This potential trade talk seems to be tied to the Oilers' efforts to retain their pending free agents. It appears they might need to move Kane's $5.125 million cap hit to free up space.
Jeff Jackson said they are trying to sign all of their UFAs and they are working at it.

Kane had a rough Stanley Cup playoff run, hampered by injuries, which might make other teams hesitant to take on his significant cap hit, especially considering his off-ice history.
