THE EDMONTON OILERS NEED TO STOP TRADE TALKS IMMEDIATELY REGARDING THIS DEFENSEMEN
Rumours are starting to pickup, and many believe the Edmonton Oilers will be picking up a defensemen any time now. A few names have popped into trade discussions such as Joel Edmundson, Jakob Chychrun and even Chychrun's teammate Shayne Gostisbehere, but Elliotte Friedman recently stated those fits are not possible, but one layer is.
Elliotte Friedman stated Vladisav Gavirkov of the Columbus Blue Jackets has been on the Oilers radar for a while, and we may be seeing a move be made in the next month. One thing that has came to light, is Gavrikov is nearing the top-10 defensemen in the NHL with the most turnovers, alongside Darnell Nurse who is already top 10 in giveaways by a defensemen throughout the entire NHL.
More details have surfaced regarding Gavrikov, and it really proves that the Oilers need to stop discussions, and stay away.. if he was something special, why would the Blue Jackets not hold onto him?
