If the Oilers and Boston are talking, I’m going to suggest a deal could get done. These two teams have been trading partners for some very famous deals (Moog-Ranford, Guerin-Carter) and one suspects there’s a match here too.
What will Edmonton give up? Whitney is strongly rumored, Hemsky has been mentioned a lot, Paajarvi, Khabibulin, and on it goes. The Oilers are likely going to be asking for roster players, so names like Nathan Horton, Johnny Boychuk as well as prospects like Alex Khokhlachev, Ryan Spooner and others could be involved.
Bruins-Oilers trade talk is something we should treat seriously.
