Nothing is going well in Edmonton, and Oilers general manager Ken Holland is currently exploring all avenues.
All players except Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl will be available to complete the transaction, TSN reporter Ryan Rishaug reported Thursday.
Aside from McDavid and Draisaitl, Holland reportedly doesn’t want to touch his 2024 first-round pick.
That means players like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, Evander Kane, Darnell Nurse or even Evan Bouchard could leave Alberta.
On November 12, the Oilers fired head coach Jay Woodcroft and replaced him with Kris Knoblauch.
The Alberta team won its first two games with Knoblauch on the bench, but has since lost its last three.
After 18 games this season, the Oilers are 5-12-1 and ranked 30th in the National Hockey League.
