I think the Edmonton Oilers have finally realized that things are not working in their franchise.
Something’s gotta give. And that came in the form of Devan Dubnyk.
As explained on TMMOTS, the Oilers traded away 27 year old Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Matt Hendricks. Hendricks has played left-wing and center for the Colorado Avalanche, Washington Capitals, and Nashville Predators before being traded to the Oilers today. He has two goals and two assists this season for the Preds and sits at a -5 rating. Dubnyk has played only for the Oilers in the NHL and his records this season are 3.36 GAA and .894 save percentage.
According to CBC.ca, Craig McTavish, general manager of the Edmonton Oilers, was quoted saying, “we really felt for everybody it was a time for change with Devan.”
Not long after the announcement that the Oilers had traded Dubnyk, another Oilers announcement was made that they had acquired Ben Scrivens from the L.A. Kings for a 3rd round draft pick.
Now the rumors are swirling around the idea that the Carolina Hurricanes are shopping Cam Ward. On our FanSided site, there is a quote from Darren Dreger on twitter stating that Cam Ward rumors are flying even though the goaltender is on the injury reserve list right now but may return to action very soon.
On CapGeek.com, it says that Ward’s cap hit is $6.3 million. Should the Calgary Flames get in on this action?
Hey, Carolina, have you ever heard of a guy named Mike Cammalleri…?
