Eight sleeps to the Feb. 29 NHL trade deadline and here’s a thought. With the Oilers now 30th, what could you get for the Oilers first round — potentially No. 1 overall — draft choice between now and the actual lottery draft?

Clock is ticking on Justin Schultz in Edmonton

Nothing imminent as far as I can tell, but the clock is ticking on Justin Schultz in Edmonton. Like Cowen with Ottawa, it is time for both the player and organization. A deal will happen, it’s just a question of when.

McKenzie Thinks Teams Talking To Oilers About Schultz

On Justin Schultz being a front-burner issue for the Oilers:

“Yep. There’s no question they would like to move him.

“But again – I’m not saying he won’t get moved, because one thing about skating defensemen in the National Hockey League is even if they perform as inconsistently, or at times as poorly, as Justin Schultz has over the course of his time in Edmonton, there’s always some team out there that says, ‘Yeah, you know what? We’ll fix this guy.’ Because people look at him and he continues to look like he’s got the tools.

Will Eberle end up with the Islanders?

Oilers trying to get Hamonic deal done, Friedman says

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman talking to Oilers uber-insider Bob Stauffer on Oilers Now and dropping a few trade rumour bombshells.

Stauffer mentioned the Oilers trying to upgrade at right defence from Justin Schultz by moving for either Sami Vatanen of Anaheim or Travis Hamonic of the Islanders, as both teams can use a scoring winger.

Don’t be surprised if the Oilers move out a right shot D within a few weeks
