Major Trade Incoming Between Bruins and Oilers?


Since the Oilers made the decision to place goaltender Jack Campbell on waivers and assign him to the AHL's Bakersfield Condors, there has been a lot of speculation regarding potential trade scenarios.

Could General Manager Ken Holland start to feel the heat? This might push him to make a move sooner than later.

There have been reports of trade discussions with teams like the Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings, both of which currently have three goalies on their roster. However, despite conversations involving Montreal's Jake Allen, there have been no recent developments, as reported by Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Other rumors have connected the Oilers to goalies Jordan Binnington of the St. Louis Blues and Carter Hart of the Philadelphia Flyers. But it would certainly be complicated to make a deal involving either one of these star goalies.

Weekes Connects Swayman to the Edmonton Oilers


Insider Kevin Weekes shared a surprising trade scenario, expressing his willingness to "move heaven and earth" to acquire Jeremy Swayman for the Oilers.

Weekes humorously stated that he would "pay the moon, the stars, and the sun," even jokingly suggesting involving one of the three wise men in the deal.

It's worth noting that Jeremy Swayman's name had previously been linked to the Oilers.

Before the season started, there were rumors of Ken Holland inquiring with the Boston Bruins about Swayman and Linus Ullmark. Swayman eventually agreed to a one-year arbitration deal worth $3.475 million in the summer.

The Oilers' pursuit of Swayman appears unexpected and ambitious, but he could help the team save their season.
