The Oilers remain to seek a defenseman … The Oilers and Senators have actually called around Matt Dumba
TSN: Pierre LeBrun claimed that Edmonton Oilers GM Ken Holland is speaking to groups a bit regularly nowadays as he’s searching for a defenseman. He’s not in panic setting right now.
“So yes, our understanding is he has talked to Arizona about Chychrun, to Montreal about Joel Edmundson. Think of a team has a defenceman potentially on the trade market and the Edmonton Oilers are trying to investigate fully what that means and what the price is – the prices are very high. I think Ken Holland is willing to be patient, doesn’t want to make a panic move.”
The Oilers looked the Canadiens Monday evening
The Oilers and the Ottawa Senators have actually signed in on Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba according toDarren Dreger Dumba is a pending UFA and a right-handed defenseman.
“The problem from the Wild’s standpoint is they need him. They’re playing pretty well right now. They’re not sure just yet they are ready to move on from Matt Dumba even though you look into the future and you see the cap issue of the Minnesota Wild … But the price would be high and then the Wild would have to hit the market potentially to find someone to replace Matt Dumba.”
Teams are calling the Sharks regarding Erik Karlsson
TSN: Pierre LeBrun notes that groups have actually spoken with the San Jose Sharks regarding defenseman Erik Karlsson regardless of still having a big agreement– 4 years left at $11.5 million per.
“Well, Karlsson has continued to have a torrid season and what’s happened subsequently – we can confirm that teams have engaged with the San Jose Sharks about what a trade could look like. I still think it’s more likely this waits until the off-season, if at all. Karlsson has a full no-move … but the noteworthy aspect here is that teams have called and have talked to San Jose about Erik Karlsson.”
