Proposed trade between the Habs and Oilers: we have just learned that the GM of Edmonton has agreed to showcase many players

Since the start of the season, the Edmonton Oilers have undoubtedly been the biggest disappointment in the NHL.

After two consecutive seasons of at least 100 points, the team from northern Alberta has won only five games, and despite a coaching change, the Oilers have just suffered three consecutive defeats at the time of writing.

Let's say that Connor McDavid and his team can thank the Sharks and the Blackhawks for being even more miserable this year and for not having the ignominy of languishing at the bottom of the overall standings.

That said, as reported by The Website Marqueur.com, Ken Holland is currently very active on the trade market, and there are all sorts of rumors surrounding a potential trade with the Canadiens involving goalie Samuel Montembeault (even after signing his contract).


But now there seems to be something new.

According to TSN journalist Ryan Rishaug, all Oilers players would be available on the trade market, except for McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.


Wow!

It must be admitted that with the way the Oilers are playing this season, changes are necessary.

Just look at the performance of the team's goalies who are struggling greatly, especially young Stuart Skinner.

A Calder Trophy finalist last year, the young goalie was pulled from last Wednesday's game after conceding four goals in the first period against the Carolina Hurricanes, and it's clear his confidence is at an all-time low.

That's why the Oilers organization is looking for reinforcement in goal, and according to some sources, Ken Holland might have to pay a high price to acquire a quality goalie out of desperation.

Obviously, here in Quebec, we can have a certain interest in this matter because the three-way situation with the Canadiens' goalies will not last forever, and Kent Hughes could soon receive a call from his counterpart in Edmonton.

And Hughes will have plenty of options.
