Potential Blockbuster Trade Emerging Between Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins

Published January 3, 2024 at 3:27 PM

The Edmonton Oilers have once again started their season very slow, and while they've got the offense to get out of their slump, it appears they'll need major goaltending help if they are to become the Stanley Cup contenders many expected them to be.

After a poor 2022-23 campaign, the Oilers once again looked to get Jack Campbell going as their starting goaltender, but unfortunately, he looked even worse, and now finds himself in the AHL likely awaiting a buyout in 2024.

Stuart Skinner has improved as of late, but if the Oilers want to make some noise this season, it will likely be because of a trade that lands them a star goaltender, with the likes of Carter Hart, Jordan Binnington and Juuse Saros all on their radar.

While those are all great targets, Hooked on Hockey Magazine have suggested another trade that would land them a star from a team that carries arguably the best goaltending duo in the NHL.

Edmonton receive; Linus Ullmark.

Boston receive; Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, 2024 second-round pick.

It may not seem like a huge return for Ullmark, but with Jeremy Swayman on the roster, they can afford to move one or the other, and with a major need for star power up front, this could be a deal that benefits both parties.
