Told, as of this hour, the Oilers are close to absolutely nothing. #NHLTrade

Hearing a name I thought I would have heard a lot more often past few days but have not…. until today. Jordan Eberle this is interesting!

Told Yakupov would welcome change of scenery. Montreal and Winnipeg among teams in mix for him. https://t.co/BoXZwKydYf

What’s the likelihood that Nail Yakupov gets traded before the trade deadline? Ryan Rishaug discusses what the Oilers expect in return for him and weighs in on who deserves the blame on Justin Schultz’s failure in Edmonton.
If Schultz and Purcell aren"t playing both getting traded. Purcell to LA or Florida. Schultz? Who knows? Tough night for Tychkowski on gm

Are the Edmonton Oilers shopping one of their former first overall picks? What is the market like for Jets’ captain Andrew Ladd? Could the Rangers land Eric Staal? The Insiders have the latest on these and more
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?
I love Yakupov asguy. Works his butt off, rink rat, cares. But, I'm tired of people saying Oil coaches should play him with better players.

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.
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.
"Tavares is an exceptional thinker, and he needs someone who thinks the game the same. Eberle has that ability." Button on trade rumour.

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.
P. Chiarelli would've seen a fair amount of Clendening at BU and don't be surprised if the Oilers move out a right shot D within a few weeks
