Major trade proposal emerges for Jake Allen: Caufield's former teammate and friend would be the target

Unlike the Montreal Canadiens, the Edmonton Oilers are struggling significantly with their goaltending, which is heavily impacting the team's performance.

Despite having players like Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, the Oilers are currently one of the worst teams in the league, largely due to poor performances by their goalies.

There's growing impatience among the players and fans, and tensions are high.

Edmonton cannot afford to miss the playoffs this year, at any cost.

Serious moves are demanded, and increasingly, the Montreal Canadiens are being linked with the Oilers for a potential trade.

This is indeed a very valid point. The Oilers would benefit from paying a high price to acquire a proficient goalie like Jake Allen.

Stakes are high.

The very popular page HabsLinks goes even further, proposing a very specific trade.

The proposed trade is Dylan Holloway for Jake Allen in a one-for-one trade.

This is an interesting proposition.

Clearly, the Oilers are not developing Holloway properly, despite his immense potential. Should Kent Hughes take advantage of this?

Holloway, 22 years old, was drafted 14th overall in 2020, two picks ahead of Kaiden Guhle, and he has been phenomenal in the NCAA.

Playing alongside Cole Caufield, he scored 35 points in just 23 games during the 2020-21 season at Wisconsin.

In the AHL, he has accumulated 32 points in 45 games, including 15 goals.

Would you trade Jake Allen for Dylan Holloway, especially to reunite him with Cole Caufield?
