Goalie trade between the Oilers and the Canadiens: Ken Holland has just announced that they are satisfied with their current goalies

After having a very bad start to the season, where they posted a lackluster record of 2-9-1, the Edmonton Oilers are now back in the playoff picture as they have won 18 of their last 24 games.

If the team's sudden resurgence can be associated with Connor McDavid's awakening, the excellent performance of goalie Stuart Skinner cannot be overlooked.

The Oilers' goaltender has won his last five starts, allowing only eight goals, and it can be said that he has somewhat resolved the team's situation in front of the net.

As reported by Gabriel Simard, from Habsolumentfan.com, Oilers General Manager Ken Holland spoke with insider Pierre Lebrun and stated that he was very satisfied with the performance of his two goalies, the other being Calvin Pickard.


"Stuart Skinner is playing very well right now and Calvin Pickard is an excellent backup goalie."

Let's say this situation has temporarily put an end to trade rumors, some involving the Canadiens with Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau.

However, the Oilers are not immune to another bad streak and if Skinner and Pickard were to struggle again, Kent Hughes' phone might start ringing.
