I m ..read more

What’s it going to cost the Oilers to get a 3rd team to take on some salary for them at the deadline? Is there one team that could help Edmonton get all the pieces on their trade deadline shopping list all at once AND offer a discount? What’s up with the goaltending? Are the Oilers going to shore that up or ride Skinner until he drops dead of exhaustion? We’re answering all of that and more today! I should start prefacing these blogs with the fact that I write them a day in advance and because we’re getting so close to the deadline there’s a good chance I might write about a player or a team a ..read more

The trade prices are slowly being revealed to us and surprisingly, they might favor the Edmonton Oilers more than we thought they might. Waiting until the day before the trade deadline in order to accrue even more cap space might work out to be a genius move. We’ll have to wait and see. Today, more or less another helping of the same dish we’ve been lapping up all week long. Which RWers are the Oilers targeting? Who’s the right-shot bottom six center that Edmonton’s going to get? Will Ken Holland end up stacking some players from the same club to get a cheaper price? Edmonton’s 2024 1st round ..read more

The closer we get to the NHL trade deadline, the more I’m seeing the Oilers connected to pairs of players on teams like Adam Henrique and Sam Carrick, Scott Laughton and Sean Walker, Alexandre Carrier and Colton Sissons, or Nic Dowd and Anthony Mantha. It wouldn’t shock me if we started hearing David Savard and Jake Evans or Jordan Eberle and Brian Dumoulin, right? Man, did Dallas get away with highway robbery in the Tanev deal. Oettinger had better stay healthy or that defense is going to be absolutely wasted and that’d be a shame because it looks fantastic right now. I should start prefacing ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: There’s No Way This Deal Could Go Down, Could It?

Today, I want to talk about a massive mega-deal Edmonton could make with the Boston Bruins. It’s not the kind of thing that happens often at the deadline, a big trade between Cup contending clubs, but considering the names involved; I wouldn’t put it past either GM. Now, the Oilers have pundits scrambling to figure out what they’re going to do at the deadline and if I had to guess, their options are limited to shoring up the weaknesses of the roster. Meaning, upgrading on Ceci, bringing in some energy for the 4th line, and getting a better backup goalie. I don’t feel like they’ve got the asset ..read more

Edmonton Oilers Trade Talk: Provorov, Mantha, and Kunin the Latest Names Connected to Edmonton

Anthony Mantha, Ivan Provorov, and Luke Kunin are the latest names being spoken aloud in connection to the Edmonton Oilers as we appraoch the NHL trade deadline, but I’ve gone one more and Bob Stauffer has whispered his name on his radio show briefly in the past. This guy would be the kind of player fans love AND he’s a right shot, but that’s not the cherry on top. The big thing with him is that he’s an ace on the dot. So not only could the Oilers have their faceoff specialist, but all the good Oilers teams have had a dedicated tough guy. This player is that as well and he’s fought the leagues ..read more
