It's just another week in the NHL trade rumor mill as the Internet is loaded with potential deals that could take place before the trade deadline.
One team that has been linked to every available goalie is Edmonton and for good reason as the young Oilers still have time to make a run at the playoffs, but only if they can find some help in the net and on the back line.
The latest rumors from Steve Simmons from the Toronto Sun have suggested the LA Kings could look to move former Maple Leafs net minder Ben Scrivens. Los Angeles was worried when Jonathan Quick was injured, but the emergence of rookie Martin Jones now has the Kings with too much talent in the net, making a deal likely in the coming weeks.
Scrivens is just 25 years of age and the youngster is off to a solid start on the West Coast, losing just three of is 14 starts since the trade from Toronto. Scrivens also has an excellent save percentage of .941 and would make Edmonton instantly better in the net.
The Oilers have just too much young offensive talent to struggle like they have and making a deal now could boost the confidence of the squad and its fans. This deal would land them a young goalie with great potential and a player they can help build around defensively, making this a trade the front office should strongly consider before the NHL trade deadline hits in just a few weeks time.
