With the Oilers potentially looking at a deep run in the playoffs, their sights now shift to the trade deadline in order to add assets that'll help them perform in the playoffs. Chris Johnston recently discussed who the Oilers should target.

According to the insider, the Oilers could be interested in bringing back two of their former players in Edmonton.


"Looking at any significant forward, it's reasonable to expect that EDM will be exploring those options," said @reporterchris on the CJ Show.

Johnston speculates on a few names, including Jake Guentzel, David Perron, and Jordan Eberle.


Johnston mentioned that the Oilers could be interested in bringing back their former first round pick Jordan Eberle.

At 33, Eberle has 23 points in 46 games and he could be had at a reasonable price.

On the other hand, David Perron, 35, who scored 21 points in 40 games would be a great fit. He played two seasons in Edmonton between 2013 and 2015.

Guentzel in Edmonton? Major Rumors Emerge

There's been a lot of rumors about Jake Guentzel, who'll be a free agent this summer. With the Penguins making a push for the playoffs, he could remain in Pittsburgh. However, if they believe they won't make it, the management could decide to trade him by March 8th.

The Oilers are looking for any possible help, and there's no doubt that Guentzel could play an important role for them in the playoffs.

Even if the Oilers already have great offensive talent and many believe they should go after defensemen, Guentzel, Eberle and Perron would be interesting additions to the team.
