The NHL Trade deadline is creeping up quicker than JT Miller's next temper tantrum. Team's are now looking over their rosters to see who to move and who to keep or to determine if they'll be buyers or sellers.

The Edmonton Oilers are expected to be doing a little bit of both, with the news that Ken Holland is trying to finally move forward Jesse Puljujärvi.

He's a very underated two way center and was the Playoff MVP for the London Knights back in the 2012 championship team, defeating the Niagra Ice Dogs in the OHL final in 5 games.


The Oilers might have to battle with their Alberta rivals because Mark Spector revealed the Calgary Flames are also interested in Watson along with the Boston Bruins.
