It's not going well in Edmonton. The team is struggling defensively, which is not new, but they used to get by because they could score more goals than their opponents.

However, when you need to score four or five goals every game to have a chance of winning, and this has been the case for years, it eventually catches up with you. The Oilers are currently paying the price, and it's evident that they need to improve their defense, starting with the goaltenders.

There are many rumors about a trade between Montreal and Edmonton for Jake Allen, but another proposal has emerged. This comes from Boston Hockey Now. The foundation of the exchange would involve Linus Ullmark and Leon Draisaitl.

The Bruins have two solid goalies, while the Oilers have two solid first-line centers. Imagine a line with David Pastrnak, Leon Draisaitl, and Brad Marchand. That would be monstrous.


Personally, I don't believe the Oilers will part ways with Draisaitl. They should be able to acquire a good goaltender without having to sacrifice their core.
