Up and down, down and up. Anton Lander's hockey life in North America has turned into recurrent flight between Edmonton and California. In an interview with hockeysverige.se, he talks about his rough season, the constant travel between the NHL and AHL, the decision to let his wife and son stay in Sweden and the future when his NHL contract with the Edmonton Oilers expires.
"I know that my career isn’t over just because I don’t stay over here,” says Lander.

We are just a few days from the NHL trade deadline, and for the Edmonton Oilers the shopping list is a little different this time.

Beyond the NHL team, there is an extreme need at forward for the coming year, and we might see the Oilers make a deal to shore up that area of the pro depth chart.

The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are facing the reality of having to sell at the deadline, while their neighbors in down south Florida have rocketed up the standings after finally getting fully healthy. Also, Jonathan Toews is doing his best to put to bed the narrative that he's over the hill.

While it's fun to discuss the possibility of Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, or Kevin Shattenkirk getting dealt, there are other names that are just as likely, maybe even more likely, to be actually be traded when deadline day rolls around.
Without further adieu, here are three under the radar trade targets.
