A recent report has surfaced that the Edmonton Oilers are gearing up to trade for this three-time Stanley Cup Champion in order to help turn their season around.

Oilers in Desperation Mode To Try and Turn Season Around



The Edmonton Oilers have continued their struggles despite some drastic measures made by the team, including sending their goaltender down to the minors and firing the head coach.

...A player like Pat Maroon would fit the bill on all three of these fronts - (Not sure his availability). There are others who check one or two of the boxes. Point is - Holland has to find a way to check a box, and it needs to happen now. Also, wouldn't be shocked to see.../


It's clear they will have to do something, it just depends on what exactly they are willing to risk and for what in return.
