New Trade Partner Emerges To Solve Oilers Goaltending

Earlier today a scenario was presented that could bring a new goaltender to Edmonton while providing Jack Campbell a fresh start.

Recently reports had come out that Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Elvis Merzlikins was open to a fresh start somewhere new. The 29-year-old is having one of the better seasons of his career but is still stuck on the lowly Blue Jackets.

A new theory provided by an NHL reporter suggests that a Campbell for Merzlikins swap could be a good idea for both sides.
