Edmonton Oilers Rumors: 2 Trade Targets As Team's Final Addition

The Edmonton Oilers made a big splash in acquiring the perfect blend of defenceman to bolster their back-end in Mattias Ekholm, but they aren't yet done. The team moved out Jesse Puljujarvi prior to that to create some cap space, and still have a bit more room to add a depth piece up front.

Darren Dreger reported that the Oilers are not yet done this year and they're still looking for a forward. Dylan Holloway is out for a month and will likely play some games in the AHL once he heals up by the end of March before returning to Edmonton. The Oilers were looking at Tyler Bertuzzi, but that opportunity has since passed them by.

Edmonton has also had their eyes on Nick Bjugstad for a while and could set their sights to Max Domi once again as well. Both play a tough game, perfect for the playoffs. Domi would be more of an addition for the middle-six while Bjugstad would give the Oilers the depth forward they're looking for.

Both Domi and Bjugstad are having bounce-back seasons and would be cheaper to acquire than other free agents and be able to fit in under the salary cap for the Oilers. Domi has 18 goals and 49 points in 60 games this season and could have a cap hit of $1.5 million if the Chicago Blackhawks retain 50 percent. As for Bjugstad, he has a cap hit of just $900,00, was recently held out of action for trade-related reasons, and has 13 goals and 23 points in 59 games. Though Domi would cost a first round pick or close to it to be a rental, Bjugstad would cost somewhere between a third round pick and a fifth rounder.
