After last night time’s 5-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs it's far apparent that the Edmonton Oilers want an elite goalie if they need to contend for the Stanley Cup.
Trade Rumors were circulating in advance this season that the Oilers had interest in a -Andre Fleury alternate and that might be something the Oilers will take a look at if they are able to make Fleury’s cap hit work.
Friedman mentioned earlier within the week that the Oilers could be targeting goaltending, the left-side of the defence and a 3rd-line centre in a alternate.
The Oilers could in all likelihood need to find a manner to send Mikko Koskinen and his $4.5-million cap hit in any goalie change to unfastened up the cap area needed.
Whatever the Oilers do, GM Ken Holland will must be cunning because proper now they have got best simply over $1 million in to be had cap space.
