The Edmonton Oilers are in a tough spot in a dominant pacific division, sitting just outside of a playoff spot with the Flames, Kings and Golden Knights all ahead of them on them standings.

The Blackhawks on the other hand are dead last in the NHL as they are taking place in their first year throughout their multi-year rebuild, and don't mind being dead last in the league.

The two could pair up for a trade to meet each others needs, but a third team in the Philadelphia Flyers may also be added in, the Oilers are in need of a defensemen and the Blackhawks sure wouldn't mind a draft pick or two while they offload veteran defenseman's such as Jake McCabe or Connor Murphy, to let their youth get more minutes.

Elliotte Friedman has now reported that a leading candidate for the Oilers blueline is Blackhawks defensemen Jake McCabe, and Philadelphia Flyers defensemen Justin Braun. McCabe is on a very friendly deal that the Oilers would love to have at just $4 million per year.
