More on the Oilers – Are the looking at Jake Allen and/or Thomas Greiss
At this time last week, no doubt everyone thought Edmonton was going to make a goalie move. The Oilers didn’t for two reasons. First, they just didn’t believe what they could get would really solve their problems long-term.
Brian Elliott and Jonas Hiller, for example, will be free agents with no guarantee of staying. Second, Devan Dubnyk finished strong last week, which is the easiest solution. It’s also very possible the organization believes team defence is more worrisome than goaltending. The Anaheim Ducks, St. Louis Blues and Washington were certainly among the teams Edmonton talked to. There was some belief the Oilers had looked at Jake Allen and/or Thomas Greiss. But Allen is very much part of St. Louis’s future and the Greiss stuff appears incorrect.
