According to pretty much every sports journalist in Philadelphia, Vincent Lecavalier is on the trade block.
Understandably, some in Edmonton have suggested him as a fit for the Oilers. He’s a reasonably big name, he’d add some size up the middle (6’4”, 215 pounds) and he’s still a very capable scorer.
It’s a bad idea.

Are there clues tonight available that indicate the next move for Edmonton?

You guys really are amazing. To this point, we've raised over $3000 for our friend Kelty and we can't thank you guys enough. The money we're raising is going to help her with all the physiotherapy that she's going to need after her surgery and your help is going to go a long way. If you don't have the cash to bid, we understand, but if you can help us spread the word that's doing more than enough to help. Today's item is another great one, we've got a Gordie Howe, Sid Abel, and Ted Lindsay signed pucks with picture and frame. Check it out.

Can Leon Draisaitl help fill the hole in the middle of the Oilers’ forward depth chart as early as next season?
