Here we are!

We've already reached the NHL trade deadline week, so yes, things are likely to get heated in the next few hours.

It will get heated in terms of announcements and rumors, but know that it will especially get heated behind the scenes. One thing's for sure, Kent Hughes' phone will be in high demand over the next hours/minutes.

A Trade Between the Canadiens and the Oilers Involving Jake Allen? That's What The Hockey News Believes




Goalie Jake Allen has indeed been a subject of speculation between Michael Traikos and Ryan Kennedy from The Hockey News, and it's always interesting when it comes from a serious media outlet that has no ties with the CH.

According to Kennedy, Jake Allen has a good annual contract. (you read that right)

Let's hope other NHL teams feel the same, but in short, his colleague Michael Traikos then added quite a bit:

Traikos thinks he will be traded (Jake Allen), even though Edmonton has been linked to other goalies like Juuse Saros and Jacob Markstrom.

For obvious reasons, Allen will cost MUCH less to acquire than Saros and Markstrom.

"For Edmonton, acquiring a goalie is not a bad idea. Stuart Skinner is playing very well these days, but he's not the most consistent masked man in the NHL. Having an Allen behind him could only be beneficial. And it would allow Connor McDavid's team to add playoff experience ahead of the playoffs." - Raphaël Simard

It's true that he could add some nice stability in front of the Oilers' net, as they've been burned more often than not in recent years due to goalies breaking down at the worst possible time.

What would you ask for, from the Oilers, for Jake Allen?
