NHLTR: Edmonton Oilers Shopping Several Defensemen

With the recent struggles of the Edmonton Oilers, is Ken Holland about to move someone from the defence to address the scoring struggles? With Matt Benning close to return and call-ups Caleb Jones and William Lagesson on the roster, the Oilers could be willing to move anyone of Adam Larsson, Caleb Jones, William Lagesson, or Matt Benning for scoring help.

Mark Spector of Sportsnet lists possible trade targets as:
  • Wayne Simmonds (NJ)
  • Kyle Palmieri (NJ)
  • Tyler Toffoli (LA)
  • Anthony Duclair (OTT)
  • Jake DeBrusk (BOS)
  • Adam Henrique (ANA)
  • Brandon Saad (CHI)
The Oilers are having difficulties scoring and have too many defence prospects. Perfect example John Marino of the Pens, having a great season in Pittsburgh but he would have had a hard time getting top 6 minutes in the AHL with the depth of defence prospects for the Oilers. How long will Holland wait?
