The Edmonton Oilers are currently strategizing on how to build a winning team that can ultimately lead them to the coveted Stanley Cup. To achieve this goal, they are in need of another power forward.

It seems that Ken Holland, the Oilers' general manager, may have to explore options outside of Canada to secure their next forward and strengthen their already impressive forward core. One potential target could be Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals, who have been the subject of recent trade talks due to his upcoming unrestricted free-agency status.

Wilson is a dominant power forward with a physical presence on the ice. He can contribute offensively, stand up for his teammates, and excel in the power play. Given his postseason success and Stanley Cup ring, he would be an excellent addition to the Edmonton Oilers. However, it remains uncertain whether he would be willing to leave his current team.
If such a trade were to occur, Holland would need to make room for Wilson's salary by getting rid of one of their own players. Kailer Yamamoto, a former 20-goal scorer, could be a potential trade chip, allowing the Oilers to free up $3.1 million of cap space. This move would enable the team to acquire Wilson and continue developing Yamamoto, who is young enough to contribute elsewhere.
While Wilson would be a valuable asset for the Oilers, the challenge lies in making the cap work.
