NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers Goaltending Options, Evander Kane, and Top 30 Trade Candidates
Six goaltending options for the Edmonton Oilers

Rory Boylen of Sportsnet: Potential goaltender targets for the Edmonton Oilers.

Marc-Andre Fleury – Would be the most costly to acquire if he’s made available. Maybe a better fit with the Colorado Avalanche or Pittsburgh Penguins. Paying a first-round pick for the Oilers might be costly.

Braden Holtby or Anton Khudobin – The Stars are battling the Oilers for a playoff position and may not want to trade them a goaltender. Khudobin is under contract next year at $2.2 million, which may not interest the Oilers.

Chris Driedger – Has struggled in net and with injuries this season in Seattle but has played better of late. Would the Kraken take an extra asset to take on Mikko Koskinen’s contract for this season?

Joonas Korpisalo – The pending UFA isn’t having a great season and may not be an upgrade in net for the Oilers.

Semyon VarlamovIlya Sorokin has taken the No. 1 spot with the New York Islanders. Varlamov has another year left at $5 million and the Islanders may want to move some salary since they are tight to the cap. He has a 16-team no-trade clause and the cost to acquire wouldn’t be cheap.

Kane’s status could be updated this weekend

Irfaan Gaffar: It’s sounding like by the end of this weekend we could hear something regarding the Evander Kane investigation.

If things go well for him, it’s possible that he could be signed (Edmonton) and play in Vancouver on Tuesday.
