With the NHL trade rumors mill going crazy yesterday that Evander Kane could sign with the Edmonton Oilers after GM Ken Holland stated in his presser that the Oilers have contacted Kane.
Just because Holland said they were interested does not mean Kane will sign with the Oilers. He might see a better chance at winning a Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers or Toronto Maple Leafs.
Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports if the Oilers do not sign Kane they should look at making a trade for Montreal Canadiens power forward Josh Anderson.
Matheson went on to say, Anderson isn’t cheap, would the Habs at least listen to an offer of a first-round pick in 2022, forward Xavier Bourgault and something else?
