NHL Insider Confirms That Edmonton Oilers Are Considering Trading Broberg

This comes after a report that Broberg had requested permission from the team to seek a trade and it was granted.

However, later reports then stated the exact opposite, that he was not in fact, given permission to seek a trade by the team.

Holland on @OilersNow says he did not give Darren Ferris (Broberg's agent) permission to speak to teams.

Says he understands why Broberg is frustrated, but stresses patience. States the misunderstanding has been resolved.

Also confirms Campbell will get one more opportunity.

Notably, Broberg was loaned to the AHL after news of his trade request became public. This could be seen as a form of punishment for the player for leaking false information. Regardless, it now does appear to be the case that Broberg may be on the move soon. However, he also was not playing very well in the NHL so that could be a coincidence.
