Souray on the trade block?

The Edmonton Oilers could be trying to trade veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray and his $5.4 million cap hit, reports the Ottawa Sun.

According to the paper, the Oilers are shopping Souray, who has a no-trade clause and would have to approve any deal the team tries to make.

Souray, 32, has three-years left on his current contract.

The Sun claims Souray was offered as part of a four-player trade to an unidentified Eastern Conference team.

The Oilers have reportedly shown interest in Montreal Canadiens forwards Andrei and Sergei Kostitsyn, and the Sun reported earlier in the season that the Habs and Oilers were discussing a trade involving Edmonton center Andrew Cogliano.

This is really interesting. I heard this week some whispers that the Oilers were shopping Souray, but I didn't really believe them. Now this story comes out, so I'm fairly intrigued. As for the possible link to the Canadiens; I know the Habs never wanted to see Souray leave, and he's still very well liked in Montreal. If they can orchestrate a trade to get him back and everything fits, cap wise, they'd jump on it. But don't forget, Souray has the final say, regarding of which team shows interest. -- David Pagnotta
