Like many Stanley Cup contenders, the Edmonton Oilers made a serious pitch for former San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier at the NHL trade deadline.

Edmonton Oilers were interested in a Timo Meier trade
Elliotte Friedman was on his 32 Thoughts TV segment on Hockey Night in Canada and stated the Edmonton Oilers made a significant trade offer to the San Jose Sharks for Timo Meier.
